  1. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Wigan Athletic Always makes me chuckle. Up the real Latics.
  2. It's interesting to read more chat about the glory days, the demise, and the hope of one day maybe reliving those times to a certain degree. Fans of other clubs (both RL and football) have certainly managed to achieve a lot "out of nothing", so it shows nothing is impossible.

    The majority of the league can’t afford the testing to get it going again. However, 3 or 4 clubs have invested in their squads in the hope of promotion to Super League, and want a restart. My prediction is the RFL will draw it out so long it’ll be too late to restart, and promotion/relegation will be dropped for this year. To be honest though, I’m glad it’s not me making the call.
  4. Aye, he’s from the village of Blacko. Was on Man Utd’s books and had interest from Man City, but chose to concentrate on his rugby league, which is always good to hear. https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/02/22/farnworths-epic-journey-from-red-devils-to-red-hill/
  5. Very true mate, but I’d have thought Wane would prefer a sterner test. Perhaps one game vs an Exiles team, followed by a game vs Wales/France, where England could experiment with selection would work.
  6. England vs Exiles. Gets the England side together under Wane, and providing Super League gets going again I reckon an Exiles side would be stronger than a French/Welsh side that features players that haven’t played due to comps being cancelled (assuming the Championship goes the same way as Elite 1). Some may see it as a gimmick, but it would be a chance for the players to get game time played under the new coach, more important with a World Cup coming up.
  7. Have we ticked enough ‘northern stereotype’ boxes in this thread yet? ?
  8. Sorry, disagree. The minor nations will love the chance to play in the World Cup, even if they know they have no realistic chance of winning. Saying that, I bet Tonga reckon they have a chance in 2021. Scrapping it for another club competition would be a backwards step in my opinion. I’m very disappointed not have an ashes test this year though!
  9. Looking forward to it all starting up. The last two rounds with no crowds pre-lockdown weren’t ideal, but it’ll have to do for now. Do Sky put the games on ‘catch-up’ after they’ve aired, or is it a case of renewing the NRL app if I want to watch them at my leisure?
  10. Last season I think I paid £17 for the first month then it went up to £22. I chose to cancel it when the season finished though. Do Sky put the games on the catch up service? I have access to a Sky Go account now.
  11. Is there (or has there been in the past) any sort of indication that the club wants to secure further funding, to move towards a new permanent home? I can’t believe (maybe naively) the club is happy to bounce between L1 and the Championship, and between White Bank and Bower Fold, depending on the league, with no meaningful income. I don’t doubt there’s isn’t a long line of people wanting to invest in semi-pro rugby league, but surely there is a long term plan? Having recently started following the club more seriously for the first for a good few years, hearing a fan that won the lottery and wasn’t able to invest any of it into the club just beggars belief.
