  1. There is the BBC 5 live podcast, here is this week's: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0d4vvzx
  2. I may have got this wrong, but read somewhere that the last time a Russian national team played in any sport was against Ukraine, in Rugby League - and Ukraine won. Ukraine RL Twitter account if anyone wants to give them a follow: https://mobile.twitter.com/Ukraine_Rugby13
  3. He did, I was there to see it. Unfortunately he then got very drunk on a plane, fell out with the coach and flew home mid tour. Great rugby player, but not been able to hold on to a single coaching job long term since he retired - in either League or rah rah. I can't see this working out well at all for Fev but suspect it's going to be an entertaining show for us neutrals.
  4. Was a thriller, really enjoyed it, well worth a watch.
  5. The IRL are trying go spread it around, which is a good thing. Their 2029 preference is USA, but if not I suspect Australia or NZ will get the nod, so the UK for the 2033 tournament.
  6. I have got tickets to see every men's and every women's team apart from Aus & NZ men, whom I expect to see in the Semi's and also have tickets for these. The next WC in the UK probably won't be for another 11 years so am not missing the opportunity to see all these teams.
  7. Getting a new stand apparently. If true, suspect this means they will be in IMGs brave new RL world. https://twitter.com/catalanmedia/status/1574459350952939524?s=20&t=p-_8eYnQlTAxAWhdB0B96Q
  8. I assume there are a number of points to be presented so it may not be a single vote. Possibly also not final ones, there could be initial proposals to be taken forward into an open public consultation phase.
  9. There is zero interest from clubs, players or administrators (NRL, SL and IRL) to hold the WCC at the end of the seasons for a long list of very good reasons. International RL is far more important to developing the sport and that is rightly taking priority. I've been to about 10 WCC games over the years' in England and Australia and love the concept, but there are far more strategically important autumn playing priorities so it should stay where it is.
  10. I imagine it was in the years after 1918. The war and then suffrage changed a lot of perceptions about what women should and should not do socially.
  11. https://www.townrlfc.com/article/727/workington-town-appoint-anthony-murray-as-head-coach
  12. Seven League won the tender to find opportunities, nothing further was announced so presumably they didn't. https://rlwc2021.com/article/173/seven-league-win-rlwc2021-gaming-and-esports-tender- Seven League are owned by IMG, there is probably a good conspiracy story in there somewhere.
  13. I think the 2nd Knights game is the same weekend as the Fiji game so can only count as a single match against his ban. Clubs use friendlies and reserve games against bans so nothing new or unusual.
  14. Yes they can be interchanged, but only if you are a Tier 1 country begining and ending with the letter A.
