Yeah I read it the same way. Wigan aren't helping Souths out, they're helping themselves by training with an NRL team before they themselves play an NRL team.. Shaun Wane's issue with Tony Smith was based on Warrington trying to replicate the Wigan style of play for the Roosters benefit.

Just someone trying to add a bit more to the local rivalry..

Think Shem Tatupu's first game for Wigan was the cross code game against bath ( the union game ).

Would like to know what happened to Paul Koloi and Doc Murray, think I have a few old videos of the ill fated WCC of 97 when both featured for Wigan, along with Stuart Lester I think.

Always thought Koloi had the basic skill, but just wasn't ready for the required step up. Didn't help that Wigan as a club we're going backwards at the time.

It seems the RFL/Superleague has made some effort to promote this, within their means. Posts from celebs and retweets from the likes of Newcastle United .. So reaching a few more than the norm. Sky have obviously posted about the launch, though not sure if the BBC have.. Though I did see an article online about the return of the superleague show on the BBC, for a seventeenth series.. Though clearly after 17 series it's still not worthy of a national time slot.

Agree. It's just plain silly.

I've had a sportswear brand rip-off some of my work recently, so I can understand the band kicking off.

The RFL/superleague should have stuck with VCCP.

All over twitter (well, the band are kicking off, as you'd expect) about the track being used without the permission of the band or their label.

If this is the case, it just highlights again how amateur we can be at times.

Maybe the RFL used an external agency for the video and it's their fault and therefore the agency that could be in legal trouble, but if it is an internal campaign by the RFL the video soundtrack will have to be pulled, unless they licence the track from the label, which will probably cost them more now than it would have done initially.

Worst thing is, there are so many agencies out that that offer licenced music exactly for this type of thing. The 'extraordinary' campaign of a couple of seasons ago used exactly that.

A nice video that now just makes Superleague/RFL look stupid. Whether they are directly responsible or not. Anyone with any sense checks these things.
