  1. Probably does the graveyard shift......
  2. You might get better response using local terminology. Midday is dinner time, early evening is tea time and late night is supper.
  3. The players are consumers. They will only take so much real terms pay cuts before they look for another career path. They owe that to their families.
  4. It's a huge cut in real terms. £24m in 2020 is the equivalent of £28.3m now. https://iamkate.com/data/uk-inflation/
  5. £7.99 in Home Bargains (Or £17 from Ocado)
  6. My lasting memory is the urinal under the main stand, which consisted of a continuous wooden trough going right around the room and emptying into a grid in the corner. At half time the flow to the grid rivalled Niagara. And the atmosphere was unforgettable.
  7. According to some reports there was a complication, he had another heart attack when he got the bill.
  8. It's been around for years. I used to go to the Leeds 9s while they lasted and I thought it was a good day out. It was hardly publicised at all and got a crowd of 3 to 4 thousand. I think the last one was around 2010 or 11. It was the first time I saw a Jamaica team play (and they did well), and once they had a friendly between a local schools team and a public schools side.
  9. Do any of these leagues post fixture lists, results and league tables?
  10. Could be sponsored by Sure deodorant.
  11. Be very discreet if you're gay or transgender https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-65745850
  12. Lots of things look good on paper but the only thing that really is good is fish and chips. (Vossy)
  13. The Aussies changed to metric in 1970, yet the commentators still say things like "Dominic Young is six foot seven."
  14. I agree. Today's halfbacks are all at sixes and sevens.
  15. 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.
  16. That happened in Salford too https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/manchester-ship-canal-tragedy-saw-20380096
  17. It would have been a penalty in NRL, six again doesn't apply till you're outside the 40. Time we adopted this.
  18. How about Real Rugby? We could become as popular as Real Tennis. Although it seems to have worked ok for Real Madrid.
  19. Due to the salary cap here they can only afford half a haircut.
