  1. I saw a French TV news clip at the time showing a large number of coaches leaving Perpignan for the final so 10,000 sounds about right.
  2. I used to like the fact that you could play the ball to yourself. Saw it in action during the BBC's Challenge Cup final programme at the weekend. Had forgotten about it.
  3. Not the same, I'm afraid. Of course those matches hold an appeal for me but a Yorkshire versus Lancashire does not engage me in the same way as it would a native of those counties.
  4. No and no, for me. Exiles was a good concept in principle, à la the Barbarians in RU but was not given enough time to embed as an annual event. The branding was also amateurish and quite cheesy, in my opinion. The Lancashire versus Yorkshire game hold no appeal for me as I am Cumbrian. If we are ever to rid the game of the northern stereotype then this is something to avoid. If anything, more international games.
  5. Agree wholeheartedly. Nothing more frustrating for me than quick taps being denied. Interestingly, they are often allowed in the amateur game in our league up in Cumbria.
  6. Taking a penalty goal is sometimes essential. As previous posters have stated, when in a tight game against tough opposition, taking any points on offer is key. I personally enjoy tight games where there are only a couple of points in it.
  7. That last TO try was a beauty. Which ground was this played at?
  8. Stop with this. He plays for Scotland and that's that. All this county swapping needs to stop if RL is to be a serious international sport.
  9. Great post, Yosser. Pity Sam couldn't have said, look I am here to talk about the England game not RU. I seem to think the much maligned Mr McNamara did this in one interview last year when asked about RU.
  10. Saw a tweet yesterday that said ex-XV international, Mirco Bergamasco was going to be playing for Italy. Sure it was on the Italia RL Twitter account.
  11. Really? I find the prospect of Brexit a tenuous reason for low attendances in the Championship.
