No sorry. I do know that the Welsh Assembly have been v supportive of WRL, but as to promotional stuff I don't know.

 

Reassuring response from the RLWC team via facebook:

 

"As the host city of our opening ceremony there will be plenty of activity in Cardiff closer to the start of the tournament. Look out for updates on our Facebook page and Twitter feed (@rlwc2013)."

 

Didn't state exactly what but it looks like something will definitely happen.

Good to hear.

As I said I know that WAG have supported WRL in regard to the RLWC, but didn't know too much about this specific aspect.

Which stand do the TV cameras at Wrexham point? Looking at getting tickets in front of the cameras for the games there.

North Wales Crusaders head coach Clive Griffiths was delighted with the 54-10 success over Oxford and, in particular, how his side rode the storm when it came. A mix of errors and penalties put Crusaders on the back foot at times in the first half, with a narrow 18-10 lead heading in at the break, but another ruthless second half showing kept their 100-per-cent record intact.“I’m pleased as it’s an emphatic win in the end”, Griffiths said. “But I’ve got to give credit to Oxford as they made it hard for us.“They’ve only been going this year – and they’re similar to ourselves last year – but they’ve got a lot of togetherness there, they keep going and they made us work for the win.“It certainly wasn’t as easy as the scoreline suggests, although that was mainly down to us being the architects of our own downfall in the first half.“We were making errors and then kept on giving away penalties on the back of that, so we let them off the hook a little bit.“We’ve nilled another team in the second half and that’s very pleasing. The longer the game went on the stronger we became, and once again our fitness levels came through in the second half.“The main thing is that we had a good start and a good finish – and that invariably wins you games.”Next up is the tough trip to London Skolars for Griffiths’ men and the former Wales coach is fully aware of the task ahead.“We know what we’ve got to do now” he said. “We’ve got to get five points out of the next two games and we’ll be giving it our all to do that.“It’s going to come down to the South Wales game if we win or get a point from Friday. It’s going to be a massive game; North versus South for a massive prize.“We’re in a good position and all our concentration is now on Friday night’s game.” -

The Cameras are usualy situated at the Mold Road Stand so the Yale Stand will be the best place to sit to be on the TV.

 

Only Tickets for the Mold Road Stand appear to be on sale at the moment for the Wales v USA game though

Thanks for that. Is there a camera gantry in the Yale Stand too?

 

Tickets are available in the other two stands for the Wales vs USA game; they've shaded in the wrong boxes though. Highlight the grey upper tier areas and you'll see what I mean. I have informed the ticketing office but they have done nothing about it yet.

North Wales Crusaders Wheelchair RL team have now completed their first season.
 
So lets just go over some of the things they have achieved. Since March this year they have:

Found a home to play,
Found some funding to get things started
Put together a coaching and management team.
Found players (most new to the game)
Started training, entered a national league.
Played with commitment, pride and determination.
Found they could mix it with the best of them!
Sent 6 players to the Rugby League Wheelchair World Cup.
Found stardom with Sky sports, ITV Wales, and Heart Radio.
Introduced wheelchair sport to approximately 400+ school children.
Started a new Disability sports charity.
Proved that this club is about what you can do not what you can't do.

Of course acknowledgement goes to Matt Pritchard, WRL, Sport Wales, Disability Sport Wales, PACT and the Welsh Wheelchair RL squad all have played an important role.

However for our players and coaching staff...... take a bow all of you!
Dali Credu (keep believing)

Scotland are playing PNG in a warm up at Fev. Probably linked to a sponsorship deal for the Scots ?

I see a number of Cardiff buses are now carrying posters regarding the World Cup, called in Smith's not a RL journal to be bought, and only one RL book on sale, a certain half back who is now coaching at Featherstone or Cas.

All aboard for Rugby League World Cup 2013!

 

The RLWC2013 branded van will visit over 70 locations across the country borough in the lead up to the tournament. It provides a very popular service to those areas of the county borough which are not within easy reach of a branch library.

The famous Glyndwr University Racecourse Ground will host two games as part of the RLWC 2013. In the first match, Wales will take on Group D rivals USA on Sunday November 3rd (KO 2pm). The Racecourse Ground will also host the mouth-watering quarter final match between the winners of Group A and Group D on Saturday November 16th (KO 1PM).

Cllr Neil Rogers, Leader of Wrexham Council said: “This is a great way for us to highlight the fact that Wrexham is hosting two matches at this huge sporting event. This van will be out and about in communities across the county borough and provides the RLWC2013 with a strong visual presence here in Wrexham.

“RLWC2013 is just around the corner and there has been a lot of interest in tickets for both matches.”

Tickets for both games at The Racecourse are available online at www.rlwc2013.com/tickets, in person at the Glyndwr University box-office or by calling the Rugby League World Cup ticket hotline on 0844 847 2013.

There’s a great double ticket offer available which means you can be at both matches in Wrexham for as little as £15.

Buy a ticket for the Wales v USA game and get your quarter final ticket for half price. It’s a fantastic offer to be to witness world class sport.

North Wales Crusaders head coach Clive Griffiths predicts an extremely tough game when his side face London Skolars on a small pictch on Friday night (6.30pm kick-off). It is the first time that Crusaders have taken part in the Friday Night Lights fixture, which is part of the Challenge Cup weekend in the capital, with the final taking place at Wembley Stadium at 3pm on Saturday, and Griffiths’ men head in to the clash in good form and with automatic promotion in sight.“I’m not taking anything for granted with this game”, Griffiths said. “With the travel and the pitch – which is the smallest in the league – we know it’s going to be a tough place to go to.“They know their own patch and with us beating them in the final, and them now wanting revenge, we know it’s going to be a difficult one.“But we’re aiming to go down there and get the win, and if we do that, it’ll make our job against Scorpions a lot easier on the last game of the season.“We want to win all of our games, but we know that we’ve got to aim to get at least four points on the board from the remaining two games.“We could have only dreamed of being in this position when we first started out as a club.“It’s all in our own hands. There’s still a lot of water to go under the bridge yet, but we know exactly what we’ve got to do.”A familiar face to Crusaders fans on Friday night will be former Super League player and recent Skolars recruit, Gareth Raynor – and Griffiths is fully aware of the threat that he and his team mates at Skolars can pose.“I’m always confident and that’s the case going into this game, but they’ve got some dangerous players in their side”, he said.“Gareth Raynor was a very good player in his day, although I haven’t seen him play for a while. But he’s obviously going to bring a wealth of experience to the side.“It’s similar to us signing Stuart Reardon in some respects; both players have played at the highest level and their experience at this level is going to bring a lot to any side.”North Wales picked up a few knocks in the 54-10 win over Oxford, and although all will have to be assessed in training, Griffiths feels that there won’t be any problems.“We’ll check on the injuries in training”, he said. “Jamie Clarke, Andy Moulsdale and Gary Middlehurst all picked up little knocks last Sunday and will have to be checked.“None of them were serious so I’m hoping that they will all be fine for the game on Friday night.” - See more at: http://www.mission20...h.qVEkkZ3v.dpuf

The Rugby League World Cup 2013 is coming to a community near you!

 

A specially-branded RLWC2013 van will be making its way across Wrexham in the lead up to the town hosting two matches at this autumn’s tournament.

Wrexham’s mobile library has been given a RLWC2013 makeover to help promote first major global sporting event to be held on British soil since the Olympics.

The RLWC2013 branded van will visit over 70 locations across the country borough in the lead up to the tournament. It provides a very popular service to those areas of the county borough which are not within easy reach of a branch library.

The North Wales Conference final was played last night at Colwyn Bay Rugby Club between Conwy Celts and Flintshire Falcons. A great game to watch with scores even at 30 - 30 with 15 minutes left to play. Eventually the Celts team upped the tempo and the pressure and the final score was 50 - 30 to the Conwy Celts.  A fantastic game with two fully committed teams with some excellent rugby on display.  Well done to both teams and congratulations to Conwy Celts on their win.
