Expansion can never be for expansions sake. It has to be based on evidence on the ground. The Leicester bid has just come out of no-where. Give them the benefit of the doubt and help them, but let's not stick pins in the map again. Coventry, as I'm sure Bearman can elaborate, have been working towards this goal for a decade, as well as having the stadium and commercial nous to pull it off. I think with four newly admitted clubs in two years it would be time to consolidate and ensure that all are viable, rather than expanding.

 

Morty - the only reason that there are (annual) problems at Swinton is because of the people running it. The RFL should help the club, yes, but not bail out the custodians IMO.

disques vogue

The club where Eurovision isn't a dirty word. A waltz through the leopard skin lined world of Tom Jones, Bert Kampfert and Burt Bacharach. Step out to the sound of the happy hammond and swing to the seductive sounds of the samba.

DJ's, raffles, cocktails and wide collars. Please dress smart. Gentlemen might like to wear a suit.

Same price. Same music. Same rubbish prizes.

I do agree with widening the sport but at what cost.

What got me this morning was the BBC. Watching the news and they mentioned some American sports results before the Current World Cup. Why???

The supporters have issues with the custodians as well mate...

They bought the dump that is Odsal as part of saving the Bulls ... now tell me that was money well spent !!!
