Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.

Just as a testimonial should be, new side for the first half and a chance to see greats from yesteryear in the closing stages, great crowd too sometimes life transcends everything and this was one of those times.

Spot on and to be fair to the Leeds club they did him proud.Also what a gesture from JJB to take a back seat on what should have been his big day.Top lad.

Strangely, and unintentionally, JJB may well have benefited from his noble sacrifice.

I understand there were 20,000 there. How many would there have been for a JJB testimonial? 5000 at best, I'd reckon.

"Do the math" as the Yanks say.
