  1. Youre right with that lot, LE. The new proposal looks a right dogs breakfast
  2. The situation in the 5 Scottish Highlands ski areas http://www.winterhighland.info/
  3. True enough but wouldnt play in teh golf be finished by 6pm/ Its pitch black round these parts not long after
  4. Apperarences at Wembley (CC) and Elland Road (WCC), 4th on the table and SL semi final...but ultimately no pot. Does that make it a good season or a bad one? When does ambition and high expectation become greed?
  5. The First Gulf War finished in 1991 (Scarborough rock band Little Angels dropped their proposed album title of 'Bomber' then, thought a bit tasteless), but the RL club rebrands didnt happen till 1996
  6. The original marketing idea for Halifax was 'Bombers'. If I recall, the club was even listed in League Express as such for a few weeks. Then some shrewd chap thought that synergising the X in Halifax and Sox just might attract sponsorship from Halifax ('Get a little Xtra help, dee dee dah dah dah, from the Halifax') Building Society as it then was. It didnt and the name didnt either
  7. Bring back that rugby ball shaped clock! fantastic
  8. Yes it would under the existing formula, but this is longwinded and over complicated, and when 8th is involved open to ridicule. Everyone has a preference, mine would be:- Week 1 - 1 bye, 2v5, 3v4 (ie 2 eliminators) Week 2 - 1 bye, 2 v 3 (one eliminator) Week 3 - final Top 5 are involved, 6th downwards dont deserve to be Fewer games so our best players are less knackered by the time the internationals come round Use the exta week gained for something useful (week off before 4N, mid season international, WCC) Removes games that arnt eliminators Obviates preposterous 'club call' Saves rehashing the same 'big' fixtures to the point where they are routine Most importantly, gives real value to finishing top
  9. The Minor Premiers should collect the shield and go straight to the finalno further justification needed.
  10. A fine example of sartorial elegence. Wore one meself during the 1995 WC opener, far touchline about 20 yards from halfway at teh front, and my red rimmd glasses of the time which were, frankly, preposterous - captured by Ray French et al for posterity
  11. Don't forget the young children led away in tears, theres always a few of them
  12. Maybe we should all just accept that this is sport not clinical surgery and inconsistency has and always will happen
  13. Another Donkey day out, England v France from Shedingley, many texts complementing my beret and home made tricolour flag
  14. Obvious anti-Saints conspiracy, Ray As a variation to this subject, what is the ruling when a player kicks a second ball on? Remenber that one as clearly?
