The Damo Bit - 24th March 2010
Posted by southstander on March 24 2010 - 16:02:20


The recent cold spell has left Damo wondering what has happened to the summer rugby that we are supposed to be watching and whether we should try and become the greenest spectator sport in the world.

A sun-loving Damo is here....

Time For Summer Rugby?

As some of you will of noticed Summer rugby has ceased to exist in the first few months of the Superleague this season. Thinking about it Leeds have played in snowy conditions, foggy conditions and certainly winter conditions. The fog for the game contested between St Helens and Hull FC is the worse Iíve seen on TV in my life. That game certainly wasnít played from a fans point of view that night as the whole family struggled to see what was happening on TV.

Itís a good job we donít have any active volcanoes in this country near stadiums because Sky would probably put a rugby league match on with volcanic ashes falling from the sky. Heck I doubt even Hull FC fans would have much old faith if England gets anywhere near the kind of weather you get at Izu Islands in Japan. The volcanic air is so bad there people don masks on their faces from cradle to casket.

It's time we let the Met Office take care of the Superleague fixtures in this country as too many matches are played in such arctic conditions. At least the Met office can predict when the sun is shining so we can get summer rugby a lot more in this country. Gone should be the days when you only buy a burger to keep your hands warm for two minutes.

However, the one thing that would concern me about Met office taking over the fixtures is this obsession on global warming. I bet in the first season in charge theyíd make Catalan and Harlequins always play away from home meaning having to based themselves along the M62 so that they produce less carbon emissions. Heck we could become the greenest sporting community in the world.

Thankfully the summer season is just around the corner. I suppose we just have to grin and bear the first three or so winter months of the long season.

To The Summer.
