  1. Very true. In Rochdale, Hornets own Graham Starkey, himself a RU convert, did much to promote League in his position as PE teacher at junior high/middle school level. But kids then went on the high school and came up against ex grammer school teachers who refused to recognise League. I loved playing league but as soon as I reached high school I was shunted to the wing because of my small size and never saw the ball in three years. Starkey was a wonderful teacher and a great bloke.
  2. I was fortunate enough to live it and yes, it never grows old!
  3. For those located outside the UK its just appeared on book depository site with free mailing costs anywhere in the world. Its also listed with 7% below RRP. Might not make it in time for Xmas, but just received my Rugby League Yearbook this morning which i ordered through book depository early November.
  4. Just appeared on Book Depository so those outside of UK can get it post free. Also 7% discount on RRP Cost me $29.28AUD
  5. Great stuff…love those posts, square profile and no padding!
  6. Apologies to anyone if my attempt at a humurous response using words meant to reflect a rochdale accent caused offence. They certainly didnt pass the censor. The blocked out words were accented derivations on the word ‘come’. As anyone who has ever visited the grand old town knows…people in Rochdale dont say ‘come’. Come on Hornets old chaps!
  7. RRP? Also any chance of book depository carrying it? Means those overseas dont have to pay exorbitant mail charges.
  8. Whichever year you choose it still means you are a johnny ###### lately club compared to the mighty Rochdale Hornets celebrating 150 years of continuous rugby this year (war shutdowns excepted). ###### on ornits
  9. First game of the season is the Centenary of beating Oldham in the QF. Lets party! Doubt we could manage 26664 again but it would be nice to get 2666. Unfortunately biffos and swinton both at home that day so we cant expect them to help us celebrate.
  10. A bit unfortunate that this game will mark 100 years since our challenge cup win. Would have been nice to have a home game against a local rival which could have been built up into a festival similar to Dales celebration of 100 years of league football backin August.
  11. Yes I was, well and truly humbled by a better team, Oldham were not always offside, and their passes were not forward….just the better team on the day. Its great our rivalry returns this year.
  12. Not quite, you must have forgotten how we beat toulouse at their place in the play off final in 2016, the only game they were ‘To-lose’ all season. Yes we have things to celebrate in the current century. You also must have forgotten the Lancs Cup finals in 1911 (beat roughyheads 12-5) and 1919 ( 22-0 v roughyheads). To be fair in the next season the result was reversed, Oldham winning 7-0. But the centenary of our SECOND greatest day in our history will be celebrated next april when we beat a yorkshire team (Hull) in yorkshire (headingly) 10-9 in the challenge cup final. What could possibly beat that you ask…….we beat Owdum 5-2 in the QF. I expect we were offside at every play and all our passes were forward that day too. What a referee! Come on Arthur…we all know we are your second favourite team

  14. 1pm ko and a minimum 6 hour drive (probably more on holiday weekends) to Penryn so set your alarm clocks
  15. I don’t think the Kirklees taxpayers need to be RL fans, they just need reassuring that any investment will generate sufficient business in Kirklees to make a return on the investment. The national football museum moved from its spiritual home in Preston to Manchester because it didn’t pay its way. In Manchester charges were introduced presumably for the same reason.
  16. It looked brilliant…I was there and probably the most enjoyable game of rugby I have ever attended as a neutral. Absolutely no problem identifying the teams though those two teams could have played naked and it would still have been a fantastic game.
  17. No problem Arthur…..I had that nightmare too, but then things took a turn for the better and we got sweet revenge at Easter. Let the games commence!
  18. After 150 years, we wouldnt want it any other way.
  19. Now hang on a minute you biffos! Thats OK, we dont mind the occasional swipe (in good taste). Glad we are back playing each other, just wish it could have been in the championship. Roll on Easter. Cummon Ornits
  20. Far prefer watching a game at NSO than at Redcliffe…hardly any shade and inadequate catering for large crowds. Its now a concrete oven miles from anywhere. But thats why they will play most games at suncorp and wont carry the name of the franchise location. A team with no identity
  21. No…7 hour drive to cornwall….on bank holiday weekends
  22. i think it was the champions of the lancashire cup and the yorkshire cup , not the ones the semi pros played for but the amateur versions. Cumbrian team,s played in the lancs competition i think. i recall mayfield getting so close several times and then finally made it (1975 maybe) where they ran the then New Hunslet very close.
  23. Spanky was a great cumbrian in the strong Workington team of 60s. Also played for Whitehaven and Barrow (and I expect Cumberland). No idea how he got the nickname, but could be an interesting story in there!
