Talking Points Episode 29

Talking Points returns and this week Dave and Adrian give their thoughts on the weekend just gone including the Carnegie Challenge Cup Quarter Finals.

Listen out for our special audio highlights from the local derby involving Warrington and Wigan.

The boys also look ahead to this weekend's games.

We recorded the show before Tuesday's Super League Licence announcement but rest assured we'll be discussing the ramifications next week!

To give any feedback good or bad, please tweet Dave @DParkyRL on Twitter or comment on the Loverugbyleague.com forum or Facebook pages.

Talking Points Episode 28

Dave Parkinson and Adrian Jackson return to chat over the first domestic cup final of the professional season, look back on all the results from Championship One, NRL  and Super League and discuss the forthcoming fixtures this weekend. The boys are joined by Warrington Wolves prop forward star Paul Wood to chat about being a Warrington player living in Wigan, try scoring and maybe even switching nationalites ahead of the 2013 World Cup!

Paul also took time out to answer your questions and we always like to liven things up for our guests so the more content and questions we can put to them and us, the better!

As always we appreciate your comments via the Loverugbyleague.com forum, facebook page or tweet Dave directly: @DParkyRL.

In the meantime, sit back, enjoy, and listen to Talking Points.

Talking Points - Episode 27

Ahead of the big Northern Rail Cup Final, the boys were joined by Leigh player John Duffy and Sky Sports Terry O'Connor gave his thoughts.

Dave and Adrian also did their usual round-up of results and fixtures across the Northern Hemisphere while also touching base with some of the games in the NRL and of course the deciding State of Origin game.

We test John Duffy's tipping skills, ask him about previous Finals he's played in and John reveals he once spent an entire pre-season with one of the all time greats of the game. We also asked several of your questions through Fan Points. Once again our usual studio was not big enough and we had to vacate to another.

Remember we like to hear your thoughts about the game and the show, you can tell us what you think through the Loverugbyleague.com forum, through the site facebook page or communicate directly with Dave on twitter: @DParkyRL.

Over the next couple of weeks we've got things planned. There will be a Northern Rail Final special including game highlights and hopefully interviews and Adrian is working on a Super League guest for Episode 28 when hopefully we will welcome Warrington Wolves prop Paul Wood.

In the meantime, enjoy!

Talking Points Episode 26

Dave and Adrian return for more topical chat and go through the happenings in the NRL and Europe.

We hear from Widnes wing Paddy Flynn on his side's closer-than-close victory over Hunslet Hawks, Leigh Centurions skipper Stuart Donlan joins us to tell of his upcoming three month testimonial from the RFL and Paul Cullen tells us all about the perils and pitfalls of trying to recruit overseas players in the current marketplace.

Please note that our recording was made before several of the news stories this week broke so there is no mention of Nigel Wright leaving Barrow or bans for the Crusaders seven, or even Chris Hill's move from Leigh to Warrington.

We are trying to get a topical guest on the show next week and a future episode will hopefully bring to life the Northern Rail Cup Final.

We've still got several things planned to keep the show ahead of the competition but ultimately we hope you enjoy listening.

If you would like to have your say, please give your opinion on the loverugbyleague facebook page or forum or tweet Dave on twitter: @DParkyRL.

Or if you feel you can contribute, please get in touch, tell us how you think Halifax and Leigh are travelling, tell us all about Wigan's busy week, have Hull Kingston Rovers finally turned the corner?

John also answers your questions.

We hope to confirm Wales legend Jim Mills as a future guest and also hope to feature Warrington prop Paul Wood in a future episode. Remember we like your involvement and you can leave messages on the loverugbyleague.com forum, on our facebook page, or contact Dave directly on Twitter - @DParkyRL.

In the meantime, sit back, enjoy and listen to Talking Points.
