  1. It seemed odd to play him at loose forward when that move was hardly a conspicuous success for the lions
  2. Glad to see Warriors actually putting in a worthwhile performance. First 40 sets completed is pretty incredible. The Dragons, however, look like they could play until the next pandemic and still not score
  3. Last ever Hawaii Five-0 tonight. Didn't realise until it was announced at the beginning. I know it's not great art, but I will miss it. It has been a reliable companion for ten years on Sunday nights.
  4. The Club is brilliant if a little a dated. One of the wave of fantastic Australian films at the end of the 70s and 80s and directed by Bruce Beresford, who also made Breaker Morant and Driving Miss Daisy. Could be about rugby league as the main characters are incompetent administrators engaging in internecine warfare behind the scenes at Collingwood. Extra Time, another Australian Rules comedy lurking on Sky at the moment is also good fun
  5. It has become a running joke for me and my Mum that Portillo never gets off any train with any luggage. Having said that I didn't think his programme about empire last night was too bad. He certainly didn''t make any effort to pretend England's involvement in India was benign.
  6. Watched an Australian comedy on Sky last night called Extra Time. It was filmed in Wagga Wagga, but the sport involved was Aussie Rules rather than rugby league. Despite that and a rather obvious ending, it was charming and funny (although some of the ocker accents were pretty hard to follow at times)
  7. While never a super league player, Michael Knowles has improved every team he has played for at Championship level
  8. No that would only be if I had said I had sent the other 9 correct answers in by post
  9. 3 isn't Zulu surely but rather The Man who would be King
  10. Really enjoyed Stumptown tonight. Strong start with a great central character. Hope it continues in the same fashion.
  11. Someone would catch a really bad cold in that case given that they are playing in a stadium that has just been built for them.
  12. I decided to follow a minor league team this year and chose the Rocket City Trash Pandas. No idea if they will actually get to play.
  13. Got to love self published books. Reading one at the moment set in 1952 where the hero has arrived directly from being a British military policeman in the League of Nations mandate of Palestine, despite the former having been sound up six years previously and Israel having been independent for four years by then. He meets someone on arrival who is said to come from Bangladesh even though that country would not come into existence for another 17 years. Later the hero who is the narrator proves his point by saying his knowledge of the first world war was hazy but everyone knew the story of how the Japanese conquered Singapore. The author also writes that a substantial part of the population in Singapore in 1952 were Japanese (despite in reality all Japanese being banned from the colony from 1945 to 1953). I only need to read now that Singapore was founded by space aliens to realise the author has got all his facts from the History Channel
  14. Interesting to see whether a human rights abusing murderer will pass the Premier League's fit and proper person test
