  1. I might agree with that but it ends up getting to the stage where we have the likes of Phil Clarke playing devils advocate over the top of all this, purely for the sake of discussion, and the result of these discussions seems to be that no-one in the commentary box quite understands the rules; with Stuart Cummings being presented as the "voice of reason". It just seems like another wage that Sky have to pay and yet another voice among many. I take your point, though, and some of the criticism I have directed here isn't actually at Cummings and in part backs up your point about it feeling like an "audition process".
  2. I don't really see the point of Stuart Cummings talking through the video referee adjudication. I don't see why Sky can't do what the BBC do during Challenge Cup games and listen in to the video referees comments.
  3. I agree and these viewers are also being further split by the WWE Network app and may be further split by the emergence of All Elite Wrestling, which has some fanfare behind it. If Sky wanted to they could probably wait and get the rights for All Elite Wrestling at a smaller price, should it manage to gain support from the depths of ITV 4.
  4. My concern would be getting his fitness up-to speed after being retired since the end of last season. I also wonder if this points to issues with James Laithwaite; who has had injury issues previously, hasn't featured in recent weeks, and who also came to Leigh following a period of retirement.
  5. Apologies. I would like to go to see a Nines tournament in Europe or further afield, but given my level of disposable income I think my first post is the more likely of the two to happen!
  6. When you're up against a "better" team you do what you need to do. Wigan could do with some attack coaching.
  7. To see an Isle of Man Rugby League side .
  8. With the accusation that Pearson is cheap, it's also a question of if he does sack Radford then how many players can he afford to replace, as there does seem to be an attitude problem in any event. It could well be a similar, but less extreme, situation to Widnes last year.
  9. I think it's more that Hull are too bad. Every attack Warrington look like scoring, with Charnley in again. Granted Warrington can only play what's in front of them.
  10. Too easy for Warrington, simple dummy and Austin is in through the middle.
  11. A lot of people base theirs on sentiment, my choice is in this vein. This one is from my first season watching Leigh: It was the first Rugby League shirt that I owned. It's not spectacular, but brings back fond memories, even in such a dour season; the highlight of which was Leigh beating a strong Hull KR team containing Stanley Gene: http://leighrlmatcharchive.blogspot.com/2010/01/1998-season-reports-leigh-centurions-22.html
  12. Just thought I'd share this, as you inspired me to look up Blackpool Borough and their shirts: http://rugbyreplicas.com/blackpool-borough-replica-rugby-league-shirt-1970.html It is a slightly better image. Not a fan of the big collars, although they all had them at that time!
  13. He did seem to pull up injured after that run and having just come back from injury I'd be inclined to believe that. He does have a history of knee injuries.
