Hi all,


I am currently a 3rd Year student, studying at Uclan conducting research for my dissertation titled: How does Religion and culture effect participation and perceptions of rugby league. My basis for the research is to discover why rugby league is such a minority sport and how barriers can be broken down to encourage more people to be involved in our beloved game! This short questionnaire will aim to get a fans point of view. The survey is anonymous and will take approximately 5 minutes to complete and all data collected will be held anonymously and securely. Any personal details will be destroyed upon completion.


Thank you in advance

...why rugby league is such a minority sport...


Minority sport? Maybe outside Northern England but not here in the game's heartlands.

Thanks, overwhelmed by the response!


Hi Blue Monkey,


I was comparing it with other sports on a national, global, commercial scale etc although that is something included in my research - the north/south divide.


Also the survey is not suggesting rugby league is a exclusive sport, however I am looking to compare your opinions (supporters) to that of ethnic groups who are not currently active in rugby league, to see if there are any discrepancies


Thanks again, Josh!

Also done and all the best with your dissertation, would be good for you to attend a Lions game and maybe become a regular.
My son is also at UCLAN doing a sports coaching degree.
