  1. skolars played st helens * 1 and bradford bulls * 2 in dublin and drew a crowd both times.
  2. probably more about where you can find 3 or 4 hit net worths willing to back it
  3. Given Skolars proven ability to put on events and not just games you have to think the first L1 game involving Toronto will be a treat. Capital Challenge, London Clash and the stalwart Friday Night Lights are now fixtures in the diary for many RL fans and do the skolars proud. I expect they will put together a full day for this one and one that will definitely do a lot to put themselves in good light, do L1 proud and launch Toronto as they should be launched. all for only £10!!
  4. my view is they need something to build on solid foundations. seems to me this would offer that. how great would it be to have l1 pro clubs in ireland, NI & Scotland. gives a realistic pyramid for the amateur game. also overtime could mean more high profile clubs and investment. the rfl should jump on this
  5. dont think thats what its saying. The RFL provide £75k a year for L1 and this would top up. they use coventry as an example and i suspect they have made it work on similar numbers.
  6. i personally believe that to develop all the UK & I countries need a pro team. League 1 is great for putting down real roots in a country. it allows a pyramid to start to be created and a real business around RL to develop. seems a well thought out piece.
  7. we had tons of kids there. we had our junior registration day as well. we have teams from U7 to U18 and growing in double percentage points year on year. also we see our catchment more as Haringey than london.
  8. at least 800 all in i reckon one the day
  9. for me it was a very very good day out. skolars were poor but the day was great and lets have it again next year
  10. LADS v Medway Masters - 1 p.m. London Chargers v Bridgend Blue Bulls - 1 p.m Skolars v Broncos - 3 p.m. West Warriors v GB Police - 5 p.m. and real ale what a cracking day out.
  11. bit early for this by anyones standards
  12. very very very early to say mate. early signs look great tho
  13. best news in a long time
  14. London Skolars Head Coach Jermaine Coleman has named a strong squad for this weekend’s ‘London Clash’. After last week’s successful start to his pre-season campaign against a young Wigan side, Coleman will be looking for his squad to take another step forward this weekend against what should be a competitive Broncos side at New River. The London Skolars squad for the ‘London Clash’ Jake Melling Sam Nash Joshua Allinson Lameck Juma Michael Brown Mike Bishay Charlie Lawrence Louis Robinson Billy Driver Dave Williams Lamont Bryan Eddie Mbaraga Ryan Chester Michael Sykes Erjon Dollapi Will Martin Will Fairhurst Michael Greenhalgh Jordan Williams Aaron Small Callum Whitcombe Coleman spoke of the upcoming game ‘We enjoyed last week and I think it was a real boost for the boys to get the win, however whilst we were good in parts, we were pretty harsh with each other in the video review and have worked hard in training to put these right. The whole squad are well aware what happened in this fixture last year and I know the boys and coaching staff are really focused on putting together a good performance this weekend against the Broncos. We are building towards our first competitive game in just under 3 weeks time and so need to make sure each opportunity we have we take steps forward.’ The game forms part of what is planned to be a superb day of Rugby League in the Capital, with SW Chargers and West Warriors bringing their Challenge Cup fixtures to New River. The action kicks off at 1pm, the bar will be open and hot food available, so please get down early and enjoy the London Clash. Tickets are available in advance for £10 and are online at
