Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME
I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.
Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Joined up thinking? Host a world cup match in Neath and then leave the town without playing another game there? Hope it works out!
Neath got the game in the RLWC not by bidding for it. The interest has never been there. The joined up thinkings in moving them to Maesteg.

im not against the move, but I'm hoping its not an indication of the clubs ambition.
Maesteg has only 20K people there, granted its half an hour to swansea and the same to cardiff, but you need to attract people from those areas to support the team,
Ive a feeling the Scorpions will become the wales rugby league academy for players who can't attract other clubs, losing its independence.
I do hope that I'm wrong though.

Beggars can't be choosers. Maesteg is probably a better bet for visiting fans in general (though I do note the lack of trains) and, given that South Wales like London are serving a pretty spread community it's probably better for that as well.
But I worry about clubs that don't appear to have much solidity behind them. I hope Scorpions can make this work.

Club is looking for 50% of games on Saturdays.
Buses go every hour from Bridgend on Sundays and the club and fans are coordinating pickups across S Wales.
Scorpions website will have full details on directions etc in due course.

It's pleasing to read that a decision has finally been made. I think it's been apparent for some time that maesteg would be chosen, and I'm already looking forward to my first scorpions game, though a family holiday means I won't be able to make the opener on the 2nd March, typical! Personally, games on a Sunday shouldn't be a problem, but I can understand other people's frustration. Good luck everyone in the preparations for the new season!

All part of the club as a whole working together.

I read on Twitter that a new coach and backroom staff have now been officially appointed as well as the move to Maestag being finalised. All sounding good! Hopefully this will be the start of something really positive for the Scorps and RL in south Wales generally.

I should have known you would post in French. ).
Should have said "meilleurs voeux et bonne chance!" (best wishes and good luck). Seriously would like to get down to Maesteg this summer, Bramley commitments allowing.
