Thanks for the speedy responses guys.
Would you be able to record your answers? I'm trying to get a range of fans opinions for the documentary by going to various matches and asking fans but obviously need some sound from your great opinions.
You could do a 'points of view' and get a voice actor (or much cheaper, friend) to read them out. Preferably not in a comedy Lancastrian or Yorkshire accent though
For me, it's too early to talk about legacy. It's hard to get an international calendar together when there's such a big disparity between the top few and the next tier of teams. I know you asked about Britain it's more about the other nations around the world. Until there's a wider range of competitive options, it'll be difficult to market the international game in England unless it involves NZ or Australia. Hopefully Fiji can progress and make it a big four but we've no way of knowing yet as, although they now have a decent sponsorship deal courtesy of the RLWC, we won't see how they've progressed until they play Samoa and potentially the 4Nations.
I'd love to see a touring Fijian, Samoan, PNG, Tongan team over here but realistically, is there enough money for that. Would also love to see a Wales or Scotland team do the reverse down under. Hopefully England can play a game in PNG as a warm up to the 4Nations at the end of this year. The world cup made a nice profit but is there enough money trickling down to any of these nations for these sort of things? Too early to say yet.
The other legacy for here would be an increase in the people playing the game, both in quantity and geographically. I believe that is happening and RL is one of the few sports to be hitting the Sports England targets. The only real downside is the London Broncos woes as if we do get some real prospects in the south of the country, the path to a fully pro team looks set to be limited to moving up north after this year. Fingers crossed for a London rebuilding next year.
