  1. Aussie pundit analysis "Which team has more enarell players? Tonga? They are favourites" C'mon Fiji
  2. We will beat Tonga by 10-15 points next week and stand a good chance versus the Roos. Just need to bring Percival in and use Roby much more.
  3. Revenge for the injustice of Wildersports 1995 is a dish best served cold. This was the score there with a few minutes left wasn't it?
  4. The starkest change in linguistics has to be between longtown and Gretna, 5 miles apart either side of the border.

  6. Next years top 4 in the Championship- Toronto Leigh Toulouse and London
  7. Strikes me that all Wales home games should now be split between Wrexham and Llanelli

    New York Citadels is my personal favourite

    To use the union ground would require either patience, for the league hating committee to pass on, or cash to buy in or buy them out. The ground would be fine for league 1 but would be insufficient for the Championship never mind SL. Brunton Park or its successor would be essential if the club has SL ambitions

    Carlisle has the population and the only SL standard ground in the county but NOTHING else to recommend it as a site for a Cumbria SL club

    The ground issue was renting from BRSA that wanted the money but to retain all control. The ground is improved since the Border Raiders days but BRSA helped bankrupt Celtic Nation that funded the improvements. A better bet would be if anyone had the funds to buy the union ground next to Brunton Park (although flood prone it is just off the motorway and walkable from the train station) or to invest enough to interest Carlisle United in a ground share.

    To clarify my views, any Cumbrian club would be more reliant on home fans than equivalent m62 clubs. In year 1 you might get a reasonable amount of away fans but this would dwindle especially for evening matches. The club should be able to sell weekend breaks in the Lakes but all previous evidence suggests that they will struggle to add enough to the gate to justify the outlay promoting it. Home fans would be plentiful for the right opposition if the club was saying well, there is a market for events in the area. Playing Wakefield on a wet evening or afternoon when both clubs are mid-table would struggle to break 3K. The only club that breaks this figure in the county is Carlisle United, even whether went into non-league they were attracting as many fans as any of the local RL teams in their pomp. There are markets where super league has a better chance of success than Cumbria,

    The 3 clubs are all 30 to 40 miles down a roads clogged with tourists all summer
