Welcome back Wiganegg. Bet you were surprised a Saint backed you up @75.Enough about Leeds. Are you ready for Good Friday?
@77 couldn't have said it better myself! RU is the emperors new clothes, even half its rah rahs supporters rarely wax lyrical about it - best u get is gentlemens chess & apparently the thinking mans game!! Haha. Why? Well deep down I think even they know it's a pile of you know what!!
@74 Ok kicktastic just to prove youre talking BS http://www.rugby-league.com/superleague/stats/club_stats 8.2 tries p/game in super league vs 5.5 tries p/game (unbelievably, although half probably fatty push overs) in kick and clap https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016–17_English_Premiership_(rugby_union)At least if trying to quote facts quote real ones #unioncalculator #kick&clap
Anyway...... It was always a big task for Leeds to beat a team that is probably head and shoulders above the rest of the NRL.Super league got a bit to go yet to catch up with the ultra defensive NRL- but its still better to watch.
@84 The 2nd comment on this HYS is from a union fan slating league, so clearly your comment about its always league bringing union into it is clearly untrue.There are always more union fans on a league HYS mocking league, than vice versa.I enjoy both codes but prefer league,but don't feel the need to constantly deride union.
83At last you see the light.82 because some idiot reckoned this lot could beat NZ at Union.May as well say they'd beat Brazil at football too. Utter nonsense from deluded league fans.It's always League that brings Union into it, always trying to prove sonething.Let's face it league is not in the top 3 sports with Rugby in the title.
Yes Kicktastic you are right. Please everyone agree with him perhaps then he will disappear up his own ruck!
This HYS started out as comments about an English RL team playing an Aussie RL team. How the hell has RU come into this? Boy, have we got some fish on this site. Maybe that's why RL isn't progressing in this country? We know what we love, who gives a toss about the Henry's?
Why are RU constantly on here moaning about RL? Inferiority complex much?Also, comments about ‘core facets’ - quite amusing. Both codes have their own rules which have evolved significantly from the original form of the game of rugby. It has - even to the most myopic of RU fans - to be quite apparent that RU are trying to quicken the game up to be more like RL. Eg use it or lose it.
ref. my post @73, I've watched this afternoon a great RU game on Sky where Leinster beat Scarlets, scoring three tries to one in a game full of RL like handling and running. Now will trytastic agree with me? (He says he has nothing against league?!? )
Mac. As j said you aee deluded. I never said I was northern, but I live North of Watford gap, therefore the North. Or do you not recognise geographical convention either. As I keep saying nothing against league so 73/75/76/77, all wrong. It's just a simple game for simple people who can't play union or wont due to 100 year old stereotypical prejudices. Ps. I'll get my landing net
Kicktastic is off again. Even though Rugby ( place) is closer to London than Manchester he insists he is northern. He’s a psychiatrist’s dream case although the diagnosis is pretty obvious!
KicktasticSaid it before, onion is the emperor's new clothes! At what point, after countless scrum resets, drop goals, penalty conversions, full backs playing kick tennis, fat forwards rolling around having a push-and-shove-athon, do you turn to the guy next to you and say "brilliant game this is...!"If thats what you class as "real" rugby, you're welcome to keep it!!
@75, he's sad as well, why keep commenting on a sport you don't like ? Don't watch it, Simples !
Wiganegg - no use arguing with trytastic. He is beyond reason!See you on Good Friday! Can't wait!
WiganEgg, such stereotypes. In our county there are 97 union clubs, fielding over 300 sides, not to mention minis an juniors. There is one league team, with one team. We are north of the Watford gap. So few countries play league, that Aus b and c had to make up the numbersAlso last year more tries per AP game than super league, but why let facts get in the way of an inverted snobbery whinge.
As a life long "Saint" I prefer RL but enjoy and appreciate 6 nations RU, being influenced by my nephew who is a Leinster/Ireland fan. Both codes can be brilliant or dreadful to watch - depends on the day! So get a life 'trytastic' !SAINTS all the way this season!
@70 union is a southern game, league the northern game. Forever it will be so, despite the fact they'll try and lie & argue their game is national, as preston grasshoppers and wigan Ru are popular enough players to run 3 teams of fat lads. What they fail to say is they're only playing RU as not fit or good enough to play league, so opt for the social & a far less demanding game- ala 5 aside soccer
I’m sure Kicktastic will come back with his version of the truth!!!
