Forty20 NOT LIVE; 26th May 2020
After a packed Bank Holiday weekend of repeats of Rugby League on the telly, we spend no time talking about the controversial ending to Leeds Rhinos vs. Bradford Bulls, but do talk about the Greg Inglis' move to Warrington, and what impact the "Future Immortal" will have in Super League coming out of retirement.
There's Gordon Strachan's comments on Scottish Football, and how they mirror our situation, plus the return of the NRL and much more for John Davidson and an on-debut Tom Alderson to discuss.
From the Archives: The first ever Super League Review on Radio Yorkshire (17th March 2014)
We're going back to the start now with the very first Monday night show on Radio Yorkshire. The station launched in March 2014, and, despite almost not making it to air before the launch, what would morph into RLonRY, Proper Rugby League and now Forty20 LIVE made it's debut as Super League Review.
Our guest on the first show: Phil Caplan. Little did we know that the band was almost together from day one...
Forty20 NOT LIVE: 18th May 2020 with Faye Gaskin and Danika Priim
A pair of key workers, and England Rugby League internationals, joined us this week as we remain without any new action to watch.
St. Helens halfback Faye Gaskin joins regular panellist Danika Priim to keep Phil and Richard in check as we discuss life in lockdown for two of the stars of Women's Super League, how covid-19 will effect the women's game going forward ahead of the World Cup in 2021 and how the season can start, and in what form.
Plus, there's tales from their touring days, TikTok, the lack of McDonald's at the moment and much more besides.
From the Archives: RLonRY with special guest Ikram Butt from June 2015
The archive machine drops us off five years ago to a Monday afternoon at our studio looking over Elland Road, and joining us to talk his career, and Schoey's appointment with the British Asian Rugby Association was former Leeds, Featherstone and England winger Ikram Butt. A fun hour of stories to keep you entertained.
From the Archives: RLonRY 2016 Season Review
While the videotape containing the 2020 Rugby League season is still on pause, and likely ruining it completely, we're back into the archives for a look back to the 2016 season as it sounded on Radio Yorkshire.
It was the year in which Denny Solomona scored a load of tries before disappearing into retirement, Wigan were crowned Champions, while Warrington had to settle for the League Leaders Shield, Hull FC won at Wembley for the first time, while their neighbours said goodbye to Super League in the most dramatic of fashions, Leeds Rhinos gave us their first glimpses of crisis and Tom Johnstone scored "that" try...
Forty20 NOT LIVE: 4th May 2020
We're back again and managed to get a connection through to the West of the Pennines, where you'll find the likes of Wigan, Widnes and Toronto, as well as this week's guest Paul Bennett, of editing League Weekly fame, to talk all the non-action in Rugby League over the past seven days.
There's £16m to spend, as long as we can pay it back, but how much will be going to top up players who have taken a pay cut recently? That, plus, will there be any crowds at matches for the rest of 2020, including a Grand Final behind closed doors?
We also say goodbye to Nigel Wood, or do we?

Pure and simple the vision and awareness of this podcast is outstanding, this person here says it’s the rugby league podcast of choice
Good but could be better
While the content is usually very good, especially when they are all there, too often the sound quality is very poor, and on plenty of occasions you just can’t hear what RSW is saying, with Phil not much better - but if you turn up to full volume you then get deafened by one of Garry’s many outbursts of ‘Boy oh boy!’ etc.
Been listening since radio Yorkshire days and it’s still the best rugby league podcast out there, brilliant team when all together I’m a big fan of mark wilson, great podcast guys!
