  1. Lots of things look good on paper but the only thing that really is good is fish and chips. (Vossy)
  2. The Aussies changed to metric in 1970, yet the commentators still say things like "Dominic Young is six foot seven."
  3. I agree. Today's halfbacks are all at sixes and sevens.
  4. I saw him play v Swinton in their heyday. He was bald even then, and I thought he was an old man. I was soon disabused of that! Brilliant true centre.
  5. That happened in Salford too https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/manchester-ship-canal-tragedy-saw-20380096
  6. It would have been a penalty in NRL, six again doesn't apply till you're outside the 40. Time we adopted this.
  7. How about Real Rugby? We could become as popular as Real Tennis. Although it seems to have worked ok for Real Madrid.
  8. Due to the salary cap here they can only afford half a haircut.
  9. Really good interview https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2023/feb/27/st-helens-james-roby-england-rugby-league
  10. Noel "Crusher" Cleal - nickname given after he tackled a runaway pig.
  11. And I'm old enough to remember it being on telly. BBC 2 Late Night Lineup with Colin Welland.
  12. Or even Leigh. (Every thread seems to involve Leigh at some stage so it's my turn to start it, for the first and last time).
  13. Might happen one day. I was in Croatia last year and a major supermarket chain accepted crypto, along with quite a few bars I was in.
  14. Ditto for me but I used to think the same way, but at Christmas I got a bitcoin in my piece of Christmas pud.
  15. I'll have it for what you paid for it, less depreciation.
  16. It happened with increasing frequency towards the end of the NRL season, also from goal line dropouts. Some teams had quite a high success rate, probably why Leeds are trying it.
