  1. Would like to see a western Mediterranean SL like the Balkan version. Teams from Spain, France, Italy and maybe Malta. Could even look to include Morrocan teams at some point
  2. It would be good if this could be emulated here. There's lots of African communities in the UK
  3. I like this as an idea even if they all don't come over. The other home nations could play as well as England
  4. It may be an England international who is already playing in the NRL. Graham, a Burgess, Hodgson?
  5. Mine is very similar but I went for Bradford instead of Leigh
  6. With all the hype surrounding the new season with the change in structure and rule changes have clubs seen an uptake in season ticket sales compared to last season. Would be interested to see how clubs are doing
  7. Although I do like the media coverage and new fans TWP have brought to the game I'd prefer a strong 2nd club in London and hopefully lots of investment in the community game. If Broncos and Skolars can grow then I think it could be a massive boost to the game here and would add more to the TV deal, increase media coverage and sponsorship and hopefully boost playing numbers. More so than TWP imo
  8. Thanks for that. How long has he been in Australia?
  9. Ive always enjoyed watching the Broncos but I tend to be more interested in the teams with the English players now. I read on here that a young English lad is on the fringes of the Broncos squad

    Thunder developing on and off the field

    As much as I like hearing about professional clubs starting in new places this is the kind of expansion I prefer. New (ish) areas expanding the amount of community clubs and schools playing the game.
  11. How many community clubs does Liverpool currently have? Places like Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, Chester etc are all well placed to help expand the junior and community game
  12. Hopefully more and more PNG players will play in Australia and UK at SL and NRL level as well as Championship and Queensland Cup/NSW competition.
  13. I'm going for Charnley. He knows where the line is and if he gets good service and stays fit I think he will score a lot of tries

    African Developments

    I wonder if they could get Offiah involved in some capacity even if it was just to get publicity
  15. I think it needs building into the equivalent of the NCL for the South. These clubs should build up a strong a base of juniors as possible and hopefully this league can expand in time. A bottom up approach should be taken with regionalised leagues underneath expanding first and adding new teams then if any team meets the criteria they can apply
  16. Are there direct flights to Perth? I'm sure there's one from London to Sydney which takes about 20 hours. Perth would be about 16/17 hours direct

    Australian schoolboys UK tour

    I was thinking something similar. What are Wales like at this age group?
  18. JM2010

    War of the Roses coming back?

    Isn't the North West an official region of England as well as Yorkshire and the Humber?
  19. Why couldn't the RFL start selling tickets in France and even in Canada now and advertise it a a must see event regardless of who gets there. They may get a few thousand who want to go even if their team doesn't make it. They should set themselves a target for ticket sales before the finalists are known. If they can sell a good number more people would probably want to go as it becomes a bigger event and there may even be s rush for tickets after the semis
  20. There needs to be some kind of pyramid below the Southern Premier getting more regionalised the further down the pyramid it goes. This would require more teams to be created but would help expand the game in the south
  21. I think next year's SL is going to be an exciting season with quite a few teams capable of winning the title. I can't quite decide on exact positions but this is my vague prediction. Top 3 - Leeds, St Helens and Warrington in no particular order Catalans and Wigan to make the top 5. Huddersfield, Wakefield, Hull and Castleford to compete for 5th but miss out Bottom 3 - Salford, Hull KR and London with London finishing bottom

    SL predictions

    Ha, might be over estimating them but with a fully fit squad I think they'll go well
  23. I was thinking something similar but on a grassroots level. Could this link up be used to start some junior clubs and maybe get into a few schools
  24. I think there's enough good players to send a good squad excluding players in the GF. There's also the NRL players
  25. If the Dragons can make this an annual event at the same time each year but maybe play different teams then it could be built into a massive event. It would attract fans, neutrals and locals
