Maybe slightly off topic but I gave up worrying about the coverage years ago. Far more important is that someone like Wayne Rooney tweets the positives of our game to 5 million people than an article in the back of a paper which most people dont buy

I agree that Twitter is a very important area for our game, and I must say that I think Rugby league has embraced this form of social media very well - see Leeds' initiative with the Twitter names earlier this year - extremely innovative, despite everyone claiming that RL is useless at marketing.

Interestingly, the RL Journo's accounts on Twitter are often even more negative than in the newspapers!

clearly not in all editions John, and it's hardly Hadfield's fault. His report in today's Indy was very good.


Interesting thing is, the edition I read it in was the South East whereas quite often the South don't get these reports. (I was in a hotel in Ashford in Kent)

Dave Hadfield's report was good, I agree. My point about him and others is that we should not expect them to be Red Hall cheerleaders but honest reporters and analysts , even though from time to time we might not like what they say
