Capital's the key to a stellar year for Wood

Was this just in the online edition or did it appear in the paper also?

For once I don't think Wood is doing much in the way of spin. I've read so many reports from different places about the increase in participation in RL at schools/student/amateur level that I am sure the playing side is pretty healthy in the capital. I hope the growth continues. However, the struggle very much seems to be about getting bums on seats no matter which level the sport is played at, and I don't think rugby league has gotten that one sussed yet.

It was in the paper - very good spot as well. About 3/4 page with a pic of Leeds lifting the trophy. Nice surprise on the tube today.
