It's £12 million down on last time. The money gets used to provide development officers in many areas of the country. The money is "earned" by the number of adults playing the game once per week and the numbers have apparently dropped from 82,000 down to 44,000 that's why the money has gone down and some development officer jobs cut.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

thats a massive drop in playing numbers I would have expected a huge number of clubs dropping out of leagues with a fall of 38000

So where is the drop coming from. Is it schools to blame by not promoting more??

The numbers are for all forms of rugby league like tag, over 35's, womens, etc, as well as the 13 a side game and leagues.

The numbers are based on the results of the "Active People Survey", which calculates participation based on a sample questionnaire of the public. It works better for some sports than others, particularly those with an even geographical spread - given that fact, general consensus is that it isn't a very good indicator of real participation in rugby league. Nevertheless, it is the measure that is used. "Real" participation in rugby league seems to be up, and the shift in funding to 14-25 yr olds, rather than 16+ will have benefits, I'm sure.

Rugby league's drop is comparable to that experienced by RU and cricket. £4.25m pa is still a pretty good result considering.

Robmac - I think Marsh Hornets have experienced first hand the benefits to "how they waste this money" over the past four years of funding.

disques vogue

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.

DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.

Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.

I think a perceived drop may have come from a mistake in the survey, there was talk that the makers of the survey realised a lot of people who answered that they played rugby union in a 'league' were put down as playing rugby league. This was noticed when large numbers were recorded for large ru counties with no/ little rl clubs. That being said - it's still a great deal of money when compared to ru as they only got £20m
