    Players have such things as last minute fitness tests. You carry on believing what you want to Hort but it does not make it right.

    You just keep persisting with these same things over and over again Hort. Being dropped means that you have not been selected but you are fully fit to play. You also have to be a regular i.e. that you usually play. You might be dropped because you are out of form for example. Being rested due to not being fully fit is a means of enabling the payer to sufficiently recover to a higher level of fitness by not playing. Playing may exacerbate the injury further or there may be a higher chance of getting further injuries in a heavy contact sport like Rugby. You can also be rested in the less important games due to a very long and congested fixture list. This often happens in Football i.e. your top striker may not be played during a cup game against lesser opposition as you want him to be full rested and fit for the big top of the table clash at the weekend. This happens all the time and has done so for years.

    Does not look like it Frank....sadly.
  9. It is much older than most people suspect and this monument has stood proudly on the Junction of St Helens Linkway and A58 for a number of years now. ‘The Miner,’ also known as the Anderton Mining Monument, was commissioned from the sculptor Arthur Fleischman by Lord Robens, Chairman of the National Coal Board, in 1964. The sculpture was intended for Anderton House then being built in Lowton, Lancashire, as the headquarters of the North Western Division of the National Coal Board. It marked the invention of the Anderton Shearer Loader, a cutter loader machine which revolutionised the industry in the 1950s. The shearer loader was first used in 1952 at the Rushy Park seam at Ravenhead Colliery in St Helens. It was then used at Cronton Colliery in St Helens and Golborne Colliery, Leigh, Lancashire and was soon being used throughout the world. added 3 minutes later The statue is sculpted in a heroic and monumental manner, depicting a realistic bronze bust of a miner’s head, shoulders and raised arms holding a large lump of coal above head height. The miner wears a mining helmet with attached light, and his physical strength is shown by the muscles of his unclothed body. The bronze bust is set on a column divided into two equal parts by three circular discs. The upper part is formed by a steel cutting drum; the lower part is formed by a bronze-coloured spiral screw of fibreglass. The statue now stands on a high, square pedestal formed of railway sleepers standing on a railway sleeper plinth*, which is a later C20 addition. The monument is Grade II Listed

    Sorry I missed it this year as it seems bigger and better than ever.! The old fella will be gutted that he missed the 25pdr as he was on them when in the Royal Artillery. Love them truck shots as well.
