Re: George Burges

That he left after finally finding the form we all know he’s capable of still annoys me to this day Me too! If you take in to account all the years he played for us, think we more than got our monies worth out of Sam. i suppose some will see it as he was outstanding in his first stint before leavin...

Re: Super League’s 12th club to be announced on Monday

The sport is incredibly depressing for me at times. Replacing Toronto with Leigh just sums it up. Surely this reduces the appeal of the sport to TV companies? I must be wrong. We're on the march back to a regoinalised semi-pro competition just like the old days IMO. You think Sky care whether it’s ...

Re: Challenge Cup - BBC contract extension

Is there any information about how much they're paying and how it compares with the previous deal? And don't they sell on some games to Sky? In general the BBC give better coverage of RL than anyone else, via local radio, TV and website. The British press coverage in general is pathetic. There was ...

This means the same great coverage of the Cup will take place, with the B...

Re: Super League’s 12th club to be announced on Monday

Disappointed but not surprised. Leigh probably have the best squad at this point but they'll really struggle to survive on only half the cash of the other super league teams. I wanted Toulouse but they may well benefit from missing out this time around. They'll now be in a league without the team t...

Re: Super League’s 12th club to be announced on Monday

i've posted my views on this before and it really depends upon what the wider game wants to achieve, but personally i really do hope that it IS NOT Bradford this time round as that would just be corrupt. They have achieved nothing to warrant being promoted, currently do not have a ground and have on...

Re: Head Shots

I think it’s all abit of a joke. Yes the club and the committee of any sport should take care of you the best they can but sportsman know what there getting into when they take up certain sports. To say you’ve got something wrong with you after your career is finished and it’s because the bangs to ...

Re: Zak Hardaker hits out after being fined by RFL for celebrating

I'd seen Zak's post earlier and thought that it was ridiculous to get fined for celebrating. i get the elation of the Saints celebration, as i think Wigan players and fans would have been exactly the same if it was the other way round, and think its right that they arent fined. however, when players...
