  1. As far as I know, we're just the GB Lions this year. Ireland not included. They're probably relieved. Still, your average foreigner doesn't get the difference between England and the UK.
  2. The UK ? Have they ever had a team ? It depends how you view the Northern Union team pre-1921.
  3. What will people think when they turn up at a building site ?
  4. Dunno - didn't Boris cabbage a six year old at some photo opportunity a few years ago ?
  5. Aye, but the split weekends that create the byes are scheduled around the State of Origin games, are they not ?
  6. Nothing to do with the RFL. That was the miners' strike.
  7. You're wrong there, Johnny. The Captain Morgan Trophy was for the eight quarterfinalists of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Cups. If you got that far, you were in it. You couldn't say no. Not sure about the BBC Floodlit Cup but I think you could only get out of it if you didn't have lights. I wasn't into reading the Official Guide at that time.
  8. Well, I liked it. It needs a few tweaks - no midweek games would be good - but it gives Championship clubs a realistic chance of winning summat.
  9. A lot of clubs are propped up by a rich bloke. And not just in Rugby League. Nothing to see here. Move along, please.
  10. Bit of clarification needed in the OP. "The ball carrying arm" is different from "the ball". The reference to ball carrying arm is more to do with a tackle being complete. For a drop out - or a try - we need to consider what's happening to the ball.
  11. When the whole project's done, it'll be big enough to stage the Challenge Cup Final.
  12. You're thinking of a week and a half at Christmas. Could be different for lazy folk in the Heavy Woollen Area, obviously.
  13. Well, looks like the Scarborough Group are making their move. Contractors appointed and work starts in the dead of winter in December. I'd like to see a few bricks in place but it's more than we've had over the last two years. Watch this space. Or, rather, the space surrounding the pitch at the OLP.
  14. What could ? The bid was by the Scarborough Group. Nothing to do with Sheffield United or Sheffield United Ladies. The Scarborough Group have a deal. They should honour it. Or at the very least, back out of it. Agree with you it's not too promising, though. Mainly because no one has the guts to put their foot down with a firm hand.
  15. Now is probably not the best time to be attracting brand new supporters to the OLP. They'll take one look and probably never come again. What's needed is for the winning bidder to fulfil what he claimed he was going to do in his bid. If he can't - or won't - do that, he needs to say so and then Sheffield City Council can move forward. Let's not forget that he wasn't the only bidder for this project.
  16. Spelt like Weigh, rhymes with Weigh, folk from Lay are Laythers - how can it be Lee ?
  17. On the one hand, you've got gallant folk in Hull and Middlesbrough fighting for years to get back into Yorkshire. On the other, you've folk claiming "Oh no, we're from Cheshire/Cumbria/Greater Manchester/Merseyside". There are still Yorkshire folk today living under the jackboot of occupation by Durham, Cumbria and Greater Manchester. That "Welcome to Durham" sign on the A66 annoys me no end - no part of Durham is south of the Tees.
