  1. This was touched on the Sheffield Eagles thread below The majority of people on here probable know Martin, as he gets to all Eagles games, many others from Finals to championship 1 and is well known throughout the amateur game. More importantly he appears to be liked by all. I have spoken twice, since my post on the other thread to Martin. He suffered a fall and has damage to his hip He advises he is likely to be in hospital for at least four weeks. He is however doing well and is being cared for excellently by the NHS. As those who know him would expect, he has set himself a target of getting out as soon as possible, but certainly in time for any Eagles games if the season is being continued He has access to SKY Mix only which is a shame as he normally watches most of the Aussie games He does or did have an account on here but cannot access, but he would welcome messages to his facebook account I will forward any comments on here Mike S
  2. I have been speaking to Martin by phone almost weekly Next time I speak I will check he has seen the club message although it is almost certain he has and ask if he wants to update or if I can send a message on his behalf He does have an account on here but has not posted for sometime
  3. SA 16 BDH 20 2005 Cov 24 SA 36 2005 Bramley appears to have been 23 July source St Albans v Sheffield Hawks prog 2005 SA 6 LS 26 SA 4 Hemel 2 source prog v CC 26/2/2006 which was played as a one off at St Albans RU. Source prog for that game. I have the teams listed in the prog but not the actual teams
  4. I have actually recounted and got to 40 Carlisle, Newcastle, Blackpool. Preston, Blackburn, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham, Wigan, Liverpool, Man C, Man U, Bradford, Leeds, Hull, Huddersfield, Doncaster, Sheffield United, Sheffield W, Barnsley, Notts F, Mansfield, Coventry, Newport, Bristol,R, Reading,Watford, Southend, Brentford, QPR, Orient, Fulham, Chelsea, Wimbledon, Crawley, Charlton, Millwall, Charlton, Gillingham, I think Northampton has staged an on the road game as well as possibly NCL.West Han could also be argued Arsenal, Tottenham and Middlesbrough are planned In addition Swansea, Cardiff, and Rotherham have used old grounds nit sure if Everton used in past. Even if not thats 48
  5. Managed to name all the English ones apart from Twickenham where I named the main ground Been to 50 for RL, not all super league and including for football all the English ones. Seen London on many grounds including Gillingham, Orient, Esher, Millwall, Leicester, Wycombe and Aberavon but missed many mostly in pre SL days including Chelsea, Hendon, Wealdstone, Crawley and Kingstonian Incidentally, just thinking about it for 10 mins, I came up with 36 of the present 92 having staged RL and had been on 20. All those I though of are post 1980 Anyone want to have a go. I also had one possible but included one that could be argued.

  7. Think they played a Regal Trophy tie at Wasps in Sunbury One of the others may be in Saint Albans
  8. I could do with some guidance on this wife and children were due to fly to Philippines last night Emirates only offering rebooking but we would have to pay any increased cost. The youngest is nearly two so very low fare paid but they would want full fare if we rebook for after his birthday additional cost likely to exceed £1000 and not willing to pay that amount, when no guarantee won’t happed to new flights and my ongoing financial circumstances are like every ones else’s uncertain looked at the legislation and seems does not apply in exceptional circumstances
  9. Hi I have programmes for all these what are you looking for as can help with ground addresses etc and possibly dates for the seasons they were members but nothing on players Celtic Rooster will have much much more if he looks in
  10. Picture of Sherwood wolf hunt prog on their Facebook page so clearly will be one easiest of the matches tomorrow for me so heading there. Been before and decent facilities off field and for anyone interested almost next door to the Worksop direction platform at MW station
  11. Not sure why I posted where the clubs play Apart from the armed forces all six teams south of Nottingham drawn away A one in 64 chance in normal circumstances At least BARLA said in advance one year southern teams would have to travel
  12. Thanks for the info, didn’t realise Rhondda had moved Twitter shows this to be Glyncoch. This has been used before by RL. I think it was Valley Cougars and was a one off but managed to find out about the game attend Will probably go back if Rhondda are drawn at home in reply to other poster, RAF have used Cranwell in Lincolnshire recently but other venues in the past so not guaranteed. They don’t use the stadium pitch Navy are at Portsmouth, decent ground with stand. It is technically on military land with a gatehouse but no problems with access
  13. The usual venues for the southern sides are Bedford Tigers play in Biddenham about three miles from the town centre, they have been in existence at least 15 years and superseded other teams from the town. Modem facility off field but nothing pitch side for spectators Hammersmith Hill Hoists and West Tigers. The first are an almost all Aussie team and the second have I believe a strong kiwi connection. Both have used Chiswick RU and Wasps training ground in Acton / Ealing. A match at Skolars more likely if drawn at home London Chargers. League matches tend to be at Old Blues which is near Raynes Park, Wimbledon. Cup matches recently have also been at Skolars. Rhonnda use Pontypridd RU so if at home, will be the most impressive of the venues. Ground used occasionally for Wales RL fixtures and has capacity of over 10k Sherwood Wolf Hunt are based next to Mansfield Woodhouse station. Reasonable facilities as ground is a former miner welfare sports facilities Torfaen Tigers are fairly nomadic but last year we’re at New Panteg RU which is walkable from Pontypool Station. Only a railed off pitch Lomghorns are the Irish representative. They play at Ashbourne RU just outside the built up area of Dublin. Decent facility with cover of on main pitch I think only Jarrow and Edinburgh in draw which would be a new ground for me and both a bit far for me in January, unless chargers play at Old Blues
  14. Watched the final at North Shields today Super game that needed golden point to split the teams with Edinburgh winning 38 34 As others have said good things going on the North East, with a girls cup final on first and the day hosted by Whitley Bay RL and excellently organised, although I may have bought too many of their home made cakes. There was also a game between a North East select and Bolton Mets which was also close With Newcastle RL taking an active interest in events, this is undoubtedly the area showing the bast potential including youth development at the moment The fixture did not show in RL express. I accept deadlines are tight and no doubt no release from RL Is the maim factor
  15. I was told there was 300 at Keighley Albion for their ladies cup tie Although not as good as the Cas attendance it is another impressive figure Maybe the ladies game at Wembley next year and put it on first
