  1. "name will crop up again about a fortnight into the season when Piggys mate goes through his annual ritual of asking the dogs faithful, which of our players they would sign for 2021 following our inevitable relegation in 2020. " Predictable as ever, but earlier than usual.
  2. It does give the Rams and Bulls fans chance to join in with the relentlessly moronic "Leeds, Leeds, Leeds" song for free, so big plus there. I will be washing my hair that day.
  3. I used to buy programs. I still keep a few from the seventies and eighties in a drawer, which I occasionally wheel out just to remind me what my last replica shirt looked like. They are tatty, covered in beer stains and tomato sauce, and the team sheets have scratched out names alongside the relevant team changes, which means they are hardly collectors items, BUT I can't bring myself to bin them. Back in those cold winters days, they gave you something to read at half time (between swigs from the hip flask), and often, along with the Reporter, were the main source of club news. I suppose in the current climate of twitter, facebook and rugby forums, programs have become something of an irrelevance, but maybe clubs should remember that not everybody is online, and the provision of a team sheet for anybody asking for one should be mandatory for all clubs, even if they have to levy a small charge to cover the costs. Sobering thought that when I bought those seventies programs, you still had to go to Spain if you wanted a pint of San Miguel.
  4. I have completed it, however I don't see how them knowing my age, sex, financial status, mental capacity, ethnicity and personal details such as name, email address and phone number is pertinent to my opinions on the sport, particularly as some of them are marked as mandatory. I suspect the only info gathered and used will be my phone number and email address (good luck to them with that BTW).
  5. Forward for sure, but didn't Muranka finish it off well ? He certainly left a few rams trailing in his wake on his run to the line. Always liked Jason when we had him, and he never got the chances his ability deserved thanks to the "mates only" policy of the then coach . Still looks like a player who could go on to better things
  6. Ryder's name will crop up again about a fortnight into the season when Piggys mate goes through his annual ritual of asking the dogs faithful, which of our players they would sign for 2021 following our inevitable relegation in 2020.
  7. Don't talk up our players SB, it's certain to herald the appearance of a fat, bald, video camera wielding flat capper at the Tetley's, followed inevitably by a massive drop in form by the player, and rumors he will be joining a rival club in the Pontefract area for 2021 (other "tappers" are available).
  8. Iggy has the talent to go as far as he wants to go in the game IMO, and I (lone voice apparently) would have loved him to have stayed and proved just how good he can be. Seems he might be a disruptive influence, but that might be sorted out by a strong coach. Wish him well at Oldham.
  9. Merry Christmas to all the Rams faithful, and the poor misguided souls over the valley.
  10. Oakes ? Played there before, and would give us a pacey back line with Gabby, and Davey on the flanks.
  11. Good luck SB - hope everything goes OK. Not quite sure which one of us has the worst gig.
