... Fev have not gone through the process in a licensing period. Fax have, .....

 

Maybe you could remind us all of the RFL's summary on 'Fax's application?

I think the phrase you're looking for is "archive photograph". :lol:

Toulouse would be the obvious choice, but wouldn't it be ironic if Fev replaced London? After all, it was Fev that had to give way for them when Super League was set up! If fair play was the order of the day, then Fev would be the obvious choice, bearing in mind the broken promise that as they were the highest placed club to be left out, they would be included if any of the clubs folded. But when has fair play ever been applied when it comes to Super League?

It could all be hype on Faisal's part, because if the club didn't show they were trying then the year-on-year increase in crowd growth might grind to a halt, or even go backwards like it did at Fax?

 

As far as the salary cap goes, how many players at clubs like Fax and Fev have their wages topped up through community work? A club could employ more out of their own pockets if there were sufficient part time jobs around the stadium. The Bigfellas Stadium is a hive of activity every weekday, with training courses, special events and local initiatives. I have a feeling that many of the so-called full time players will have their rugby wages topped up by doing other work funded from a seperate purse? 

Always happened, Steve. Players on legal wages being made up by wives holding "cleaning, catering and admin"jobs.

For people whose eyes are not as good as they were, is the photograph taken in London? Big coincidence then.

Apart from the obvious Blue and White issue.

Dunno, but it was certainly taken before he arrived at Fev. ;)

Hope it has a depth gauge on it.

The YEP man making such a mistake may have been suffering from QATAR. So it's Dubai to him. Hope Feisal didn't make a wrong turning and should have been at Halifax all the time.

Or jobs working for directors of clubs, Bob! In the mid seventies I worked with a guy who was best mate of Phil Brunt, the Cas Vice-Chairman at the time. He told me that Steve "Knocker" Norton used to "work" on one of his gangs in his building firm. Let's just say he did a little bit of work for him, but it kept him at Cas for a while. Similar stuff went on at most of the big clubs with star players before full-time came in.

It has already been categorically stated by the RFL that Toulouse will start in SL2 in 2015 so you can take them out of the equation. They'd have even less chance than us of putting a squad together for 2014 as far as I can see.

Pie in the sky for 2014 IMO. Never mind what the RL have stated, I do believe that Toulouse will be allowed in, along with the non relegation clause as per Catalans. They will replace the Broncos and I am positive that the RL would not be too disappointed to lose such as Wakefield and probably other clubs who are living in the "grey" area, financially.

I believe that in the future, the RL and Sky, require only the selected top dogs in SL, the others making up a seperate league.
