  1. I thoroughly enjoyed that, a very exciting and enjoyable game ..... and the wife only had to tell me twice to stop shouting at the screen. Well done Town, and a big well done to Keighley too.
  2. Shock horror headlines, "Water to run out in 50 years" (Well, water in chalk streams in the south east to be exact, but probably not if we take action now.) https://www.bedfordshirelive.co.uk/news/bedfordshire-news/water-run-out-in-50-5581896?fbclid=IwAR2reqF2UVUl5JhQZ0LMd2P8wwz8JsEejVRsnifnIxiZ2fmfX-zqOZoAsik
  3. 23rd September - Morrisons have Christmas nativity calendars on the shelves, on ITV there has just been an advert for 'Studio' with the backing song "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" that shows a mum hurrying home through the snow and neighbour tells me that they are selling Christmas tree baubles on one of the shopping channels, and here's me sitting outside in shorts and t shirt enjoying the sunshine. Surely it should be no Christmas related 'adverts' until 1st November, bah humbug.
  4. Broadcast deal for Championship and League 1“ Hopefully we’ve got a strong announcement on that to come. From a broadcast perspective there will be a good deal to watch next year and it should be of a high quality.” Does "there will be a good deal to watch next year" mean there will be a lot of Championship and League 1 games to watch, or does he mean the there will be good deal, that you can watch, if paying for it.
  5. SATURDAY 11th SEPTEMBER Barrow Raiders v West Wales Raiders North Wales Crusaders v London Skolars SUNDAY 12th SEPTEMBER Doncaster v Keighley Cougars Rochdale Hornets v Coventry Bears Workington Town v Hunslet
  6. From our local Herts Advertiser - "Don't go to pieces at the news that Harpenden is to hold it's first-ever jigsaw festival. The festival is taking place between August 27-30. Organisers have been overwhelmed by the support from the local community in donating and making up jigsaw puzzles and there will be well over 1,000 puzzles available to view and to buy over the three day festival", and before you laugh at the southern softies, the article ends "The original idea for a Harpenden festival came from one of the organisers seeing a similar event in Lancashire in 2019 and suggesting upon his return that our town might follow suit."
  7. Just channel surfing and came across 'Colonel March of Scotland Yard' (1953) on Talking Pictures TV, starring Boris Karloff. It had the strap line "Colonel March of The Department of Queer Complaints investigates unusual cases". It wasn't what I thought ...
  8. SATURDAY 14th AUGUST West Wales Raiders v Workington Town SUNDAY 15th AUGUST Hunslet v London Skolars Keighley Cougars v Coventry Bears North Wales Crusaders v Barrow Raiders Rochdale Hornets v Doncaster KO 15:00
  9. Another shake your head answer from (a repeat) of Tipping Point yesterday - 'The highest and most prestigeous British military honour was last awarded by the Queen to Joshua Leakey in 2015. What was it?' Answer "Was it a brooch?". "No, it wasn't a brooch, the answer is the Victoria Cross" "Victoria Cross? That's a medal?"
  10. See the post three up, thats the statement, don't know how the banner appeared .
  11. Just received this in my email - TOURNAMENT UPDATE RLWC2021 has been informed at very short notice that Australia and New Zealand will not be participating in the Rugby League World Cup this year. We understand this will impact our fans so please bear with us while we continue discussions with all stakeholders to agree on the best way forward. A further statement will be made in due course and we will communicate this with you via email as soon as a possible. Thanks for your continued support, RLWC2021
  12. On another site, an Aussie writes "Did we ever think that we’d see Cricket Australia agreeing to go ahead with a tour of Bangladesh in the same hour the ARLC and NZRL pulled out of a Rugby League World Cup in England? We should be so embarrassed as a nation and as a sport. But at least it's 'for the players welfare' and no other reason!!! "
  13. Just seen this now ..... think I am in shock. Just starting to read through some of the posts here, and the depth of feeling that has gone into them shows what this comp means to so many of us.
  14. Hi Sstollery, Marist means 'A member of a Roman Catholic organizations named after the Virgin Mary.' There are a few rugby clubs, league and union, called Marist. A quick Google shows there is a now defunct 'Marist Northern rugby league club' that used to play in the Wellington league in New Zealand. There is also a Trax Tavern in Wellington, NZ. Hope this helps.
