    Will Odsal ever get redeveloped?

    Not sure why, it's well signposted off the M62
  3. I would also like to know who speaks English best?
  4. There was a rapturous celebration at St Elizabeth’s BB Coke High School after their U19s became the first rural school to capture the Jamaica High School Rugby League Championship. The players were feted by hundreds of students and teachers as their boys returned with the silverware, following an 18-10 victory over fellow first time finalists, Old Harbour High in the Grand Final at Campion College.
  5. Coca-Cola Papua New Guinea Limited today signed a five (5) year agreement with the Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL) as Naming Rights sponsors of the National Schools Rugby League (NSRL) competition in PNG.

    African Developments The inaugural Cameroon Rugby League XIII champions have been crowned at the end of the opening season after Black Boys De Douala defeated Taureau RL 10-0 in the men’s Grand Final, and Rock defeated Raiders 4-0 in the women’s. Five sides took part in the men’s competition; Petou RL, De Nyeté and Bandjoun RL the others’ “This rewarding season has given us a positive balance of how to structure clubs, learn and improve our technical skills and administration,” said Carol Manga, CRL XIII general and development manager. “Rugby League is a social integration platform for young people in Cameroon and we cannot thank enough the players, volunteers, club officials, coaches, referees and all the board members of the Cameroon Rugby League XIII for getting us off the ground,” he added. “Our sincere thanks also go to the UCB Group - Union Camerounaise Des Breweries - for their support.
  7. Do you feel the players have a great enough say in the running of the game in the UK and how do you think the game can better market itself to the wider audience?
  8. Did you notice any significant differences in coaching setups in Australia and England and is there anything that clubs in England should look at adopting?
  9. If you were Prime Minister for the day, what is the first thing you'd change?
  10. What do you feel is your best position and do you think you will naturally develop into a centre?
  11. I'd hazard a guess that this won't make the cut
  12. Looks that way...................are they playing an extended season? Hopefully it's just a stepping stone to a better structured, longer and competitive season in 2020

    Catalans vs Perpignan.

    I think you’re being generous

    Australian schoolboys UK tour

    You only have to look at the number of those in the 2016 team that are still on the fringes or yet to break through, yet some think if they haven't made it at 19 then they should be ditched from the professional game. And these are the cream of the crop from the age group!!!

    Australian schoolboys UK tour

    Interesting to note England's 2016 Academy side which went to Australia. They had reasonably high hopes, certainly of putting up a competitive show but performed poorly and were thumped in both games. England Academy 24-man squad (professional club and community club in brackets): Caine Barnes (Wigan Warriors, Seaton Rangers) James Batchelor (Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Oulton Raiders) Matthew Costello (St Helens, Orrell St James) Matthew English (Huddersfield Giants, Stanley Rangers) Rob Fairclough (St Helens, Blackbrook Royals) Owen Farnworth (Widnes Vikings, Chorley Panthers) Callum Field (Wigan Warriors, Stanley Rangers) Conor Fitzsimmons (Castleford Tigers, Seaton Rangers) Josh Ganson (Wigan Warriors, Blackbrook Royals) Lewis Heckford (Wigan Warriors, Stanley Rangers) Ryan Jones (Leeds Rhinos, Oulton Raiders) Jez Litten (City of Hull Academy, West Hull) Judah Mazive (Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Oulton Raiders) Craig Mullen (Wigan Warriors, Blackbrook Royals) Will Oakes (City of Hull Academy, Eastmoor Dragons) Mikolaj Oledzki (Leeds Rhinos, Hunslet Warriors) Liam Paisley (Wigan Warriors, Dalton) Cameron Smith (Leeds Rhinos, Castleford Panthers) Morgan Smith (Warrington Wolves, Stanley Rangers) Brad Walker (Widnes Vikings, Askam) Danny Walker (Widnes Vikings, Crosfields) Liam Walsh (Widnes Vikings, Halton and Farnworth Hornets) Joe Wardill (City of Hull Academy, Beverley Braves) Jack Wells (Wigan Warriors, Folly Lane) Australia's side had the likes of Nic Cotric, Zac Lomax, Payne Haas, Campbell Graham, Lachlan Lam and Sean O'Sullivan. That England side looked strong in the forwards but perhaps lacking the ability in the back line that the current line up has
