    Could have been the other way round ....

    Originally I think the RWC wanted to play 3 matches at OT, but United could not accommodate them.

    Just back from Manchester yesterday and they are now starting to tart up the Etihad a bit. Attendance there will be less than 2/3rds of the OT attendance and it will be a little chaotic for some of those Union toffs. Traffic in the city centre is a bit chaotic at present with the Mancunian Way down to a contraflow and works on other important roads. OT remains readily accessible though (didn't have any problem getting in and out for last Wednesday's Champions League match but it was a complete PITA getting to the velodrome which is right next to the Etihad)

    Topics... never been a fan of the nutty chocolate. More of a lion bar man myself.

    It's good to see that the big game in Manchester on saturday evening will be between Leeds and Wigan and not England and Uruguay.

    Am I the only one who thinks it was a deliberate ploy by union to play in the same city on the same day as Leagues showcase match?

    I'd be suspicious of their motives, it'll be great to see Old Trafford sold out anyway, should be a cracker. Come on you Rhinos!

    Should be a cracking match. Was there the last time we played Wigan when Jason Robinson scored the winner. Really hoping for a Leeds win so Peacock, Kylie and Sir Kev can go out on a high.

    Well deserved if they did win it. Shame Sinfield is finishing his career in Union though.

    Needs more kicking.

    Phew, avoided any nasty old points from anything other than kicking at Twickenham.

    Another half of Union unsullied by tacky tries.

    Esit: Don't know what Ireland are thinking this half. Scoring tries, tsk tsk.

    Cold or worse on the way. Can't sleep. Flip it.

    worse on the way.
    You're OK for now - United are not due to play Liverpool again until January ....

    I know but I'll have the cauldron of emotion and anger that the England v New Zealand b team will create next month or the ferocious atmosphere of England v France. It's going to be chaos as usual here in the Rugby League forum.

    Watching Father Goose on Film 4. Leslie Caron was LOVELY in that film.

    I think the Rugby League forum could be a role model for the rest of boards, more forums like this and boards could have a nice rest. We never cause the deelies and doodats and computers and stuff any problems due to our average number of posts per day.

    Be more like Rugby League people.

    Did not remember Audrey Hepburn was in The Lavender Hill Mob (she played hooker for Batley Bulldogs Beasty)

    "Batley Bulldogs Beasty" Like the ring to that - did you suggest they extend their name like that DWW?

    All Blacks played like a Rugby League team, great to watch.

    Watching Les Dawson on BBC 4, he was a funny man, some of its a bit dated but there's still some very clever jokes.

    Would have been a Salford Reds man I'd say.

    Turf, briquettes, coal or wood next on the fire?

    For some reason I could not load the last page of this thread. The only way I've managed to do so is by changing my display default to 40 threads a page from "forum default"

    Think the Unionists are corrupting the site .....

    Spooky thing is that it's happened since I changed the title from running with no issue, boards working fine to current title!



    I think this current page is probably the best page amongst a plethora of fantastic pages (plethora, good word) though, so well worth your effort changing your display settings.

    A really interesting article I read today, an interesting take on the African American civil rights salute in the 1968 Olympics 200m award ceremony. The Aussie who came second and his story. Genuinely fascinating read.

    Was going to comment on how predictable the Rugby Union world cup is with a New Zealand v Australia final, then I thought, it's slightly less predictable than a Rugby League World cup final.

    RL Kiwi haka is still better than a All Black haka though.

    Thread title is strictly inaccurate - I deleted a thread in October 2013 and permabanned the OP, although I did it at the Sports Category level rather than just in this forum .....

    Is that because you've christened that ban hammer? is there anyone (other than me) still allowed to post here?
