  1. That's probably why it died until you decided to post your opinion 5 days later.
  2. I recommend you not watch the following video if you do not wish to hear Burgess with his half aussie accent:
  3. We used to get 10k attendances. Not at Ealing we wouldn't in future though. There is plenty of interest for a successful London RL team. Just need to finally get that "successful" part right.
  4. How about between Catalans and Warrington fans? ?
  5. You can follow a twitter account from anywhere - it's no real indication of home attendances. Besides they seemed to be there last season ?
  6. What are you trying to say about our current day trophies?! Oh.
  7. Reading his quote and seeing the "World Cup and have done it with all purely English-born players." - I feel like it doesn't read particularly well - But he was clearly talking in the context of England and Australia - Our game isn't on an international level to start talking about players that have grown up in England, but were born or spent a couple of years in another country in Europe. I feel like he was clearly referring about those "Australians with English Heritage" playing for England, nothing else.
  8. I believe some of the Wheelchair WC is being played in London, and I think I am more excited to see that then the Semi in London
  9. Isn't it? Two clubs offered him contracts and he chose one over the other? If Wakefield had not offered him anything then it would not have been a "race"
  10. I think it was Jamie Langley that recently said in an interview when asked about Davies, that when he was coming through, it was always thought if his mind was in the body of a bigger player he would be playing for England in his early 20s. Shame, as he puts in 100% whenever he steps on the field, and has some skills with the ball too.
  11. Wakefield - it says it in what you quoted.
  12. Nothing happened to it.. I even referred to thinking he isn't as "elusive" as Papenhuyzen is, in my post.
  13. RL in this country only gets headlines if some fans acting like $%£^ or if England are doing well. That's how you get more people interested in SL, convert them from the international games to domestic IMO
  14. You just gotta get through that first 50 minutes without conceding too much then ?
  15. I think I fear that he isn't as quick and elusive as Papenhuyzen, who isn't very big but is very good - but more in the vein of the Penrith or St George fullbacks at the weekend, who were ineffective as they got dominated in the tackle easily and lose yards on contact. A centre needs to make more impact running the ball back nowadays, especially early in the set
  16. If the England national team is better for having the players ply their trade in the NRL and we're regularly beating the Aussies then it'll get more eyes on our sport, and hopefully get more spectators and kids playing it. If the national team is doing great then clubs can capitalise on that.
  17. I was more so comparing him with White Australians rather than the pacific islander players where genetics are moreso a factor. The young Aussie backs tend to have more bulk to them compared to ours.
  18. Gildarts gotta put at least 14 kgs on then ?
  19. I think he will need to build up his size if he wants to compete day in, day out in the NRL. When you see the NRL backs they're all massive in comparison to Gildart and a lot of other English backs. I do wonder if this is because of superior gym facilities at lower age ranks perhaps, or if it's because the NRL just have a bigger talent pool so more big guys.
  20. I don't think it's his fitness that you should questioning ?
  21. I don't think he'll be back for what would be his 3rd or 4th time with us. They never ended well previously ?
  22. Broncos just uploaded their 1999 Semi Final against Castleford to YouTube:
  23. Well that would be a decision for the RFL - If the idea is that they are now off-season and will go through a new pre-season before the start of the next one, or if they want players to keep fit so they can come back for training for 2-3 weeks and then back to playing games.
  24. Just like most in any employment, if you need training to be able to complete your job role, then it will be covered in payment. They're full time athletes, they're paid to play the game of Rugby League, and to do everything that comes with that - whether that is media duties, attending training sessions, community work, etc. They have to maintain a level of fitness for their job, even if they aren't working right now. So they should be training
