#2950546 Bradford Bulls take appeal to the High Court

So nobody thinks he's continuing on as he may have a case????

I do, he must have something to go with. He obviously doesn't think he's wasting his time.

#2949486 Daniel Vidot - Depressing International RL story

Posted by jlawton21 on 25 June 2014 - 09:26 AM

I think it's understandable that these players would prefer Origin because, as you say, the follow up from the World Cup has been disappointing.
More meaningful internationals are needed, especially around State of Origin time.

#2945436 Expanded WCC , Broncos + Rabbitohs to play ?

Posted by jlawton21 on 16 June 2014 - 12:00 PM

I want to see it expanded, but this format doesn't make sense. If three teams are going to play, surely it should be the top three?

Owen Craigie?

#2900492 Catalan - What has gone wrong and can they go down?

Posted by jlawton21 on 17 March 2014 - 07:47 AM

IMO the French players at Catalan could more than hold their own in the Championship.

The money? I honestly don't know. And I hope it doesn't become an issue as I want to see Catalans stay in Super League.

Catalans would struggle to afford to play in the championship so I doubt any other elite team could

They'd struggle in the Championship as it is now, what about a better funded championship that contained some other French clubs aswell?

Protecting Les Catalans from the drop creates the danger that if they do not stop the rot they may end up going through seasons with Nil Points or just the odd win. The crowds WILL (we can safely say) then peel away, the spiral of decline continues and fixtures against the club could be embarrassing and economically losers for the other 11 clubs.

I won't pretend that having a club exempt from the drop is ideal, because I know it's not. I just think that losing Catalans would be a disaster for European Super League.
Catalans have finished at the bottom a few times and bounced back up the table. I doubt a club with good finances and a steady flow of talent would continually finish at the bottom of the league.

#2898235 Koukash confirms wife’s interest in purchasing Bulls

Posted by jlawton21 on 13 March 2014 - 04:24 AM

Great news for all concerned IMO. The number of clubs with wealthy owners is increasing(assuming the deal goes through). When we have enough teams comfortably spending up to the salary cap, then we can realistically talk about raising the cap.
