I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Very sad news, RIP. Always came across as a warm bloke and passionate about RL.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

So sad to hear this news

Harry Gration has been a mainstay on local TV throughout most of my life. I met him once in 1990 when he was covering the Wakefield v Australia match at Belle Vue, he was an approachable, likeable bloke< the only person I ever knew to fall out with him was Bobby Fulton, ironically on the same night

RIP Harry and sincere condolences to his family and friends

Met him at a business awards ceremony in Sheffield a couple of years ago and had a bit of a chat about RL. You could tell he was a proper fan and had a couple of great stories. 

RIP Harry.. condolences to his friends and family

How much was he loved by his colleagues? This much.

Desperately sad.

RIP.

Not gonna lie, welled up a bit at the end of the Sky coverage then. Very nice little tribute.

That interview with Fulton was legendary.

Sad loss.

RIP Harry.
