Well super league is back with us at last. I'm a St Helens fan and I'm really excited about our prospects this season with the addition of players like Leon Price, Francis Meli and Jason Cayless. Any more RL fans out there ? I quite like union but our game is much faster and more exciting than the 15 man code

I quite enjoy watching the 13-a-side code.

Sadly, i'm a fan of Hull Kingston Rovers  Undecided

All the best for beating Hull FC!

looks like just the 2 of us Nick. I remember when Hull KR were a good side. We have a young Kingston guy playing for us. John Wilkin. A very good player too.

Did you ever visit the old Craven Park, back in the day when HKR won every week?!

I only have vague memories of those times  Sad

No I never did go there Nick. The furthest I ventured into Yorkshire to watch rugby was Headingley.

Good man PJ. Who's your favourite team then ?
The saints have had a great start 4 consecutive wins now after beating Warrington last night. Poor Wigan lost again(sniggers).

I played amateur rugby league until I was 39. The last 3 years I played prop. There was never a Monday morning that my shoulders and neck didn't ache. It's great to see the game growing in popularity and I'd love to see clubs like yours get more support from the RL hierarchy.

Interesting site PJ. I'm impressed with the wizards' success so far. Maybe we'll soon see them in the later rounds of the Challenge cup eh?

Yes it was a fantastic performance. The first time we've won at the K C stadium. I don't know if you've heard of the rivalry between us and Wigan, but we're celebrating the fact that they're bottom as much as we are enjoying our 100% record so far. Grin
