they certainly have the best grounds.

The best three RL grounds are in Yorkshire (one West, one East and one South).

But administrative areas is exactly what counties are. If we're going to start claiming, then we (the West Riding of Yorkshire) will have Saddleworth, the Trough of Bowland and Sedberg back for starters.

nope
there are other boundaries-political. economic, cultural and so on

adminsitratively warrington is in cheshire, but not necessaily in other senses.
classic example is humberside. Administrtivly it no longer exists, but economically, strategically and geographiocally it does.
what do the areas you mentioned-Sedbergh is even in cumbria, feel hat they are? I'd take a wild gues and say they feel they are from yorkshire.

The thing what Lancashire clubs have going for them is their grounds and infrastructures. Fingers crossed that Saints and Salford deliver new venues by 2012 so along with Wigan, Wire, Chemics and throw in Leigh the facilities look impressive. The potential there exists for those clubs to really grow their business and game. Grounds used around the clock raising revenue and community interest.

Administratively Cheshire doesn't exist at all, there's West Cheshire & Chester, East Cheshire, Halton and Warrington with no county council. Likewise Merseyside doesn't exist administratively it is separate boroughs one of which is St Helens

How on Earth are you including Leigh in Lancashire but not Widnes? Makes no logic whatsoever either they're both Lancashire or neither is.

That's before we get onto the facts that if Yorkshire exists then Barrow is in Lancashire making it: Yorkshire 7, Lancashire 3, France 1

for gawd sake, these arguments over counties will just go on and on (says a proud Leyther born in Leigh, Lancashire)

Lets just say this or other side of the pennines, and as far as I know (not much ok) all the leagues have more on the Yorkshire side and have done for years

Couldn't bring myself to say left and right side wink.gif

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer
