In Topic: RFL comfortable with punching stance

Today, 09:33 AM

I assumed this was about their fighting stance and the Keighley situation was going to be resolved in a boxing match. I'm quite disappointed now...

So if another sponsor wanted to sponsor the competition in the UK they should be told to p1$$ off.

I'm not sure what you're getting at...


If there is a title sponsor, and someone else wants to come in as title sponsor then the original contract should be honoured, unless the second offer is significant enough to buy out of the contract. Same as now.

fair enough. I don't doubt what they have proposed is possible, I just question I'd it is the best plan

It may not be the best plan, but it may be that sponsors are more interested in this international idea than any other. You can't assume that the same funding will be available for development officers as for a team playing against teams from the birthplace of rugby league. Whether they're in the top flight or not, while not irrelevant, isn't that big a deal to the man on the streets of Toronto, who sees the advertisements for Toronto (Canada) playing against another team (not Canada) in a competition called League 1 (1 means the best, that must be the top league)

In Topic: Keiron Cunningham named Saints coach

Yesterday, 11:18 AM

Very interesting news. Kieron may well be in a position to add to his legacy here - hasn't he got a statue outside the stadium? Or he could tarnish it a little I suppose. Those are the real risks of legends going onto coach the club.

I was discussing this with a colleague earlier, neither of us can think of another head coach at a club where there's a statue of himself!

When was the last time that competition has had a sponsor? SL barely managed to find one.

This year
