  1. I was there. Drove up from Redditch, that hotbed of Rugby League in the Midlands and could not believe the atmosphere and crowd size, (and I used to go on the Kop at Anfield a few years earlier in student days.) Something about that game really captured the imagination, lots of great memories before then with the Dons and Trinity, and since then with Catalans and Cov Bears, but that game is in a league of it's own. Thanks GJ for reminding me of such awe and wonder, but not for reminding me it was 37 years ago!!
  2. Doncaster has been mentioned earlier on, but they actually started life at Doncaster's York Road greyhound stadium in 1953 (before I was born!) And on a vaguely related note, spectators at Coventry Bears Butts Park home were intrigued a couple of summers ago in the drought by some outlines of curves in the corners of the field. Former speedway? Dogs? No, it was the outline of a long gone velodrome.
  3. Socially distanced scrums??? Easy. Just build a bigger version of the fabulous 'scrummer' from Subbuteo Table Rugby.......
  4. Mansfield's 'Marksmen' wasn't just an exercise in alliteration, but a naming deal with Mansfield Brewery, makers of a lager called Marksman, ( in turn i think some kind of Robin Hood archery reference). The fear some have around 'branded' sports teams is their portability and ability to move to a new city with a bigger market, as in NFL.
  5. Doncaster RLFC will always be the Dons, a title they share with MKDons and AberdeenFC. On one of the occasions they went bust, 'rag' was inserted to differentiate as they became Dragons but worse was to come when they became Doncaster Lakers after the nearby Lakeside shopping outlet. Not only is the name artificial but so too is the lake.
  6. The Sam Janus film was the adaptation of the famous stage play 'up'n'under', originally by the Hull Truck Theatre Company, about a group of deadbeats and misfits being made into a rugby league team. Classic underdog story. Mainly remembered for Ms Janus's shower scene.
  7. Gritty realistic b/w social drama from 1963 set in the world of Rugby League, when the world was what existed within a 10 mile radius of Wakefield, and the M62 was just a pencil sketch on a set of Ordnance Survey maps. It's on tonight on Talking Pictures (channel 445 on Virgin and I guess on other platforms) at 21.15 tonight.

  9. After David Attenborough's documentary last night, it has to be Antarctica. There's a whole continent untapped. Those harsh conditions are just like the North of England, although I would guess more prone to frozen pitches. So a UK base would also be needed and I suggest Leigh as it has a guided busway running to it.
