#3201113 Low Grand Final Ticket Sales?

Posted by Pie tries on 26 September 2015 - 08:32 PM

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

#3177918 First Professional RL Player Comes Out

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.

#3170994 South Trafford Raiders - some food news !

Posted by Pie tries on 04 August 2015 - 05:30 PM

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!

#3111234 Sol Mokdad / UAE Rugby League (merged threads)

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

#3100764 Great Easter for London Rugby League players!

Posted by Pie tries on 04 April 2015 - 10:19 PM

This is a great post - really shows the benefit of spreading the game.

London is a huge pool of untapped talent for RL - if we are to ever beat the convicts we need to increase our player pool - London is the key.

LMS was international class - and that's from a pie eater !

#3096062 South Trafford Raiders rise again!

Posted by Pie tries on 27 March 2015 - 06:32 PM

45 in attendance - we now have enough players to run u12 and u13 teams in addition to the existing u14 team.

Fab fab fab - if Salford provide support they could have a beast on their hands here !

#3093419 South Trafford Raiders rise again!

Posted by Pie tries on 22 March 2015 - 08:52 PM

Thank you MC - will do. Yes we're in the NW u14 - first game next week. RL is now so popular in Altrincham after everything that happended last year that were looking to run and age group below.

I know it's not a heartland for Salford but the potential down here is amazing - and not Salford usual base - small acorn etc

#3092694 South Trafford Raiders rise again!

Posted by Pie tries on 21 March 2015 - 03:14 PM

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 !
