As regards parcipitation numbers Rugby League is light years ahead of the horsey and yachting set. Rugby League does far more for working class commuities than the horsey and yachting set. Rugby League puts far more into communties than it takes out. I repeat that funding at grassroots level for Rugby League should be higher than it is.

 

Guess again (figures for 2011-2012)...
 
Participation rate for equestrianism 0.77%    331,000
Participation rate for Rugby League 0.12%   51,100
 
More importantly, from a Sport England point of view, you can get Olympic medals for Equestrian events, not for RL.

It's UK Sport not Sport England funding that is entirely determined by likelihood of Olympic success.

Just shows apples and pears don't compare. Buggering about on a horse hardly compares to any team sport let alone a full contact sport like league
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!

The thing is with a lot of sports you can do them or your own and be counted as a participant, cycling, athletics (running), equestriamism (horse riding), whereas for team sports you obviously need more people so to compare a solo sport to a team sport is a waste of time.
