The only recent BARLA investment to my knowledge, is the sponsorship of the successful Cumbria Men's ARL which has produced an uplift in Cumbrian open age rugby over the past 12 months.
Are the local league sweeteners offered by the RFL and to who?
Again to my knowledge I only know of the RFL five figure sum given to Yorkshire Juniors ARL which I believe has now stopped following the league's switch to winter.
It would be nice to learn of any others do you care to elaborate.
I'm not going to elaborate. The RFL should be more transparent
