    There's a new Yorkshire soul band called Super Strut. 4 x women (sax, trumpet, trombone and singer) 4 x men (guitar, bass, drums and keyboards). They are not just good; they are really really good.

    Their showreel is from early 2021 rehearsals and doesn't give a true picture of where they are now. Believe me, they are the business live. Bradfordians can catch them at the Juke Bar on May 20th.

    Just up the road from Newark, it takes longer to drive through it than walk through it. The traffic's a sod.

    I have a client near there at Hoveringham. For many years, half of Bradford's mixconcrete wagons were run by "Hoveringham Gravels". Given that Bradford currently has a population of ~500,000, when I first went to my client's firm, i asumed that Hoveringham would be a biggish town. It's actually a size equivalent to about two terraced streets in Bradford, and accessed down country lanes. I manage to get lost most times that I go there.

    There's a village in Peru called Llama. Only thing of any note there is a bullring, at least that's all that looked interesting about the place on Google maps....

    Would you rather live in Llama or Leigh?? 😁

    Llama, obviously. At least they've had the common decency to spell it with the Welsh "LL".

  4. 1. I'd have Steve Patterson is as captain. He's done a fantastic job at Yorkshire. Especially as, beforehand, he wasn't an automatic selection as a player.

    2. Matt Parkinson can bowl people out in the second innings as well as anyone else in the game.

    3. My Combined Roses Team:

    Lythe Buttler Root Malan Brook Bairstow Livingstone Mahmood Patterson Anderson Parkinson

    4. My Combined Other Counties Team:

    Sibley Crawley Duckett Vince Stokes Moeen Pope Foakes Woakes C Overton Wood

    5. Neither team can pick reliable openers. I think Alex Hales is the best but he's stepped away from four-day cricket. I haven't considered Adil Rashid for the same reason.

    Honest Woolly you want a Lancastrian who is also a born and bred Leigh lad, never!

    Yes, but he had a great career with the Bulls and must still be reminiscing about the new experiences he gained by playing over this side of the border ... e.g tarmac roads, dentists, shoes without wooden soles, stunning looking women, BBC2 etc. In fairness there were also things he missed out on by travelling ... diptheria, bronco toilet paper, kids having NHS glasses with sticking plaster over one lens, breeze-block town halls,  comedy accents etc.

  6. Now would be a good time to join the Bulls as a coach.

    Results-wise, you can only improve on them. Absolutely no-one thinks the Bulls could get promoted.

    Academy ... amongst the best in the country.

    training facilities ... first rate

    Financial turnover higher than most Championship clubs ... come September, can buy new players and/or offer more money to the good ones.

    I had a friend who played for Pontypool in the 1970's when it was one of the best rugby union teams in Britain. At that time, there were no full-time players. When any new player joined, he was told in no uncertain teams by the coach (Ray Prosser ... a legend in the game) that the club wasn't there to get any player fit. It was the player's job to get himself fit and the club's job to coach him.

    From the terrace, I'd say that 60% of the Bulls players look a at least a stone overweight compared to their Superleague contemporaries. I remember Joe Vagana saying that, when he was at the Bulls, players were given diets and weighed every week. If somebody came in and instilled a similar regime, there'd be no doubt about making the playoffs ... which is as much as we can hope for with this squad and this pitch.

  8. The team has been too soft all season.

    I've hated Kear's one dimensional rugby from the day he arrived. It'll keep you in this division but never get you promoted. Stalwarts arrive and youngsters leave.

    I'd like Scott Naylor to be the new coach, if he's interested. He'd put a bit of passion into a team that's got more talent than results indicate.
