  1. Hull KR for the simple reason @sidneythekidney on twitter, he kicked and screamed when saints put out a weak side against London last year. To me they had every right to do so and they showed they genuinely look after their own players welfare in a season thats far to long anyway. The guy needs to look at his own teams performance instead of other teams.
  2. My last season ticket at Saints was the the 2014. Despite winning the super league the standard of the comp had dropped dramatically. My interest started to lack maybe 2 season prior. Before that I had a season ticket most years along with a few quid being spent in the club shop. Now i pick and choose game and probably attend 5ish games a year. The signing of Barba and the excitement he brought tempted me more. Looking forward as long as loop fixtures carry on i wont be buying another ST but i will be attending some games including when the wolfpack come to town due to tbe SBW factor and also i have never seen the wolfpack live.
  3. Even if it is inconclusive its not worth the risk of 1 person again developing this or any other life limiting issues. The game has taken steps to look after players welfare with the head test, removing the shoulder charge and legs over the horizontal. But despite this the risks are still made higher by demanding the players play more matches. The "clubs need more fixtures for revenue" is simply not good enough for me and these lads are not paid enough to take the hammer that their bodies receive. The players need a positive post playing life, stories like Luke Robinson not remembering his kids birth is another example. Players welfare should be priority. The game and clubs are risking these lads welfare when it could be avoided.
  4. I have absolutely no issue with the lack of coverage from the BBC on SPOTY. They want to show what they think people want to see and its very obvious rugby league is low down on their list and thats a fair reflection of where the sport is in the UK. The sport is a minority one and its not up to the BBC to promote it. Its up to the RFL and SL to make people stand up and notice and as it stands they dont do that. Most casual sports fan in the UK could probably name a footballer, cricketer, F1 driver, tennis player, darts player, jockey, RU player, athletics stars..... But I also bet the same casual sports fan would struggle to name a UK based RL player. As i said its a fair and accurate reflection of where the sport is and just because its our choice of sport does not mean it automatically gets 5-10 mins of coverage. If it did a suspect most veiwers would go and put the kettle on like i use to at times when i use to watch it.
  5. Those man of the match performances for England and Lance to have one big similarity. Both were played in bad weather conditions what suited his game.
  6. The same as Scotland and Ireland.
  7. I had that first one on VHS, a nostalgia moment there.
  8. The sport is played every month apart from January, its hardly a long wait. If it was to start at the beginning of March then that would build some real anticipation and more time to focus on selling it.
  9. There seems to be more and more people on social media willing to question the RFL. Now a former MP and parliamentary rugby league leader seems to be wanting to possibly take action. Personally i would like to see this happen.
  10. Im glad its hidden away at 4am from the casual viewer, poor attendance and a terrible game.
  11. Reports of only 6k ticket sales. This wont look good on tv. Hopefully these reports are wrong.
  12. He never won a Grand Final. Anyway one players name we have all possibly mentioned but have no idea what he did after "its wide to WEST" Dwayne West
  13. I know the feeling, im a saints fan but a RL supporter first these days. I want saints to win next Saturday but i wont be disappointed if salford win and create a great RL story that could benefit the whole sport
  14. Well played Oldham they deserve promotion due to their on field performance. But i wont hide my disappointment. Newcastle offer so much more to the sport. A good stadium, vision, ambition and a clear plan, they are growing their supporter base and brand by the year and have a great junior development setup. Oldham on the other hand are one of many clubs that live month to month and offer very little.
  15. Because they understand the difference to big games and a standard fixture.
