###### off Stewart.


Shocking in attack - excellent in defence.

Wigan moved off the mark 3 tackles in a row in that set before Gigot was pushed into touch.

Wigan are playing some dumb rugby... Good to see! :D

Considering the absolutely diabolical performance it's remarkable that Catalans are only 10 down.


I think in defence they have been good.

Actually Old Trafford isn't in Manchester. It's in the borough of Trafford and not the City of Manchester. So using the logic of others. Manchester Doesn't  get the Grand final every year. Trafford does.


Didn't you claim 'Greater Manchester' clubs (other than Wigan) to claim Manchester had more teams that Coventry earlier this week?

Id give stoke some consideration..
Fantastic ground,passionate locals,30mins from manchester on the train


Why? What relevance does Stoke have to RL? What RL activities are taking place in the city? RL internationals should be targeted at places of the relevant size but to support RL activity; not simple sticking a pin in the map as it is 30mins away on the train.

Bump - 18 teams in the league now. We had 30 last year so a few more would be good.

<Redvee has over 30 now so get your team added to our league!>

I'm in agreement with you MancRL in that RL should put the majority of its money into traditional areas.


It already does. Roughly 85% of SL monies since its inception in 1996 have gone to clubs in heartland areas (part of the other 15% is the RFL cut each year from the contract too). The vast majority of monies to Championship/Championship 1 level has gone to clubs in the traditional areas since 1996 as well. The vast majority of Sport England and other RFL funding will go to those areas as well as that's where the majority of RL activity takes place.

So how can traditional areas want even more? Other areas get pittance... my club for example get absolutely zip all from the RFL to expand the game in Norfolk; nothing. It is down to the hard work of volunteers to get into the schools and get community activity running across the game who don't have the likes of SL or Championship clubs on their doorstep. It's about time certain clubs who have been in operation for a long time took on some real responsibility for their own backyard. It's what the likes of Manchester Rangers, Gloucestershire, Coventry Bears, South Wales Scorpions seem to be doing...

You've just referenced the whole of Greater Manchester. The other poster said Manchester. How many are in Manchester itself? Far more appropriate comparison for Coventry.


#3261554 Refugee humanitarian disaster

Posted by GeordieSaint on 24 January 2016 - 04:11 PM

I definitely agree with the RHA in the  article that the time has come for the French and British to provide military cover for all the ports.  Ordinary security cannot deal with hundreds of young males armed with heaven knows what storming civilians whether they are in trucks, on trains or in ships.


I personally think that is nonsense from the RHA. The military are designed for fighting, not for providing security at ports. That is the police's job or a border protection agency.

Name: TotalRL Forum Mini League
Pin: 8909
Password: Fin39paj

Can't remember who won it last year but over 30 of us took part (I finished a respectable 7th I think) so the same or more would be a very good turnout....

Good luck and come on 'Magic Mike's Super Saints'... :D

Slightly better than last year's due to a better ending. Wish Shaun Edwards wasn't in it though...
