  1. Oh FFS almost the very first words out of Channel 4 at pitch side were “for those new to Rugby League”, then they keep hammering it home , the sport has been around since 1895, nobody is left alive who remembers that event! The sport exists, has existed well over 100 years! Give it a bloody rest! The rules are simple enough, compared to the other code much easier to follow. Stop hammering the for those new to Rugby League, it’s demeaning, insulting, and panders to the other code. Let it speak for itself!
