NRL dodged a bullet when RU signed him up..


He probably would have been better staying in fumbleball where they have a history of covering these things up in the fumbleball way :whistle:

#3074518 NRL to have season opener at Wembley?

Posted by The Future is League on 19 February 2015 - 02:00 AM

Watching Fox Sports News this morning and it was revealed that the NRL is looking to have a season opener game in London - Wembley was mentioned - in 2016.

What are your thoughts?

Edit - dont know how to put a link up but there is an article in todays Sydney Morning Herald about it.

Trust me its not going to happen. In the past i have heard that the NRL is going to start the season in Hong kong, China, etc. If it was going to happen it would have happened by now.

The NRL needs to become national in Australia before thinking about starting the season in London.


#3060384 This piece doesn't reflect well on the RLIF and its new boss

Posted by The Future is League on 25 January 2015 - 02:57 AM

steve is still upset his planned GB tour this year got kicked into the long grass..

believe it or not but we've actually seen more activity from the RLIF since big nigel took over as chairman than we have for the previous 10 years when a aussie then a kiwi ran the RLIF...

under colin love then scott carter the RLIF was non-exsistant....but now a pom is in charge mascord expects tge world and he wants it too happen yesterday!

Correct. Them two Aussies had they chance to promote International Rugby League and failed.

Aussies need to get into their heads that International Rugby League should be the pinnicle of the game, not SOO.

Good to see the junior development program is working well at Rovers, not.

The German Bundisliga model should be the blueprint for Rugby League.

Don't forget to shut the door on the way out Griff. Bye bye

#3018858 "Rugby league's international failure is spectacular"

Posted by The Future is League on 24 October 2014 - 01:55 AM

This pretty much sums it all up for me !




Meanwhile, the Guardian also notes that organisers of yawnion's 2015 World Cup kick-and-clap borefest are warning that "there will be disappointment' in the ticketing ballot after receiving 5m applications"


I write all of this as a massive fan of international RL, but I am utterly sick of the ineptitude and short-sightedness of RL administrators/owners etc around the globe.

For me SOO is killing International Rugby League. When you have players from overseas wanting to put on a SOO jumper rather than a international jumper for the land of their berth because you get payed more playing SOO it stiinks. SOO has its place of course, but not at the expense on International Rugby League.

#3018324 Union giving 10,000 to state schools who start RU teams

Posted by The Future is League on 23 October 2014 - 01:22 AM

I look forward to seeing Prince Harry promote the British Rugby League schools championship. Which in honesty in the sense of balance he should.

#3014919 Sam Burgess (merged threads)

Its really time time to forget Sam now and move on. Sam has made his choice and we wish him well. Lets move on.

#3014365 Ben Flower banned for 6 months

Posted by The Future is League on 15 October 2014 - 12:28 PM

Lets hope Ben Flower Ben Flower learns from this.

I must say i think Wigan have been bordering on the edge this season with some of their play. For me they have a few head hunters in the team.

#3001240 Opinion: Is relegation really a disaster?

Posted by The Future is League on 23 September 2014 - 02:44 PM

The future is League is correct - in order to win an Ashes or WC again we must go to one division of 38 as we have won neither during SL, P&R, Licencing etc


Relegation is only bad if there is no way back, we need two FT tens with a smaller funding gap to achieve that imo but next year there will be 4 teams having a right pop at winning promotion

You can take the rise all you want. Just name me a year when we won the world cup or test series against Australia when we had relegation?

I look forward to your answer :whistle:

#3001150 Opinion: Is relegation really a disaster?

Posted by The Future is League on 23 September 2014 - 01:04 PM

The best Rugby Competition in the world doesn't do Relegation.

GB haven't won a world cup since 1972 when there wasn't relegation

GB haven't beaten Australia in a test series since 1970 when there wasn't relegation.

#3001140 After the Scottish referendum - what next? How should the UK be governed?

Posted by The Future is League on 23 September 2014 - 12:54 PM

Everybody should get the same benefits. No UK country should get more.
