One sport I would like to see expand in the education sector is Cheerleading. So many school-age girls dislike sport and avoid it like the plague; however, they love dancing. Cheerleading could bridge that gap and get them to do some positive exercise. It's also something that can be practised for enjoyment in their own time.

That is a very good point.

Maybe it could be combined with darts for the girls.

I don't mean to be a party pooper but on the international front I personally don't think that RL has been well run at all. In the last 30 to 40 years cricket and union have expanded massively as international sports and football is just getting bigger and bigger with declines in very few countries (Austria?). In the meantime in league PNG, Wales and until very recently France seem to be lagging further and further behind Australia and England. Only New Zealand are pushing forward and even gaining on the other two.
I don't mean to sound negative but it was my experience of the 1995 World Cup the first lit my interest in rugby league. This year's World Cup was fantastic but it did not represent a massive step forward from 1995. Cricket and rugby union seem almost unrecognisable as world sports from the 70s and 80s. It was not that long ago when people were saying that football would never takeoff in the United States.
I really don't mean to sound negative but I really think some sort of long term plan should be put in place to develop the international game.
Anyway happy New Year everyone!
