Re: Benny

good to see Ben hurting and has the fight to want a starting 13 shirt back. IMO no-one has a divine right to a starting spot / shirt, they need to work for it and earn the right. If Al saw that Bens performances werent up to the reward of the no 10 shirt, then he needs to earn that back by impressin...

Re: Zak Hardaker/Gaz Hock

Just, belatedly, watched the awards evening. I understand he was cut a reasonable amount of slack (irony) at the time, but, if Gaz Hock had had the support Zak H had, what a player he would have been for club and country. I'm a great fan of his, so I'm obviously biased, but do you thing the extra a...

Re: GB v NZ 3rd test Spoiler

I don't disagree with what is being said It might not be popular and you could point out that it is damaging the International game BUT I think any player that moves to the NRL should no longer be eligible for international selection Yes. That means no more Bateman but we need to disincentivise pla...

Re: Rugby League Ashes returning and England’s newest stadium to host

As much as I want to go to these games, I’m angry that massive games for our sport are being held at football grounds AGAIN 🤬 much as i agree Josie i think if we are to grow the game and attract bigger crowds then we need to use football grounds. i mentioned on a post recently about GB that i was u...

Re: Will Wigan Warriors take on AUSTRALIA next year?

i bloody hope so

this is something that i think has been missing from RL / International RL for too long. i'm not saying they need to be on tour for months on end, but a proper 3 test series with games against a couple of top SL clubs and Cumbria (was always on the tour) would be great for the game

Re: Fancy diving

whilst i think that McGillvary should have scored, i think it also highlights that you need players playing in their natural positions. I am not blaming Hardaker, but does anyone else think that he could have passed earlier or taken on the line himself (little dummy and back himself against the insi...

Re: Poor attendance

Agree with most points here regarding coverage and promotion. Playing devils advocate, what is the BBCs real incentive to dedicate time, resources and money to advertising Rugby League on their website, radio channels, tv advertising etc? As a service that we pay for they should be promoting not on...

Re: Tonga v GB Lions spoiler

i think the performance probably summed up the team selection and some of the general performances of the players over the last 12 months. 2 wingers massively out of form, although i thought McGillvary played well 1st half, but only seen 2nd half highlights. Hall IMO was one of best wingers in the w...

Re: Poor attendance

I agree entirely with your comments Pieman. I realised you weren’t having a personal dig at me btw 😊 The RFL/Super League Europe/SKY/BBC really need to sort out what they want from our game! They want to show live games but have no interest at all in advertising, in advance, on any type of media in...
