Re: Mirrorless Cameras

Have read that, The one I'm looking at is good for 270+ shots so not bothered on that score Most reviews say real world shots are far higher. My camera is a Sony A77 SLT so has an EVF. Absolutely no issues with battery use and that is even with the GPS turned on which according to those who don't o...

Re: Salary Cap

Outside of the USA where they crown their own teams world baseball champions or whatever I can't think of one sport that is successful that does not have proper internationals. Even with what you might term US sports the fact a Canadian team just became champions is seen as positive and a way to ex...

No Tautai, interestingly. I wonder if He has played his last game for us?
Lam has said he can't pick him until the clubs internal disciplinary procedures have been completed and that he will be told if he is available for selection.

Re: Jackson Hastings ???

Or perhaps they know he's signed up at Wigan and have just put out this story of a bid for mega money to placate their already disgruntled supporters in the knowledge it won't (can't) be taken up. Why on earth would they raise expectations they know cannot be met? Giving their supporters false hope...

Re: Jackson Hastings ???

Reading that Leeds have made an immediate offer for Hastings,so who knows what’ll happen Depends if we had him sign a contract or instead came to one of IL's gentlemen's agreements based on a shake of the hand. :roll: The Leeds offer is supposed to be £400k to sign immediately. Losing Hastings now ...

Re: Wigan Warriors' Dan Sarginson set for move to Super League rivals

This is my view as well and its amazing how quickly what the none star players do for us is forgotten. Its was Faz early but you only have to watch the leeds match to see his importance. You can't put Faz in the same bracket as Escare. Faz is one of our two first choice second rows alongside Greenw...

Re: Can we finish in the Top 5?

But, if you get in the play offs you obviously have a shot. You do and I said the same thing myself above but this time we are back to the top five system and to win it from outside the top two I think you need more than just a fully fit team. When Bredford did it under this system it was, I think,...

Re: Hankinson

Agreed, Frano WAS a good player, however, it's doubtful that he would have been in that side were it not for his kicking. He would be the first to argue that. He decided to go for the goal kicking in order to help secure a place when he first arrived. John Monie didn't understand why he'd been sign...

Re: Wigan Warriors' Dan Sarginson set for move to Super League rivals

For what it's worth, Escare was outstanding for us in the end of season play-offs and run in to the Grand Final, when we won our last dozen or so matches, in virtual knock out scenarios. it wasn't just his switching with Sam either, because Sam was out injured for a number of those matches. He's no...
