  1. https://www.loverugbyleague.com/post/world-cup-organisers-remain-hopeful-tournament-will-go-ahead-despite-international-travel-concerns/?utm_content=buffer3521e&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer&fbclid=IwAR0sThM8QZt4oUK4EYyakzx6cduYpWrFARrCNWbxxCgzPX_AeUpyhIn5vL8 Organisers are still hopeful, though recognise there are issues to overcome
  2. We could offer to vaccinate all the players based in Australia or New Zealand - I'd schedule it for the morning they played England and give them the one that's most likely to knock them off colour
  3. Yes apologies my (extremely) bad maths, taking 7 from 17 and getting 8. Just to be clear, I'm not having a go at Hull, just pointing out that other teams have a significant proportion of players born in other countries
  4. Personally I have no issue with Toulouse putting out the best team they can, wherever they are from, but as a comparison I notice that only 8 of the Hull team that beat Wigan in the Challenge Cup final are English born.
  5. I saw both those games plus the 1982 and 1986 games where the teams were: 1982 1986 1. Greg Brentnall 1. Gary Belcher 2. Kerry Boustead 2. Dale Shearer 3. Mal Meninga 3. Chris Mortimer 4. Steve Ella 4. Mal Meninga 5. John Ribot 5. Michael O'Connor 6. Wally Lewis 6. Terry Lamb 7. Peter Sterling 7. Greg Al
  6. I believe you are correct, as I understand it, other common place or feature names such as beck, fell or thwaite also have Scandinavian origins.
  7. Quite a few of these are still in common use depending on where you go in West Cumbria https://www.lowneststudios.co.uk/cumbrian-dialect/
  8. Thanks for the info, I was given a bottle when I worked in Scotland a while ago and enjoyed it. I was going to take advantage of the offer, but won't bother now
  9. The Co-op is selling 70 cl bottles of Jura for £22, a bargain
  10. Don't forget that we've had to play Karl Pratt and Richard Horne on the wing too
  11. I understand what you mean and agree 100% . I think that can apply to a few other song writers/performers too
  12. When I saw this, I thought I can't remember Bryan Ferry doing a cover of that, so I dug out my Roxy Music Greatest Hits CD and recognised it within the first few bars. I think, because it is such a different version, and brilliant because of it, I hadn't made the connection to Dylan.
  13. Agree with you there, he's a real threat close to the line. Also, the World Cup will probably come a bit early for him, but the more I see of Harry Smith the more I like him
  14. Watching Peaky Blinders again on iPlayer I'd forgot how much I liked this
  15. Dave Woods on the BBC website says there is no news on the broadcast package of 10 Superleague games, so if its with the BBC he doesn't know about it https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/56915807
