  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p06qvvxl/rugby-league-2018-england-v-new-zealand-forum Rimmer 26 minutes in.
  2. I'm very pleased Graham has been made Captain for the second test. Well deserve, if anyone has put their body on the line for England over the years it is James Graham. And in his home town.

    Grand Final Crowd

    I agree with Dave T and Thirteenthman it must put many people off going. I went with my little lad and bought tickets months in advance to get seats at the end of a row in the "family" section which I thought would offer the best chance of avoiding drunken yobs. In the event I was surprised how few families there were. I was sat next to two blokes who were completely legless falling on top of the people in the row in front every time they stood up. They barely watched the game preferring to f and blind to all around them about the state of the game ( oh the irony ). And would n't you know it a fight broke out in the aisle right next to my lad and in front of the stewards who did nothing. All this grief in the "family" section !!! None of this will stop me going again but sadly I can no longer recommend it to friends or family. There is no point in the game trying to attract a new audience until it has cleaned up it's act or most newcomers will never return.

    What now for Toronto?

    But there will in all likelihood be clauses. NRL teams are forever losing sponsors through contract clauses.

    What now for Toronto?

    Argyle now has to persuade Transat to keep the faith and continue to transport teams and officials for free for at least another year until the 15,000 traveling Super League fans that he predicted arrive to provide a return on their investment. Transat are a big part of the jigsaw, hopefully they will hang in there.
  6. In that interview he says he wants Toronto games accessible for people to watch in "Latin America, Africa and most importantly China." He is constantly pushing boundaries and seems determined to take the game out of it's box. Interesting times ahead.

    New $250,000 NRL Logo

    NRL’S $250K SPLURGE TO REMOVE LOGO’S AUSSIE LINKS THE NRL has outlaid massive money on a rebrand for an updated logo which is even simpler than the last one. The main change mark the game’s attempt to move away from the current logo’s Australian links by removing the iconic Southern Cross. nymouhttps://myaccount.news.com.au/sites/dailytelegraph/subscribe.html?sourceCode=DTWEB_WRE170_a_GGL&mode=premium&dest=https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/nrls-250000-splurge-to-remove-australian-links-from-game-logo/news-story/e6c57a8cff5abb89ae38d1b2c14741a6?memtype=anos
  8. That's not much different to the old one. Money well spent?

  10. With used paperback copies changing hands on ebay for £50 a reprint is long overdue. Thanks for looking into it John

    Bravo BBC

    I’m guessing we have a lot to thank Dave Woods for todays emphasise on the shocking history of French RL. Bringing this to the attention of a wider audience is something he would relish and shows how important his appointment as the BBC’s first full time RL correspondent has been
  12. Hoping for a draw. I want rovers to stay up and TWP to go up. 10 mins in and still waiting for Radio Humberside to get their live stream working, They are just playing dire music at the moment

    RL Backchat - sublime to ridiculous?

    I have watched all of this series and enjoyed the majority of them. Unfortunately this episode fell short. The only panelist that I learned anything new from this week was the former Cronulla Sharks chairman. Having them all talk over each other was not a good look. The first topic being the qualifies should have ignited the interest from the off, but when Danny Lockwood was asked "if his pulse had been racing with excitement" by the comp he answered with a big fat "No" and proceeded to talk it down. For a lot of people it promises to be the most fascinating relegation/promotion battle for years. Talk about talking the sport down ! Danny is a promoters worst nightmare. With friends like Danny who needs.....
  14. Yes a good news story! To be matched by another £10million from the game to be spent on community clubs. Total £20 Million. Although only to be spent on infrastructure, unfortunately nothing to be spent on developement Officers, but still a good news story. So there will be a lots of new shiny artificial pitches and clubhouses which should help pull in new players and might generate income for the clubs. This money is in addition to the £15 million the Government is giving to help with the staging of the World Cup. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/44848144 https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06dwjnr#play
