    And I had you figured as a Yorkshireman!!

    They have made the best move of the season getting Brian Noble, definitely made the difference between staying up and going down.

    Great result last night as well - long time since Leeds lost 5 on the trot.

    No! I see my work here as being primarily in an educational capacity... Prior to moving here I was engaged in missionary work in the South. To my eternal shame I have married a southerner and fathered a Yorkshireman. :oops:

    Yes, Brian Noble has worked wonders and in spite of all the problems this season I've really enjoyed watching them drag their way slowly upwards. Not safe yet but in a much stronger position than a couple of weeks ago. And interesting that Bradford also lost to London tonight - who next? - St Helens I hope!

    Can you remember the last time Wigan played in the second division? I can, but only just!

    Cheers D

    It would be humbling experience to do it again though.
    As for the missionary work.....................:eek:

    You need to contact one of our initial Moderators - Fishta - he was well into his rugby league, and though he isn't on tMP much nowadays (shame though, c'mon back Ian) I am certain he is still very much into his RL. :)

    'fraid not. I'll be at work doing a 12hour shift so i'll have to rely on the bbc/sport web page when the boss isn't looking! Don't think it'l be pretty viewing though.

    You weren't wrong. It was almost painful for us too; most of us have Cas as our second team.

    Wigan, Wakey and Quinns didn't do us any favours either!

    Salford!! Give over!!

    Though I suppose it's in keeping with your dodgy choice of football teams. :eek:

    Hull, extendedtheir superb run of form yesterday - that's 15 wins from 16, and clear into 2nd.:clap: :clap: :woo :clap: :clap:

    I'm much more of a Union fan myself but still enjoy watching league. Some of the attacking play and supportive line running is fantastic.
    I tended to follow Wigan only because they were the best at the time I became interested. I just enjoy watching anyone now though.
    Union players (especially backs) could and should really learn a lot from League.
    It will be interesting to see how Farrell does at Sarries this year.

    Cas Tigers for many years :rolleyes: ......although after the weekends performance I'm having second thoughts.

    It'll be interesting to see whether they come out fighting next game, although in the present state they will be lucky if they can field a decent turnout capable of beating the many amateur sides around here :tongue:

    I'm not a rugby League fan as such, I can take it or leave it although I enjoy watching it when it's on the box, but I sort of follow the Huddersfield Giants, partly because they're so closely linked with the Huddersfield footbal club (same ground/owner etc).

    Kind of hoping the Saints have a huge off day in a week and three days!! :-?
