Re: English cricket.

I have made it quite clear I am not a cricket fan, but even I got caught up in it and having turned on for 10 minutes to watch the start of the end while waiting for another program to start I was there until the end. A great innings by Stokes, but lets leave it at that. Why diminish an innings like...

Re: Altrincham

Oh dear, I feel a row coming on! We were okay in patches but didn't seem to try to attack the box especially when 10 v 11. Little penetration but still a points a point.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

I have little time for either side to be honest. Clearly remember Bolton when Phil Garside was in charge during their time in the top flight, He put the suggestion forward to the premier league to close and prevent promotion into that league. If I remember correctly he did the same with the Champio...

Re: Rugby League

Are you sure Ed, I think they're are playoffs and the winners meet in Toronto for a one off promotion match. All they've won is the league leaders shield. Do you think Sky would allow promotion without a million pound game? So I agree it is unlikely but Toronto could be in the Championship next sea...

Re: Rugby League

I guess that whoever gets relegated will hope that the Toronto Wolfpack go up this season, otherwise it could be tough to bounce back next season if they are still in the Championship. They are already promoted, which shows the advantage they have compared to when we came back up. They can sign pla...

Re: Rugby League

That's some trip your planning Ed. I'm sure they're will be a few twists & turns before the end of the season. As I've said before, all the sides in the Superleague are capable of providing stunning results or play awful. Hull KR are capable of either performance, as are all the other sides at the ...

Re: The Areana

Maybe the fond memories of playing at Bishop Auckland are because we won a lot of games there whereas The Arena has some very painful ones.

Re: Rugby League

Shock results today as London won at Catalan & Salford beat Hull. It throws the relegation battle back into the melting pot. Until last night I was totally confident.

Re: Rugby League

Impressive win for Wigan, sorry Ed I didn't see that forward pass and the commentary team didn't see it either. Bevan French certainly looks like a quality player and Zak Hardaker is now very consistent with the boot, which obviously won't please Rob... I don't think Rob will be over worried. Zak w...

Massive game tomorrow night as Wigan are at home to Warrington. Wigan should be favourites as Warrington will probably have to rest a few players in readiness for next weeks Challenge Cup Final.
Yet again Pete, first try a clear forward pass with lino 6 feet away from it

Re: Rugby League

I think the cost of bringing in effect VAR into all superleague games would be very expensive and is realistic that a side like London with crowds of around 1000 could justify the costs of VAR being introduced to their home games. perhaps you could have a partial VAR system brought in by the bigger...

Re: Rugby League

Have to admit Ed that having seen the tries on the TV, there looked like 2 forward passes for our go ahead try at the start of the second half. But some of your defending and tackles were abysmal. It is the effect of it happening week after week against the top sides. "Here we go again. What is the...

When your struggling most of the decisions seem to go against you, it's the same in football. But when you are doing well all the decisions seem to go your way. Yes I agree. It is normally because you are back tracking and do not have decent ball. Last night was not like that. You attacked. We atta...

Didn't make the game tonight at the DW Stadium, but it was good to hear commentary on 5 Live Sports Extra and great to listen to Wigan coming out on top, after a fairly equal 60 minutes. Still fuming. Totally level game until Wigans 4th try which came from a blatantly well forward pass. Talking to ...

Re: Expectations 19/20

I am a great believer in a good start brings a good season.(Yes I remember 1969, 2000, etc), I would love take a start of something like 4 wins a draw and 1 loss as an indicator we could be there or there abouts. To my way of thinking we could do with a good start simply to pull a few extra faces th...

Certainly a good set of results for KR this weekend. Funny week. We have only won 3 times there in SL yet I was entirely comfortable all week we would get the result.

You got a penalty when your player had clearly pushed our player and you couldn't breach our defences when you had an extra man. At the moment our defence is superb and it comes as a shock when you managed to score 2 try's. Pete you need to learn the rules mate. The "Push" you refer to and the subs...
