Then they made it so Catalans could be relegated next season so, guess what, the Dragons have pulled half of their French players out of the squad to give them an off-season. Who can blame them - it's jeopardy. They did provide credible opposition for England at Wigan last year.


no excuse cuts it. The irish are amateur with little or no pedigree in the sport.....french rl needs to take a long hard look inwards.

In Topic: 11 Super League players in Top 100 players in the world

I like Sam tomkins, but to suggest he's that high and above other English players after a season with NZ warriors! Win / lose ratio average to be polite...IMHO this is just proves what a load a tosh it is???and TBF Joel monas, top try scorer in SL shows another point, SL means jack to our NRL friends, jack.... So nothing to see, let's move on


He wasnt even in the top 5 fullbacks in the NRL this year.

In Topic: Canadian team apply to join Championship 1 (merged threads)

16 October 2014 - 10:09 PM

The NFL, a competition that has considerably more exposure on a global scale and that receives more money for a couple of Monday Night games than we get all year has for decades wrestled with the idea of a European Franchise in their domestic competition. The concept that a Canadian team, no matter how well funded could be parachuted into a UK based league, making it the only full time outfit in that comp is laughable. As for Away Fans......as a London Broncos supporter I can assure you that we'd have space in our taxi for the travelling Canadians, whilst the English invasion of Canada would maybe number a bakers dozen at best. Expansion of a sport is best done within that country and even then there's no assurance of success...Catalans Dragons being in SL has done little for the French domestic or International scene and even parachuting PROFESSIONAL teams from Wales and London into the game failed miserably.

 

Better to test the water with regular season games being taken to Toronto as exhibition matches to see if the 7,600 are really interested in club football over Internationals against the USA. The 10k or so crowd v Jamaica a few years back was part of a festival BTW......the figure this year was less than 1/3 of that. Let these "investors" pay to get Wigan v Saints played in Toronto and see if there's an appetite for it before further alienating the teams in the lower divisions.


In Topic: 05/10/14 - Souths Rabbitohs v Canterbury Bulldogs (NRL Grand Final Match Thread)

Obvious trolling, 1 post to your newly created persona
at least I hope it's trolling because if there's any hint of seriousness in that post it betrays your complete and utter ignorance of sport never mind Rugby League.

It was a blatant troll.........

Sam has had months to come up for an alternative explanation for choosing to be a shallow cashed up defector.
Shove it ok cross code as this has nothing to do with RL, it's simply a greedy man trying to justify his greed.

Or an athelete makkng as much money from professional sport as he can in his short career
