Some of the other threads on here include
Regions or Towns
Is it my fault?
Where is the game heading?
Here's a radical solution
Why not combine
Castleford, Featherstone and Wakefield and call them Calder
Widnes and Warrington and call them Cheshire
Hull F C and Hull KR and call them Hull
Barrow, Whitehaven and Workington and call the Cumbria
Sheffield and Doncaster and call them South Yorkshire
Oldham, Salford, Rochdale and Swinton and call them Manchester
Then a few stand alone clubs with big catchment areas
London, Leeds, Paris, Bradford, Wigan and St Helen's.
Mmmm Now where did I put that steel helmet?

for novelty.

 

 

 

Not a whinge in sight!
