Re: Wigan Hall of Fame

Billy was as fast as he needed to be. It's amazing how many players "nearly" caught him.

Something had to give. In these parlous times, the sport cannot afford (both literally and figuratively) to have two sets of fat cats making a fine living out of the game, and often pulling in different directions.

Re: Wigan Tv

Thanks for that. The Granada telecasts I guess were only screened in the North of England, so I wouldn't have seen any of those at the time. i remember Eddie Waring on the BBC as a kid, but, having never had Sky, there are big gaps in my Wigan-watching.

Re: Top 50 players in Super League: 50-41

Don't see why Coote should be above Makinson (or, indeed, ZH, as they are comparable). Connor has done nothing on recent form (although he is talented), and Maloney and Folau, have they really done it at SL level? French is being flattered a bit.

Don't think SKY would wear us going back to winter rugby.

Neither would I. It's the most bone-headed idea imaginable.
