  1. Looks like he could play , this is in an era that was very different to when Robinson played
  2. Different era, never got to show what he could do in League , speak to Bath supporters and look at his highlights reel to get an idea of what he did. Union has gone away from skillful small players to the likes of burgess and Tuilangi crashing it up
  3. He did very well in Union and was not far off Robinson, Eastmond went to Union far later than Robinson when the players were far more athletic and fitter. In my opinion our game had very little to offer him , low wages, low profile etc etc. Saints fans may be mad but I feel it was madness of our game to provide only small opportunities for great athletes
  4. I personally believe he was one of the biggest talents we lost from our game , he has had a very good union career and he was never paid for by the RFU as far as i know
  5. Wish this was 6 years ago , i firmly believe GB or England could have built a team around this guy
  6. Ask the British public to name thd 2013 world cup squads , next to nobody in the Uk knows nothing about those England players; it might of been succesful to the RL public but thats as far as it went.
  7. I must admit to never been a fan of him as a player , i only thought he did the business behind a dominant pack ; i was deeply moved by his story and his life though. Maybe RL is not life or death after all
  8. I would rather travel to Toulouse than leigh and i suspect more peoples tv eyes would be drawn to watching Tolouse not to mention sponsors. Without wishing to sound rude about Leigh I dont really remember them offering anything to the top flight game in the 37 years ive been following the sport! Maybe we should be able to look up rather than down because as a sport we have been on the way down for a long time.
  9. Nothing of a decision, no vision for the game at all
  10. Although as a Leeds fan I despised Bradford it cant be denied we need those kind of numbers of spectators in the game. Thing is Bradford will need cash to create a strong team and brand again and even with the fat controllers pay off i doubt they have any! Catalans have been the only success for me as an expansion club and Tolouse could replicate that success and add a vital 2nd French team that could be pretty well supported in my opinion. But as always we dont seem to have much vision for the game
  11. Will do some drinking in the mid afternoon to get the juices flowing
  12. Im much of the same opinion as i have talked until im blue in the face about the game , what i do know is we need innovation progression and promotion of our sport because history clearly tells us know one else will help us. I m sure SOO wont ever leave Aus but im confident it would be a sucess if it did
  13. Cant really be bothered with you , try work it out yourself
  14. Im sugesting the idea of 5 games so dont get too carried away with yourself
  15. I agree origin works as a 3 game series but what about doing something different say every 3 years ? A 5 game series would raise the profile of the game in established markets and help in emerging markets
  16. I bet you a fiver it would get a bigger crowd than the challenge cup final
  17. Well most RL fans I imagine would want to see the spectacle and im sure the expats of Aus and NZ too
  18. NO Its exactly because its not broken that i suggested the idea, its the only thing we have that works
