I'll tell you what's pathetic, pitiful and paranoid, and that is thinking that rugby union is responsible for all of RLs ills. The success or failure of our game lies entirely in its own hands. We are not in the media as often as we wish because we do not have enough of interest to say and do not have the capabilities to get enough of what is interesting into the public domain. We do not have enough capability in running the game. What has happened at Swinton is not the fault of union. Swinton has been its own worst enemy since the glory days of the early 60s. It's not unions fault that Fev seem to be getting involved in yet another visa tangle, it's not u ions fault that we lost the race to register" u Rugby World Cup"...we didn't even try. It's not unions fault that our international game is shambles it is.
