  1. It's an excuse, but guess there isn't the money for alternate kits, but you would imagine some businesses would see this as a cheap way of sponsoring an upcoming sport.
  2. The kick-offs for some World Cup games may not be spectator friendly, but will be for daytime TV viewers. Could gain a few new fans who've only ever heard of "Wheelchair Rugby" from the Paralympics, which is nowt like union, let alone anything "rugby" at all.
  3. There must have been media there who haven't reported on this. Either they didn't think it was newsworthy, or we're willing to report on it.
  4. It's amazing how often we hide stuff on the app, rather than use YouTube, and I'm not sure why.
  5. Funnily enough, you can still see videos on Alex Simmons' channel of "Wagga" in blackface, which you'd think a "diversity champion" wouldn't want out there publicly, but has left it there like the RFL have this on OuRLeague.
  6. I still find it strange that this took more than a day to come out, despite it being streamed, and media being there!
  7. As there must have been media there on Monday night, why has it taken until today for a non-RL writer to publish the story? https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/exclusive-rfl-ralph-rimmer-fiji-28107245
  8. I hope he doesn't bang on about pies and pubs and remembers this is a serious competition.
  9. I'm not a Leeds fan, but aren't the reasons for the non-redevelopment of the Western Terrace obvious, with the houses right behind them. Wakefield have the same issue of their "away" end, but with houses of a slightly lower value in North Wakefield than North Leeds!
  10. The facilities are great, If other clubs want to host things, they'll have to improve.
  11. The one match would be used in the Fiji game
  12. Looking forward to Mick Morgan voicing the 2023 season launch video then!
  13. Commentators who say thinks like "double pump" because they've heard it on the NRL.
  14. If IMG banish Simmo and Wagga to the sidelines, they'll have started well. Someone at the RFL/SL employs them, despite all the evidence not to.
  15. I didn't mean to start a thread saying pretty much the same thing. All a bit tired.
  16. Take away the match, and what is there to attract to waiverer over buying a ticket? Outside the ground: Does Alex Simmons have photos of someone at the RFL/SL to keep getting work? Same old, same old. He's not a name to anyone outside a subset of RL followers, and, amazingly still, the presence of "Wagga" who he used in blackface on his show seems out of step with the TackleIt campaign, but I've said that before, and don't think anyone in charge appears to be bothered! Pre-match entertainment: Could have been anyone in the corner, paying for a bloke who used to be on a niche BBC station seems a waste of money. Added nothing. Half-time: Nowt! Bar an interview with the Woman of Steel, but why we're all the award winners paraded, along with those from the men's awards?
  17. Seem to have happened yesterday!
  18. The problem any Super League era player has, compared to those of the past, if is they didn't test themselves in the NRL, they certainly didn't do it at international level thanks to the results of GB/England.
  19. I've said before that it's probably better not to have a separate forum, especially because the status of women's RL is much bigger now, and only going to grow. Even if it's slow, there's no denying the rise in coverage of women's sport in general.
  20. Morley did it in the NRL. That puts he, an Ellis, above a Peacock etc. Not that I don't think Peacock will end up in.
  21. Would be interesting to know who is on the panel regardless. (Not saying anyone who is in shouldn't be, just who we trust with our heritage.)
