  1. https://www.allaboutnrl.com/2020/02/07/kevin-locke-signs-with-lower-grade-club/amp/ Sadly, his marriage seems to have ended in 2018: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/jan/14/chelsea-pitman-australia-netball-england-kevin-locke
  2. Yep. https://insideevs.com/news/359939/tesla-model-s-900000-kilometers-odometer/
  3. I love the early 90's retro designs, particularly the jacket. But I also live in Ireland and enjoy not being beaten up, so I think I'll have to pass...
  4. That's the way to go. I've heard a number of electric car owners say that, when initially looking at them, they only thought in terms of replacing going to the petrol station, where it's more like plugging in your phone when you get home. My friend who has a charger at some tells me he's only needed to use a Supercharger a couple of times in nearly 3 years. The charger and the car sync together, and you can set it to charge to whatever battery percentage you like, if you want to be kind to the battery and not charge to 100% if you don't need it. You can also get it to only charge at certain times, if there's an off-peak electricity rate you can avail of.
  5. I don't have one myself, but I have followed the progress of electric cars quite keenly over the last few years. The Tesla Model 3 has the range that would make the change from an internal combustion car fairly stress free. If you can opt for the 75kWh battery, you'd have real peace of mind. I have a friend who has a Model S with a 75kWh battery, and he regularly goes on 5-hour round trip journeys, and has plenty of charge left. And the 75kWh Model 3 will go even further. Getting a home charger is apparently the real game-changer. You just get into the swing of "refuelling" at home. The Tesla Owners UK Facebook group might be worth looking into, and asking if there is someone nearby who could show you theirs. Martin Offiah is on it regularly enough!
  6. I believe he had a good few offers from NRL clubs when he was last signing a new contract, in 2017.
  7. Saints can look forward to a few passing to the wing drills this week.

  9. He doesn't seem able to cope well when things aren't going his way.
  10. The same thing struck me about the "Little Germany" of Bradford while wandering around there in 2004. I don't know what it's like now but, back then, every second building seemed to be vacant, and they beautiful.
  11. Most immediately, he needs to avoid wearing A-line dresses.
  12. I'm considering travelling over from Ireland at some stage this season to take my 7 year-old to see a game of "proper Rugby", as he puts it. Would anyone have any suggestions as to clubs that provide a better environment for youngsters? I'd even consider the Championship...
  13. I'm interested to see how he plays. The truth be told, I'd love the chance to see something of a 2008-era Folau again. Does that make me evil?!
