  1. Cut it out. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-64796080.amp
  2. Smith will have a long wait. I'm also a genius waiting to be unleashed and after only 78 years, I'm still waiting....
  3. https://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/sisk-wins-contract-for-man-city-stadium-expansion/
  4. Agreed. And it's a good start. It would be good to see this sort of stuff promoted on the mainstream printed, on line and broadcast media.
  5. Conveyancing solicitors That is all. Oh, and Purple Bricks.
  6. What about the married ones? Is the objection to playing the same two teams teams three times in quick succession the reason we don't have an Aussie ashes competition any more?
  7. How reliable is the source of this story? It just seems to be an opportunity for his critics to have a go. If I were him, not only would I be nearly 50 years younger than I really am, I'd stay in the NRL. His previous return to England was, I believe for "family" reasons and maybe his current form ( and I've not seen him play this season) is a hangover from that. As for Leeds "not touching him with a bargepole" , beggars can't be choosers, and having him on board would double the Leeds skill-base.
  8. Yes, in that I'm still alive and here to cause trouble on here.
  9. It's not (just) about the money. It's also about knocking a few heads together to get some action.
  10. The whole Re-imagining Rugby League project makes the prospect of an acquisition, merger, take-over more appealing to the NRL since it shows that finally, at last, the sport here is putting itself on a sound and professional basis. Such a merger will catapult the sport into the national sporting consciousness.
  11. Trust me, it's easy to give up drinking. Just get really ill and get the doc to prescribe medication that mandates no alcohol. Well, that's what I did in 2018/2019 and still no alcohol.
  12. It's not a matter of politics to be outraged at this. It's a matter of (lack of) humanity and yes, the perpetrators must be pursued....and revealed to the local public.
  13. I realise that this is specifically about the grading element of the Reimagining project, but as it's coming up to 5000 replies, I zoomed out so I could try to see the big picture, as a reminder of what it's all about. https://www.rugby-league.com/article/60992/reimagining-rugby-league-–-img-presents-recommendations

  15. I like close games with the result in doubt to the very last moment.. ...unless it's my team that's playing. In that situation, yes, close is exciting, but only up to a point. I did find today's game worth watching as we're playing the winner in the Cup Final and want to see what the opposition looked like. And Connor, Man of Steel manque, is always good value to watch.
  16. Giants clearly not used to the oxygen-,laden atmosphere of the lowlands. They should have spent the week acclimatising.
  17. Yes. Get a food taster for a start. Hide the toaster when you have a bath. Check you car brakes work properly before driving off your drive. Don't use any ladders you haven't checked and don't go on any balconies. And whatever you do, don't turn your back on your Mrs.
  18. This is incorrect. Players make questionable decisions and the ref rules in accordance with the rules, exactly as he did today. For example, the ref doesn't lose contact with the ball when making a heroic dive for the line. The ref doesn't get caught offside at a grubber kick. The ref doesn't drop the ball when playing it or when getting tackled.
  19. In my view, Hull KR were pretty good...but that's not good enough when we're on song. With Lewis, they were always in with a chance but they came across a Wigan team determined to get to Wembley. Quicker round the play the ball , though not as quick as Hull KR, but quicker thinking and with more field vision than Hull KR. Hull KR not making the best use of Hall, either. In my view, they need to bring him in-field more in attack. One factor was to me that our discipline was better than it has been of late to though they can do better.
  20. Sporting Events (Control of Alcohol etc.) Act 1985 http://www.statutelaw.gov.uk/content.aspx?...xtDocId=1300758 Essentially it's illegal to possess alcohol, drink alcohol, or be drunk on a vehicle principally being used to convey passengers to specific sporting events. Also for private vehicles > 8 passengers the driver and hirer cannot knowingly allow it to take place, so a coach driver is perfectly entitled to prevent alcohol being brought on board, and also confiscate it (the alternative is to kick them off if they don't agree!)
