In Topic: 20-22 Mar: Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Round 4 Match Thread

22 March 2015 - 08:18 PM

What has happened to the Cru fanbase?  It was looking very healthy when they were in the championship.  Or is it just the Challenge Cup disease striking again (ie few people want to pay for a ticket)?



Attendance pretty on pat for CC

In Topic: Budget 2015

There's an election coming. That's all anyone needs to know about this year's budget.

 

Trust any figures or promises it contains at your peril.

 

Spot on...none of what was announced today is guaranteed to become law post election...the new goverment even a Tory one could disown it.

 

God help us if is a Tory one given proposed cuts in public spending. The next four years will be a lot worse than the last five.

Swindon

Swindon

Got into RL after watching the 3rd Ashes Test in 1988 on TV. Watch some Challenge Cup games but first live game was 1st Ashes Test in 1990 and I was hooked. Found out Swindon had a team (Swindon Bulldogs) and played for them until they folded. Swindon St George started about 10 years later and I played/coached/media with them. Only spectator now, mostly on TV, but still watch the Challenge Cup Final, Grand Final, Internationals and the Mighty Swindon St George live.

I love this game. It's the greatest game of all!

Must get down and see Swindon


In Topic: Leigh Miners CC fund raising

Looking at the response that Leigh Miners have had and the publicty may be a case of 'every clowd...' While giving them £25 I shall be rooting for Oxford RL on the day!


In Topic: Crowdwatch week 5

One thing we can,t answer is how would the crowds have been if the new structure had not been introduced? After 2 years of a downward trend my view is that this would have continued under the old system.Just by standing still might be considered by some to be a success.
