  1. Wonder what would have happened had it been a lower league club?
  2. Just finished reading the above book and couldn't put it down. It tells the highs and lows of Danny Sculthorpes life playing Rugby League from his school days until his retirement. It then goes on to his struggle with life and how he came very close to suicide. He eventually got over this with the help of his family and went on to join State of Mind giving lectures on his struggles all over the country and how to get over them. Like I say a really fantastic read and well worth buying P.S. After all the clubs he played for, and that includes Wigan, Castleford etc guess with was his favourite, That's right HORNETS.
  3. Just how childish can you get
  4. Still at Spotland up to now
  5. I know some Welsh having lived in Swansea for 10 years but that was over 30 years ago. What does 'Yes Cymru' mean and why does it embarrass you please.
  6. Lets get as many Hornets fans over to Mayfield for their game on the 8th and visa versa for the Hornets game on the 9th.. A great weekend for the town of Rochdale

    Great to see in todays Daily Mirror, page 22, an article on Spelly. He says he hasn't missed a game home or away for over 40 years, and that includes friendlies. He started watching them when he was 12 and has watched every game since including away to Toulouse and Toronto I have met him on many occasion and what he doesn't know about R.L. isn't worth knowing. And I can tell you he is a true gentleman. A privilege to know you pal.
  8. Who did they play and how did they get on please
  9. Mick, don't you think the players , staff and other spectators are down in the dumps enough without you using that attitude.
  10. Remember there are no bad beers, some are just better than others.
  11. Old Frightful, you say there is no mention on BBC about the up and coming matches. The Beeb don't give a monkeys about Rugby League Watching Breakfast Television just now and on the sports part it mentions football, rugby union, tennis, horse racing etc and then at the end of it the presenter says 'oh yay and St Helens beat Wakefield in the cup'. Really pisses me off
  12. Must say I didn't think your team played as bad as the score line suggests. Put in a decent performance against a very good Sheffield team. However what you didn't need was the totally pathetic performance by the idiot in the middle. I have watched a lot of Rugby League and amateur rugby at Mayfield and must say I have never seen a worse performance in all my years of watching Rugby.
  13. You have to give Matt time and I'm sure he will do it. I remember years ago there was a certain Scotts man at Manure Shited who was on his last game to turn things around. He certainly did that and and in over 20 years. turned out to be probably one of the best in the game managing one of the best teams in the league
  14. 'If this game had been played when it should have you would have put them to the sword' Yea and if my auntie had balls she would have been my uncle
