    Neutral Referees for Internationals

    There are completely neutral referees for the 2018 European Championships and a very diverse range of officials from 7 or 8 countries: https://www.rlef.eu.com/articles/1653/rlef-celebrates-most-diverse-ever-match-official-appointments-for-european-championship

    Dublin - travel advice

    If you are flying back after the game, walk over to the Crowne Plaza (3 mins from hotel) and get the free hotel courtesy bus back to the airport! Takes 15 mins and runs every hour and half hour.

    Hemel prop scores stunning length-of-the-field try

    He's been immense for Loughborough Uni and England Students. A Devon lad... breaking the mould!

    So wrong Jim. Cov and West Wales have lots of local lads. In fact Cov's squad has 11 lads playing Student RL in the region many of whom are fully paid up southerners. As for Hemel, Sheffield isnt on the M62

    They should have continued!
  12. Ps. Great to see the tour going!
  13. I dont get why you're taking a referee when Italy has more than competent officials developing under the RLEF's tutelage?

    And at least one of those shoukd have gone into CLS at its inception rather than being a big fish in a small pond.
  15. In 2007, all 17 secondary schools in Doncaster played Rugby... either Union via the Knights or League via the Lakers. The primary schools for each secondary family also followed suit. It was about a 60/40 split in Union's favour. The great thing about it was that EVERY primary school played Tag at Years 5 and 6 and the Knights and Lakers ran a joint programme of competition accross Doncaster. The two school sports partnerships provided £20k to the two clubs to make it work. Community RL Coaches didnt appear until late in 2009 in Yorkshire. Arguably they were never needed in the schools in Doncaster.
