  1. The WC must go on because if it does and does so because the ANZACs default then any supposed ANZAC series would not be sanctioned by the International Board and they would be illegal.
  2. Why if no TV commitments are games starting at 19.45? Is this not a bit late. I see the Catalan game starts at 17.00 Generally though, are people still reluctant to move around. I'm guessing that Wigans season ticket numbers are somewhat higher than 5500, but stand to be corrected.
  3. One day its Friday another its Thursday another its Sunday. It's a bigger gate than St Helens tonight!
  4. Yes listening on Warriors radio. Wigan losing concentration in last quarter. 2 pens helping Wakey get 2 tries. PS ... before that Bibby came close to his 4th...!
  5. Friday night and no RL on SKY. Remind me, were were supposed to be running our nuts off to fulfil these obligations to ensure games for SKY. I see there is Live The Hundred on 3 channels.
  6. Its worth noting that players who become "names" can enjoy various rewards and endorsements etc as a result of the WC. So it strikes me it is the duty of the players association to question those who don't support the WC.
  7. If the WC does go ahead then no its not possible because its clear they could have come and they have broken the international rules and calender etc. This is why any cancellation of the Cup or it's postponement is a total disaster. It's a move force majeure a coercion by the NRL to defacto take over our game. This whole issue is a total massive disaster... of HUGE proportions. And the wheelchair and women's games... !!! The idea of the Anzac carrying on in their game Pacific bubble is as nothing to what we have just been hit with. A giant steam train. I am very sorry to have to say, and repeat, to you and to everyone else ... But we MUST totally reorganize our game from top to bottom. And find investment. We are not in the last chance saloon even, we have been thrown out the back and left with the bottles of empties. Fosters of course.
  8. Yes but does he have pace now? I very much hope he has and I wish him well.
  9. Games being called off are a failure of protocols by clubs and players and because one player has got positive others have to isolate. Not many have tested positive and I'm guessing no one has got seriously ill, indeed many i guess did not have much in the way of symptoms. This is a serious illness and far and away the best majority of our population are now protected thanks to the efficient vaccine programme which will get a booster starting in September. Good luck to Australia when their next lock down comes round. Because their lockdowns are not going to work unless they start vaccinating.
  10. I will go further because it was cowardly to go behind the international board and the RLWC organisers and just come out of with it. They did not want to face anybody or discuss and clearly they had a hidden agenda. Cowardly bullies. COWARDLY. Cowardly is as cowardly does. COWARDLY.
  11. This is now, not October. And remember all this pinging stuff is not that all those pinged have been infected, just that they keep in quarantine just in case.
  12. If the WC is postponed then this leaves the way free and clear for Australia and Kiwis to go ahead and run their own competition. It then also helps them prepare for a postponed competition the next year and thus totally ###### up any practice England have. Ditto if the WC is cancelled. And if the WC is unviable then it will have to probably be cancelled. A wholly total shambles. I hope all Saints fans are disgusted and ashamed of Mal Meninga and likewise Wigan with Maguire. All ways up the international game is a wipe out. However... I read that Aussie Players Association say withdrawal is 'premature. Is there hope?
  13. What are you talking about. I regularly complain about how sycophantic people are about NRL and Origin and the Australian game generally. I presaged the Aussies backing out of the WC. The Aussies are self interested and insular. This event has huge repercussions if people stop to recognise it.
  14. How does this fit in with Old Trafford Man U and Sky schedules. We should go back to a Winter season with a brief break maybe after Christmas. But we must not go back to 30 games a season. Unfortunately, several clubs share with football clubs.
  15. Of course it needs to change. It's not really the razmataz of this 100 nonsense. But for goodness sake LOOK... They gave invented new teams and a new look, a new competition, new rules probably and the ground is full. And of course the TV are going all over it to talk it up. Here, we have 3 teams in Wakefield 4 in Manchester 2 in Hull and they are fighting each other to death... Ahab and the great white whale could not do it any better. And you say we are OK!
  16. I think you are unfair on Chester. Coaches do not go on trees And the amount of money they are given to work with does not grow on trees either.
