  1. Well deserved for the Devon club and the great for the South West. Much respect due to them.
  2. Personally, left to me. We would go back to four up, four down. But That will never happen.
  3. Huddersfield 1864 Hull 1865 Swinton 1866
  4. Is that true though? Maybe you should tell Devon Sharks who have applied and are setting up a development club to take their place in the SWRL.
  5. Terrible news, he played in some of the best teams i have ever seen in rugby. I mean, you can't knock him. A true gentleman, a giant on the field, brilliant player.
  6. I just wish they'd get rid of Jonathon Davies. The lad was a grand player, but his commentary/Punditry makes me want to punch myself in the ears repeatedly. It's mental torture...
  7. I would like to see Swinton go up. I feel that for near 30 years they have been screwed over and over by past directors/owners and the Salford Council. If the council had backed the Lions the way they have the Red Devils, they would still be at home. I think their support have suffered for long enough. Then their mad last owner who just decided that they weren't going home and that they were going to lose their identity. I talk to their supporters sometimes and they would have accepted Manchester Swinton Lions as their name, but Manchester Lions was an absolute no no. I believe he didn't even consult them and when they found out from a rag comic (The S*n) they stood up to him and he bolted. Now there's talk he's going for Rochdale. That's no knocking of Salford, but they have a right to be hard done by.
  8. For me, it isn't. I grew up in an Irish family and have supported Ireland all my life in all sports apart from cricket and rugby league because in my youth, Ireland didn't have cricket or rugby league. Therefore, I have always supported England/GB. I can't change that now.
  9. He ain't getting on no plane.... which is rather ironic as he has had more air time than the RAF.
  10. The A Team - why would anybody hire them? They use millions of bullets and never hit anybody. Crazy Murdoch chappy isn't wanted for any crime and yet he aids and abets wanted felons every episode. Hannibal Smith smokes 500 fags and hour and never coughs. It's madness...
  11. I love the idea of running a rugby league club, but I am not sure it would be worth the hassle. Imagine, working hard to build a club and then the RFL don't want you anymore and they kick you out like they did with Blackpool, Chorley and Nottingham. Plus, they don't look after clubs. So many have come, so many have gone in my lifetime in the pro ranks. How many clubs have been and gone in the time they have taken over the amateur game? They have ruined that. I think until they can sell what is essentially a great product, then the game will always struggle. So why take a risk of investing in a club? But what do I know, I am just a Coyote? But the RFL reminds me of Acme, they have potentially great products, but they always let you down. That's why that stupid bird keeps getting away....
  12. I don't really understand why rules need to be changed all the time. The skill is already taken from the game and everything seems to be about speeding the game up. All the best elements of the game are gone as it is and now it's going to become kick tennis. The middle of the park will become baron land as another 40/20/20/40 sales over no man's land. Then we will have loads of excitement in the red zones as another big screen tells us whether a try is a try or not a try. If I wanted to watch the ruddy game on the television when I am at the ground, I would have saved myself a few quid and watched it on television at home. The mind boggles.
  13. Used to watch these with my mum who never watched rugby league in her life until Trafford Borough rocked up. I don't think she's seen a game since they shipped out either, This shirt no longer fits me very well. It must have shrunk in the wash. Still, it's my favourite shirt ever. It's hard to believe it must be 30 years old....
  14. Why should Dewsbury lose their club and their history because numerous Bradford owners have messed up the Northern/Bulls? Maybe Bradford should move home, but try living within their means. It's a novel idea, but it might just work.
  15. Giggs was a good winger and would have played at the top level. He wasn't bad at football either. Could have played for a good side like Southampton....
  16. I did GCSE accountancy with Denis Betts at Pendleton College, Salford. It was about 1991/2. I also played rugby and football against Ryan Giggs.
  17. Oh when the Saints, go marching in..... SUPER SOUTHAMPTON DON'T ALWAYS LOSE AT HOME!!!! 2-1.... GEEETTTT IIIINNN!!
  18. 1. Saints 2. Wigan 3. Warrington 4. Leeds 5. Huddersfield 6. Castleford 7. Hull 8. Salford 9. Catalan 10. Toronto 11. Wakefield 12. Hull KR
  19. I can't believe the chairman gave it the talk and then vanished when the support questioned his motives. It doesn't really make sense to me. I would be worried if he was coming to my club. I mean yes, he gave Swinton a big year. But he tried to change a famous old club and change the name without so much as a consultation with the supporters. I mean, it would be like somebody coming in and deciding Fartown were now a club in Bradford.
  20. North Wales Crusaders are not Celtic Crusaders/Crusaders. They are a new club that were formed in 2011. The supporters took a vote on the name and wanted to keep the Crusaders name alive. But they are a separate entity.
