  1. I agree, Aussie pies are superb but they won't put them on a barm for you. That's why he's coming back.
  2. I worry for his mental health. Stair lifts can drive you up the wall.
  3. One of my favourite memories is of giant "hard man" Paul Ringer picking a fight with Steve Nash, half his size, at Cardiff, and being lifted off the ground by an uppercut to the jaw.
  4. John Stopford. Rated by van Vollenhoven as his finest opponent.
  5. Of course Batley should be admitted to SL if they qualify. We need to have a level playing field .......oops!
  6. The worst punishment for a Wigan player is Sine Pie.
  7. Salford the only club named after a major pollutant. (Salford dioxide).
  8. Not so sure, I've heard recently that quite a few now get out of the bath if they need a p.
  9. As a kid, if someone had told me that in your lifetime it will be cheaper to fly to Spain than watch division 2 rugby league match I think I would have run away from them.
  10. I had a plan to take my camping gear to Canada, rent a car and tour Ontario for a few weeks, travelling into Toronto whenever there was a match. Ah, well...maybe one day.
  11. Rarely any RL and never seen any French report before, but this was on the "front page" along with the season postponement news. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/no-helmets-required/2021/jan/20/rugby-league-french-league-streaming-super-league-nrl
  12. I think full time professionalism has had an effect here. Back in part time days there were many players, including some of the top ones, who had jobs that needed high qualifications. I think Saints had a player who was an actuary When I played one of our players had several pro offers but signed for Workington because, as a graduate engineer, he had a good job offer from Windscale. I don't think he would have entertained the idea of being full time.
