In Topic: New Schools For Mancunians

Today, 12:45 PM

Thats a great idea!!


I think so too. I shudder to think just how many unearthed raw Sam tomkins, Jason robinsons, ellery hanleys etc there are in the inner-city areas of Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool etc just waiting to be discovered.

Thanks folks. This is a result of a few years quiet hard work and patience and thanks to some decent planning it's now paying off. All of these schools comes from 'organic' growth where schools have asked for us to deliver - no throwing pins at maps and hoping they stick!
There's more to come too.


Do the mancunians get any help with funding from the local council or sport England? Also could or do the mancunians put local community leaders from say moss side, hulme, longsight etc through their RL coaching badges with a view to set up junior sides in said areas?

Always love reading about the latest grassroots RL development in and around Manchester be it from the mancunians or the Rangers. The growth of grassroots RL in Manchester in the past 4-5 years has been nothing short of amazing and surely must be a template for other cities like Sheffield, Liverpool, Birmingham etc.

Isn't this a similar set up to a PNG side in the Queensland cup or a Fijian side in the NSW comp? Everyone seems to think that is a good idea


Yes and no. RL in PNG is the national sport and the distance between PNG and Queensland is half that of the distance between Toronto and London. Plus I think the sp hunters have backing from either the government or mining companies in PNG or quite possibly both. The distance between Fiji and Sydney is quite similar plus Fiji isn't a RL hotbed. Yet.
