The RFL have launched two online surveys to get the views, observations and opinions of all Rugby League participants on the 2012 community game season.

These surveys are a crucial part of the 2012 season review with one open to all Rugby League players - http://www.therfl.co.uk/player_survey and the other open to all, coaches, volunteers, match officials, spectators, parents and administrators - http://www.therfl.co..._players_survey.

RFL Director of Participation David Gent said: “We want feedback on what participants have enjoyed this season, what they think could be improved and any other suggestions which they want to share with us.

“It’s important that we get as many responses as possible so we can progress and tailor our programmes to the needs of participants and ensure that the 2013 season will be even better.

“We are already meeting with leagues, clubs and other key stakeholders across the country as part of the review process and taking on board all feedback both positive and negative as we plan for next season and beyond.

“The surveys are quick and easy to fill in so I would urge everyone to please spare five minutes to have their say and help us to develop our sport.”

As well as questions on the 2012 campaign the survey, which is entitled ‘Let’s Talk Rugby League’ also includes a number of more general Rugby League questions for people involved in the sport to answer.

The results will help the RFL to better understand the requirements and motivations of Rugby League participants and will provide key insights which will be used to improve programmes as well as communication and marketing.

Please take time to do the whichever survey is applicable.

I have just done it. 3 minutes max ........

And how are the RFL to provide the service its many and varied adherrents can make best use of, if we don't take time to let them know:

a) how many adherents they have and roughly where we are
B) what we do and don't use of the service that is already on offer.

Thanks (on behalf of the game!)

Done. Although I will be very surprised if responses actually make a difference!

It's an awful survey, very poorly structured. Even though there is a part supposedly slanted towards spectators it isn't in any way.

I've filled it in but cannot see how anything beneficial or constructive can come out of it.

Poor survey which doesnt really cover many peoples thoughts with whats wrong or how they feel about certain aspects of the game whether it be Amateur or Professional.

An awful survey.
Poorly constructed, illogical in places and, I suspect, the vast majority of supporters will duck out before the end.

It's important to get these 'minor' aspects correct.
This sort of thing, along with spelling and grammatical errors in official press releases and marketing material, only serves to gradually erode public confidence in the sport's governing authority.
