Steady at Sheddingley when he left Morvin Edwards and Phil Ford sat on their khybers.

I remember being stood near some whines who absolutely slaughtered Steady at every opportunity and always ended by saying Who is Graham Steadman? I won't tell you what i said when Steady scored that try. Said whines then left the ground as the game was almost done for them. Happy days. :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Still love to watch Jamie Sandy at Wembley, still looks like he won't make it.
That's one of the reasons the Hardaker try at Headingley is one of my favourites you could almost feel the pain of the assembled whinos plus I think it was nine or ten games in a row we'd beat them

Needless to say they had the last laugh that season tho

I haven't watched anywhere near as long as you have mate but I reckon the game has become too structured these days - not enough players just 'playing what they see' and certainly not as many characters in the game. Maybe make an interesting debate for its own thread?

Having watched the Cup Finals highlights show at the weekend it is prety clear to me that as well as more structure, the players area obviouly bigger, faster, stronger. This makes for a different type of RL but not necessarily one that cannot be played "off the cuff".

One thing was clear for all the games shown on Saturday and that is the fact they were all played in May when the weather and pitches were pretty good. Trying to play "off the cuff" on a mud bath in the depth of winter was a tad more difficult and we regularly saw slug fests.

Because of this, it is hard to judge whether the game has improved but it has moved on.

Personally i much prefer the game as it used to be instead of the 5 drives and kick that it is now, but that is just my opinion

And that was his 23rd try of the season. That's quite a feat if they were all from full back.

Not for me Gateman, as said previously the game is too structured for it to be anything other than mildly entertaining, Most of the players are built like forwards now and could play in any position, the term 'utility player' is now commonly used for good reason.

I watched an old game the other day, the '85 cup final where backs looked like backs and forwards looked like forwards, I looked at Brett Kenny and thought that if he was to be signed up for a club today the first thing they would want to do is bulk him up by a couple of stones.

It tells you all you need to know about where the game has gone when a player like Massey is lauded for the 'skill' of finding the ground fast to achieve a quick play the ball.
