  1. “Pearson, speaking exclusively to the Guardian, believes extra power for the clubs will enable the sport to move forward." In my 40-plus years of watching RL, I have come to realise one thing: extra power for the clubs ALWAYS leads to the sport of RL moving backwards! Oh well, another year, another restructure. Yawn. Wake me up when John Quayle has been appointed head of the UK RFL. He – or somebody like him – is UK RL's only hope (apologies to Obi-Wan Kenobi). And, to add, were these 12 clubs/club chairmen the same 12 clubs/club chairmen who agreed to the ludicrous 3x8 structure And were these 12 clubs/club chairmen the same 12 clubs/club chairmen who agreed to SL clubs playing a ridiculous 30 regular season games a year?

  4. Women’s World Cup

  5. World Cup Crowds

    Cheers So let's say (being optimistic) we get 60,000 for the 4 Q/Fs, and full houses for the 2 semis (50,000 + 30,000) and a full house for the final (50,000), we just MAY reach 425,000 for the tournament! But likely somewhere between 375,000 and 400,000 … which is okay-ish
  6. World Cup Crowds

    How many people have actually attended games (I don't want a debate re averages, just actual crowd numbers, and NOT counting double headers twice!)? Thanks!
