Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread
Well, I never saw an official thread started for Rugby. So I thought I'd start one. I'm not even sure if they are any fans of Rugby on the forum but if they are, here is a discussion thread for Rugby now 8*D.

- All Talk about Rugby League & Union goes in here.

Not a fan of Union really, grew up on league though seeing as St Helens old stadium was up the road from my house.

bump for the new season :mark:


NRL premiers Manly will have a serious crack at winning this month’s World Club Challenge title, the club naming a full-strength squad for the clash with Leeds.

All 14-members of the grand final winning side still at the Sea Eagles will be part of the 20-man squad which will fly out for the UK on Friday.

Co-captain Jason King and winger David Williams, who both missed last year’s decider because of injury, have been named, along with winger Michael Oldfield, Darcy Lussick and Dean Whare.

New buy Ben Farrar amongst the other recent signings.

The match will be coach Geoff Toovey’s first genuine contest in charge of the Sea Eagles, having assumed control following the club’s acrimonious split with two-time premiership-winning mentor Des Hasler.

The match will be played at Headingley’s Carnegie Stadium in Leeds on February 17, with Manly having beaten the Rhinos 28-20 to win the 2009 World Club Challenge at Elland Road. - AAP

Manly Sea Eagles squad for 2012 Rugby League World Club Challenge: Brett Stewart, David Williams, Jamie Lyon, Steve Matai, Michael Oldfield, Kieran Foran, Daly Cherry-Evans, Brent Kite, Matt Ballin, Jason King, Tony Williams, Glenn Stewart, Anthony Watmough, Jamie Buhrer, Vic Mauro, Darcy Lussick, George Rose, Joe Galuvao, Ben Farrar, Dean Whare.
it will be interesting to see what line up Toovey goes with in this game. Oldfield is a good youngster who broke through to first grade last year but Farrar is a good utility who can play pretty much anywhere from centre to lock. I'd probably pick a side looking like

D Williams

Bench: Farrar, Lussick, T Williams, Galuvao

Rose the fat cunt can fuck off but we'll no doubt pick him over someone like Lussick. Whare is a speedster but im not sure he has anything else to his game and Mauro is just a solid player but just not as good as the others which is a shame as he's a hard worker. Works part time driving a shuttle bus to supplement his footballing wage.


As far as the NRL season goes i think we'll easily make the finals but i don't think we have the squad depth this year. Our backline will look very flimsy if Williams, Matai or Stewart break down again and you know Matai is good for at least a month out with suspension as well.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread
I find it funny how in New Zealand, every year, the newspapers predict we will win the NRL. Same with the A-League, Super 15 and all that stuff.

Anyway, go the mighty Warriors! And Hurricanes.

Leeds will own Manly.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread
like the last time when we smacked them up? Your Manly hate hasn't died down in the off season Adam. Maybe the Knights can give us some competition this year so you don't slice your wrists when we crush you guys again.

Up the Knights and Crusaders!

On a related note, did you guys see anything from the Castleford vs Salford game in the Super League? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zeqr...59FUAAAAAAAIAA about halfway through the video. I've played in mud, rain, -5 degrees and on a partially frozen field, but I can't imagine playing in snow that thick.
