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...)
After conceding over 150 points in two games, it seems that Skolars have sacked their coach. While I think there are elements of the teams performance (or rather lack of it) that need better coaching, I had hoped that there would be no changes until the season proper kicked off. The match against Hemel seemed a critical test. Not everything is down to the coach. I am sure with more funds Joe would have strengthened the team, plus we don't have the comfort of a strong RL community down here - lots of teams chasing a few players and no meaningful DR. Feel a but glum today.
More importantly I hope Joe continues with a role to support RL in London. He has done so much.
Was going to post this in the Crowd Watch thread but think it may be a separate debate. Realistically speaking what sort of attendances should we be happy with? What is our bench mark for a good crowd? (i write this the night before watching London v Doncaster).
