    The future of League One

    I would go with 12 team super league , 16 team championship . That leaves 9 teams in league I would then invite super league reserve teams in to the league to make up the numbers. So if 7 super league clubs could field reserve teams to make the league up to 16 . The super league teams wouldn't be allowed to get promoted though . Also bring back the cup comp for the championship and league one teams .

    London in Superleague

    Hopefully they can survive in Super League . I would also love to see the Skolars push on and hopefully get to championship level at least .

    UK SL Attendances 2018

    People keen saying get rid of Thursday night games but how much does Sky pay for that night? How many people love watching Thursday night games on the box. Does the money from tv out weigh the attendances ? I am going to put my head on the block and ask if Thursdays are worth a lot to sky and our Tv deal . Why not look at having a live Tv game on Wednesday nights as well ? All depending on what deal we could get . But with most super league teams now playing home games Friday nights why not look into it . Super live games Wednesday night and Thursday nights . Then rest of fixtures Friday nights with a soccer Saturday kind of programme to cover the four games.

    ‘League 1 South’

    I cant see the value of it . It would be park rugby . The Skolars are to important to our game to be put in a de valued league like that.

    MPG lineup Toronto v London

    The big question is which teams are better prepared for super league ? Plus what will happen to those clubs who miss out ?
  6. if they do go . Why not try and bring in two French teams ?

    West Wales Raiders

    Crusaders might not have any welsh players at moment but development with a good pathway is in place . As for Racecourse ground I was only saying Wales national team to play there. It wouldn't bother me where any team trains . You could have Deeside train at Warrington tapping into the rivalry between the Cheshire clubs. Its also true there's some good young players at West Wales but with no senior players there are been pushed into action far to early . I would have the two clubs I have said , then set up a joint Wales academy offering the young players at west Wales places and pathway.

    West Wales Raiders

    for me if Wales wants two semi pro teams they both need to be in North East Wales. Crusaders based at Wrexham and second team at Deeside. Both could tap into Cheshire for a few players . The game between the two would be a genuine derby. Make the Racecourse ground the national stadium of Wales Rugby League.

    Falling Gates in Rugby League

    for me there's just to many games. 30 plus games a season is to many. Match days and kick off times are all over the place to suit TV. The magic week end and summer bash also to me make the leagues unfair with so much to play for . Had there been no summer bash round would Leigh have qualified for middle 8s? Season should start March and end September. If super league clubs want more games make them play in earlier rounds of challenge cup again . Which can help lower teams finances.
  10. to me other than a few hundred supporter and Mark Aston , Sheffield doesn't want a rugby league team . Its a shame as fans and Mark plus a few others have worked so hard with this club .

    league one

    Having seen many one sided games in my time. Matches that just become a training session. I wonder how many fans go home happy and feeling they had value for money when watching there team put 100 plus points passed a hapless West Wales Raiders. Surly this cant go on as much as I would like to see a team in South Wales west Wales are obviously not up to the mark. This has to be the worst semi pro team of all time . Its making a mockery of club records . To me unless they can prove they have strengthened there squad they shouldn't be allowed to start next season .

    shaw lane fc

    obviously you haven't been to many grounds in championship or league one then . Wasn't talking about this man in general just the fact that if people are out there throwing millions at none league football clubs why cant the RL attract these people into our sport . I expect people in Manchester already travel the short distance to watch wigan , leigh , Salford , Swinton , Oldham and Rochdale but still plenty of people calling for a Manchester pro club.

    surely the aim is for the RL to seek a sell the sport to these people.

    shaw lane fc

    Just reading Shaw Lane FC from Barnsley have resign from football league tier 7 . The chairman who has spent over a million plus says he cant go on. Just thinking what he could have achieved if he had invested that sort of money in starting a rugby league team in Barnsley. To me Barnsley would had been a perfect area to grow our sport . Just on the edge of the west Yorkshire heartlands and close to Sheffield and Doncaster. Shaw lane little stadium would have been ok for league one or Dorothy Hyman stadium . Had they managed to get to super league Oakwell would have been a great addition to super league . There seem to be plenty of people out there investing money in none league football clubs where league teams already exist , why cant RL tap into these people and sell them the dream of running a rugby league club instead ? Does the RL ever hold conference days where they invite business people to come and see what RL has to them and the area where live.

    I think several people here are missing the points. Its not about how bigger crowds London teams can get although it does help. Its about Tv revenues would we be able to sell our game more around the world if we had London teams in our competition . Would we be able to market our league better down under if the Aussies and Kiwis had some interest. By giving teams named after them I think so . Tv money is running our game just like every other sport we need to explore every avenue to maximise our influx of Tv deals.
