  1. There was an article on the BBC website of the greatest sporting photos of 2021. There was a decent photo of an American Footballer taking to the air and yet I’m thinking what about Tommy Makinson, Tom Johnstone or Tom Davies scoring a spectacular aerial touch line try? If it’s not bias then why don’t we get a look in?
  2. Such a beautiful place. Hard not to draw parallels with New Brighton
  3. Got to admit, as a neutral, when I’ve looked at where I think teams will finish that I have Salford struggling. I certainly hope that’s not the case and that they can catch a few teams ‘cold.’ For them to do that, they will have to get the best out of the pack and hope that Croft and Sneyd can build on that momentum. The back line has as much if not more quality than most other Super League side IMHO.
  4. Looks a great name to have on board, that being the case
  5. I can’t see any link there to the new main shirt sponsor. Who are Zodiac? Is this a good name to have on board? Obviously it’s better than Cash Converters but who are they? Are they well know in France. Until recently I have spent much time in the Pyrenees but I don’t recall this name…that said I hadn’t heard of Asus (Wakefield) so could be a huge company for all I know.
  6. Pretty sure that Clive Griffiths made mention of this in one of those excellent League Express interviews. They even had a major sponsor willing to plough money in, this money was lost when they ended up with a lower division side. I agree that Wales has been one big opportunity missed after another. I can only hope that one of the Welsh Clubs builds slowly and solidly into a side that can challenge, a little like Newcastle appear to have done, it looks like North Wales may now do this in Colwyn Bay.
  7. Thanks John, I hope you and the team have a great Christmas
  8. When will this year’s edition be available through kindle? I can see previous years but not 2021. Cheers
  9. It wasn’t from there but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t both originate from the same place. Perhaps I was confused in any case, has O’Connor gone on loan? Looking forward to Leeds challenging again this year. They have their best squad in years IMHO.
  10. Sorry, I realised that but I thought I had actually seen his name mentioned as going on Dual Registration specifically.
  11. Is Gannon going on dual registration or loan? I thought I read he was. Good prospect.
  12. Dallimore has stepped down. Not officially ‘retired’ but has personal circumstances that mean he won’t be able to commit to his contract. Very honourable of him and still working with the club. Would love to see the Cumbrian sides go well.
  13. Thanks for the explanation as sad as it is to read.
  14. Me too. I think he will, otherwise what is the point in bringing him over. Mourgue looks a great talent and it would be a shame if he ended up elsewhere.
  15. No harm done. Genuinely wishing Catalans all the best for next year, just with a bit more of a French accent mon pote.
  16. I wouldn’t argue with much of that. It’s been a great joy to watch Casty, Bosc, Gigot and others. Personally I would like to see them have more French lads playing but as you say they wouldn’t be where they are on that basis. Be interesting to see how Toulouse get on both results wise and in developing French first team players.
  17. Catalans are a genuine big club, my responses were for Heavy Wig who seems to have gone all Donald Trump with facts.
  18. That’s a great stat. One to be proud of. How many French first team regulars can we expect to see running out for Catalans next season? By the way I would love the answer to be a lot higher than it will be.
  19. Ah I see, I knew this went on in junior games but I didn’t know how common it was to have fans run the line tbh. Yeah I agree, if they are all going to cheat then why bother anyway.
  20. Interesting. I am not condoning abuse of any officials but it never ceases to amaze me the abuse that referees get when the touch judges appear to offer little support.
  21. Which ‘homegrown’ Catalans players have Saints poached? How many players have Catalans signed that have come from Wigan’s academy? There will be as many of them in Catalans first XIII next year as have come through Catalans own set up. I have spent many great times in the Pyrenees and was made up when Catalans started out, Catalans have done phenomenally well to reach a Cup Final and Grand Final but the number of homegrown first teamers after all this time makes me despair. You are attempting to pull Saints up with some interesting facts, not sure where you have got these from. You’d better let Saints know that no lads have signed up from the academy to the first team squad this year, just in case they start publicising that they have.
  22. Don’t be ridiculous. Compare the make up of the squads and have a proper think.
  23. Are you saying, as a referee, that you can’t trust touch judges or is that a typo?
