  1. This thread has become like Chinese whispers. Field lines to which form of hockey is the most interesting. You couldn' make it up. 🤣
  2. Yes, they'e promoting it on the angle to attract grid iron fans it seems, but the the bigger picture is that most don' know there is a difference between both rugby codes. That's my point. A boring RU game won't inspire neutral fans to come to watch another Rugby game no matter what form it is. Educating the non Rugby aficionados that there is a different type of sport but that's similar to gridiron, can maybe bring the neutral and the curious to watch this RL international.
  3. There's every reason why it would. A dull boring union game won't inspire speccies to return no matter what form of rugby is being played.
  4. Lets hope the inferior form of rugby doesn't bore the pants off the speccies enough so that they abandon any thought of returning a week later.

  6. Sadly, he's still on thr RLIF board. Need to get rid full stop.
  7. If the kiwis don' fancy it, then have an England v American/Canadian select 13 and play it in Toronto

    World Cup Crowds

    Lets just face it, Aussies haven't and never will support international RL. I wouldn't hold another World Cup there again. They don't deserve it tbh

    right this is it

    Pity it's not a full house. COME ON ENGLAND
  10. Should England get to the final, will Prince Harry make an appearance? Be good to see our RFL patron endorsing RL to the World. Be even better if he handed the cup to SB
  11. Yes, they should, but working side by side helping each other in order that the development of the game is preserved. Not aiding the game at grass roots level is suicide
  12. Its not a threat, just a deal maker. Why wouldn't you want your domestic comp to survive? All that hard work swept under the carpet? I can't for the life of me see that this is a threat
  13. I would ensure that as part of acceptance, the RFL must insist that the USARL domestic comp is not left to rot and is looked after with sponsorship deals?

    Toronto v Oxford

    That's the spirit

    Toronto v Oxford

    Nah, if the TW were getting a battering, that would be more damaging

    Toronto v Oxford

    Glad Oxford have gone over, even though it's way one sided. Cant believe some are whinging about the size of thr crowd. I think it's a cracking crowd considering we're a new sport there and the poor weather. Toronto v Oxford. Who'd have thought this fixture would have existed 5 yrs ago?
  17. Kiwis getting a pasting 22-0 with a kick to come
  18. http://www.walesrugbyleague.co.uk/article/15078/ Good stuff happening down in Wales
  19. Maybe for the next 2 years, the magic weekend should be nines. Make a sense as it'll give us time to prepare and get used to the concept

    Strike While the BBC Iron is Hot

    Dunno, but the Toronto Siddal game will be televised http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/39019432
  21. The more the merrier for me. I can't see how expanding from the so called heartlands can be a negative thing. As with dividing the money out, it's up to the RFL to get their finger out and sell the sport to potential sponsors
  22. Good stuff. Good luck to you all there in Llanelli, I hope it all bears well, You're a credit to the sport on a cynical note, your quote- "hopefully it won’t be long before the RFL takes notice as there are teams all over the UK that want to help develop the sport outside of the so-called heartlands". I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.
