Rugby League Future?

28 posts in this topic

I'm from a non-RL area and I've only just started watching Rugby (Widnes). This all came about due to the 'Extraordinary Rugby League' campaign catching my attention last year, and although my knowledge of the game and assessment is poor, I'm absolutely loving attending games.

I see a lot of negativity and doom and gloom on this message board, as though everything's about co collapse, but isn't every sport suffering at the moment? Exposure is definitely what RL needs! With good advertising like the campaign I mentioned, and what's happening at Salford, it can only add to more intrigue and interest.

There are many disenfranchised soccer fans and potential rugby fans within a few miles of some great clubs in the North of England, these need to be tapped into and existing clubs made stronger. This crusade to promote the game throughout Europe shouldn't come at the expense of existing clubs, and if for now the sport is Heartlands based, is this such a bad thing?

I certainly think the sport will continue to grow, with Dr Koukash being at the forefront keeping everyone on their toes.

Top first post, welcome on board. And welcome to the game.

Good stuff. Not too late to switch away from Widnes...

Welcome to rugby league. It's not supposed to be fun.

The only person Dr Koukash is keeping on his toes at the moment is his bank manager.

Firstly, welcome aboard!

Secondly, a little more experience of this and other RL forums will reveal to you the almost pathological desire of certain Rugby League fans to accentuate the negative in even the best bit of news. Yes, Rugby League is in a more precarious position than the other Football codes in the UK, financially speaking, but there are also many positives. And this season's been (mostly) excellent so far! :)
