  1. 2025 World Cup wont now be in the US: https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/us-world-cup-hosting-plans-torpedoed-by-money-trouble-20181204-p50k5p.html After the money issues regarding the Denver test this was inevitable really. The good thing about awarding this to the US early is that now there is still plenty of time for an aaternative to be sought.
  2. On the RFL website there is a vacancy for a Commercial Sales Manager. From the site The role will focus on the delivery of the sponsorship acquisition strategy for both the Rugby Football League and the Rugby League World Cup 2021. Its good that the RFL are looking at getting a sponsorship portfolio in place at this stage and shows good planning. However the salary is £40,000-£45,000 + performance related bonus structure and this seems very low for such an important position, unless the performance related structure is very appealing which I would doubt. I'd imagine that the RFL will struggle to get high calibre individuals to fill it, who could pay for themselves several times over: https://rfl.current-vacancies.com/Jobs/Advert/1444059?cid=1298&FromSearch=False
  3. Separate thread for the Sweepstake for FIFA 2018 World Cup (hope this is okay mods). Keeping it seperate from the other football threads for ease of organisation. Basically just let me know if you’re interested and we’ll take it from there. We ideally need 32 entries, but we could do 16 x 2 teams each.
  4. Looking back over the WC history, it's interesting to see how it has evolved, from a four nation event - when other nations could have been invited - to the competition it is today. A chart I put together showing the progress can be seen here: https://rugbyl.blogspot.co.nz/2017/12/wc-ranking-nations-1954-2017.html
  5. Eight have already qualified: Australia, England, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa and Lebanon, and they will be joined by eight others. Results in this World Cup showed that there's a significant drop in quality below these 8 countries except possibly for Ireland, and there's a further drop below the next 6 too. Consequently the groups will still have to based on rankings to avoid huge blowouts. I suggest a modified form of what we've had with 14 teams: one group where three teams advance to the quarter-finals, two where two teams advance and one where only one team advances, with the teams in each group based on rankings, as follows: Group A - three teams advance to quarter-finals Previous Winner, highest ranked previous Semi-finalist, highest ranked previous Quarter-final loser, highest ranked qualifier Group B - two teams advance to quarter-finals Other previous Semi-finalist, third highest ranked previous Quarter-final loser, fourth and fifth highest ranked qualifiers Group C - two teams advance to quarter-finals Previous Runner-up, second highest ranked previous Quarter-final loser, second and third highest ranked qualifiers Group D - one team advances to quarter-finals Lowest ranked previous Quarter-final loser, three lowest-ranked qualifiers The Quarter-finals use a bracket system, third from Group A shifts to the other bracket: Quarter-Finals A 1st Group A vs. 2nd Group B B 1st Group B vs. 2nd Group A C 1st Group C vs. 3rd Group A D 1st Group D vs. 2nd Group C Semi-Finals E Winner A vs. Winner B F Winner C vs. Winner D Final G Winner E vs. Winner F Thus now that we know where the eight automatic qualifiers finished this time the groups should be: Group A - three teams advance to quarter-finals Australia, Tonga, New Zealand, highest ranked qualifier Group B - two teams advance to quarter-finals Fiji, Samoa, fourth and fifth highest ranked qualifiers Group C - two teams advance to quarter-finals England, Papua New Guinea, second and third highest ranked qualifiers Group D - one team advances to quarter-finals Lebanon, three lowest-ranked qualifiers What does everyone think of this idea?
  6. James Roby was outstanding last night, rolling back the years. Given Daryl Clark's ordinary form again this year, is it possible Roby could make a late charge for inclusion in the World Cup squad?
  7. In July 2017, England Universities will take part in the Student Rugby League World Cup which takes place in Sydney, Australia. The team is made up of the best student Rugby League players in the country and participation in the squad is self-funded. Each player and member of the volunteer coaching and management team is responsible for raising money for themselves to cover UK-based training and friendly games, kit and equipment, flights, accommodation, travel, insurance and tournament participation fees. The whole squad will be working hard to fundraise the £110k needed for the trip through selling sponsorship, Community Game Raffle Tickets and staging events, but all donations will go a long way to reducing the cost of taking part in the tournament for the players. England Universities Head Coach, Colin Baker, said: "Please give generously and play your part in sending England Universities Rugby League Team to the Student Rugby League World Cup in 2017! "The student game has been a rich source of players for both the professional and regonal leagues and is one of the major recruitment areas into our game. "Anyone who witnessed the Student Rugby League World Cup in 2013 will know the quality of the competition and the importance of helping our England team as prepared as it can be!"

  11. http://leedsrugbyfoundation.org/news/21516.php#.Un4xIXdFApA You'll find this exhibition downstairs at the Town Hall. Not my thing by any means but certainly worth a look on your lunch break or if you're trying to keep yourself out the pub for half an hour while shopping. I think Along the Line was my favourite piece. Liked Held Up Short and Agony too.
  12. https://www.programmemaster.com/component/virtuemart/browse/132-rugby-league-world-cup-2013?TreeId=35&sef=hc Competiton to win a pair of tickets to the World Cup Final. Entry condition: buy a programme from that website.
  13. If you want to star in a video to promote the World Cup, that will include Bradley Wiggins, Jonny Brownlee and Darren Lockyer, then you have only got this weekend to submit your entry. Record a short video explaining why you will be at the Tournament and submit it to http://www.rlwc2013.com/bethere by Monday. Check out the existing videos there too. Also if you have not yet bought your tickets for the Final, now would be a good time to do so as the Early Birds Offer expires a week Sunday, after which the prices will go up. http://www.rlwc2013.com/tickets
