Talking Points Episode 20

Dave and Adrian were joined by not one but TWO guests this week as former England hooker and current Leigh Assistant Coach Paul Rowley dropped in and was joined by BARLA Press Officer and Open Age Chair Steve Manning.

Things discussed included the NRL, Queensland, the Amateur games big weekend, Co-operative Championships, the Carnegie Challenge Cup and Paul answered questions from fans.
