  1. winter league

    AS well as the current leagues. Some players may chose to double up , but plenty of players may chose to play winter rugby rather than summer freeing up more family time for summer hols ect
  2. Is there room for an eight team city winter league on a semi pro basis ? Starting in October running through till end of March with a three week break over Christmas and new year. That gives you 23 weeks for fixtures. Each team plays each other three times for 21 games top four make play off semis 1st v 4th 2nd v 3rd . Final to be played at who ever finishes highest that qualifies through semis. It could be away to help expand our game 8 teams from cities like Leeds, Manchester , Bradford , Hull , Liverpool , Sheffield, Cardiff , London . Maybe in time then form a second division .
  3. if we had three up three down between super league and championship , you might get more people willing to invest in championship clubs hence bring more money into the game . In early 90s there were some very big attendances in the old division two with just two up two down , I think teams like Halifax, Hull KR and Oldham all averaged over 5,000 . I remember 9,000 watching league two game between Huddersfield and Halifax. Then 8,000 at Rochdale v Oldham in Rochdale's promotion season . Maybe we license the top two leagues.
  4. barrow

    I think the rams will be ok they looked to have made a few good signings if player keep injury free they will be mid table .
  5. Reserve and Academy teams

    If we had a reasonable reserve league , then teams looking to join our league teams like Bristol for example could play first season in reserve grade to help them get established and up to speed but joining league .
  6. Kato Ottio

    Very sad news , hope Widnes retire his shirt number as a lasting mark of respect.
  7. v salford

    Will Swinton be selling merchandise at the friendly against Salford ? I think it could be a good idea if they can get some stuff there to sell at the game .
  8. Sheffield went full time and finished below part timers so why cant london
  9. Looking forward to this one . A great traditional derby . Would love to see this fixture a regular in the super league calendar . I think Salford would benefit so much having Swinton in same league competing against them . I'm not saying its as bigger a derby as Wigan / Saints but when you look how those two team drive each other on in the battle to be beat or better there rivals , just like the two Hull clubs. Hope plenty turn out for this great fixture full of history and tradition between these two great clubs.
  10. League Restructure 2019

    Sport in our country is based mainly on history and traditions , so here's a crazy idea why not take the 8 most successful teams from Yorkshire or east of Pennines and the eight most successful teams for Lancashire/Cumbria or west of the Pennines to form one league of 16 . Play 26 weekly rounds top 8 for championship play offs . The 16 alone compete in Challenge Cup . Bring back the county Cups as midweek cup comps. Also bring back county league titles for teams who finish highest in league involving the 14 county games mixed in championship.
  11. scrumdown

    hull could have gone down if they lost by more than 80 points in last game at home to Castleford so was unlikely but not mathematically impossible
  12. barrow

    I do hope Barrow stay up this season , but its a big ask . If they can stay who's else is going to be relegated ?
  13. League Restructure 2019

    here's an interesting thought had super league pulled up the draw bridge when first formed , there would have been no teams from Hull , no Wakefield , no Widnes , no Catalan , no Huddersfield and no Salford in it now. Every team has its ups and downs that's what make sport so exciting and challenging.
  14. scrumdown

    Was watching old clips of scrumdown on youtube some great classic games and some fantastic players and character coaches. I think ITV could have the makings of a good programme bit like the footy one they did called your match revisited. Show clips of old games and some of the character who played or coached in them talking about it . When we talk now about competitive leagues what as season 1991-92 I think it was when Featherstone went down with 22 points from 26 games while two or three others stayed up on same points. There's a few Hull derbies on there as well as the Eagles beating then world champions Widnes at Bramall lane. The BBC could also look at doing a programme about each year of challenge cup again showing highlights of rounds and then the final as well again having old players and coaches talking about it .
  15. did you manage to offload your programmes if you still have them I'm interested .
