I've just received an email from the RFL saying that the first time I go to Riley's to watch a match I will also get free membership to Riley's a free pint and two hours free snooker or pool. This offer is open to RFL members. Does that only mean Nigel, Brian and Ralph can take advantage of it?

Think it just means members of their mailing list

How do you prove that to Riley's? The link I posted is a direct link from the e mail sent out by the RFL.

You print out the leaflet basically.

 

They are offering all sorts of free memberships at the moment, but this is quite a good deal.

No Premier Sports at their club in Stevenage, as I discovered last night.

Have you let them know that this shouldn't be the case?

Incredibly packed car park (which really needs resurfacing, it's worse than the one at Hemel!) but 3 people in!

Email sent to various addresses at RFL and Rileys. Got a response from David Gent saying he would look into it.

We went to the one in Newport on Sunday to try and catch the PNG v France game before we set off home and they didn't have Premier Sports either.

I know this is probably a disgrace considering we have no Title Sponsor, but the RFL have joined up with Riley's to have hubs where they will show live games on their screens:

 

http://www.rlwc2013....ubs-launched-in

 

I'm hopeful that they will do this in Edinburgh, as whilst I have Premier it will be nice to watch a couple of the games in pubs which can be tough at times up here.

 

Good stuff if done properly.

What a strange photo on that link!

 

And it seems there aren't any in Yorkshire except Hull. Nevermind. Fingers crossed it works.

Just to add something here, recently I've been dealing with a local social club about screening some rugby on their TV's over football. Their response surprised me, anyway.

Apparently the RFU subsidise their Sky Sports package on the proviso that Union must take precedence over any other sports if there's a clash.

Wonder if the RFL have tried/could try this. All due respect to Rileys I don't think I would particularly want to go to my local one. Calling it a dive would be kind.

Jamie: Oh, aye, Fatty, wee Spiderman in his ###### pyjamas, what a ###### idea. From now on it's a proper fight; It's a pomp-fight, Motherwell rules. And Tom is gonna get a pint glass in his ###### eye and a pool cue up his ###### and another pool cue in his other ###### eye.
Malcolm Tucker: Geoff Holhurst?
Jamie: What, Mister Baby New Potato-Head? ###### off.

The RFL do subsidise the Sky Sports package for amateur rugby league clubs.

 

At our clubhouse (which we share with the local resident's association), it's cheaper to get Sky Sports 1-4 than it was for them to just get SS 1-2 before we moved in.

 

I don't think they have stipulations on what sports should be shown though

I s'pose so, as would be the nearest Riley's to me, Croydon; as excellent a venue in which to obtain a quote to have one's driveway block-paved as that undoubtably is .   :ph34r:

I think I shall just content myself with listening to Radio 5 extra and hang out until the BBC weekend highlight package.

Cricky must have changed abit in the last ten years then!  The walk from Thornton Heath train station to "Storm Park" always used to feel like a long, if not briskly paced one!
