Pointless

Did anybody see Pointless earlier this evening?

The final couple were asked what they would spend their winnings on should they win the jackpot.

The Bloke stated it would go towards flying to Canada next year to watch Warrington Wolves play.  Best laid plans and all that.

He also said that he thought that the next year would be Warrington's year. (ok,I made that bit up,couldn't resist)

In the introduction the same guy said he was a tennis coach and a massive rugby league fan. Armstrong went on to only talk about tennis and ignored the other sport.

Met a bloke once who said he cleaned toilets for a living and he said he had met Will Carlin once- i asked him to tell me all about his toilet job.

The programme was a repeat. Dig far enough back, and you'll probably find the original thread about it, but searching for the word "pointless" in a forum dedicated to RL discussions will probably give you far too many results. :kolobok_wink:

Are you honestly stating that Pointless gets repeated, what's the point in that.

The presenters do have to go home and see their families occasionally, you know. Plus Richard's got a media empire to run and about three other shows on the go, and Alexander has a Classic FM gig.

Adam, a contestant on this evening's show, was a touch-judge in Albania's first ever Rugby League international, apparently.

I thought this was going to be a thread about recent games involving Hull KR.

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Founding members of the Northern Union would be my fantasy last round question 😄 Any one of Tyldesley, Liversedge or Brighouse Rangers must be candidates for Pointless answers.....

Sorry, that category's not available today. How well do you think you'd do with naming rare breeds of poultry?

Not kidding - that's been a regular category for the final round for a whole season so far. Nobody's selected it.

Answers worth going with: Vorwerk, Onagadon, Ixworth, Marsh Daisy, Scots Dumpy, Brabanter or Suffolk Chequer.
