  1. Perhaps they should try John Hopoate or Joel Tomkins... Useful if there was a hole in a dyke.
  2. They wouldn't be allowed to sponsor the Daily Mail. It would be like a Red Bull to a Rag.
  3. The grammar school I attended had lads from Warrington, Leigh, Swinton, Salford, Oldham and Rochdale. The only winter sport played was RU. Most of the kids wanted to play league, and one of the teachers (not a PE teacher) decided to start a league team. This was almost immediately vetoed by the head. In later life I learned from one of the teachers that the RU authorities had informed the head that if they had a league team at the school, no player would be considered for RU representative matches. I'm sure that this school would not be a unique case. The tragedy is that three of my contemporaries became full RU internationals, two of whom would have been natural league players given the chance
  4. In the l notes of my recently unearthed FC v KR Cornwall programme it says that then there were 41 amateur RL teams in the city of Hull, not including schools and colleges. That's an impressive number even if it includes different age groups of the same club. Despite this there were several players on both sides signed from (mainly local) RU. This stream of talent seems to have disappeared completely.
  5. Do you have to watch the game live, or can you also get it on catch up?
  6. They only released that statement after they read my original post.
  7. Any repercussions for Rhinos if Emerald withdraw sponsorship? Rhinos should not be tarred with the same brush as YCCC, but it will be difficult for them to sponsor one part of the complex but not the other.
  8. If ever I need my hose pipe mending I know who I'll use.
  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.
