  1. I have to agree, reminded me of pubs in the sixties/seventies when most had a Tommy and an Eddie and occasionally you could spot a pair of coppers in the back tapping drinks from the Landlord. If it tours again please give it a big shout on here. One for against the wall...…..posters who go off topic...……. I fall on my sword.
  2. 1978. 5th November. GB v Australia at Odsal . Included a tough as teak front row of Mills, Fisher and Lockwood and the best British standoff I have ever seen in Roger Millward. And of course a GB win. Fairbairn; Wright, Joyner, Dyl, Atkinson; Millward (captain), Nash; Mills, Fisher, Lockwood, Nicholls, Lowe, Norton. Subs. Holmes, Rose.
  3. Returning empty bottles to the shop/off licence/pub/club for refunds, give them to the council now for free.
  4. He had the ball grounded before the line with his arm also in contact, at that point it is tackle complete, he can’t lift it and plant the ball again no matter how much momentum there is. The decision is made though and that is that.
  5. I am still struggling with the first try decision, previous on field rulings have always been if the ball carrying arm touches the floor it is tackle complete, if a player fields a ball and goes to the floor and an opposition arm touches him it is tackle complete. Here the ball carrying arm touched the floor and then was lifted and the ball placed further forward. commentary fwiw were happy with it, and so were Hicks, VR and Cummins.
  6. An addition to fake injuries may have to be claims of an injury from biting. I thought after the failed attempt in the World Cup on Mcgillvary that it would die a death but we may have seen a return in Fridays Sky game. The replay appeared not to support the accusation, it will be interesting to see the result of the hearing.
  7. As a teen it was the car I admired most, never had enough brass for one and going by the modern price can’t see it happening now. Got a couple of rides in a mates dad’s Mexico and it was the real deal, a great car, you have been privileged.
  8. Not heard a cuckoo in my area for the last 3 years after never missing for as long as I can remember, are there other areas missing them.
  9. I like your proactive positive attitude, although the big one is yet to come out of this group, bottom place gets the beers in.
  10. It was Winner and Top goal scorer. This was on William Hill 10 minutes before I posted it, if I put the 2 together it was not accepted, this was a little disappointing until I spotted it further down the page as a double. Now at 20/1.
  11. Brazil/Neymar double 25/1 Brazil will be looking to make good their last appearance.
  12. Which ferry companies sail from Hull to France, I like the idea of sailing from there instead of driving to the South first.
  13. Just watching now on ITV4, I have never been much of a motorcycle racing fan but watching this is breath taking, firstly the camera work is almost perfection and secondly the riders must have no nerves at all reaching 180 mph on local roads with very few straights or flat road. Is the TT unique in the world in that it takes place on public roads.
  14. Thanks for that. I've watched the hull semi-final in Leeds and look forward to the rest.
  15. Naga Munchetty The lanky one who sits with her. Jeremy Vine (ruined Eggheads for me) The rugby league commentary of Johnathon Davies Zoe Ball Andrew Marr and a lot of the previously mentioned.
  16. Liam Watts may want to use this as defence at his lynching, perhaps toning down the amusing sarcasm a tad though.
  17. I am not aware of any reason for the loss of recorded miles other than a new display And then it would start at zero. A new engine is certainly not a reason. My wife was in a similar position to you and after viewing multiple heaps of rattling, stinking forecourt top priced cars we bought her lease car from the lease company.
  18. Not sure if it would be classed as uncool but a favourite of mine discovered on a work visit to Newcastle 45 years ago was Pease Pudding then served on a hot sausage sandwich, now I can still buy from Lidl in Yorkshire and it adds nicely to a ham sandwich for me.
  19. Vince was an outstanding prop, powerful drives in and as OF says knew just when to release the ball. One of my greats of the game, a sad loss.
  20. I can't help with your requests Jeff, I can second the quality of York Brewery beers though. Yorkshire Terrier being my favourite. I have recently found bottled versions in Morrisons and is a good substitute for the draught version.
  21. It's getting worse, freezing all the time and messages about long running script, adobe pdf missing. It's only this site out of many I use. I love the site but it is getting too much, are there any remedies available?
  22. Yes, I have the same, making it hard work and patience.
