Was just reading through this article, and one quote jumped out immediately.


“The more Super League I can play the better and hopefully I can get selected for the (Wales’) friendly against New Zealand."

Seems strange as NZ are already playing the cooks at Doncaster aren't they?

Interesting. Not heard anything about this. Wales certainly do need a warm up game and guess this would be a very tough warm up match for them, something they'll definitely need to run Italy close on the opening day.

News to me, was expecting it to be Ireland again, big step in class of opposition if that is the case.

Any news on the Welsh Warm up game and will there be anything on the weekend of 13th October ?


I am an oil trader and successful at that but, but marketing, finance, business management, human resources etc are not my strengths

Being an outsider, it is easiest to see what is wrong with the sport. It's a fantastic sport that has been undersold and under-marketed  because people who run it probably want to keep it the way it is

I was reading an article about the NZ v Cooks game the other day, and it said that the problem both sides had in arranging a warm up game was a stipulation by the RLWC organisers that any warm up could not be between two nations in the same group, or who might meet later in the tournament. No mention of any other game for NZ other than the Cooks.

Surely that means you can't play any other team in the tournament. There must be a route where any two teams can meet between the group stages and the final (however unlikely)
