In Topic: Ladbrokes to sponsor Challenge Cup

08 January 2015 - 10:25 AM

Don't see any problem with accepting sponsorship from Ladbrokes but didnt the R.F.L accept the Stobart deal because they didn't want to go with a gambling sponsor who was going to actually put money into the game?

Wasn't the Betfair deal reported to be about £450,000?


No issue with it being Ladbrokes,


From whats come out it doesn't seem to be as big as the Carnegie deal was 2 years ago (signed 8 years ago) which isn't particularly encouraging.


Seems pretty 'RL' to be worrying what light the sponsors show us in, its how much they are paying that is important;


(except pay-day loan companies, who are ####)

Even if it's less than the Carnegie deal, 8 years ago was 2007. It's a different financial situation today as opposed to back then

did you know that the Serbian rugby league  own a good  hostel in Belgrade  for travellers on a budget  and all the profit from it goes to the Serbian rugby league to develop the game there . 

Belgrade is getting a reputation as a good city to visit these days  with direct flights from Manchester and I think Gatwick 

I wasn't aware of that. What's the name of the hostel?

Anybody have any idea when we might see the fixtures released?  Doubt the Griffons need a club administrator who speaks only pidgin Spanish but I'll go and support them if needed.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, I'm sure. I can get you in touch with Rodrigo if you like
