London Super League Thursday

29 April 2015 - 07:44 PM

Super League is back on live on the big screen in the VIP section of Rileys Sports Bar, Haymarket, this Thursday 30th April, hosted by the London Rugby League Foundation.

Over 70 people attended the first Super League Thursday a fortnight ago, for the classic match up between Wigan and Warrington. This Thursday, the action features the current Challenge Cup holders, Leeds Rhinos against Yorkshire rivals, Huddersfield Giants.

London Broncos will be special guests on the night with current captain Wes Naiqama, former Sheffield player Matt Garside and London born Iliess Macani in attendance. There’ll be an opportunity to meet and chat with the players, plus you’ll have the opportunity to win a playing shirt and match tickets in the Foundation’s raffle.

Doors open on Thursday night at 6:30pm and entry is free of charge. Everyone is welcome and its a great opportunity to get together with fellow rugby league fans in London, or just introduce new friends to the sport.

So if you live or work in London, get down this Thursday night for a great night of rugby league at Riley’s Sports Bar.

'Southern' RL fans - why do you follow the sport?

14 March 2015 - 11:54 AM

Over the season I am going to try to visit as many 'southern' (essentially anywhere south of the heartland areas) RL teams as I can. One thing I am interested in, beyond experiencing games at different levels,  is why people follow, play, manage or invest in the sport.

 

So, if you are a 'southern' RL fan-

 

Where were you born?

Where do you live?

How do you get involved in game (spectator, sponsor, post on here...)

Why do you follow RL?

 

I am planning to write it up here: https://fishinginaba....wordpress.com/
