  1. I totally agree. Holbrook got the best out of the players at his disposal. Is it a cultural change, tactical coaching change or a character/personality shift......or a combination of all three? Only those on the inside will know.
  2. Yes. The breakaway allowed the sport to evolve in a direction desired by players and fans alike. If there hadn't been a split and still only one form of rugby I suspect it would be the 13 man League format. Union wants to evolve but can't - it's already been done!
  3. I have no axe to grind with Pricey, he has been a successful coach during his time at Wire, yet it is the lack of a grand final victory which defines the terms in which he is judged. This and the seemingly clueless attacking strategies displayed by a team absolutely bursting with attacking talent! This raises the question of whether a coach tries to redevelop a team to play the way he believes will win games, or, coaches a team in a way that recognises and exploits their talents in the best manner? I sometimes wonder if Price falls somewhere in between. Anyway, I wish him good fortune ove
  4. A talented player when things are going well. Though not the type of character I'd want alongside me in the trenches when the hard work needs doing. I hope he finds his 'forever home' soon.
  5. Negative Ghost Rider. It's like Narnia in my back garden here in l'haute vallee.
  6. This snow down here will make life interesting!!
  7. Maybe a few extra 'vital' participants were in attendance then
  8. I drove past the Grizzlies ground yesterday on my way up to Toulouse and was surprised to see spectators in attendance! And was gutted that I wasn't amongst them.
  9. Totally aware of that buddy and it's something that the town is, rightfully, very proud of. But this is not a reason to forego the playing of another sport. After all, they have a footy team. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bitter about it, I love where I live, just curious.
  10. This is a great time of year to take to the mountains, the colours of the trees are absolutely breathtaking. Wild boar are getting busy at the moment mind you.
  11. I've always wondered why my town of Quillan, between Limoux and Perpignan, hasn't embraced the evolved code. When I mentioned that I preferred Rugby a Treize to our mayor the look on his face was reminiscent of a bulldog sucking a lemon!
  12. Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere but I just wondered if people who play, played, watch, know and love the sport of Rugby League agree with Jason's train of thought? https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/sport/2020/oct/10/black-people-are-hurting-british-rugby-league-inclusivity-crisis
  13. Great choice. He'll do a sterling job for us because he loves the game.
  14. Summer rugby isn't kind to them. They need to bathe in Fearnaught Factor 500 before taking to the pitch. It's a double edged sword, it makes catching the ball a little tricky but would-be tackles just slide off. Without FF500 they would be left for dust. (I myself am a bloodnut)
  15. Fantastic effort from Cas. Not sure if Saints just aren't clicking or the effort and attitude from Cas is preventing them from doing so.
