Other Senior Rugby / Re: England Squad
« on: November 15, 2019, 01:03:24 PM »
Just spending a well-earned break in the Cape. The locals are very complimentary about England in general, but decried their boorishness in either not accepting and/or removing their silver medals and not really admitting that they lost to a better side. I did notice this at the medal ceremony and rather hoped no one else did.

I have never particularly liked many in this England team as individuals and unfortunately was unable to gainsay what’s being said here.

Hello, Flaggy. Well it was well worth the effort to call in and see you in the 300 Bar - not sure they’d have got a Fire Licence in the UK ! I liked it so much, I went back there on Saturday night to see Japan v Scotland - great atmosphere.

Eventually got out of Tokyo 48 hours late to Hong Kong, thence to Shanghai and home midday on Saturday.

Great to meet all you Ribb lads and who knows when our paths will cross again... Cheers !

A toxic combination of age and beer renders protection unnecessary....

Ah, Flaggy.... as it happens I'll be on my annual business trip to Japan the week before the England v France game. Regrettably, I'll be leaving that same Saturday morning to Hong Kong, where I'll watch the game on TV in Delaney's Irish Bar.

I did try and get a match-ticket when I booked my trip - they wanted a trifling £750 for it ! Plus, my hotel wanted 50% more for the Saturday night and the flight to Hong Kong on the Sunday would have been 50% more too. So that would have been around £1,800....

There’s an ‘official’ predictions league on the Rolling Maul forum under Regional Premier Leagues.....I think you’ll get more reaction/response there. Cheers.

North One / Re: Welcome Kendall (not Stockport) ... who knows!
« on: May 31, 2019, 09:35:22 AM »
Ah ! Kendal, is it ? Well it’s a great trip for sure and we started and ended the season playing them, with comfortable victories, happily.

Their new Clubhouse is a Meridien compared to Scarb’s Holiday Inn and it’s an all-round great set-up. It costs an arm and a leg to run apparently.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, it cost £8 to get in - I wonder if that’ll reduce in September....

Used to be called Davenport, changing to Stockport in 1992. Ilkley used to play them occasionally in the pre-League era.

They were relegated from North Premier in 2017, having registered only two points, but finished 5th in NW1 the Season after. This year they finished 7th with an identical win/lose count of 13 each and 70 points - one was a 38-17 victory against Blackburn....

Bad luck, Scarbs. You’ll have to finish top next Season - I’m sure you’re capable of doing so.
