  14. +1 as i work shifts and know i cant make every home game
  15. a website that is run by the RFL and lucky that its updated properly.... And yes i do know what is happening in the midlands and you are getting info of someone who hasn't really got a clue whats going on except with Coventry Bears maybe as that is who he goes watches and he has posted a few things in the community forum which were totally wrong.which he has had to be corrected on but what do i know about RL in the midlands as only been secretary for last 12 years of one of the midlands clubs and yes it has been a struggle at times and wonder if we are going to survive ... completion rate of my own club has been over 98% for last 3 seasons at open age... well over 60 juniors from u-7 to u16 training every sunday during the summer , a successful touch and pass session run every wednesday night all year catering for all ages and genders ( good bit is that its funded by RFU as a joint initative with our host club ... a masters team that has been running for 2 years now allowing us oldies past our best to be able to play this great game... have 8 qulaified level 2 coaches ..... not saying that everything is rosy in the garden but looking a lot better than it did a few years ago and i know several midlands clubs are in the same position ... but i know nowt No one is saying pump thosands of £'s into the area, but having a showcase game in the area may help in creating interest in the sport and since saturdays game i have had 4 emails re wanting to try the game 2 from parents re kids and 2 adults wanting to try the game after watching games at cov.. so it has created interest no idea about the other midlands clubs but little acorns etc
