  1. For those that could not make it a great game of RL with the Combined Services being deserved 32-22 winners I must say a game of good quality RL after having to put together teams on the day a healthy crowd raising some good revenue for a fantastic charity ”Hull and district Help for Hero’s” What I thought fantastic 54 homes being built for ex servicemen spending money on our own!! makes a change

    Rugby Leagues 7 year plan

    That’s the thing you look at most things, participation, revenue, sky figures are all down as well as the ones mentioned. We have a professional document like this which realistically is a business plan and we get no comments from the RFL. If Mr Rimmer is going to blame Mr Wood you think he would be doing it now and trying to resolve the failings before it is too late, keep going like we are and there won’t be a game
  6. We are well into the RL’s 7 year plan looking at the numerous topics on here where does everyone think the game is, IMO the game is falling behind many of its objectives I suppose Nigel Wood will get the blame and will it just be brushed under the carpet? http://media.rugby-league.com/docs/RFL-Rugby%20League%20Strategic%20Plan%202014-2021.pdf

    End of season play offs

    Went to watch the WH v Egremont game as a neutral, what a great game could have gone either way, WH slightly edged it

    I suspect you will only hear something if there is any good news, the reality won’t be mentioned or any solution to put it right, I did see a comment when the NWC 16-18 were looking at their issues and a way to resolve it someone well respected in amateur circles actually asked if it had been done and he heads up a league, I would have thought one of the first to be consulted

    The 16-18 age group is in dire straights IMO as important as OA, a review was promised a long time ago but nothing has actually happened. The other problem is social media, the RFL send out the survey we have forwarded on to all the OA players I would think not one will complete the survey. When signing on all contact details are taken, a nice e mail with the survey to individuals may have been better, so to answer your question it will be a paper exercise imo

    Youth

    I agree they have played 1st grade but at what expense to the amateur club where they all came from, has their original team folded as they can no longer raise a team. New tracksuit for 2-3 players can mean no team for 17-20 ex teammates
