They should rename the spooks' organisations anyway.
'Military Intelligence' is the ultimate contradiction in terms.
I'd say it's an oxymoron, but too many oxymorons read these posts and won't know what that means.

I heard that MI6 are currently investigating British chat forums being used by terrorists to drop in coded messages.

Barnesy's looks suspicious....

Where do you bring these content because I'm looking for these content?

I heard that MI6 are looking into terrorist groups leaving coded messages on British forums.

Just saying.

Don't think anyone was suggesting otherwise mate.

Westoe also has a stand on Wood Terrace - which appears to house patients on an outing from the local psychiatric clinic, displaying symptoms of Tourette's syndrome and other disorders which cause them to be abnormally anti-social in a highly abusive manner.
They are so offensive that even Dave Barnes pre-warns opposition teams to ''take no notice of the idiots over there, and don't stand on that side of the field''.

Much as I like Hollow Drift, it isn't always the best playing surface; the parking is problematic and the more sheltered side tends to be opposite the stand.
If a stand is deemed the deal breaker (which I find bizarre if it is), then Mowden, Darlington, Gateshead, Rovers and Sunderland all spring immediately to mind.
As for central location, that should be irrelevant for me.

This idea has been mooted for decades, and I'd like to see it occasionally - but I suspect most club coaches wouldn't be keen on it. They want squad players out training on Tuesdays and Thursdays rather than having an excuse to miss it. (''But I played last night!'') Also, I have no doubt many clubs would field first teamers in such games. That's one good thing about 2nd teams playing at the same time as their 1sts on Saturdays - it stops clubs chucking a few ringers in.

Well Sale's owner has blocked the interest Steve Diamond allegedly had in signing them.

Do Durham RFU not have an obligation to, or at least a policy of, spreading the various finals around the clubs? It seems that Hollow Drift is hosting just about everything this season.

If this does actually go ahead it will be fascinating!
Where do they get their refs from? What happens to the sides that would've been promoted and relegated - is the league ring-fenced? If so, it's a moderately high standard of Rugby now, but will good players want to continue to play in a closed-shop league?
Will the players be willing to play without RFU insurance? If insurance is to be sought independently, from whom? Will it cost individuals?
Who disciplines red carded players?
Will RFU youth coaches be forced to boycott the clubs?
Will they form their own Cup competitions, as they will no longer qualify for the Lancashire Cups?
Have they realised the full implications? I've thrown a few points out there off the top of my head, but there will be many more.

You can't judge a side by a one-off cup final result, anyone who understands sport knows that.

Congratulations to Fairplay, who is a gentleman and true to his user name, and everyone at Consett on an impressive rise in standards across every aspect of the club, not just the first team results.
The trick now is to maintain it and I wish you all the best in doing so.

Any thoughts on how they'll fare in DN2?
