  1. Is it really the job of the referee to tell players from one side to go and get a drink as they've got plenty of time?
  2. Pre Covid, used to see somebody in Staines in FC Lezignan kit which must have confused him as I often had SO Avignon gear on! Will have a look next time I venture into there and may wear my 2021 FCL replica to confuse him further!
  3. IIRC the horse racing they advertised was Royal Ascot which finished last Saturday!
  4. Tried reloading couple of times but again ran for 5 seconds or so then buffered. Thanks for the answer.
  5. viaoccitanie kept freezing but was fine on sportenfrance. Watching on Chromebook so any suggestions why viaoccitanie keeps freezing as had same problem with final and couple of previous games?
  6. Thanks, was looking on BBC1 and 2 which used to have link to red button. New technology baffles ###### old technophobe !
  7. TBH result could have been far worse for Oldham as Skolars missed a few scoring chances and on another night could have hit 50. Looked like Skolars were matching the opposition in the pack for first time this season. No criticism of previous squads but they were (almost) newcomers at that level and couple of older heads made the difference.
  8. Good footage when it works and decent crowd but remember being there for Villeneuve/St Esteve and stand shown was full.
  9. Lucky you! Mine has gone back to stop/start and even trying to go via Facebook is giving same result!
  10. Just me or does anybody else have problem with feed, runs for about 20 seconds then stops?
  11. According to this I was both right and wrong ! ! ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baroudeurs_de_Pia_XIII
  12. Have a good time but hope the entertainment is better than the Johnny Haliday lookalike they had when I saw Villeneuve v St Esteve plus no thunderstorm this time!
  13. Interesting read but I have always been told Pia Barouders are a separate side to the previous Les Anes who were in Elite 1. Not sure either if Pia is now a suburb of Perpignan due to urban sprawl or still classed as an independent village?
  14. How many schools still run trips? First final I ever attended was as part of school trip (train from Hull with many other schools, trip round London, final, evening at theatre then train back with special buses laid on as train arrived around 2am!)
  15. Possibly but as it's council owned depends on them. Running the stadium has been taken back in house by Harringey Council as Fusion were useless. They may be open to long term lease perhaps by RFL if they also run football, gym, athletics etc?
  16. Remember the interest Rugby League Raw caused. The old TVS reckoned it was the best viewed programme in it's timeslot in an area hardly rich in TGG! Was getting calls for when my amateur team were playing from people who'd seen the show and were interested in watching a live game. OK, some only came to one game but others became regular or semi regular spectators.
  17. Would have thought a more worrying comparison would have been with speedway. Apparently second largest spectator sport in the 1970s (their figures so may be suspect but certainly well attended) and now on life support, even with TV money.
  18. I remember being at St Esteve for World Cup game (PNG & ?) and the buffet. Wonder whatever happened to M Rosbif?
  19. Brunel Ducks, Bracknell/Thames Valley Tigers, London Leopards all gone! Remember Virgin Radio giving away tickets for Leopards in competitions (won and got to meet a former Miss World who was handing out signed basketballs) but even at that game there were at best 600, in the London Docklands Arena (didn't know who opposition were and turned up in Sheffield Eagles shirt to find it was the Steelers!) Tigers played at local sports centre and when I moved here they had full main hall, by the end they were in smallest hall with crowd under 100. Locally basketball has a decent and well attended academy for 6-18s but not sure where they go after reaching 18?
  20. The campaign against the Cathars is often referred to as the Albigensian crusade, one branch of christianity persecuting another. BTW Villeneuve sur Lot apparently was the place built for the locals after the destruction of Pujols
  21. Beware of on street parking as this year has seen introduction of a match day parking zone that extends about 2 miles from Tottenham's stadium - Skolars ground falls within the area and is about 1.8 miles away as many people parking on the road outside have discovered to their cost! https://www.haringey.gov.uk/parking-roads-and-travel/parking/controlled-parking-zones-cpzs/tottenham-event-day-cpz/tottenham-event-day-cpz-map Oh and it's inside ULEZ so add on another £12.50 for a car.
  22. I suggest he has a strong word with the person who negotiated the deal they currently have in place!
  23. Took the 12225 number from Wikipedia and Thestadiumbusiness so apologies if they are incorrect.
