Could the club put on return coach transfers from the city at £x per head and make some money out of it?

If there's an issue there's money to be made

In Topic: NRL dead ball rule

15 March 2015 - 10:04 AM

Don't like the 7 tackle set.

Should make it relative to distance - kick inside the 20m dead no punishment, kick outside the 20m dead tap on the 30m. In my opinion.

So as the two leagues have different dead ball line rules, what are the international rules? You can make it dead or not?

If not, why the heck have super league decided on a negative rule that punishes good kicks and is different to the rules when we play internationally?

In Topic: NRL opener to head to Wembley Stadium in 2016?

Don't get it. Why have a domestic league fixture from a different country given box seat when we have the best from the world game in an international match or a world club final? Seems like selling a jumbo hot dog in an posh restaurant - even though they have steak being cooked in the kitchen

In Topic: Sports England - Active People Survey

It's not about playing in a team -it's about enabling people a way to say they participate in rugby league as a sport as an individual.

Running and cycling have benefitted due to initiatives purely designed to get great numbers and to make those people feel a part of something.

Rugby league could set up open invite events and do the same. Whether the participants are split into teams or simply have skills sessions is irrelevant.

Similarly a way to promote rugby league fitness regimes (possibly with a ball involved) could simulate that of play - and therefore allow people in their living rooms or gyms to get the benefits without having to pay team subscriptions or travel and take hours out of their lifestyle.

Surveys would in turn get positive answers from people doing any of these things, who could say - yes I participate in rugby league, this boosting participant numbers and earning an increase in funding.

Unfortunately it's not about playing the game of rugby league at all, it's about playing the numbers game.
