What market have they targeted in New York, if any, with regard to promoting the team.

Okay, what's the Castleford connection with the Kings?

 

Given that the rival organisation has pretty much folded, have you had any contact with AMNRL players looking for games?

 

Is there much of a chance of getting the sport into local schools?

In a city such as New York, with several competing sports, what will be the niche for rugby league?

 

What growing amateur sports can you look to for inspiration?

What area of Brooklyn are you based in?

What sports do you look for players?

Do you think NYC could handle having another team based in Manhattan/Queens?

What's your 5 year plan?

I'd be interested to know what your budget is, particularly given the distances you're travelling (Boston, RI, Philly and DC). How much of this is funded by the players themselves. What revenue streams do you have?

 

Involved in the running of a club myself (again!), costs and where the money comes from is an issue close to my heart!!!!

 

Thanks.

normally I like to make up my own Q's but this time I thought it would be more fun to know what the fans and those interested what to know straight from the horses mouth.

 

never to many questions, if we have to itll be a two part

What impact, if any, did last year's World Cup have on recruitment, enthusiasm, awareness etc.?

We are all very patient. 

 

With development rugby league, international media should be a low priority.  If they were rushing this over local work, something would be wrong.
