    The plan is vaccination. It’s been a slow rollout and the success of eliminating widespread COVID for much of the last 18 months, moreso than most countries on this planet, has allowed the government the luxury to ensure that the right vaccination programme proceeds. 

    The time is now to get moving on that strategy though and we are seeing uplift in vaccinations, so we will get there very soon.

    That’s about all I’ve got to say about our Federal and individual State government’s plans for overcoming the threat of COVID.

    Surely the answer is another hard lock down ? 🤣

    It's been a source of irritation for me at Widnes that we had the original camera gantry purpose built in the top of the South stand facing North (where most people sit), in a perfect position and then decided to change it.

    Now it's in the North, at a much lower height so the angle looks rubbish on TV and it points at a stand no one sits in with for reasons only the council know, burgundy seats. 

    me too! but the South Stand gantry is still there though isn't it? The facilities in the South Stand were a later addition if I remember correctly

    Game postponed, Kinsleys ground has a tribe of Travellers camping on it!!!

    Travellers Rest ARLFC?

    Seem to remember a team or similar named team from the National Cup in the 80's&90's but based in Widnes was never sure where they were from? Did they actually exist and where are / were they from - Wakefield area?



  4. Watching the Giro d'Italia earlier in the year there were sections of mountain climbs were the 'tifosi' would be running alongside the cyclist screaming encouragement in their ears, and, on at least one occasion I viewed the cyclist was actually being pushed the hill with a hand on his back. The commentators just seemed to think this was par for the course and added to the spectacle, nothing wrong apparently

  5. Now that clubs in the main seem not to be printing physical copies of programmes, I wonder if the value of the traditional printed programme will see an increase in value as they are now basically historical artefacts and the 'programme' as we used to know it is dead and unlikely to return in the future except for 'specials'.
