A plumber did a job for me a good number of years ago. He told me he followed wakey in the 60's and if they lost he used to go home and cry! His name - John Burke. I didn't ridicule him- as a young kid I think I might have shed tear once or twice!

Haha exactly. I knew John A lot of years ago and witnessed his temper when he decided to sort out a mouthy workmate.
My point for OP is that your not alone mate, we all hurt but only till the next match. It's worse when we lose like we did the other night, in the last match of the season! :lol:

I used to be like the OP - a bad result or a crap performance would wind me up for days - then a sense of hopeful optimism would start to creep in as the next game approached... bit of a rollercoaster. I'm a bit more circumspect these days - I try to enjoy the game one way or the other, then get on with real life until the next one - it's much less stressful.

Also did some plumbing for us back in the '70's...my bro was only talking about it at the match on Thursday how we came home from school to find him working away in the bathroom and we were both gobsmacked, unlike our parents who didn't have a clue who he was :roll:

Pardon my ignorance but I don't have a clue either.

It is "Fifita" not "Fafita"

If you don't know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" I might get annoyed.

John Burke was a hard, old fashioned prop forward, in the days of proper contested scrums. He signed for wakefield at the same time more or less as Bill Ashurst.
All I can say is, he wouldn't be out of place now and with todays fitness regimes he would be awsome.
