The text should obviously be readable throughout and we are disappointed to note that some readers have found this not to be the case. We will investigate the problem with our printers and resolve it in time for the next issue.
Please stick with us!
Sorry John but why blame the printers for what is obviously a design decision?. The light print on a white background for all paragraphs but the first is unreadable. The previous format when entire articles were in black print on a dark solid coloured background was unreadable. Worryingly, the Art Director is listed as the same person as the Editor and in my opinion both content and appearance are going in the wrong direction. I can only stick around for one more issue before renewal is due. Decision time.
The RFL's own stats paint a brighter picture. These include all forms of the game wheelchair, touch, tag, masters, the lot. Thats a better comparison with the sports at the top of the UK list. Swimmong includes any one who just swims once week, athletics include joggers and parkruns.
