Pretty scary profile that shows that RL fans' favourite sport is Rugby Union.

He was interviewed on Today this morning - not in the sports slotg in the general spot usually reserved for politicos etc.  When was the last time a RL player was interviewed on Today?  Never?  When was the last time any sportsman was interviewed in the non sports slot of this programme?  Ever?  Union really has some pull!

Justin Webb is a big fan of Bath and never misses a chance to drone on about them on the Today programme.

Hardly a big crowd, have any of these double headers ever been a success ? The ones at Broncos certainly weren't.

I just hope Hemel get their 50% share of the gate receipts, as per the RFL rules.

And a 3am return to Hemel for a bunch of players that will have to go into work 6 hours later ! Madness.

I doubt if Gateshead would be happy if they had a 6pm kick-off south of Milton Keynes on a Sunday night. 

The double header idea might be a good one for them (though not sure it actually works in practice), but should be a non-starter when the opposition have such a distance to travel.
