Shouldn't Brian Barwick with a career in the media be doing more to improve media coverage of our game at all levels?

#3184092 29/8/2015 RL Challenge Cup Final Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos, Wembley...

Posted by The Future is League on 29 August 2015 - 07:17 PM

For me todays victory for Leeds showed Rovers the way do it. The reward for forward planning.

Rovers now have to forget the policy of signing has beens and never was players from the NRL and start to get serious about junior development.

Leeds have shown the benefit of taking junior development seriously.

Rovers need to forget about that joint junior development with Hull FC and develop their own juniors.

#3181035 New NRL deal to split the league? / Murdoch (merged threads)

Posted by The Future is League on 23 August 2015 - 07:38 AM

So is murdoch bullying the NRL...or is dave smith bullying news corp..lol

Im finding it all very interesting i must say

When 49 of the top 100 programs on Foxtel are NRL Smith has a strong hand.

If Foxtel don't want to pay the going rate Smith will go else where.

Rupert can't afford to lose subscribtions to his Foxtel channel that's why he's so annoyed.

Thye are really bagging Snith in Ruperts newpapers today, its called fear by the Murdoch lackies.

#3181018 New NRL deal to split the league? / Murdoch (merged threads)

Posted by The Future is League on 23 August 2015 - 06:38 AM

The figures suggest that the NRL can survive without Foxtel.

Foxtel can't survive without the NRL.

That's why Rupert is so mad with the NRL deal with Channel 9.

That's why he went OTT with his offer to aerial ping pong.

If Rupert wants the NRL back on Foxtel he has to part with the cash.

#3175801 13 Aug: Super 8s - Castleford Tigers v Warrington Wolves KO 8pm (TV)

For the budget he's got compared to some other Super Leagie coaches Daryl Powell does a great job

#3173371 8-9 Aug: The Qualifiers Super 8s Match Thread

Posted by The Future is League on 09 August 2015 - 05:20 PM

Superb game playing out at Salford, it was all Salford in the first half but Wakey pegged one back on the halftime hooter and have gone on in the second half.

22-24 in Wakefield's favour at the moment. 18 minutes left.

Did anyone hear Koukash at halftime? He actually came across as.. composed and considered.

Marwan Koukash is a good man.

His heart is in the right place with the Red Devils, and I'm delighted they won today.

Trust me the good Doctor will get it right, but it might take a bit longer than he first thought

#3167003 Hull FC and Hull KR to merge...

Posted by The Future is League on 28 July 2015 - 08:05 PM

I can't even work this out, please bear with me. Do Catalans have an academy team in the academy league or not?

Oh - and why would the Academy be an indicator for the senior team? Has this been the case previously?


Academies are a indication that clubs are looking to the future.

Club academies are the future not area academies.

Clubs with no academies show me they have no anbition.

No amibition means no Super League place for them imo.

#3159129 The European Union Referendum

Posted by The Future is League on 16 July 2015 - 05:46 PM

" take away all of our rights" Nice to see the usually facts brought into the EU referendum debate.

Thats what happens when they want to alter your work contract.

This is only the thin end of the wedge.

#3159004 In Support Of Tube Drivers

Posted by The Future is League on 16 July 2015 - 02:01 PM

We have to look at the broader picture with the tube strikes.

The Tory party and their pals want to destroy the unions and have since unions were first formed.

Like any right wing party they want to rule with an iron rod and don't want debate. They want to keep working people down.

The first thing a dictatorship does is try and destroy the unions. You only have to look at want happened under Hitler, Franco and Mussolini and the Latin American dictatorships.

#3159002 £12bn in welfare cuts

Posted by The Future is League on 16 July 2015 - 01:48 PM

On a related note, it seems the lowest paid NHS staff would need a 15% pay increase to hit £9 p/h by 2019. Unfortunately, as they're public sector workers, they'll be limited to 1% per annum.

£9 an hour isn't enough now to live on if you have a young family let alone waiting 5 years to get it.

#3153040 5 Jul: Salford Red Devils v Catalans Dragons KO 3pm

Posted by The Future is League on 05 July 2015 - 04:59 PM

I'm not a Red Devils fan and i don't dislike the Catalans, but I'm glad the Red Devils won today.

#3152395 Heathrow

Posted by The Future is League on 04 July 2015 - 10:09 AM

The Thames Estuary plan seems to fit for me. 

Why the Thames estuary is a non starter.

Building an airport where their is a boat full of ammunition that could explode at any time shows some politicians have not done their homework

Anyone who has moved into the Gatwick or Heathrow areas in the last 50 + years knew what they were letting themselves in for. If they didn't they were daft.


#3148517 Ben Crooks to Cas?

Posted by The Future is League on 27 June 2015 - 05:39 PM

Any player coached by Daryl Powell will improve in my opinion.

#3147936 Wakefield Stadium

Posted by The Future is League on 26 June 2015 - 06:12 PM

Going back to the late 1990s when Wakey got promoted they promosied the RFL a new stadium, or a complete rebuild of Belle Vue as we know nothing happened.

#3142469 Josh Jones signs for Exeter

Posted by The Future is League on 17 June 2015 - 07:08 PM

Not happy about this one. Really like the player. I thought he was an outside chance to make the England team. Shame. All I can hope for is that he'll be back.

I hope he doesn't return. As far as I'm concerned once they have gone they have gone.

If he fails let him stew in union. He's made his bed let him lie in it.
