Is this the future for RL in S Wales ?

Recommended Posts

Has there been any official news from the club or a club official? I can't believe it if not, from the outside it looks like there is no players and no coach. Surely the fans that put money into this club have had an update or deserve one.

To give an idea of why Maesteg should be the place, I had a call this morning regarding the Academy.

The gentleman on the phone was mystified as to why his calls,email and even snail mail to WRL offices at Treforest hadn't been returned....that's because they don't exist anymore and the only office WRL have is the dedicated one at Maesteg.

When I read the message on the Scotland RL website I had a look on the Welsh and Irish ones to see if a similar situation existed. So that's it, is it? The Welsh office shut? The staff gone?

I was thinking the other day that the RFL should try get two teams one North Wales (insert powerful mascot name) and South Wales (insert powerful mascot name) and really build a rivalry. Then try get the two Prem Football teams involved i.e Swansea say back North Wales and Cardiff back South Wales. Put loads of money into advertising and use Liberty Stadium for North Wales home game and Cardiff City Stadium for South Wales home game. Try get 10,000/15,000 their and make it a real atmosphere that fans want to go back to

I do like the North Wales/South Wales idea.

Swansea are in South Wales, so I can't see them ever backing North Wales given the rivalry.  

 

Swansea already share with Ospreys, so probably can't fit another team in either. I doubt it is just a case of asking Cardiff/Swansea to get involved, or if it was we would already have loads of clubs linked to football teams.  Also, you talk about 10-15k, but those figures are miles away at the moment, if we can only get a 3-5k Welsh fans for RLWC games (I'm guessing based on the attendances) then that won't suddenly treble for North v South Wales.

that seems to suggest that they will be in neath again but at least they will still exist. Maybe a hint at more welsh boys playing?

More Welsh boys is good, any rumour on coaching announcements?

I went to Neath for the world cup game last week and I loved the town, it reminded me of the north back in the eighties. I would look to build more teams in the area personally, build an identity down there. 

 

I have to ask you Scorps supporters.... Aberavon look to have a better ground than Neath, so why not move there????

Is that the current assistant? Also heard while in Cardiff for the opener the the fella that coached the Wales A Team and Select Side was being spoke about, and another from South Wales area but for the life of me can't remember the name. All good anyway and going in right direction. Now just Swinton to sort themselves out :)
