PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

I like that grandstand. Shades of Sydney Cricket Ground (on a smaller scale, of course)

Nice site. Quite a bit of thought seems to have gone into it.

First impressions from that site are very good and I agree that the ground looks fantastic. Let's hope they can back it up now.

Some of it's really quite intelligent: putting the goalposts as All Souls College, and the "RUGBY LEAGUE INSPIRES" motto. Brilliant stuff!!

Funny that they don't have a moniker too.

After seeing all this I would love for there to be a 'Cambridge Rugby League' club in the Championship now. Wishful thinking.

Great website, looking forward to next season when I can get to see three semi pro RL teams all within reasonable drives. When you look at that list of teams playing in the league and their geographical coverage, it does look pretty impresive -

North Wales, South Wales, Gateshead, Gloucester, Hemel Hempstead, London, Oldham, Oxford and Rochdale.

Can't help thinking Bramley's perineum approach to re-emerging as a pro club did them more harm than good.

There was loads of interest when they relaunched but people saw through the quality of the product they were offering pretty quickly. This level would've been ideal for them but perhaps the chance has passed now.

This isn't a time for recreating the past, and all the expense of trying to run a pro club where there's no interest and others exist anyway. It's about expanding, and it'd be great to see the new clubs expand the junior game in their areas something Bramley were never going to do. Up the Akkies.

Anyway I say bring back Leeds Parish Church.

You might have to be bang up to date and bring in the Beeston Intifadas.

I'm not convinced the Leeds Akkies model is the one to go down unfortunately. They seem to be doing a very good job with masters though, not so much at the younger end of the spectrum.

We have never claimed otherwise to be fair mate. Akkies have never ran junior teams.

Aren't the North Leeds Leopards offering an option in the area now? My geography is a bit sketchy!

Wasn't criticising Akkies so much as Parksider's suggesation that you're the way forward for your junior work.
