If you have a polite word with the Sheikh, he might purchase the viewing rights 

I have got friendly with the guards at Shaab palace but don’t know if he actually lives there.

Shame the saints lads couldn't play but I'm sure their Aussie tour made up for it 

The Highlights to all the Saints tour games are on the clubs website. Lost only once (last minute try against the Roosters) and won the rest. Lewis Dodd player of the tour, outstanding in every game and I can see why Saints were now prepared to let Richardson go with this kid coming through the ranks.

This is captain Juncker speaking. The EU gravy train is about to enter Brussels, so will all Brits please exit at the next stop

To all remaining passengers, thank you for your continued custom and contributions to my pension fund

Kind Regards - YOUR PRESIDENT !

These Saints Academy tours are fantastic and a real credit to the club.

They went down narrowly to the Roosters but I believe they beat North Sydney, Souths and Penrith juniors. That's a successful tour.

A lot has been said about clubs taking players from other service areas but one of the big reasons Saints are so successful in attracting young players to their academy is the chance to go on these tours to Oz every 2 years. A large number of these young players never make it to 1st team and even fewer will ever make it to international level and the chance to tour down under so these academy tours are a big draw for a youngster.

I've never understood why other SL clubs don't run them ? The benefits to both the club and the players far outweigh the costs.

Completely agree.

When I was a teen in the 80's the Wigan District Council organised a tour down under for the combined colleges. I was playing for St John Rigby in Orrell.

I got through through to the final selection round and missed the cut. I was gutted, the chance to go to Australia and play Rugby League as a 17 year old was a dream.

I'm still disappointed 30 odd years later!
