  1. If i remember, touch in Australia was affiliated with the RU, but the NRL spent a lot of time and money to woo them back under the RL banner. (and only in 2013, so pretty recent)
  2. Does the RFL need to take a long hard look at itself? Yes. Are they sorely at fault and to blame? No. There are multiple factors at play, from the rise of the gym culture, other sports such as triathlon, obstacle races, etc. Lack of money meaning we have sacked development officers when we need them most, a game divided (its not under total RFL control), all sections blaming each other, short term vision, etc. Solutions? No idea. Other sports have increased participation by starting social or short forms of the game, 5 a side, park run, 20-20, etc. The other rugbys participation figures are boosted by growing social (touch) and women rugby, but some ask how does that help produce SL standard players. We try tag and touch, yet I've seen people say thats a waste of money. We could try and get the international game sorted, as this brings in money and attention, yet again thats derided as a waste of money. SL is the cash crop, the only real cash crop, of course they will get the attention and money. No solution will please everyone is a simple answer.
  3. You think British farmers want cheaper beef and chicken imports?
  4. Yup the NFU were up front in saying the only way to guarantee/protect subsidies was to stay in the EU.
  5. Not sure he was particular trusted him at the election... he just performed adequately whilst May collapsed in every measure.
  6. From statements in the (fake news) press, farmers want- To keep subsidies at EU levels To keep cheap migrant labour at EU levels To keep barriers to inferior foreign produce Sell our stuff abroad with no barriers
  7. Says the guy who sulked from this part of the forum for a month. Its great that you are back by the way!
  8. Where are the polls? Why have you stopped posting them? They were the proof that no one trusts labour? Why have you stopped?
  10. No bothering with any polls?
