Yes, but they are of Pakistani ethnicity, they are British by nationality.


...Which makes 'them' as British as you or I.

So when they go to watch england v pakistan at cricket, they'll be draping themselves in the union jack as usual will they ? The fact is that many (not all) asian kids don't consider themselves british first and foremost, in the same way that many english born, second generation scots don't consider themselves english when it comes to aligning themselves with regard to nationality. It's one of life's facts, and I'm sure many second generation poms feel the same in australia (which also rubs up the oz populace big time I understand). It's also a fact that they are lucky enough to live in a country where they have the choice to be who they want to be.

And we are equally lucky to have been born here too, aren't we?

I am proud to be ENGLISH (see, my xenophobia even extends to the jocks despite being partly of scots origin) - and yes I consider myself very lucky to have been born here - sometimes wish I'd been born in wigan or st helens though. :rolleyes:

I thought this thread was about generating marketing ideas. Instead seems to have degenerated into the old pointless discussion about race/colour. Asian people are here to stay whether you like or not, whether you agree with how they live or not and as they are not interested generally in rugby, it seems an even more pointless debate.

Yes the club have tried and it is unlikely that Dewsbury or any other RL club will ever have a large Asian support. Advertising is about targeting people who may buy your product not wasting time and money on people who won't.
