Wembley 2010 Previews - How Time Flies
Posted by southstander on August 25 2010 - 14:38:23

11 Years On
It's Wembley week!

We've asked a number of old timers, past contributors, and messageboard regulars to preview saturdays massive sell out Wembley final against the Warrington Wolves. We'll be bringing you these previews throughout the week culminating in the usual preview on friday morning.

This installment is from 'LS16_Rhino'. Don't forget to keeping checking back for more previews all week.

Read the preview here....

1999 – Jarvis Cocker was singing about meeting up by the fountain down the road, mobile phones came with monochrome screens, Bobbyjo won the National at 10-1, Jill Dando was shot, Star Wars 1, The Phantom Menace was the highest grossing film and the year the Leeds Rhino last won the much coveted Challenge Cup.

My youngest has just got her GCSE results this week, in 1999 she was starting primary school. The last 11 years seem to have flown by and we have seen many a player come and go in the Headingley changing room. Great Leeds legends have retired in the likes of Barrie Mac and new legends have been created in Kevin Sinfield and Danny McGuire, two players who will definitely making an appearance under that now famous London arch on Saturday afternoon.

Though the last decade seems to have flown by, 11 years is still a long time by anyone’s standards and even though the faces that will be wearing the famous those Blue & Amber shirts have changed and those iconic twin towers are now long gone we’ll still have the same feeling we did back in 1999.

Anxiety, excitement, apprehension and nervousness all rolled into one. The feeling like something special is just about to happen – Christmas eve as a child, the missus going into labour, the night before your dream holiday. Just thinking about it now has drained the blood from my fingers and added a couple of extra beats to my heart.

So go on lads… do us proud, do your best and make it your year, as we will be there with you, in every bone-crunching tackle, with every honed pass, in every footstep to that final whistle.

Be proud, be passionate, be Leeds.
