    Their website hasn't been updated but the twitter feed says it's now Sean Rutgerson.

    Suppose Daryl Powell has done very well at Cas, he might be in their sights, and his odds have been slashed at the bookies. I thought they'd have someone lined up though, but they're supposedly delaying any appointment.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Nice capitulation by Hull yesterday. Not at all coincidental.

    Massive turn up for the books Catalans beating Saints in the Challenge Cup Semi final.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    London giving it a right go against Widnes in the middle 8s.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Broncos beat the Vikings with last minute monster drop goal. Fantastic.

    Leeds building a squad for the Championship next year it would seem...

    Catalan Dragons making a right mess of closing this Challenge Cup Final match out, be great for the game if they can hang on! 8 minutes left and one converted score in it!

    Fantastic final, and brilliant for expansionists like myself that the Dragons held on.

    Was reading earlier in the week about how the sport was once stifled in France. Great sporting story.

    You should read The Forbidden Game by Mike Rylance, it's an excellent book on that very subject.

    Wow, just turned over to Sky and Warrington have beaten Hull FC 80-10!

    Hull are already on their holidays I think, but tbf they had half a team out injured. Still abysmal though.

    Decision made, no more Super 8s or Middle 8s.
    Back to a 30 game regular season, 1 up, 1 down.

    These discussions about the best system seem to always crop up. It may change back in a few years! To be fair, I'm not certain myself which is the best format.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,002 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria


    Shame they're closing the shop more again, but at least there's still a glimmer for championship clubs. Main worry for me is how they intend to divide funds between top flight and the rest going forward.

    On the field, St. Helens have won the League leaders shield.

    Good win for the Broncos over Salford today. They'll fall short again this year, but they've given it a right rattle.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    London Broncos are into the million pound game, they'll play at either Hull KR or Toronto.

    Don't expect them to win it, especially if they play like they did today against Halifax, but still a terrific achievement.

    Epic game between Saints and Warrington looking at the updates on twitter.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Had 12 quid on Saints at 11/2 since start of season. No interest in GF next week now, don't want any of those 3 left to win!


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Heard Ben Barba didn't play well. Wonder if his mind is elsewhere.

    Well I wanted anyone but Wigan, so Warrington it is.

    Massive game tomorrow sees the plucky underdogs the London Broncos play the bankrolled Toronto Wolfpack for promotion to Super League. Don't hold much hope but COME ON YOU BRONCOS!

    It's on Sky Sports Arena from 6.30pm and Sky Sports Main Event from 7.00pm.

    Broncos lead by a penalty at half time. Toronto, to use Aussie parlance, are grubs.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,002 ✭✭✭✭Tom Mann Centuria
