There's nothing wrong with our game that money couldn't solve. Money for grass roots development.

 

If the Pennine League and its equivalents were strong, more young players would join and, over a ten year period, Superlague would get stronger.

 

The World Cup is telling us that we need to attract parents to fetch their kids to RL club training camps across the UK.

 

The Olympics are over and the economy is picking up. Now's the time to bang on the Ministry of Culture's door.

Well that is what Sport England are their for and they have just cut the funding and used it for other sports that have done better at attracting youngsters and hence parents during the same period.

The World Cup has been a victory for all RL fans whatever their thoughts and opinions may be of how the game goes from here. I don't know anyone who hasn't enjoyed it apart from the wife as its dominated the TV screen for so long. As for the new proposed system being for the small minded, I would hardly class Hetherington, McManus et al as falling into that category.


Isnt McManus one of the chairmen against the 3x8 system.

My club's chairman is a canny bloke.  He tends to go wherever the flow looks best.  Preferably one that will bring money into the Saints' coffers.
