  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 2018 Kits

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

    Tragic news. RIP Kato

  6. 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.
  7. Carcassonne v Limoux Streaming

    Just seen on Facebook game cancelled due to severe weather.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Woods gone

    Anywhere else in life you'd expect it.. not necessarily in RL though..
  12. Woods gone

    You'd imagine a position of this importance would have a quite lengthy notice period, so if he's leaving at the end of the month it should have been known some months back and the task of replacing him well under way.
  13. Woods gone

    Brian Barwick comes in for a lot of criticism on here, and i have participated in that on a few occassions, but i've heard from a couple of different and respected sources from within the game that say he is a good administrator, and that maybe his opportunity to make an impression has been blocked/thwarted by the guy whose now leaving.
  14. Woods gone

    Good news if true. Not sure if its possible or not, as he's currently SL CEO, but i'd imagine Roger Draper will be eyeing the top job.. One name i'd like to throw into the mix, who i think would be a good option, and thats Mark Evans. Former CEO of Harlequins RU and Melbourne Storm. Who did some great work at both clubs and seems to be the kind of guy who gets things done.
  15. Only in RL does such continued dilly-dally take place. its pathetic.
