Culcheth definitely in Warrington.  When I was at school all my friends from Culcheth HS were Wire fans unlike the Penketh lot who were Chemics.  Is Penketh still little Widnes?

You must have wondered why LEIGH golf club has been in Culcheth for over a hundred years.

Northerners really are a bunch of wusses. We've seen it for years at London Broncos; forced to pay way over the odds to get them to move only to then see them whinge and moan incessantly before return

I really find it difficult to grasp the notion that just because one person can deal with it, there is an expectation that everyone must have the same coping skills or they are somehow weak if they do

I don't go on this forum all that much, but assume this guy is a parody account?

Over here on the dark side, Headingley golf club is in Adel, Moortown Golf Club is in Alwoodley and Moor Allerton Golf Club is in Scarcroft; therefore I don't think the location of golf clubs is necessarily a good indicator of local boundaries 🙂

Anyway... here:

I am pleased that if George Williams returns home he will have this thread as a comprehensive guide to the boundaries of Leigh and Warrington.  Invaluable.

He won't be going anywhere near Leigh, or Culcheth for that matter. He'll be living the dream south of the river when he signs for the Wire 😎

Were in leigh could you put a golf club, my youth saw slag heaps, burning rucks, methane gas from marsh playing fields, and thats not out of place then, and back to when the golf club opened leigh was a small town surrounded by lots of others, Atherton, Tyldesley, Hindley, Lowton, Golborne, Culcheth, Astley, all seperate towns.

Wait, what? So there was no grass in Leigh so they had to have their golf course in Warrington?

Only when they grassed over the slag heaps and former rail tracks. If you don't count school and sporting clubs most areas we reclaimed land, marsh playing fields on a former tip with methane coming through years later, in Westleigh slag heaps were eventually grassed over and football pitches put on them. Leigh was boxed in from all angles with smaller towns then wigan, warrington just on the other side of Hindley and Culcheth.

Some of this is in jest, but could it potentially be a good move for Canberra to let Williams go home to the UK for the rest of this year if he agrees to sign a long term deal at the Raiders beyond 2021? His partner would be able to return and have the baby, George gets a break and some home comforts and returns when it is easier for players and families to move back and forth. The Raiders then might get George for a further 3-4 years.

Could be on his way to Warrington?, they were after him a few years ago.

That's true. Widdop is angling to get back to Oz too I think.

True he was shopped around for a pittance in the off season and many clubs say Widdoff.

Those areas are accepted as very rough areas in oz and the words used are used in the media.

That may be so. 

However your post contains overtones that were race-centric, and unnecessary IMO. Substitute 'pakistani' and 'bradford' for Chinese and Sydney and you will hopefully see how out of place you look.

Was I surprised? Not especially.

"Kid".

had a good first half against the knights but am afraid went missing in the second half where the raiders recorded a big fat zero on the scoreboard in their latest defeat, knights not really fielding a  world class 7 in crossland to oppose williams either

There will be a risk that his partner refuses to go back because she doesn’t want the baby growing up on the other side of the world from grandparents.

I have no issues with anyone wanting anything in relation to family in the current climate. There will always be another player to fill George's shoes at Canberra. If he was to perform at the very top of the NRL for another 5-6 seasons, however, he could set his family up for life - but that is not a carrot for everyone.
