Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

3 that always bring us a smile are

Neil Cowie drop goal (even Matty Elliot enjoyed it)
Henry Paul length of the field drop out try against Saints
Kelvin Skerrett's Superman impression during a fight

Nice one sir! I am truly amazed that the Henry Paul try doesn't get shown more - I've never seen anything remotely like it.

And just to be controversial - that Joel Tomkins try at Wembley where I was sat (well, standing as he took off) right behind him. Maybe also, Sam's try at The Stoop where he planted his feet in the field of play - reached over the line to grab the kick and then proceeded to beat virtually every player on the Broncos side as he went 60/70 metres to score.

But mostly the way that the team at the end the matches go over to talk to fans, pose for pictures and prove that RL is still the best game in town.

Are we talking about the same try? The one Meds was describing and I remember was where Henry Paul dropped out from under our posts - the wind pushed the ball back to him and he then went the length of the field to score. How do you get to be offside from your own drop out?

Think it was Rads or Faz who kicked, Henry set off slightly offside, the ball bounced in between Sonny Nickle and maybe Prescott, Henry then ran between them collecting the ball and scoring, or at least that's how I remember it, was an excellent try :D
