In Topic: 6 million watch wigan

Tbh this sounds to me like marketing speak! Are wigan in the market for new sponsors (I genuin don't know) this is the sort of thing I'd expect to hear while they were looking for new ones.

In Topic: Malcolm Reilly: England can defeat Australia

28 October 2014 - 06:53 AM

I remeber the GB team coached by Reilly. Probably what I'd consider as the best national side of my lifetime so far. I don't remeber him as a player but I've always been surprised he isn't still involved in the sport over here

In Topic: George Burgess (merged threads)

We're told it's good our players head to the NRL because we'll have a stronger national team, in spite of our almost nonexistent international schedule. Yet union still seem to tempt them from the NRL.

this morning the glass is definitely half empty.

In Topic: Another Burgess set For Sydney?

Dont get me wrong, im not happy players are leaving SL, but not sure raising the sc is the way to go.


I'm not necessarily talking about raising the cap. Let's start off with keeping it level. Since the cap was introduced it has stayed static while the rate of inflation has slowly corroded it at roughly 3% per year. It's now lost nearly 40% of its initial value. It needs to be linked to inflation.

I know caveats have been added to allow some clubs to spend a bit more but surely that destroys one of its aleged goals, the mythical level playing field?

Let's stabalize the cap then in a few years talk about slowly increasing it.

we have never had international success in decades, but surely you could see benefits of when we made that 1st 4N final (features on ITV etc), or last years World Cup semi final?


Indeed I could see the benefits if that happened. I just have the feeling that if we did win it would probably only be mentioned at the very end with no clips.

And then we'll have lost all these great players from our competition for no reason. SLE will have been devalued for no gain.

Sorry I'm in a glass half empty mood today. Call me selfish I want to watch those players earning a good wage playing in the UK.
