Not to excuse it....but when you get 70,000 plus folk together it is not surprising you get a few odd idiots.Quite right tho we can do with out it!.Generally tho RL fans are the best!.Players certainly lead the way...what a bloke Paul Wood!....hope he gets well soon......then gets a medal.As for Sir Kev.....a statue at least 1000 Meters tall of solid gold towering over Headingley would suffice
Djd thanks! I hope it is only a few throughout RL. If they want families to attend, we cannot have these people ruining games. I agree, we dont want them!!Roll on next season!
off switchLike I said was only a few ( and you are right they were singing Leeds Utd songs) but had a great time with the proper rugby fans, good banter, handshakes at the final whistle, i am not gonna say warrington do not have these sort of fans tagging along as we have plenty and it is a shame as our great sport does not want them,
I am so saddened to hear about bottle throwing. As a season tkt holder of the Rhinos, I have vowed that if it ever degenerated off the field, I would stop going. I hope these were what I call the "elland road" type supporters, ie not true Rhinos fans. Warrington fans were terrific, just like Paul Wood-best wishes to him. Loved the comment "Leeds Vampires"- its true, we always play at night-Scary!
was a great night even if the result wasnt the one i wanted. about twenty idiots near me throwing bottles and starting trouble, but the TRUE rhinos fans were amazing and apologised to us for them so more than made up for it hats of to sir kevin what a performance !!!! best team won and I have no complaints. Paul Wood !!!! it smarted a bit.........yikes
When are Leeds going to change their name from Rhinos to Vampires- can't win in the sunlight (Wembley) can't lose in the night (Old Trafford)- good game and hats off to Kevin Sinfield great player, true sportsman!Let's see that sportsmanship across the terraces too.Semis last year- Final this year- Champions 2013Woodie- you're a hero!
My vote for next years Man of SteelPaul Wood
Great Game Great atmosphere worth every penny.Shame about the yobs on both sides we dont need them. Roll on next season
Now Outstanding Rhinos, Tremendous Heros, Excellent Rhinos Never Stopped, Tremendouse Iconic Neversaydie Kevs Superstars, the capitals say it all.
Why is the moderation here so slow. Lets face it the vitriol thats allowed through I am surprised it is moderated
Mr Bitter Northern1964. First comment on here, just had to add to the many contributors that have hammered you. The reffereeing was just as bad for both sides infact a bit worse for Leeds. The game was terrific and played by 34 true sporting proffesionals who would all be embarrased to read your pathetic griping. You should be watching the round ball game you would be far more at home.
...here. When asked to defend what you say, you go silent - or nasty.Your behaviour on and off the pitch has been the worst I have ever seen in "adults." You wear your politics as proudly as your Springboks' Shirt. You won't deal with my query on scrums, since the honest response is that cheating means the time spent on them is wasted. Sorry to bore anybody, by the way! Bob
Hello, NeverTrustLabour, are you still here? Your post, and silence since then, sum up my 30+ years experiences of RU types. You make big criticisms, but refuse to engage in a grown-up discussion. You're fast to attack other sports(only set of people who do that) but won't talk about your own. Your ideas are arrogant prejudices. With luck, the moderators will let me carry on with this case....
As a Saints fan, I have to take my hat off to Leeds - consistently the best playoff team over the years (and yes - I was at all the Saints defeats!!). Great game of rubgy. Paul Wood - what a brave man to play on in what must have been a great deal of pain! Sinfield was magnificent!
What was so bad about the ref? Disallowed a leeds try for a flat pass, missed a headbutt on Sir Kev etc,
Not going to lie, im a leeds fan and we dont deserve to win the title because we played poor through the season and champions shouldnt lose 11 games in a season etc. However we won i am proud that we have won and i am sick of other fans blaming the ref. Get over it we won, we peak at the right time....YAY Paul Wood = True man
