Rugby League Down South - what fans in the south are thinking

15 posts in this topic

With the curious mix of a successful NATIONAL Championship One with the frustrations of the Broncos in Super League, it is time to hear what all southern based fans think. In the absence of any initiative from the Broncos on this, we arranged to do one ourselves and broadcast it under the professional guidance of Ian Ramsdale of BBC London as a podcast.

To access, it is here: http://www.spreaker.com/user/ianramsdale/rlds_the_pubcast_ep_19
or here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/rlds-the-pubcast-ep.19/id604029710?i=161378503&mt=2

We would welcome any feedback from all fans of the game on the initiative or the views raised.

Really interesting podcast this. Well worth listening. They might be southerners, but they're definitely leaguies.

"You can't beat the Aussies with the M62 gene pool"!

Interesting perspective from RL Down South

Garry Schofield thinks we can. No, he believes it is the only way.

With his record against the Aussies, thank God we're not relying on the Hunslet gene pool!

Strange, to hear him talk I assumed we had beaten them when he played.

It was a really good listen. I'll definitely be listening to future episodes.

Also, I didn't know the RFL had an office in London.

They add a capital 'I' on their passes so it looks like RFU...

No longer. The RFL closed the office

That fact ought to be obvious to anyone who follows British RL.  The sport must expand its' geographic spread much more than it has so far, not only to bring more players in but also to be worthy of the national media coverage and big money sponsorhips it needs to flourish.

Crowds were were small they dont have there own ground yet they have produced some good players I belive they need to carry on and be supported by the rugby league I'm a massive rugby league fan I come from essex
