5 potential owners show interest in South Wales Scorpions

30 August 2015 - 11:40 AM

With 2 of them putting an offer in already according to League Express. That's brilliant news let's hope they get significant investment coz I think a pro South Wales team has huge potential. Anyone know who the potential backers are?

Richard Marshall - The next big thing

16 August 2015 - 02:42 PM

Keep an eye on Richard Marshall the current Halifax coach. Following on from Daryl Powell's success he'll be the next coach from the Championship to move up to SL and make an impact whether that's with Halifax or another team.

He was on Warrington's coaching team last year, has also come through the system as an England youth coach. Halifax have steadily improved through the year and their Super 8 performances have been solid reflecting his high coaching standards.

Maybe a shout as Salford coach next season?

Eorl Crabtree's County of Origin fantasy

31 July 2015 - 07:00 PM

So I read Eorl Crabtree's column in RL World this month.
He was advocating bringing back Yorkshire V Lancashire which has to be about the dumbest idea since it was last conceived.

The game has moved on from being a truly Yorkshire and Lancashire affair with players now from all over the country London, Midlands and Wales.

As I've said quite a few years ago the game is becoming more Anglo French and I see the biggest rivalry being with England and France as we start to see a better breed of French players.

You can throw in other nations like Scotland and Wales when the time is right.

Yorkshire V Lancashire is a thing of the past time to put the idea to rest.

Scotland Four nations team

31 July 2015 - 02:45 PM

Read in this months Rugby League World that Steve McCormack was over in Oz speaking to NRL about availability and eligibility for the Scotland four nations team.

Does anyone have any confirmation of whose made themselves available and what the Scotland team would look like.

I'm assuming Joe Wardle and Danny Brough are still playing for them. How bout James McManus and Peter Wallace?

If they can get a full team out of NRL and SL players then they might surprise people.

What type of impact would success have for the sport and international team in Scotland?
