But I'm sure the view on the TV is just as good ... mwhahahahaha )

Apparently the first NSW try wasn't even grounded properly, I haven't seen the highlights yet ... I am easing myself into the day gradually

Not a bad start for my footy watching career, I'll definitely be back for more ... although the way the Broncos are going it maybe be downhill from here ...

One of Roy's family live in the same street as my parents their number 14 my parents 4. When they arrived my parents started getting their milk delivered they told Roy's rellie and she immediately left a note on her doorstep telling the milk man not to deliver to number 4.


The Elephant lane story is that Roy was touring Australia and whilst being interviewed by the Aussie press was asked where he came from ' England' Roy replies 'whereabouts?' asks the journo trying to get a proper answer ' Top of Elephant Lane' answers Roy

Are you lot trying to say some of our players are thick
When I had the pub on the Wakefield Trinity ground some of our academy lads weren't the sharpest knives in the box. After one evening training session a prop called Mickie Clarkson (who is a legend among some ex Trinity coaches for his escapades!!!!) asked if he could use my phone at the end of the bar. As I was serving a customer I heard him say "ello can I 'ave a taxi please?.........."Clarkson"...................."Wa kefield Trinity ground, Belle Vue" The person at the other end must have then asked the him where he was going and his answer in a MOST indignant tone was............."[email protected]#*ing home" and promptly put the phone down. His taxi never showed up and he had to ring his mum for a lift
