I don't understand why the French are persistent with 2nd rate English coaches. Surely they're better off employing someone based in France watching the league all season & maybe as a Frenchman get the pride & passion from the lads.
I don't know the French league very well but surely there must be some half decent or former experience coaches around.

Disgusting FFR X111 needs a complete overhaul and modernisation. Richard Agar was also a terrible choice as coach. 




#3015633 International game needs long-term strategy: Wood

Posted by The Daddy_merged on 17 October 2014 - 04:28 PM


RLIF chairman Nigel Wood is hoping that a ten-year plan devised by the game will help prevent top Rugby League stars being lured into other sports.
Wood, the Rugby Football League chief executive who was voted in as chairman of the International Federation this year, admits the game needs to act to make its international aspect more attractive in the wake of the most recent high-profile defections.
England forward Sam Burgess is in the process of switching codes to join Bath, while Australian back Jarryd Hayne pulled out of the forthcoming Four Nations Series to try his hand at American football.
“I think the international game is under-developed by reference to what it is capable of,” said Wood.
“We all know what the challenges are in terms of the number of nations that are legitimate contenders for the big prizes.
“I think there has to be a long-term strategy to grow more nations. In the long run, you need six to eight decent nations to put on really great world events.
“The International Federation needs to work with both the RFL and the NRL to help grow those nations over the fastest possible period of time.”

Not really fare that this franchise is being considered without a TV deal and Toulouse still haven't been granted a spot.


#3011299 Toulouse

Posted by The Daddy_merged on 10 October 2014 - 08:10 PM

When you look at what Catalan have achieved in their sort time in SL, Toulouse have the potential to be the biggest Rugby League club in europe. If you take into account the funding local councils give to pro sports teams and the vastness of the city of Toulouse. The problem is so many people in the game is backward thinking, this should have been done and dusted a long time ago.

Oh my lord. That's semi final rugby??

Appalling. The intensity was poor, the discipline was poor, there wasn't a 7 in the stadium nevermind on the pitch - i had a glimmer of hope re the 4 nations when you look at the possible 17, but we just dont play enough intense rugby for them to get used to International RL.


Rubbish

Massive contribution to the sport in both England and France. Great point he made in the Sky interview about a lack of a joined up approach to developing the game in Europe.

Thanks David

He must be really smart. I also predicted the current four teams as the last four but decided not to mention it until now.


Of course you did.

If the RFL refuse his registration, it would be a tragedy and a complete own goal.

Forget it, we're moving on to how good Escaré is.

Garcia is a very good prospect, he's my favorite forward in the team, he brings so much!

Also, we're not missing Pryce, don't we?


Escare is awesome!
