    Hope it works out better than the "Saddle" junction near ASDA in Wigan. They've just spent months and god knows how much money putting in cycle lanes. In all the years using that junction I can't remember seeing a cyclist on there.

    Suggestions for gggrandparent's name

    Thanks for that.Did actually find the baptism of Mary Anne Sharples on Ancestry with father Peter Sharples and mother Jane Pickavance. Didn't have the info on Nancy though. when they did want to marry they went further afield where not known. Rainford not very far though is it.😟 Will carry on looking but as said the Rainford marriage,at the moment, looks the most likely. Thanks to all who've contributed with suggestions and info.

    Suggestions for gggrandparent's name

    Just wondering if they ever did marry. Found (on Ancestry) a baptism of Mary (Ann) Sharples to Peter Sharples and Jane Pickavance. None of family trees on Ancestry, for Peter Sharples, give a date for a marriage,there's just an assumption they were married. Although on the marriage cert between Jane Sharples and William Chadwick she is shown as a widow and fathers name is William Pickavance.

    Coming from Manchester and heading north on M6 is a great improvement with its right turn instead of having to go all the way round the "island"

    Thanks Phyll, did find that but not completely convinced thats the one. Found reference on Ancestry to a marriage between a Jane Pickavance and Peter Sharples. Need to go to library to access Ancestry. Probably need to get cert for above marriage to see if name has been wrongly transcribed

    Suggestions for gggrandparent's name

    With reference to the above query I have found the marriage of Jane Sharples (father William Pickavance) and James Chadwick (father William Chadwick), however I am struggling to find a 1st marriage for Jane Pickavance to Peter Sharples. I am also struggling to find the registration of Sharples children with a mothers maiden name of Pickavance. Any help or suggestions would be welcome.

    its who really wants it?

    What would happen if you went to a match and threw an object which hit a player in the face?

    Just been doing some painting and the mind wanders. Did remember an incident in the second half. Catalan had scored and whist he was lining up the conversion the Catalan players were running back to take up positions for the restart I did notice a catalan player running back carrying a ball. About 10/20 metre mark he threw the ball into the crowd. Couldn't say who the player was though. That's why he wasn't seen on tv. The incident has been referred to the match review panel but I doubt they'll pick it up either.

    Whose them Joe? All your mates backed Saints so the team threw the game? Only whats been reported on social media. Didn't see anything at the game.

    So he shouldn't have scored 23 tries this season.
