  1. They're going to have a job shifting him off that sandbank he seems to have foundered on.
  2. Been some outstanding tries scored straight from scrums in the NRL in recent weeks. Take the scrum away and that's a little bit more variety lost from the game. That said, I've really enjoyed the first half. The set restart rule is a great innovation and the restriction on the third man in is long overdue.
  3. Always see (and hear) loads of yellowhammers in the East Yorkshire countryside. They're one of the most common birds in the area.
  4. Agree on both points, mate. If it's not safe to have scrums it's not safe to play. Disappointed that when the game resumes it's going to be as Rugby League Lite but the scrum will be back I'm sure of that.
  5. And a very familiar piece of music to anybody who has ever seen Metallica live. They've come on stage to it for years. Makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Metallica honour Ennio Morricone: ‘Your Career was Legendary, Your Compositions Timeless’
  6. I'm guessing it stands for Desert Island Discs.
  7. To be fair, it is a discussion about whether a redeveloped Elland Road would be of benefit to rugby league when it comes to staging big games.
  8. Hull won the right to be in Super League on the field by finishing top of Division One in 1997.
  9. Or Heineken UK as it is now. It really is brewing on an industrial scale. The site seems as big as the whole town.
  10. That's because it's in the East Riding. You've clearly being going to the wrong parts of Yorkshire (Leeds perhaps?).
  11. One thing I like about Goole is that the the docks are still in the heart of the town. In larger ports they've all moved further out of town to bigger and deeper facilities so you don't get to watch the shipping movements. As a kid I used to love walking under the bows of ships almost on the pavement poking out of Princes Dock smack in the centre of Hull.
  12. Aye, it might seem like a nonsense to transport it from the other side of the world but sea freight is so cost efficient it costs less to bring a TV from China than it does to get it from the dealer to your house.
  13. Me and my mrs were on the train from Hull to Doncaster a couple of years back. As we crossed the Ouse the conductor announced "Ladies and gentlemen we are approaching Goole, yes I'm afraid we do have to stop there".
  14. You might be thinking of Woodhead tunnel between Sheffield and Manchester. It was closed to rail traffic several years ago.
  15. Yes, a 62-0 hammering followed by Shaun Wane's bizarre let them book their coaches to London comment.
  16. I'm sure Hatfield Main was still standing the last time we went past on the train.
  17. There's something truly evocative about pit winding gear.
  18. If you like your Victorian engineering then "The Architecture the Railways Built" on the Yesterday TV channel is well worth catching up on.
  19. Desperately sad news Always enjoyed reading his posts about developments in Germany.
  20. “Albert and Ratu I envisage as being our only departures." Thanks for the link, good news.
  21. Heard then saw a couple of reed buntings in a field of oilseed rape near Hilston this morning.
