    The mighty black and whites of Hull busy tearing Huddersfield a new one in their play-off. 28-0 with a little over twenty left.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Super League starts tonight.

    Big game to start with as the Black & Whites, replete with new captain Gareth Ellis returning to blighty after four years down under, travel to Headingley to take on the champions.

    Willie Manu (now with Stedly's Saints) will be a big miss for FC, but looks a stronger team for 2013. Be interesting to see how Daniel Holdsworth, ex of St George and latterly Canterbury, links with Seymour at half-back and Westerman at loose forward.

    The great Steve Prescott, St Helens, Hull, England and Ireland full back turned heroic fund raiser who raised thousands for the Christie Cancer Hospital in Manchester and the Rugby League Benevolent Fund, has finally lost his 7 year battle with a rare form of cancer.

    In other news, since I've dug up this thread, I feel like having a rant about the state of the game in this country. Because I'm bored. And because it's an utterly infuriating farce.

    The RFL have made mistake after mistake after mistake for years now. They sold their soul to Sky, who have taken the it for granted and seem to think the sport owes them something, only putting in a derisive bid for the rights to show the world cup, by all accounts. They've struggled to market the game, with Super League lacking a major sponsor for over a year now. The Super League clubs are at loggerheads with the RFL over the format of Super League beyond this season. Over the last few years, Bradford, Crusaders and Salford have all gone bust, and other clubs are looking like heading that way as well - Wakefield are in severe financial difficulties and are on the edge of administration by all accounts, and London Broncos (who've been a lost cause for about 15 years now) struggle to get attendances of more than 2,000, haven't got a ground to play at next season and currently only have a squad of five players anyway! And on top of that, playing figures at the grass roots are well down. Sport England's active people survey estimates that that number of adults who participate in rugby league once a month fell from 131,900 in 2008/2009 to 76,800 in 2011/2012.

    The people who run the sport have let it down on every level. The whole lot need lining up against a wall and shooting

    But wait, there's more

    To all Scotland Rugby League Customers please be advised that the RFL have withdrawn their funding from across the Celtic Nations therefore with effect as of 5pm today (Friday the 15th of November 2013) there are no staff working on or behalf of Scotland Rugby League until the Rugby League International Federation make a decision on any future funding for Scotland.
    It's as if they don't want people to like Rugby League.
