    warrington v Wigan

    In this case I think the ref holds the defense at the original 10 yard mark. So in effect all the player is doing is reducing the distance between the teams,giving the defense an advantage.Agree though theres lots that needs to be cleaned up in the play the ball. Unfortunately Cummings wasnt refereeing on the night.

    One of them only had himself to blame
  3. If you google gps and sport they seem to have been around since about 2003
  4. Rugby league players have them as well.(Dont know about footballers).They are GPS trackers so their movements about the pitch can be recorded.Ever wonder how they know how far or how many meters a player has run?
  5. Thank goodness for that https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/17470455.sky-sports-rugby-league-commentator-eddie-hemmings-to-hang-up-microphone/?ref=mr&lp=6
  6. Don't need,I know who my kids are.😀 added 2 minutes later Now you mention it, those names do ring a bell.
  7. Thomas and Margery were my 4x grandparents.Thats the farthest I've got back so far. I'm on the Anders side.
  8. Saints got out of jail.Hicks dropped a huge spherical object near the end. Leeds looked to be going over in corner when Hicks pulled them back for a knock on against them after claiming he misheard touch judge. Replay clearly showed Saints knock on. Other than that an entertaining match. Agree about Grace,not first time he's been caught out of position.
  9. Thanks for all the work done on the above. I can only apologise for not supplying all the info I had. My original problem was finding a birth cert for John Edward Jones and then a marriage cert for his parents,which I will now be able to get. I did have the 1911 census info. but not the others. Could I ask where did you find the directory information about Robert in 1894? Thanks once again.
  10. Sorry about that.Realised I should have said why I was sure about the birth date.
  11. Should have mentioned that in 1898,at time of John Edwards marriage to Eliza Jane Lloyd , Robert Jones was deceased. The reason I am confident about John Edward Jones birthday is because a family diary which recently came into the wife's possesion. According to an inscription in the front it was originally given to Eliza(beth)Jane Lloyd who then passed it on to her daughter (another inscription in front), Annie Jones , the wife's paternal grandmother. The diary contains birth dates of family members. Checking the birth certificates I already have they all correspond to those given in the diary. So I have no reason to disbelieve that given for John Edward Jones.
  12. ...if possible please. A very common name though. I am trying to trace my wife's great great grandfather, John Edward Jones. I believe he was born on the 28 Feb 1880 in Liverpool. His father was Robert Jones who was born in Derbyshire and his mother Mary (maiden name unknown). In the 1881 and 1891 census his father (Robert) was a police constable and at the time of John's marriage he was deceased.Occupation given as policeman. From the 1881 & 1891 census John Edward was born in Liverpool. I have had no luck on the LDS site trying to trace John due to the common nature of the name. If anyone can help I would most grateful,otherwise it will have to go on the back burner for a while.
