    Mate putting both Rugby’s together is a no no. That’s like saying a Scotsman is English or kicking around a round ball is soccer 😁

    I think Union is much bigger overall in the UK, even if it's only really wales where it's the everyman sport, and some weird parts of the borders, but where Rugby league is played, it is everyhting to those towns (e.g. Whitehaven and Workington, St Helens, Wigan and so on) - but the rugby league has always been rooted in the working class - it became professional because the people playing it couldn't really aford to lose the satureday's wage (or that's what I'm told). For my totally non-expert view of the games, league is much quicker more fluid sport, union has more all round challenges, but can be very dull and grinding, especially when it's not being played with international skill.
    Lions? It's a tradition I suppose and seems to be big deal for those involved, and I suppose it's kind of  a bgger deal than the individual unions organising their own summer overseas tours.
    And yes, I'm not sure where/who you hung around with in london, but football is pretty universal across the uk, but then facebook and childhood obeasity appear to more popular tha playing with a soccaball.

    Mate, I should have made it clearer I was talking about the difference of the games over here. Union is really only a minor sport over here that is predominantly played out of the private school system. I love the locals passion for the game when I’ve been in Scotland, Wales, Ireland and France. It’s a good way to break the ice in a local pub even though I’m a League boy. I was surprised when I worked at Royal Grammar school just outside of London how big Union was. I’d always assumed that soccer would be the major sport around London but I never saw one soccer ball.

    Brilliant win, put a smile on my face. 
    Boks were done after 60 mins.
    Freshen the team for the 2nd and 3rd tests and there's a series win for the taking.

    Rugby league is the working mans sport. Rugby Union is for private school boys that can’t tackle. I’ve been involved in rugby league all my life and I don’t get Union, really 2 completely different games. We’ve bought in Australian  rep forwards in Union to league and they’ve been lucky to play to 3rd grade standard.

    I’m hearing you buddy, 18 deg and sitting here with 2 jumpers on and the heater roaring. Can take the heat, it’s the humidity here in summer that’s the killer.

    Today is the first day I feel slightly human again, will be 2 weeks on Wednesday since I tested positive. Honestly it’s floored me, never felt so ill in my life. Leanne who also tested positive has been a genuine life saver these past couple of weeks.
    Started out quite mild but soon got pretty intense and scary, so many symptoms that just cripple you basically. 
    Covid is not to be messed with

    It will be 12-18 months at least before we resume international travel. The gov put out a 4 stage recovery plan yesterday and international travel is in stage 3. They are saying stage 2 won’t kick in until sometime next year. On the bright side it looks like my lockdown period coincides with Derby’s crap period.

    Chip Butty for lunch. Ensuing blue with the missus who is adamant that a chip butty should only be made with a roll. Bread only for me. Who’s right in this argument.

    In my experience of women, she will be right (and won’t deviate) in any argument. Butty looks great, and the garnish too.
