Re: The Boxing Thread

Have you tried getting BT Sport direct from Sky? They offer that now. And it’s often cheaper if you Phone up. I effectively got it free, as I was paying 30 a month to BT. Called Sky who added the Channels through them, have new contract with it all on for 40 less than I was originally paying. So wo...

Re: The Boxing Thread

Ok cheers, well I pay enough for Sky & BT sport without having to fork out for something else. I get that My Sky bill is £100 a month and an extra 20 quid for BT sport as well, and that does not count my mobile phone which costs an extra 15 quid. I think the extra we pay for the likes of the Joshua...

Re: Rugby League

Announced today. Buzzing. That is 5 real quality signings so far for KR and give us the 1 thing we have lacked since 2015. A pack that will drive us forwards. We ain't going to be bullied this year, and the speed of our backs will torment defences as we showed last season. . https://www.hullkr.co.uk...

Ok I'll bet you £20 that Hull KR will end up in the bottom 4 of the SL next season.
Your on. My winnings can be sent direct to Downs syndrome sufferers.

I agree I think they will really struggle & are likely to get thumped by some of the established teams. At least Hull KR should be able to remain in the SL at their expense!!
You want a bet for charity? We will not finish bottom 4 this season.

Re: The Boxing Thread

Thought Joshua was very impressive last night, some mighty upper cuts would normally have ended the fight much earlier against a lesser mortal than Pulev, But he was outclassed. Bring on Fury, can't wait for that one. I pick and choose which Sky boxing I watch and I did not decide until the first f...

Re: Rugby League

Yes, very happy with that. They are a well run club with lots of community work and involvement.
I doubt it will be long before they hit SL.
Also of course, a nice easy ride for me to get to.

Re: Taking the Knee

Re: Taking the Knee

Is this what you want? The "State" is coming down on the Millwall fans and saying they can't boo. Just how far should "The state" be allowed to dictate to individuals? Again, if the booing was racist it was wrong, but if it was protesting the taking of the knee they should have the right to say they...

Re: Diego Maradona

I remain convinced that, good as the second goal looks, had their minds not been scrambled by what happened just a couple of minutes earlier he would not have got as far as the box because someone would have made sure he hit the deck before getting that far.

How did I know that I would be dragged into this somehow as the argument took an argumentative turn? As to Maradona I did not like him.

During the Grand Final the commentator said that he expects teams to return to training at the start of January, not much of a break for the players.

Funny how in both semi-finals the losing team scored a penalty first & then were thumped, although Catalan self destructed with their indiscipline. So who do you think will win on Friday?
By default and because of my intense dislike of Wigwam !!!

If there is any doubt, then they should refer it to the TV ref. I agree one of the try's did have a forward pass in the build up.

Was he injured our in oz or was he just not fancied to play? At 32 he'll almost certainly be past his best especially as he is a winger, where you need to keep your pace to remain competitive & effective. Time will tell if he is a great signing or not. No the management simply did not fancy him. Th...

Re: Rugby League

We have today signed Ryan Hall.
His time in Aus did not go too well, but at the point he left not many UK clubs would have said "no thanks" to signing him.
32 years old so hopefully has the 2 years left in his legs that we have signed him for.
