    Can't see that happening they seem to have lots of money them and what I can see a great ground.

    FEV friendly

    Very hard to watch but has said, Fev are full time pros and they looked as though they had all been playing together. They also looked leaner, more athletic and faster than us especially in defence. Oldham, looked as though they had just met in the pub - all strangers to each other, didn't look fit and their defence was all over the place with holes, as the commentator said "You could have sailed a submarine through it!" To their defence, it was the first time they have played together, they never gave up and showed some glimpses of good attacking rugby. It would be interesting to se
  3. It's interesting to note all the hoops that Leigh had to jump through before being allowed into sooperdooperleeg whilst the crazy idea of Canadian teams, and possibly American teams can get in via the back door.
  4. His surname was "hell!"
  5. Another after dinner story. The RL wanted Billy to use the yellow card, it hadn't been used yet in the RL. The game was London against Wigan. Billy being Billy refed the game the way he saw it and waved on some tasty exchanges. At half time members from the RL went into his changing room telling him if he didn't use the yellow card in the second half he wouldn't be refereeing the cup final. He said nothing just steamed inside. The second half just as the first no real issues, just men playing rugby - then the London winger stiff armed his opposite number. Billy thought "I'll use
  6. Have I missed something? What's wrong with Wilkinson?
  7. Does anyone know anything about the newest signing?
  8. I remember Billy Thompson refereeing at a wet, cold Saddleworth game. Watching the game with Jimmy Reeves he was shouting advice to BT. I warned him to quieten it down a bit because it was BT. He said" I'll shout as loud as I want" - and he did and got even louder. BT eventually got fed up, stopped the game and came over to Jimmy saying "If you don't shut up I'll throw you into the canal!". We all shut up.
  9. I feel that Rugby Union only survives due to the regular revenue it takes from its internationals. According to one top club coach he reputedly said "Take away the money we get from internationals and we would have to go back to being semi-professional" We need regular internationals, as Sir Kev has said, for our great game to survive.
  10. We need someone who will shout about our great game not one whom hides away in America. I'd get rid!
  11. I feel our great sport will have to split - if it hasn't already. Super League is now a separate entity and doesn't want to share anything with the rest of the sport. I suggest let SL do what it will and the Championship and First division go its own way and importantly having the interest of ALL of the sport. Call it The Second Great Schism!
  12. Hope all Roughyeds and other Rugby League followers have a great Christmas and a better 2021 - but not as good as the Yeds!!
  13. I'm so glad I know you otherwise we wouldn't get to know anything. Thanks!!! Ever thought about joining the secret service?
  14. I know someone on this page who will need a XXXX if last year is anything to go by!
  15. It's all gone very quiet on the recruitment front. Do we take it what we now have is what we will be putting our hopes on next season? Or does someone (CCR) know something that we are not privy to?
