    Thomas Minns Drug Test fail

    I don't know him personally, so I can't say. My point is the hypocrisy behind it all. Why are some people given 2 year bans while others are only given a slap on the wrist? If it's so serious and performance enhancing, it should be the same punishment for all.
  2. What a silly idea that would be to take the cup final away from Wembley.

    South Carolina to Host USA Nines

    The most encouraging thing in all this is the high school and women's teams taking part. About time too!

    Thomas Minns Drug Test fail

    BBC said he's back available in July 2019. I feel for him given why he took it. I don't think it should be treated the same way as someone who took steroids, EPO, HGH etc.

    Thunder developing on and off the field

    Excellent stuff, well done Thunder. Hope they can get promoted this season.
  6. Absolutely ridiculous. What's to say a London v Salford final might not happen? 😂 What's their contingency plan then?

    New York RL - The Full 80 Minutes

    I think it is unfair to expect Toronto to be full of homegrown players already, given how long it takes to develop them. However, that said what are they doing to build foundations for the future? There's been no youth activity or school clinics in an attempt to start anything or gauge any interest. I don't agree with their 'rugby is rugby' motto, because I fail to see how Canadians only playing union and not league helps league in any way. Surely with open pockets they could run a few taster sessions with middle, high and elementary students over the summer? Also it looks like last tackle was a one off, so how do they expect to find North American talent then? I think if McDermott had arrived sooner, Ngawati would have got more opportunities but now he's lost to the sport.

    Jamaica in the sun

    They've had a few RL articles in The Voice newspaper, a paper aimed at the Afro-Caribbean population in London and a few about the Jamaica team. They'd definitely be a good target for the RLWC to raise awareness.

    Jamaica in the sun

    Come on, we all know that's far too sensible for the RFL.

    Logical internationals next year

    There's really no excuses for why Jamaica can't play France and Wales, even England next year. Let's be honest all the players will be England based anyway, so it's not like it will be too costly.

    Great Britain Origin Series - West vs East

    The only thing that would draw interest would be north v south as that's the only 'rivalry' of note in this country. Unfortunately we would get our butt kicked comfortably at the moment, so maybe in 5/10 years we would be in a better position. Perhaps we could trial it at yoof level somehow first?

    Anyone else excited about the Jamaica game?

    Well done Jamaica and Romeo, who has worked tirelessly for the last decade with next to no funding. I think they will be very popular, so hopefully they will play games in places with large Jamaican diaspora like London and Leeds. Hopefully this will grow the sport massively in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean and help the commonwealth games bid. Hopefully the US qualify through the repechage tournament next year.

    NZ Test Series - ticket sales

    I agree. This series was sold to the usual audience, rather than trying to attract newbies and interested observers. Whenever I go to tests in London, I can tell a lot are new to RL or are not regular attendees. Especially if they want huge crowds for the WC, the RFL need to start attracting neutrals to internationals, rather than relying on the same fans all the time.
