Good game today, roll on Wigan-Salford - could be a classic
why is there no women's ruby league coverage. the bbc's obsession with male sport is a disgrace.
Always makes me laugh this M62 corridor garbage. RU is completely a southern game. Sale can't buy a crowd and in any town that RL is played, RU doesn't exist. The media being southern biased make RU appear bigger than it is!
Good look 'the PIES' Tomorrow !
Ref 38In that respect mate, all teams are NORTH of the M62 Corridoor !Need to expand the Sport 'down south' but it will never happen as Southerners think of it as a strnge sport played by weird Northerners who wear flat caps, own a whippet and say 'ey bye gum' a lot!
Is tackling optional in Rugby League? Not watched much league this year to be honest but suprised how poor tackling has become and so easy to break tackles and get yards over gain line.
Why on earth is the refs mike turned up so loud? Totally ruining the coverage. If I hear MOVE one more time. We don't need it...
Really looking forward to both games not knowing who will win - me and the missus will be at the final whoever it is. And it's brilliant to see the great game of rugby league on the BBC. Needs to happen more often!
Salford been mis firing recently, however in Watson they have a fantastic coach and I expect them to be uber well prepared. The CC needs to go back to its original slot though, treat the lady with respect !
@24. Posted by Jotnar__INGAll teams in Super League are south of Leeds.So not only are you wrong, you picked the furthest north team to make your point.
Big RL weekend on the BBC, two big games and one day before, one article, one piece of advertising for their upcoming RL presentation........!
Call me a dinosaur but I preferred RL when it was a winter game with adverse conditions, plenty of rain and mud.
good luck to all.remember many years ago being on a tube with Hull+Hull KR fans on their way to the final.Great atmosphere,different members of same family in different shirts,totally non threatening all out for a fun day.Shortly after on tube with arsenal fans going to cup final,total opposite,abused threatened + very frightening. Same as RU,no segregation but no trouble.Football?no thanks
In the Coach Park at Wembley, I remember meeting a bunch of fans who have attended the final from the year dot. They were from the south of France. Now that's one hell of a drive . Allex les gars !
32. No, GF winners should be the premiers, top 4 play-off, it's not a home and away season with the magic weekend obviously. And what if teams have a few injuries early on in the season, if it's first past the post then their season's over. I want to see players and teams under bigger pressure at the end of the season.
Disagree with John Kear. Leeds will beat Hull and probably take the final against Wigan. Just. What are the bookies offering?#31 Seem to remember that in days past the now defunct Championship cup play-offs came after the Challenge cup. Oddly, not many teams won both league and championship cup, if I remember rightly.Shame that the grand final win gets more credit than the league championship.
Challenge Cup should be the last domestic match of the year on the first Saturday of October, with the SL Grand Final on the last Saturday of August. 23 SL matches a year, 2 play-off weekends.
