You are never boring Benny!!

Even if you explained it in words of one syllable, I'm sure I'd still not understand. LoL

Told the club about this redirect (and what I'd do about it) via their "Contact Us" form on the website (I'm hoping that form hasn't been hacked too).

Let's see what happens!

My girlfriend would disagree! :)

Australian from Italian squad announced with NSW Cup experience. I think I see the pattern here. Expect more of the same no doubt to be announced shortly from the Lebanon, Greek and Cook Islands squads. In all seriousness this tactic could work. We needed a bit of experience and our additions this off season have given us that. Clearly we have drawn a line under signing from other Championship and SL clubs.

My forlorn hope is that one of these under-the-radar signings will be the new Mark Riley.

Maybe your girlfriend's right, you posted this dream before. :lol:
But, yes if only as he'd be several cuts above the Fijian. We must both dream on. :D

Mark Riley was better than Nathan Cleary, Andrew Johns and Allan Langer combined.

Ok, objectively, to an impartial observer, maybe he wasn't. But I'm neither objective or impartial :D

One of the great joys of the Roy & Barbara Close days was you never knew who would turn up from down under who nobody had heard of & be very good. Peter White springs to mind as one such player.

But where are today's Londoners like Martin Herdman, Steve Guyett or Colin Fenn?

Just thought, getting back to Mark Riley, we could field a team entirely of scrum halves we've had so many over the years. That's your mission Benny should you wish to accept it, 13 scrum halves starting with:
1. Reg Bowden

I've still not seen any announcements on Cake's two promised assistants.

I know this is the off season, but I think this may well have drifted off-topic. :lol: Still, challenge accepted. And probably failed.

2. Dennis Moran
3. Jarrod Sammut
4. Glen Air
5. Shaun Edwards
6. Josh White
7. Jamie Soward
8. Danny Orr
9. Leo Dynevor
10. Luke Gale
11. Craig Gower
12. Kevin Langer
13. William Barthau

And no mention of Riley. Because he was too good to be contained by any list.

That list does unfortunately show when I started following the club and that, as an old man, I think everything was better in the past. It also reflects when I started getting confused about who was playing scrum-half and who was playing stand-off (and sometimes hooker). I've probably got a few wrong here.

I tried to explain rugby league positions and what each position did to someone I dragged along to a game a few years' ago. Who fed the scrum for us throughout that game? Kieran Dixon. Not the scrum-half like I'd suggested.

I doubt we'll see the likes of some of these players again. Unless someone else takes over the club.
