Another interesting point ...todays games were viewable via StuSports ...some guy in Saints land who broadcasts the rugby league games on the net ...we watched Sheff-Donny (very entertaining) then the main event ....there is a chat box aside the screen...today was the biggest crowd internet wise ..loads of people from France..didn't go down well with some of the norths finest ...all the french babble popping up ...had one or two good conversations myself ..but ...anyways ...some interesting rumours ...readon out at wire was old news but .....Noble off back to the steam pigs and Trent Barrett back at Wigan ...plus Morley on the move ...
LMAO you know Saints were under pressure last night and they brought Fielden on I thought thank **** for that the donkey will drop it and behold first touch
Thinly veiled? I must work at that The blokes a big soft glass jawed donkey.
The ref made a few donkey decisions last night and I'm not including the two tries. Saints were knackered good job wigin are crap as they were there for the taking.

What do we all think about the 2 ref system boys??

Personally I'm not enjoying the footie as much since the introduction of the 2 refs. I think the game has speeded up too much resulting in too many handling errors and loss of defensive play. There is too much emphasis on points scoring now and the error count has gone up accordingly.

I would much rather watch a tight defensive game with a score of 10-6 or even 4-0 than the 42-14's and 40-24's we have seen over the last couple of rounds.

Phil Gould (bless 'im ) commented last week that the players were having problems holding onto the ball or receiving passes but surelay that has something to do with trying to play the game at 100 miles an hour and score off every play. Quality has to suffer somewhere but that is just my thoughts whats yours?

:curse::curse::curse: bunch of over paid ...over rated muppets .....Wigan of course ....it was the most inept souless display ever .....

Good on Salford though ...only their third win in 50 years at Leeds ...


...and just to give me a smile in a day full of woe Wanky lost again ...

Why is it only the losing coaches mention fatigue...they are supposed to be finely tuned professional athletes ....years ago it was six 12 hour shifts down't mine 4 gallon of bitter 26 meat pies and 2 games at Easter ...they did it with ease.....Like Johnathan Davis said modern day players are "pampered and soft"

If its like last year you won't be able to miss us.................the only 2 people wearing aussie shirts in a sea of Bro's we had a good time but.
Luckily all the kiwis were there to watch their team and have a bevvie or 6 and there was no hassle just good natured banter.
Was a bit scary at first
