  1. sky used to replay games during the week but these days the only game that gets replayed seems to be the Toronto game. perhaps the new super league boss could get all games put onto youtube with say a 3 day delay . I have seen London broncos put a few full games on youtube this season with that kind of delay so its certainly possible
  2. people just seem angry these days not only in rugby league but in everyday life . why cant people just take a breath and realise there acting like small children although I think I should really apologise to small children for the comparison at times
  3. it was been shown in Australia a good year or more ago and available on websites . have to agree its a good film not just from the rugby league angle but also the society over there and some of its attitudes to women and how those girls are helping to change it
  4. 11 a side is nothing new as it was played in the Leeds & district Sunday morning league back in the 1970s and to be honest at that level did not make much difference as the theory that there would be no full back and no loose forward never really happened as a player always dropped back to play full back and the defending scrum half often spent most of the time helping to push from the back of the scrum .
  5. so that's every super league that's not got a contract for next season then . bit surprised that Carl Ablett and Jamie Jones Buchanan are not on the list as I thought they had only been given one year contracts
  6. is rugby league dying in Yorkshire good question and to answer that the game needs to be strong at grassroots . 2018 NCL GRAND FINAL HUNSLET PARKSIDE V WEST HULL. seems its in better health than in Lancashire
  7. indeed they could also play more games if they want to but mine was just a solution to an unbalanced number that including the magic games as loop fixtures would bring up . oh for the days of 40 plus games a season
  8. well make one of the loop games an on the road game and that would even up the numbers
  9. hey when has stupidity stopped something been done . just imagine the outrage from the flat earth brigade if it promoted Toronto to the top of the middle 8s . its almost worth doing it just for that
  10. you never know but they did say its based on finishing positions in the league . now on your little theory can I add that if Toronto win the million quid game they may decide to give them 2 points and put them above rovers in the league . thus giving rovers a even number finishing position.mind you that would put them at the top of the middle 8s but hey ho gives plenty more chances to the more negative rugby league supporters to claim fix I suppose. I'm just joining in the fantasy possibilities that seem to be running wild
  11. they are going by finishing positions in the middle 8s as can be seen by the hull loop fixtures not including Leeds who finished 9th in the regular season but after the 8s were in 10th place so avoiding a loop fixture with hull fc. In effect rovers finished in 11th place at the end of the season .
  12. tell you what why don't we just have one big league of 34 clubs with no need for promotion or relegation like in the good old days and go back to those massive crowds of 4,000 for a Leeds v st helens game that I remember with such fondness
  13. sad news that ken eyre has died aged 76 . a fine prop forward for hunslet, Leeds and great Britain
  14. that's certainly the case . I go from Leeds to Belfast at least twice a month returning the same day and sometimes do the Dublin run in a day as well from Leeds . quicker to get to Belfast or Dublin by plane than it is to get to Cumbria by car if traveling from west Yorkshire
  15. does it need to be this round when both teams lose . ok Salford beat Toronto that's half the story but if next week Salford beat Leeds then its at the same situation with the prospect of a Leeds v Toronto game in the final round to decide which team goes into the million pound game .A game that would be as full of drama as the million pound game itself . a real will the million pound game be a game played in England or Canada situation going into the final week . now that's drama if only to see if sky would pay for someone to fly to Canada to talk to the players before or after the game if its held in Canada or would they stay in the little bunker in England . as for them meeting in the million pound game who do you see finishing in third position as I assume you have Salford and hull kr penciled in at 1 and 2 ?
