Without any shadow of doubt 


Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Yeah someone shouts ‘pick up the pieces’ but it’s still pretty much an instrumental I’d say.

Must give an honourable mention to a pub band from Bradford, who comprised larger gentlemen and were known as Above Average Weight Band. 👌🏻

Like it.

Leslie West of Mountain once released a solo album entitled The Great Fatsby.

A personal favourite, maybe not to everyone's taste, as it is a sort of overture. It is based on elements of songs from the concerts at which it was played as a pre-recorded introduction. The band is The Nits, from the Netherlands and this is 'Torni: Music for two Towers'. Maybe it works better if you already know the songs.

Had genuinely forgotten about that. Even so, can’t help but expect Pete Shelley to interject at any moment with that camp sarcastic style of his.

Couldn't agree more, mate. You're just wondering when the vocals are going to kick in.

Not really an instrumental as such, but this popped up on my Spotify feed and thought it pretty bloody good.

Classical etc. is probably best given a separate thread, which be quite interesting in itself.
