  1. Geoff Burrow Robs dad has said Kev is like another son to me and he's done enough Kevs health must now be considered " .
  2. I just wish they would it done and do the research properly by visiting other renouned museums and attractions. We dont want anything cheapskate.
  3. I'm not a fervent traditionalist ,but let's not denigrate the town of Wigan. It is after all the most famous Rugby town in the world RL or RU without a doubt . I dont know the reason why it's being moved from Liverpool, but that city has only in recent years resurrected itself it may have been famous ,but it wasnt world class. I've always liked the pubs in Wigan and felt safe
  4. When I was a young boy late 50s early 60s to me Featherstone seemed to have a higher profile than Cas very vociferous crowd
  5. Well if only by two fixtures that boosted two clubs average attendance. So that's two and it is a large city with a big population
  6. How would the RFL get the funds for a national RL stadium ?
  7. Its generally agreed that the game needs a Bradford team competing in SL . When Bradford Bulls got into financial difficulties a few years ago the RFL took the leasehold of Odsal and then a it later Bradford moved out . I wonder why the RFL took over the lease just to hold on to it? It wont happen but if the sport was going to have it's own stadium I think Braford maybe not Odsal but develop a new site . The sport hasn't the finances to do that independently.
  8. I grew up in Bramley the Brozdlea estate and the older lads who got me into RL came from the the. Leeds RL heartlands Kirkstall, kirkstall road and Burley etc. And although we played football at school at home we played RL Headingley just up the Hill and BarleyMow up the hill in other dire action. Only time football was on TV was the FA CUPFINAL in the 50s and not all had TVs . Going to Elland road was like a big journey once or twice a year . Just like first time I went go Parkside it was like a long journey. I supported 2 clubs Bramley and Leeds .
  9. I would love to see Bradford back at the top challenging, Bradford is also a large city which should be at the top . No disrespect to the great fans who are still supporting the Bulls / Northern, but remember Bradford have been given helping hands in the past .
  10. I'm old enough to remember the massive rivalry between Leeds and Hunslet. They used to get 20k for the pre season " charity Friendly " The Lazenby cup and that had to be stopped because the players bought into the rivalry and were getting injured before the season started . The late great Harry Jepson told me that . That went with the demise of Hunslet and also the traditional area many of the residents migrated to different parts of the city .,Leeds and Bradford are so close they just about touch and there was a big hot rivalry when Bradford were above Leeds for awhile which spured Leeds on to match them that almost matched the Leeds Hunslet rivalrybof yesteryear . Hopefully Bradford will return
  11. Is Terry Webb an old Leeds player from the 80s involved with Redcliffe ? Sorry if this has been mentioned before I've just logged in
  12. League Leaders seemed to have stumbled at the grand final on a number of occasions. I'm sure that will be on the minds of Catalans in their preparation. The first 20 minutes will be interesting
  13. I would like to see Catalans win ,I would like to see Catalans breakthrough. I think it will be good for the sport . Nothing against St Helens thetey are a good team. I really dont know who will win .I hope it's a great final
  14. Weren't Hunslet refused administration to SL on account of the South Leeds stadium not reaching the criteria?
  15. Featherstone have a Super league standard ground Cas and Wakey dont . Fev have done something right
  16. I've got respect for Saints as a club .when it was Saints and Leeds who on a par no difference between the two competing. At the end of that cycle Leeds fell away Saints had continuity . Fair play to them
  17. I used to live in USA in the retirement complex we lived in there was a large elderly man wheelchair bound .He played for New York Giants in the mid 50s to mid 60s . He said they weren't very well compared to the present day NFL players. He said the NFL are picking up the tab for his occomodation and his care otherwise he wouldn't be able to afford it .
  18. I think Padge is right , although I would like to see a new name on the SL winners list I like to think I'm neutral unless Cats are playing well and giving a good account of themselves I would start to root for them as the game gets exciting. I've only ever rooted for two teams and Bramley is not there any more now it's just one
