Re: Could Refs Please Demand Proper Tackles?

I can see the point that Kinny is making, but isn't it a skill in itself to be able to retain the ball in such a manner without committing an offense under the existing laws?

Bill W (2) wrote:In my playing days (many years ago) once when I was playing openside - I was once cautioned by the referee for tripping. The b***ard fly half sidestepped me but I had left a training leg behind.
Is that like stabilizers on a push bike Bill?

Re: Castro contract worth £300,000 a year?

e) finally if it crumbles will there be the same level of casualties from the fall out ? and will Leeds and Wasps etc. follow Richmond and London Scottish into Liquidation and remergence in the lower leagues? Blimey, so Castro could singlehandedly ensure the demise of Waspies, just by signing a con...

Re: The Low Value Cup

I think the LV cup serves it purpose and to some clubs it is the "High Value" cup. For example, Quins are not year on year guarenteed HK qualification so if the win the LV cup then next year, HK involvement and income will increase with High Profile games. Likewise for teams such as Leeds, Newcastl...

Re: Tigers Birthday Draw

I'm trying to find it on the website so I can see my name in lights but, as yet, it has eluded me. As anyone got any ideas where to look? I think it used to be in the 'Fan Zone' area but just checked and can't see it now so maybe it was a victim of the revamp. It seemed to me that it was kept up to...

Pretty sure it was for a trip.
