Are Cockermouth not there?

Somethings in the air. Taking in the match Sunday too at Carcassonne after the pow wow and Warrington game in Perpignan the day before. Meeting all the power brokers here it seems. Then the Federation have their much anticipated press conference in Toulouse Tuesday. Lets hope they deliver.

In Topic: Catalans Dragons

The Catalans foot print grows still more. If the Dragons and SL put their feet up this past weekend other entities have been on the move. The clubs Wheel Chair set up travelled to Preston to take on Leyland Warriors while the U19s Academy side made their second Channel hop to Odsal where they went down 18-6 to the Bradford Bulls.


Elsewhere have seen recently more interest from 'L'Equipe'. Its minuscule I know but its there. They did a decent review of their opening game at Saints and a few sentences the day after. They are at least listing the SL fixtures/results giving it more exposure. They repeated it for Castleford game too. Must keep an eye on it as its the only print coverage the code gets nationally here.

In Topic: South West Update

21 February 2015 - 01:12 PM

London Premier: South West London Chargers, Eastern Rhinos, London Skolars A, Medway Dragons, Bears (formerly Beckenham), Wests Warriors, Hammersmith Hills Hoists

South East Premier: Southampton Spitfires, Portsmouth Navy Seahawks, Surrey Sharks (formerly Guildford Giants), Sussex Merlins, Elmbridge Eagles

London and South East Entry: Weald Warriors, Newham Dockers, South West London Chargers A, Bears A, Eastern Rhinos A


To be honest some of the Devon teams can't travel to Cornwall let alone Bristol so cross division is a non starter. The West of England division probably would struggle as well with the travel.


Conference League South is good but my one concern is the lack of a step up for teams above the East and London premiers. Not convinced anyone other than Eastern Rhinos wants a step up though and the travelling to the south west puts them off


Thanks for that. Yes Bristol to Lands End further than you think!


Though some talk of Cornwall Rebels challenging themselves and in time Southern Conferece. Pipe dream?


Is it too much to expect London Premier-SE to have cross over fixtures for a longer season?

Glad the West of England division has enough teams to run again. Hope things go well for all the clubs as I know at least a couple of them have been struggling


Presume Southampton and Portsmouth staying with South East set-up. No yardage in SW and West playing cross conference fixtures to pad out the programme. Still good to hear that Cornwall-Devon is on again and a 3-match series.


With the East looking solid along with Midlands not looking too bad. Wales seemed to have re-grouped well with the arrival of Cardiff City and not forgetting their three Southern Conference entities.
