  1. "Preciousss club game, mussst be preserved at all cossstsss. ALL COSSSTSSSS! Even the futuressss of the sportsessssss as a wholessssss."
  2. I knew we shouldn't have hired Peter Jackson to direct this thread!
  3. I assumed so, but I didn't want to click back through several hundred posts on the same circular arguments.
  4. I'm just wondering if, in a case of the right hand not knowing that the left hand's doing, someone pulled the plug on all streamed matches, instead of just for the UK audience. Cockup, rather than conspiracy, in other words. Did your access to matches stop about the 19th of July?
  5. Has this been posted yet? They are planning to scupper the women's World Cup by pushing back the start of the NRLW season to October. Note that the World Cup does not get a single mention in this article. https://www.nrl.com/news/2021/07/30/nrlw-now-a-standalone-october-event-after-kick-off-delay/?utm_source=WomensFBContent&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=NetworkContent
  6. They stopped showing SL content on OurLeague when the lockdown restrictions were lifted earlier this month. It was announced to people on the OurLeague mailing list. Did subscribers to https://live.rugby-league.com/ not get a similar email?
  7. Look at the calendar - no games listed at all: https://live.rugby-league.com/calendar/?lang=en/
  8. Looking at their schedule, Fox League 502 shows all or almost all televised SL games. Now OurLeague has stopped their season ticket-holder's streaming service, I don't think anybody shows the non-Sky games. Back to normal, then.
  9. It is worth checking out Blanquette as well as Cremant, if you like sparkling wine. Made to the same method, only with a different mix of grapes.
  10. Fresh uncooked peas, straight from the pod in June, are great. By July, they aren't nearly as good. Tinned garden peas are okay, but a bit dull. I prefer marrowfat peas, with a little mint.
  11. The wheels are coming off for the home side. Cameron Smith in by the posts.
  12. I recently realised I hadn't had cannelloni in years. Quickly remedied this month. Version 1 - filled with ricotta, white crab meat and chopped king prawns. Nice, but I'd add more seasoning if I did it again. Version 2 (last night) - filled with a sort of beef ragu. Very tasty and satisfying. You can't beat the classics.
  13. I missed out on the Sixties sitcoms, but some of the Seventies and Eighties imports bring back a nostalgic glow. Especially Taxi.
  14. Part-Welsh, and always get right behind the national side (when they get to play).
  15. Ron "set it and forget it" Popeil, founder of Ronco, who made many convenience products, some of which actually worked.
  16. I've been kicking some ideas around for a parody of Iron Chef Japan with a couple of friends. Of course I got carried away and wrote a whole episode. Here it is... Black screen with Brillat-Savarin quote "Tell me what you eat, and I'll tell you what you are." Kenji Fukui: “Five years ago, a man's fantasy became a reality in a form never seen before; Kitchen Stadium, a giant cooking arena. The motivation for spending his fortune to create Kitchen Stadium was to encounter new original cuisines which could be called true artistic creations. To realise his dream, he secretly started choo
