  3. My issue is the politics that prevents the volunteers getting things done. Then when they are successful we have the RLEF and RLIF claiming its Viking Harvest. We need to find a Robert Burgin style character in Europe in my opinion. Professional and passionate.
  4. I think the civil service is a good analogy. Listening to Robert Elstone on radio 5 it was nice to hear someone like him talk with a sense of vision, balance and energy.
  5. What worries me is the decline in real terms of Rugby League activity across Europe. Around 2014 it looked pretty promising. Most of the growth has come in places like Turkey which has occurred independently. We definitely need a credible RLEF in Europe and yes that has been accomplished, this has helped prevent the dirty tricks union previously employed. But successfully applying for EU funds as a professional sports administrator shouldn't qualify you for the noble peace prize. We seem to be distracted from the fact we need a level of pragmatic leadership to ensure the whole project does not collapse.
  6. If you want to get anything real done you need step outside of the politics. Thats the issue not enough real work is being done. Everything is too managerial and political. What we need is practical leadership. Someone needs to help them get kit and players, promote themselves. Organise small sided games. Figure out how to overcome local challenges. Assist them with admin. Get them talking to the rest of the rugby league community. Get them getting the most out of social media. Not be scared to get volunteers involved to help assist them. Get uk teams playing in europe more.
  7. Take it your RFL, in which case your illustrating a nice point.

    A lot of the super league academies pick from Oldham its a hot bed of talent. But your right in your point they can pick from Super League academies. I wouldn't separate the amateur clubs from academies they have an interwoven relationship.
  10. lol, trust me If you want to develop rugby league in Europe your better on the outside.
  11. Nigel must have wanted someone equal to his abilities.

    Manchester Rangers kit goes to Poland.

    The biggest positive of this was the Polish Consulate re-tweeting this and giving a message a support to both parties.
