  1. Essex Scimitars

    Remember Essex Scimitars from way back.. like over 20 years ago.
  2. Eddie Hearn ' Monitoring RL'

    I don't think he did really.. not in Football terms anyway. Could see Eddie Hearn being a good fit as an event host, but not much beyond that. Maybe i'm wrong. Be interesting to see him involvedregardless.
  3. Eddie Hearn ' Monitoring RL'

    To me they've always struck me as organised and capable of reaching their fan base, but in sports where the door is already quite open (in terms of the willingness of the press to engage), and sports that have had some high spots in the recent past, with a latent fan base. No doubt they are good at something, but i just can't see them making the same sort of dramatic difference in RL. Barry Hearn proved he was bog standard when in charge at Orient.
  4. Eddie Hearn ' Monitoring RL'

    Never really understood the fascination some have with the Hearns. Not convinced either would make a difference in RL.

  6. O'Loughlin wants Bennett to stay

    Few players coming out in support of Bennett staying. Personally i would like him to stay also, but definitely bring in Daryl Powell to coaching staff.
  7. Be interesting to see how he goes up against seasoned SL standard props, when it happens. Seen the lad in the flesh when playing in the amateurs and he was pretty handy, so really hope he keeps on improving. a decent season at the Broncos and the big clubs will come calling.
  8. 2018 Kits

    Leeds playing in Jeans? Shirt looks good though. WCC branding looks good too. Definite improvement.

    Tragic news. RIP Kato

  11. Interesting to see what these changes could be, but I'm not sure I trust our SL clubs to be able to do anything spectacular that would allow us to compete, in terms of exposure and finance for example, with RU. Time will tell I guess, but very much a "let's wait and see" situation for me. Also, not sure why Pearson felt the need to name RU.
  12. Carcassonne v Limoux Streaming

    Just seen on Facebook game cancelled due to severe weather.
  13. Amazon r us.

    In all honesty, do we really think Amazon or Netflix would be interested in showing lower league RL? For SL we'd have to re-negotiate with SKY, or we re-negotiate with the BBC for use of highlights. Or it's new content. maybe it's making the OurLeague app available on the Amazon fire stick/TV. maybe it could be some form of documentary, spread over the course of the play-offs, for instance, and following each of the clubs as they all fight it out for the GF. Either way, these type of streaming platforms should be approached and opportunities explored.
  14. Amazon r us.

    Amazon and Netflix should definitely be targeted. The only problem i see is content. We'd have to create new content for any new broadcaster as currently everything is pretty sewn up. Which is not a reason to not approach their like, we'd just need something new to approach with.
  15. Putting 2+2 together with the people most associated with RL. My shout is still Mark Evans. Who i think would be good. Another name to throw in to the ring could be Shane Richardson. Not sure what the Aussies posters on here think of him in his recent roles with the NRL and Souths, but someone with experience of the English game, and administration at a high level.
