I'd be very surprised if it hasn't.
With only one England game in the North, they could be playing Nepal RU and it would sellout. It'll be a procession and a mismatch but many won't care and many won't be aware.
Edit: It appears it hasn't yet but it almost certainly will. Also, if tickets are freely available rather than being hard to come by this might make it more likely that some have opted for the RU instead of the RL.
Nope loads left - £125 a pop to watch eng rah rah smash the amateurs
I'm glad he's done this - bloody good luck to him. I'm also glad our sport lead the way with stonewall several years ago. We've lost the flat cap image - we are a progressive inclusive sport. If you don't like like I'm sorry it's not the sport for you.
My son plays for South Trafford Raiders and I'm pleased to report the club is goings from strength to strength.
At the start of last season - our first in the NWC league we had 7 training and didn't score in our first four league games.
This season we touched a high point of 70 training one Thursday evening and have added an u13 team to the existing u14 team - which has done well in division three. Last Sunday the u14s won the Blackpool 9s and we've had enquiries from SL clubs about no less than 11 different players.
We're taking 135 parents and children to the Eng v NZ game at Wigan!! Yep most of our players double up and play RU - but believe me - and the parents - love this game !
Thanks to Salford for their ongoing support (be great to see Marwen at our awards night in Sept) with increased parent participation the club will continue to grow (we need parent coaches and more helpers in general). Also thanks to the NW counties for their patience and help - and also to the vast majority of clubs we've played who have treated us with respect for what we are trying to achieve.
Still a long way to go but I thought I'd share some love!
Just don't call it rugby in UAE then. It's not their sport.
Perfect time for "UAE Leagueball" and "UAE Touch Leagueball" to strike.
We can either b*tch and moan that they have more money than us, or be proactive and with what we've got.
No name change - we are Rugby League. Absolutely nothing to be ashamed of
STR held a pre season launch last Thursday were the 30 odd parents and children were kindly joined by Liam Hood and Alan Hunte from Salford RDs. Many thanks for their time, support and insight into professional rugby.
What started two years ago with c10 children is now looking more promising. Although largely dependent on children coming off season from local RU teams we now have a full u14 squad and enough for a development u13s team who aim to play a number of friendies over the season. We've even managed to get two sponsors for polo shirts and training kit.
Last year we started with five defeats - four where we were nilled - to bouncing six wins from the next seven. Whilst we won't win the league we aim to enjoy ourself this season!
Training 7-8pm BTH school Atrincham! Anyone interested very welcome !
