Re: Rugby League

London Bronco's get relegated, congratulations to Wakefield, Huddersfield & Hull KR on staying up. Glad to be rid of that season. Such a disappointment after so much hope. Watched the game and yet again we managed to loose despite being ahead with less than a minute to go. This having refused 3 eas...

Re: Extended ban

Don't know him at all but saw what both he and his mates said when he was banned first time round, which included him saying he was sorry and would serve whatever ban the club thought fit and learn from his mistakes. Unless someone who has a grudge against him has deliberately lied to get him into t...

Re: Democracy under threat.

Honestly man, at this stage I think we just need to leave without a withdrawal agreement (as mentioned previously, all that was discussed during the referendum was a trade agreement, not a withdrawal agreement, two different things) and crack on with the trade discussions; not just with the EU, but...

Checked the odds for relegation from the Superleague & they are as follows.

London 1/2
Hull KR 9/4
Wakefield 10/1
Huddersfield 16/1

I reckon those are pretty attractive odds for Hull KR.
Who are they with?Like those odds and fancy a nibble.

I can't see Hull KR winning at Salford, which will mean due to the point difference means Wakefield can't get relegated. So I can see London winning & sending Hull KR.

Re: Democracy under threat.

That isn’t what I or the figures said...at all. Of the population who voted leave (obviously they didn’t ask all 52% - as I say we don’t have the data you have to base it on polls) 33% of those people would be happy with an exit which was no deal.

So, come on remainders, how to we re-unite the country is you get your way? So far all I have seen is basically to brush it under the carpet and try to forget it ever happened.

What I do not see is how we actually repair the country 1 way or the other. Both sides are now so entrenched in their stand. Remainders say we were lied to and now know more, while those who want to leave are not prepared to give up on our stance that the democratic process says we must leave before...

Firstly, to join the EU we were forced into giving up 80% of our trade with our natural allies, the Commonwealth. They have already clearly stated they would welcome that trade back. 'Natural' allies is an interesting take on the formation of the empire like. Those left in the Commonwealth are ther...

Ed, we already have those trade deals. What you’ve said is basically, “you see that Christmas card there?

I mean if you are going to harp on about facts the concept of an EU army which was created to try and get voted out of a certain demographic but doesn’t actually exist isn’t a brilliant starting point. We are members of NATO that is about it in terms of allied armed forces. And then say that they v...

Re: Democracy under threat.

Watched a "Brexit debate" on I think channel 4 last night. The main argument anyone could put up for staying in was that "We did not vote for a no deal leave". Quite correct. Neither did we vote that we must have a deal to leave. We voted leave.Plain and simple. How can people use guess work,(yes, p...

So you need to win on Friday, as I can't see you beating Salford. If London beat you, then I can see them winning at Wakefield. I guess if Warrington beat Wakefield, then that should see you mathematically be safe, as Wakefield & London can't both win next weekend.
Yes, so simple isn't it?
