120 years old today.

Happy 120th Rugby League Party! Party! Party!

and what better way to celebrate than a masterclass in how to play from the Rhino's beating HKR 50-0 for the highest ever win margin, 5 tries from Tom Briscoe for a second record, nilling fierce rivals, and seeing three legends of the game hang up their boots with no fewer than 1300 club appearances between them.

OK, I admit I tune out when the sports news comes on the radio ... but did I hear that the Scottish Rugby Coach is Fearne Cotton?

Cue gratuitous sexy photos ...

Is it bad that I realise this must be a leg pull but don't know why?

Or maybe it's not.

After all, if Hedy Lamarr could invent the frequency-hopping spread-spectrum technology that underlies wi-fi and Bluetooth there's no reason Fearne Cotton couldn't be Scottish Rugby Coach ... is there?

I wish I could say I felt I ought to know more about sport but ... Ooh! Squirrel!!

Googled it. Apparently it's "Vern Cotter".


Not quite as good looking IMHO.

I can hardly wait. Todays game I predict will be a classic.  Smiley Smiley Both sides deserve to win but I must say I hope it's Wigan.

Came home to me last Thursday, the seasons almost over.  Cry Only the Tests in November and then nothing until next year.  Sad Sad
