  1. Strange game and I was happy to see the warriors win as they are doing it tough, but the emotion in the young fella when he knocked on late in the game was hard to see. There is a real emotional punch to the NRL this year, fans and players appreciating something that was nearly lost perhaps.
  2. Cracking game, but noticed the commentators not even attempting to explain why a set was reset.
  3. Very sad news https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-53186916
  4. Interesting video on youtube on the great Roy Francis
  5. I literally drive past the ‘welcome to the rhondda’ sign everyday to go to work - glyncoch is not in the rhondda
  6. Interesting article in the guardian https://www.theguardian.com/sport/no-helmets-required/2020/jun/09/premiership-park-pitches-rugby-referee-switched-codes-union-league

  8. A fair question, lets compare. 6th in the IRB rankings Wales, annual income £94m 6th richest NHL team LA Kings, annual income $203m Outside the top ten RU national teams annual income: diddly squat NHL teams by income 11-31, combined annual income $2974m - they could buy aussie rugby from the petty cash tin!
  9. Defnitely - Seattle paid 650 million dollars to get a franchise in the NHL! You could buy most of the RU prem for that.
  10. Interesting attempt to start developing relationships with the community game, my local team the Rhondda Outlaws (who aren’t based in the Rhondda!) tweeted enthusiastically about this, but like WM i would be interested to know the conditions.
  11. Nice BBC article on the great man Lance Todd: Who was the man whose name adorns the Challenge Cup final's man of the match award? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/52590070
