    Super league minimum ground criteria

    Just sounds like more lip service to be honest. They were saying the exact same thing this time last year! Its just literally a cage, a 3g pitch and a tent with some seats. That is their "stadium" I really hope they do get it sorted though. Such a shame the club couldnt capitalise on winning the cup in 98. They have had a nomadic existence in recent years too so at least they are back in their city on the grounds of their spiritual home

    How many does the Main Stand at Wheldon Rd hold? Its the same how Swinton had to move from Segeley Park RU which is nearer to Swinton and a lot cheaper in rent due to falling short by 300 or so seats. (Apparently championship is min 3000 with 750 seated).......... Yet Sheffield are allowed to play on a college pitch with a flimsy nothing but 300 capacity golf tent stand 20 metres from the touchline. Loads of lip service about Olympic Legacy Park....but nothing actually happening! I remember Leigh had to squeeze some more seats into the Tommy Sale stand when they were at Hilton Park. They had more seats than Cas in the first place. This isnt a dig on Cas by the way. Wheldon Rd is brilliant, proper RL ground full of character and atmosphere! Love it.... Just more that whole British RL ethos is just makes it up as you go along!

    UK RL desperately needs a Manchester club

    You had the massive advantage over Swinton of having a full time squad in the Championship due to the deep pockets of one man. Otherwise you'd be pretty much in the same boat. Swinton and Pendlebury has a population of 22,000 and play 10 miles out of that town. It's a miracle that club are still going! Honestly think when they move back to the area (Agecroft) that they will get crowds similar to Londons(they aren't far off now) and that is a club thats main ambition is to be competitive and self sustainable ala Batley/Dewsbury. When have London ever been close to being self sustainable?

    RFL KPI's to receive central funding

    The Our League app is absolutely atrocious. I have absolutely no cause to ever use/look at it! Updates after every other media outlet. Very limited content and thats without mentioning the England V France debacle. The RFLs online content etc is years and years behind.

    What shape will Leigh be in next year?

    Who are the players? I believe one is Jamie Acton. Silly Billy Beaumont

    Job is too big for Rimmer?

    I'm an Everton fan and Elstone was absolutely useless. All talk about what we need to do. The kit/sponsorship deal he got for everton was laughable. Fans rejoiced when he went.

    swinton v salford

    Moving back to M27 will be massive for the club. The fact that they merely exist is credit to them after nearly 3 decades of being nomads and poorly run!
