  1. If he thinks that the NRL season is too long then he will be really shocked by a Super League season. It would be a great coup for Toronto and Super League if he comes but I just can't see it and if he does come it would only be because there was nothing viable for him in the NRL and would probably make that clear.
  2. 49ers win a wild one at New Orleans and it was a huge win as they are now back as top NFC seed before the Seattle game. After winning last week the Dolphins tanking goes back to normal after losing to the Jets.
  3. I was always playing Wembley Rugby League on the Amiga. There was an Australian version as well.
  4. Watching GB on the Kiwi line was like watching RU. All biff and barge and not even an attempt to try and do anything creative and once again they were much better when Clark had replaced Hodgson. You can't say that the errors were down to the Super League players wither as some of the biggest culprits were the NRL based players and Austin although being on the wing he wouldn't have been used to having high balls aimed at him. It will just be the same next week against PNG next week as well as Bennett is just so risk averse. One of the things that the NRL commentators said that they loved about the English players in Aus was that they weren't afraid of playing what they saw and Bennett isn't allowing them to do that. Bennetts tactics are outdated and we need a more positive coach who will encourage the players to play to their strengths.
  5. Hodgson needs to have it drilled out of him to not keep taking several steps before passing. Compare that with Clark making flat passes off the ground to the player hitting the advantage line and making more ground as a result. It won't make as much difference though because as Hodgson is the only English hooker to play in the NRL then under Bennett he will start no matter what.
  6. I remember seeing a clip when Boyzone were on the show when they were first starting out and he was not impressed.
  7. The injury to Gomes and some of the tackles I saw on EFL on Quest are why slide tackles will eventually be outlawed. The potential for injury when players are running at the speeds that they can reach nowadays is great. IMO a properly executed rugby tackle is safer.
  8. And then there was one. San Francisco are the only remaining undefeated team but next week are at home to the Seahawks which should be a good game.
  9. The Grand Final now seems to have a regular slot of the second week of October so this will probably mean that the season will start a week earlier than last year. The sooner the league is increased to get rid of the need of loop fixtures the better.
  10. Someone like Powell who can get the side to play with some flair and not be obsessed with achieving 100% completion rates.
  11. Two nuns are in a car and the one who is driving has to brake suddenly when a vampire jumps out in front of them. One says to the other "Quick! Show him your cross". The other one puts her head out of the window and shouts "GET OUT OF THE F****** WAY!"
  12. There is a rumour that Taskmaster is moving from Dave to Channel 4. So would possibly mean Jimmy Carr and Tom Allen will be on the next series as they seem to have to be on every programme that Channel 4 do. Carr has his moments but I just do not find Allen funny whatsoever.
  13. This is the first time that i have seen the nines version and I have been enjoying it so far. There is more space for players to show their flair and speed without it being all about just having the fastest players like in sevens. I'm not sure about changing magic to a nines competition but there should be one over here.
  14. Some nice tries from England in the first half. I was impressed with the womens team as well, they produced some good stuff.
