  1. Indeed, as long as I've followed this game I've been impressed by the bravery the players at every level of the game show, but there wasn't a player on the field that day that could hold a candle to Lizzie Jones.
  2. Just saw this online Lizzie Jones has been awarded an MBE in the New Years honours list. Well deserved https://www.rugby-league.com/article/56140/lizzie-jones-awarded-mbe-in-new-years-honours-list?fbclid=IwAR314MFfpiy5HI69FJ53CsmcMxxzoZeUHkzZYMjv3r3jSwoQEvqJSfwBjLg
  3. I've recommended this programme several friends now, general sports fans as well as rugby league fans, and every single one of them has loved it. As an aside, my niece, who plays for Barrow ladies, said that when they played Warrington that the Warrington PDRL team had played Wakefield before their game and Adam Hills had stopped to watch. She said he spoke to everyone of them and shook their hands. Seems like a top bloke as well as a great Rugby League fan
  4. Just been on the Virgin Money page to donate, the target is now £200,000 with £163,863.25 raised by direct donations and £196,436.89 including gift aid. A tremendous effort by great supporters of the greatest game and a real testament to Rob's standing within it
  5. Terrible news for Rob and his family. Rob is one of, if not the toughest player I've had the pleasure to watch. To have the mental as well as physical ability and courage to take on, and be better than much bigger opponents are attributes he has in abundance, I hope they assist his battles ahead. I really do wish him all the best.
  6. Just watched it on All4 catch up. What a great programme, real credit to Adam Hills, even though he fronted the programme he didn't hog it, it was about each and every one of them.
  7. That thought did occur to me. While they refer to it as Physical Disability Rugby League, that's the only time the 'L' word is mentioned in the Critics Choice column, though it is mentioned in the listing so I was giving them the benefit of the doubt
  8. Just to give a shout out for the Adam Hills documentary about Physical Ability Rugby League (PDRL) on Channel 4 Friday 13th December at 11:30 pm Should be a great programme and it has even been listed as Critics Choice in the Sunday Times Culture magazine.
  9. Went to see him in Whitehaven on Friday night and he was tremendous, very open and honest about his time in the game and told some great stories.
  10. On the basis of those performances I think I'd be tempted to give Austin a run at 6 next week, at least he can beat a first man.
  11. Dave Woods said maybe we should start every game with 20 minutes to go. No we should start every game with Clarke not Hodgeson
  12. Good luck with the plans, I hope they are successful
  13. Already been on the phone to a London mate about the game at Tottenham and he's asked me to hold off getting the tickets right away as he reckons there'll be a fair bit of interest from his mates down there
  14. Assuming the Aussies are still coming next year it would make sense to bring Tonga in 2022. Unlike 2013, we need to have some home internationals the year after the World Cup to build some momentum, and who better than Tonga if the can maintain their current success. Its been said before but we really do need to get to a stage where not only are internationals known a couple of years in advance, but the venues a nailed down an the tickets are on sale at least 12 months in advance
  15. Just to add to that, this may just see many more players with Pacific island heritage opt for their ancestral countries as a first option for many years to come thus creating that upward spiral. Taumalola and Fifita should be awarded whatever the Tongan version of a knighthood is for services to International Rugby League
