29 Mar: SL: Paris St Germain v Sheffield Eagles (Retro Match Thread) Sky Sports - 7pm

Recommended Posts

Have a feeling that alot of all this new revenue from Murdoch will end up in players' pockets and not sure that existing spectators will adapt to all the strange kick off times. Will clubs lose revenue as there won't be the number of games we are all used to etc.

Still, it's a new beginning and the game was in the mire before the truncated centenary winter season. Enjoyed the world cup too.

Believe Charlety is in the student quarter of Paris. It's a spring night so let's enjoy ?

I don't actually think the PSG experiment was doomed to failure. Would probably have more chance of succeeding today if the football club's Qatari owners happened to be interested in having a team in a trans-Atlantic rugby competition.

Good day for game over there just never capitalised on first up crowd. Paris obviously has links to our sport way back to first game there in 1933. 

There just not enough clubs nor benefactors these days to consider a pro team. It aleast gave thought to a french team in competition which we seen infield and very good average crowds with catalans. Obviously the holy grail is for france to be winning tests v big 3 which is still I say a bit off. That said the dragons cc success of 2018 would have shown mainstream france that sport making progress there. Toulouse are making plenty of right moves to join there fellow french team.

Well I am hoping it doesn't rain so there will be no sparklers on the TV coverage as me sky dish reception gets affected by poor weather.

Believe there will be music when tries are scored or a team needs motivating.

Rugby League in Sheffield is a joke - they'll never win anything.

I can't see Mark Aston sticking around at Sheffield forever.

Come on, Eagles! This'll be easy.

Sheffield won't win tonight as fairytale ending is a PSG win.

Sheffield might surprise everyone one day. Win cup, combine with Huddersfield, leave ground built for 1983 world student games event.

Who knows❓?

Here we go, a proper "watch it together" moment for us all.

The band are Toure Kunda, and they are pretty decent.

Ohh, the old ad-break crossword question! That's a nostalgic rush, right there.

I am corrected ?

World Student Games began in 1983 but not at Don Valley.

Don't know why I got so confused.

2020 pandemic possibly has something to do with it.

Back to 1996: has Freddie Banquet scored yet❓

Stevo announcing each pair of players as they took to the field - that didn't last.

Good to see Greg Kacala in action after all these years.
