  1. This thread reminds me of when I was coming back from Wembley on the train after a CC final.... probably Leeds v London. One Day county cricket sides had just adopted monikers to their names. A group further down the carriage were talking about this and couldn't remember what Yorkshire had chosen as their nickname. Up pipes an old bloke with a distinct Lancashire accent who shouted out...."Lads, I think you are looking for the word B*stards"
  2. Ray Seldbow......dirty bar steward Chris Pandelling...great passer of the ball Ed Eyetackle....concedes a lot of penalties Lee Keydefence....about to be subbed Lou Sedd....old school prop
  3. I would thoroughly recommend that you join your Uni RL team. I did so thirty odd years ago at Lancaster and can honestly say it was the best decision I made whilst being a student. I still have happy memories of those days and made friends from all backgrounds and various nationalities. I played for several clubs after Uni and nothing came close to the camaraderie of Student RL. Don't worry too much about your size/height. RL players at that level come in all shapes and sizes. You've got an advantage in that you know how to play the game plus you will be a lot fitter than the average player with your athletic background. Maybe your Uni has a second team you could play for and if so you can ease yourself into the game that way. Go for it.....you won't regret it. And welcome to the forum
  4. No comment on your first two selections. Number 3 is fine by me. But number 4.....I'm sure there's a team that's out there somewhere that you could follow post lockdown... especially with your avatar
  5. Australians Greg and Tony Austin played for Rochdale in the mid 80s. Greg later played for Salford if my memory serves correctly.
  6. The only figure that I have seen is an estimated 4000.
  7. Come on....cut our Canadian friends a bit of slack. They haven't learned to shout out Gerremonside yet.....Sine die may take quite a while longer to enter their vocabulary.
  8. Well said. It certainly messed me about for the last hour or so.
  9. Went on a city break to Berlin last year and found it to be a great place to visit. Plenty of history and lots to do in the short time you have allocated yourselves. I would also recommend Vienna if you are culture vultures, and although much smaller than the usual destinations, Salzburg is also worth considering.
