We have had a few of those over the years ! LOL

Stoatgobblers suggestion` Surely the Ealing Broadways.` I am not sure any team would want to be associated with the  Ealing Broadway .

Nearly 250 crimes were reported in the Ealing Broadwayarea in August 2017 - around eight each day. The road most affected bycrime in entire borough is The Broadway, particularly outside the station.Ouch


Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

You can have deviations up until the National Leagues. Richmond didn't use 13 while they were climbing back up until they had to use it when they were promoted.

More info that I wasn't aware of (not that this is any sort of phenomenon!), and still these "rules" seem rather ridiculous.

Long-standing bugbear of mine, but you can't convince most Brits that they may just possibly be wrong when it comes to 'our' language...

But that doesn't make it wrong.  That is simply due to the evolutionary nature of language generally, and English in particular.

So it is the case that (today), -ize is American English, and that -ise is British English, and -oyse is West Country English.

Am I right in thinking that Bristol use A-O as the team reads on the page (ie A=15, G=9, H=1, O=8) whereas Leicester use the letters that equate to the numbers (the famous ABC club, through to O at full back)?
 
yep
 
Bristol (proper way)
a = 15, b = 14 etc
 
Leicester
a = 1, b = 2 etc
 
this is why events unnerve me

I believe that the conformity for numbers was to make it easier for refs to call out players in a game:

Blue 6, Red 14 etc
Rucks and mauls may bust my balls, but whips and chains excite me!!

Good point Cannon. Could you imagine trying to ref an international game against Greece?

Not so sure.

Blue M, Red B ??

As opposed to Blue Seventeen, Red Twenty-two.

Its just that we become used to certain calls;

"Hands Away 7"
"Come here 4"
"Another step 10"
"Be quiet 9"

etc, etc,
