It's not all doom and gloom, there are some good tries.

Sorry wrong board

Some reasonable attempts at point scoring there and ok in their own right but what we really want to see are penalty goals with kickers posturing, "as if cradling an injured dove". That's where the excitement is.  Bring it on!

    • "I’ve actually got big concerns about the game at the moment, because there are not enough tries being scored, which is turning the fans away," said Hansen
    •  
    • "There are going to be millions and millions of people watching it and then all you are going to see is people kick goals".
    •  
      • ".........our game will become a negative sport rather than a positive one
      •  

Three comments that show Hansen doesn't know what he is talking about. 

 

a) tries are not important to union fans - every union poster tells us so

B) there will be at least 4 billion watching people kick goals, not mere millions - and that is exactly what they like!

c) your sport  is already very negative! 

 

Jeez, and he's the coach of the union world champions? :tongue:

None of you get it. I will say again it's not the sport but the event. Until RL can create that we will always be behind. ENG lost I think 8 on the bounce under Johnson they even did that stunt with the purple kit and Nike. Did they still sell out Twickenham every game at 80 quid a ticket yes they did.

About the same time We played Aus at Wigan 3pm kick off. I was there couldnt even sell it out.

Stop deluding yourself in 10 20 years here is likely to be one rugby. I hope some sort of hybrid love to see Wigan v bath all over again

Not sure why you want to see some sort of hybrid.  I like RL exactly the way it is - I certainly don't want to see any union set pieces introduced.  Why dilute the quality of such a great product.

Not sure why you keep insisting that "none of us get it".  More or less everyone who posts on the forum, League and union, gets it and got it well before you started posting here and telling us we don't. ;)
