  1. Good to see, flower, dudson et al. back full stop. They have a habit of selecting when they want to play for Wales and we simply don't have the strength in depth not to have them. Surely only a matter of time before Knowles is picked for England. Best loose in super league, we're lucky to still have him
  2. Great win for KR. Leeds have been in a bit of form and to go to headingley and pump the rhinos shows heart and some real quality at times
  3. If Hull KR had kicked all their conversions and penalties, they'd have close to 50 points on Leeds at headingley
  4. Blimey, 22-1 to London in the 2nd half. Shame about the 34 points shipped in the first half.
  5. Great article and interviewee. I suspect a lot of neutrals have a soft spot for London and Battye epitomises the team's never-say-die approach
  6. How did the forum go for anyone that attended? Why the desire to move from Queemsway? Whilst not smack bang in the middle of town, as you say, what alternative is there? Queensway reminds me of those Aussie grounds, with the banked, grasses pitch sides. I like it and walkable in 15 mins from the middle of town Edit, I've just seen your comment on the plastic free thread ref. moving grounds. Interesting on moving away from Wrexham, my initial instinct would be that's a bad idea. Obvs Wrexham is the biggest town in north Wales and i don't see a deeside or other Flintshire area pulling any crowds. I've not actively followed Cru that long, but it seems odd to consider moving, just as you're getting settled in a location. It would put occasional fans off I suspect and only the hardcore would follow, thus having to build a new fanbase in a new location. Btw, thanks for the update generally, much appreciated
  7. Get in Cru. Frustratingly inconsistent for us but we can beat anyone on our day, just need to learn to click for the full 80 week in week out
  8. A girlfriend from Leeds and her rhinos supporting family. Growing up in Wrexham, it's only really football, even RU doesn't get much of a look in. I was away at uni when the crusaders were in superleague, so missed that. Met the gf in London a few years ago and to get on with her dad and family, sat through a few games of RL on the tv. Once the initial prejudices and northern jokes were put aside, I was absolutely hooked and have been consuming as much RL as I can since. So much so that I joined a local rl club down south at the ripe age of 30, having never played any form of rugby in my life prior. The rlwc 2017 was also massive for me, absolutely loved it
  9. Agree totally. People will always find something to be offended with in the current climate, talk about capturing the zeitgeist.
  10. Not at all, Grace has scored more tries and made more clean breaks. Makinson comes out on top in metres made. The super league stats website is really good, even down to missed tackles charts lol
  11. Mate, we get it, you're dead against a GB Lions tour and have a hard-on for all things England RL. I don't know how many times I've seen you slate the GB tour and I've only discovered these forums a few weeks ago. Considering the state of promotion and advertising in RL in general, you could apply the same criticisms across the board. You may be highly aware of England RL announcements, I wonder if it has anything to do with you following them on social media? Here where I live outside the heartlands, England RL or superleague gets as much coverage as the GB Lions tour, nothing. If you're that against it just leave it be and let those of us looking forward to it do just that.
  12. What a miserable bunch here, people almost having a go at O'Connor and McDermott for being positive and upbeat. I'd far rather them be that way inclined than moan about every player. They may be a little banal at times, so what, far rather that than the dull monotone of Phil Clarke.
