In Topic: Short term success V's long term investment

Today, 03:13 PM

Investing in  the surrounding community like the Salford Red Devils Foundation, you mean?

Does that investment match the player recruitment and wages investment?

widnes is in cheshire not merseyside

It is having historically been part of Lancashire. Doesn't towns like widnes, st Helen's and Warrington have a large overspill Liverpool population?

In Topic: 31/07/14 - Wigan Warriors v Salford Red Devils KO 8pm (TV)

Today, 01:10 PM

Wigan will edge it. What's the big deal about Tomkins? He is just a plodder who didn't make it at RU so comes crawling back. Never rated him when he was here before just a squad player at best!

He was never a centre in union never mind league and decided to come back to what he does best, playing league with a cut in wages I believe. I honestly rated him as an England international back rower before he left and hope he can get back to that level again with his return to league.

In Topic: Anyone going down under for the 4N?

Today, 12:01 PM

Was looking seriously at going but the late announcement of fixtures meant I couldn't work it through in the end. Anybody following the lads to Aus/NZ? For those that do it looks like tough logistics with Brisbane, Melbourne, Dunedin and Wellington - they certainly like to get England on the move.
Looks like the TV with a pot of tea and some toast for me. Pretty gutted I can't be there. There must be some folks making the trip though.

I think like you say the late announcement of dates for the games will have seriously dented any English following. The best bet in terms of English support down under will be from the expat communities in Brisbane, melebourne, Wellington etc.

As would anyone who is sane.

Sane and the current England coach aren't words you would put in the same sentence.
