The BBC wouldn't have put Ryan Hall on an advertising banner though (even if they did advertising banners!)

 

I do agree that we should do more to 'get in' with the BBC though


In Topic: Would a 'Lower Tier' Tour work in either hemisphere ?

Could the new NRL deal pay for a Victoria/South Australia/West Australia/Tasmania representative side to tour developing southern hemisphere nations, to help drive development in those states/nations

I think you would find that if Swinton had their own stadium in the M27 postcode area and not have been traveling nomads for the past 20 odd years they'd be getting crowds nearer the 2000+ also if Oldham moved tomorrow to Boundry Park, Oldham
and signed a long term lease or built a fit for purpose stadium, they'd probably achive crowds of 2000+ pretty quickly.

I wish this was true, we are great at excuse making

What's the new set up for league 1 next year?

Was just going to ask the same, suspect 2 x conferences (North & South) with everyone in north playing home & away and playing southern teams once

I think Nottingham plus 5 northern teams to avoid diluting the southern clubs further. Manchester, Blackpool and three others ideally. Lancaster, Liverpool, Preston, Scarborough, Carlisle and Barnsley all seem sensible locations if interest could be tapped up in any of them

So we take the 4 weakest teams that struggle the most at attracting decent crowds and give them some 20 hour round trips to play other sides with little support, that'll work
