#3266474 Wayne Bennett to coach England?

Posted by Copa on 02 February 2016 - 08:05 PM

Bennett v Australia will boost ticket sales and media interest in the wc significantly.

Fantastic if they can attend.

 




#3258783 State of Origin as International

Posted by Copa on 17 January 2016 - 04:42 AM

You could arguably add the Burgess brothers and Graham. The other 2 haven't proven themselves in the premier rl club competition. All good and well that they perform in the super league but as we all know, the NRL is much more superior and tougher. They'll just be average players in the NRL. It's like a Championship football player claiming to be the best football player because he dominates in the competition.

Hodgson is going well in the NRL.  




#3258486 South America development plan

FT Latin heat 54 v Thai all stars 16.

 

Feisty match.




#3258467 South America development plan

Posted by Copa on 16 January 2016 - 08:10 AM

There's a massive guy from Guyana in the second game (v Thai all stars). If he's representative of people from there I think we have the sport for them!

What a generous offer from the bulldogs.  That's a lot of tickets to give away but I guess they play in a very large stadium that ha plenty of spare seats.

 

 




#3251470 Possible world cup games in Fiji

Interesting development.

It'd be a great place to go to for a match and really pushes rugby league in the Pacific.

It also adds competitive tension when it comes time to bid for games.​




#3240047 New NRL Deal

Posted by Copa on 27 November 2015 - 09:52 AM

6pm games on Friday is disgraceful. Unless there's another untapped market they've identified it will get small crowds and deter people from buying season tickets. I can't see the warriors getting every 6pm (Sydney time) game. So who else will host these games?


#3239947 NRL signs $1.8bill TV deal

Posted by Copa on 27 November 2015 - 04:04 AM

6pm Friday... What a load of ****. Say goodbye to crowds and season ticket holders.


#3227883 RLIF meeting in Paris

Posted by Copa on 05 November 2015 - 09:16 AM

9s is great. Heaps better than 7s of either code.


#3225862 Hello folks!

Posted by Copa on 02 November 2015 - 09:05 AM

Have you noticed that over that whole period Australia has always beaten England/UK when it matters? Yours sincerely, An Australian Ps. Welcome back to rugby league!


#3224695 Test series not shown in Australia .... apparently

Posted by Copa on 01 November 2015 - 06:29 AM

Foxtel, via EurosportHD (channel 263), are showing the third test live from Wigan though...

How very odd and frustrating for our friends over there.

eurosport used to have the first game listed too until a few days ago when it disappeared.




#3223527 South Africa v Lebanon

Streaming issues resolved for the next match according to rlef on Facebook http://livestream.co...a/sarugbyleague


#3220446 Convert Hunting

Posted by Copa on 24 October 2015 - 10:45 PM

 

Like who?

Do you have a list of NRL players who were harvested from pure Union backgrounds?

 

Yes. I keep a list of these things. I keep it with all my other lists.

Google is your friend.


#3220009 England v France - 10k crowd or its a failure

Posted by Copa on 24 October 2015 - 11:00 AM

Meanwhile Lebanon v south Africa is being streamed and Lebanese tv crews have flown to south africa to cover the series .... and nobody can watch England v France outside of the stadium.
