  1. Exactly my thoughts too David. Clyde wasn't anything like the player he was at Canberra when he played in the UK. Neither was the world's greatest full back.

    You’ve done it now Rev. You’ve opened the box for the Samantha Janus comments to be released.
  10. A similar scenario unfolded in France in the 1950s when the governing body failed to embrace television. It was a a slippery slope downhill for years after that decision.

    Millom Preparing for Historic Red Star Visit
  16. The world’s oldest Rugby League club, Millom RLFC, are gearing up for one of the biggest game’s of their history this Sunday, as they host Red Star Belgrade. Red Star were inducted into the Challenge Cup ahead of 2019, with the game set to be live streamed on the BBC Sport website. Millom, who were formed in 1873, will be the first ever cup opponents for Red Star, who are affiliated with their European Cup winning football counterparts. “We were a bit unsure about entering this year’s competition with the number of fixtures increasing in our league, but when you get a draw like this, there is no doubt everyone should want to enter into the Challenge Cup,” said Millom RLFC coach Tim Sibley. “I was lucky enough to tour Serbia with England Lion hearts in 2006 and the people made us very welcome and Belgrade was a great place to visit. Everyone involved in rugby will be looking at this game and it will be good to see how far the domestic game has developed in Serbia.” Last season saw Millom finish third in the NCL division three, the seventh tier of the English pyramid, while Red Star finished a perfect season by winning the Balkan Super League, Serbian Championship and Serbian Cup. And the ambitious Serbian club, are set to begin life in the Challenge Cup, in the mining town of Millom, Cumbria. With a population of under 6,000 people, and located to the North of Barrow, Rugby League is, unsurprisingly, well-knitted into the community. “The Millom Community suffered severe flooding to several areas of the town, This caused major disruption and heartache for many to our small but close knit town,” explained Angela Dixon, deputy mayor of Millom. “The lads from the Rugby young and old, all turned up to help the unfortunate victims with the clean-up, They are a fantastic bunch, nothing is too much of a problem. Millom would not be Millom with this kind of community spirit. In the opposite camp, Red Star Belgrade, who have made no secret their ambitions of joining League 1 in the future, are relishing the opportunity to showcase themselves to the British public. “We are absolutely honoured to play our first ever Challenge Cup match at the home of the world’s oldest amateur rugby league team, Millom RLFC,” said owner Colin Klewyeg. “This opportunity connects us to the heartlands of the game which is where we want to be. There are a number of Serbian international players who will be making this trip to Millom and this will be arguably in their top three experiences in international rugby league.”
  17. The RFL have announced today, at the ongoing Championship and League 1 launch, that Sky Sports will cover the Championship play-offs, as well as Toronto Wolfpack’s home and away matches ahead of the new campaign. In addition OuRLeague app will also be screening Championship and League 1 Women’s fixtures, which will be one per week. The Sky deal with Toronto, which was reached after discussions between the RFL and Sky during 2018, will also include distribution to Canada and around the world, as Rugby League seeks to expand its global footprint, with the full details of the contract set to be confirmed in the coming weeks. “We have invested significantly in our broadcast for the last two seasons, culminating in our 2018 postseason games reaching 140 million homes in 19 countries worldwide.,” said Brian Noble MBE, Toronto Wolfpack Director of Rugby. “We are extremely grateful to both Sky Sports and the RFL for sharing our vision to grow our game globally in 2019, and thank both for their efforts building this opportunity.” In addition to live coverage of the Wolfpack’s fixtures both home and away, Sky will also be showing games from the Betfred Championship play-offs, namely the newly reinstated Championship play-off final, which which still retain the name ‘Million Pound Game’ but will now feature the top two sides from the Championship as opposed any Super League sides like in previous editions, as part of the competition restructure. “We saw with the reaction to Sky’s live coverage of the £1M Game between the Wolfpack and London Broncos in Toronto last autumn what a massive boost that was to the profile of the Betfred Championship,” added Mark Foster, who heads the RFL’s commercial department.. “This couldn’t have happened without the co-operation and support of Sky Sports and Toronto Wolfpack and we wish to thank both organisations for helping us to broadcast in the UK and around the world what will be a fantastic Championship as well as League One in 2019.” In addition, at least one fixture per week will be shown through the RFL’s OuRLeague app in 2019, which will include the Betfred Championship, League One, Coral Challenge Cup, Coral Women’s Challenge Cup, 1895 Cup and Women’s Super League.
  18. True but who knows how and why Sky only chose to televise TWP? At least there will be a continuation of TWP's games being televised and the OL app means there's going to be quite a few weeks where two Championship games are available.
  19. You need to download the app to your mobile phone or tablet and then when a match is on you can cast it to your main TV, providing the TV is capable of course.
  20. The way it reads TWP will be on Sky while the OL app will carry another game so there will be times when two Championship games are broadcast on the same weekend.
