  1. Jeez I spent 20 years sitting in that stand for Leeds games and I never thought it would end up an icon. It certainly wasn't exposed to the wind like the new place though and it was good at hiding empty seats.
  2. Yes they're a fundamentally different type of full back. Walker generally can't pass but is a great runner. Connor much more creative for other players. It depends what you want from a full back (we'll see what Agar really prefers if Myler and Walker are ever both fully fit at the same time). Edit obviously you'd really like someone who has all the skills but 1998 Iestyn Harris isn't picking up the phone.
  3. Ah, one of the first sounds of Spring.
  4. Don't pretend being against morons making moronic observations is somehow anti-free speech.
  5. OK, who can spot the bit where Charnley does the thing that gets him the 2 match ban.
  6. He won the '99 Grand Final which was some acheivement, although it helped that Bradford always choked against Saints. But it's fair to say his spell wasn't entirely without incident. Who can forget that time the club suspended him (in the middle of the '99 season) and then said he'd tried to swap Keiron Cunningham for Richard Pachniuk and Tommy Martyn for Graham Holroyd? There were sit ins and all sorts of fan protests, it was amazing to watch from a distance. Then they did it all over again when they sacked Millward a few years later. Saints ban outspoken Hanley Rugby League: Hanley denies transfer claims The board then eventually did get rid of him less than six months after he won that Grand Final. St Helens sack Hanley
  7. The so-called Bradford fans who love to pile on their club on Twitter really are the worst.
  8. And yes there were some people who thought he would be appropriate to be part of the Channel 4 coverage.
  9. For some reason that tweet of his was recommended in my feed despite me not following him. I stuck him on mute as I can't imagine there ever being a post or opinion of his I'd want to see.
  10. Was trying to work out who it was. I don't want to be nasty but it's like someone who's learned English as their second language.
  11. Why should we change, they're the ones who suck.
  12. I don't want to speak for @Davo5 but I suspect it's not the castle that's silly, it's the aesthetic crime of trying to incorporate it into a playing kit. It looks awful and a mess.

  14. Samoa's coaching problem solved: Matt Parish Out. Richard Agar In. According to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
  15. Here's something I don't understand - Cas lose Powell, a coach who has clearly led them to over-achieve during his tenure, and replace him with someone most people knew wouldn't do great. Yet somehow they managed to create such a sense of optimism that they sold out the Jungle for their first game. Wire bring in the over-achieving coach whose teams play a decent style to replace a nice guy who bored everyone to tears for four years. Yet Warrington's crowds go down. Perplexing, it can't all be marketing can it?
  16. Their involvement in Rugby League in the past has, at best, been mixed so we'll see how this goes.
  17. The Featherstone-Leeds romance is off Rhinos agree dual registration with Bulls Said Hetherington, "This change has been brought about primarily because Featherstone Rovers no longer have the same need for our emerging players. They have a large and strong squad of their own and are focused on winning promotion to the Betfred Super League this season. “We need our talented young emerging players who aren’t selected to the Rhinos 1st team to be playing at the highest level to aid their development, which is our main priority and this new arrangement with Bradford Bulls and Featherstone Rovers works for us all."
