Pen-Y-Bont Crusader

Is this the future for RL in S Wales ?

Recommended Posts

Update on Scorpions Facebook page this morning that 4 ex players are looking to come back to the club and also requested any other rugby players from south Wales area interested in playing next season to get in touch. So at last some positive news for rugby league in south Wales!!

Maesteg RFC have knocked back requests from two Welsh Premier League clubs to play games there whilst they await Scorpions to come and open discussions with them.

If that's not evidence enough to say that they need to play out of there I don't know what is.

For any club to turn down guaranteed income in this climate in the hope of getting RL played there is fantastic in terms of the support they are offering and evidence of the promise they see in a link up with the WRL Academy at Maesteg School.

Haven't most clubs started pre season? Have you started yet?

 

I don't know to be honest. I am rediscovering league after the RLWC, used to attend Crusaders games I guess I am a bit of a fair weather fan lol

I have seen Rugby League played at Maesteg. Celtic Crusaders played Keighley there in the first season, and I have also had a few good days drinking in Maesteg. The 7777 ground is probably the most picturesque ground I have ever watched the game in (Sunny day helped), but I feel that Maesteg its self is too isolated to attract crowds any better than Neath. Pen-Y-Bont Crusader, you know I am a supporter of RL in South Wales. are you telling us that if Maesteg can't have Scorpions they don't want the academy? or have I misinterpreted that?

Hi CR. No we are not saying that it is dependant on having the Scorps there ayt all - its just based on common sense for a team at this level right now.

The town council as well as the RU club are supportive of this as part of a wider strategy for the town itself which makes even more sense if the club is to grow organically.
