Apparently AM struggling with funding to televise the games, you would think the rfl would jump on board to help spread the word of our great game,

AGM was last night and they said they were still in discussions and Alex Simmons was talking to freesports. They said he was hoping at minimum to get the play offs and grand final on there

I may be wrong, but I thought the RFL was in charge after the switch to summer rugby. All results are sent to them and if you are appealing against a suspension don’t they deal with it. Whereas in the past it was BARLA

Pretty certain it’s a members league, the exposure was good but teams below the top 2 leagues wouldn’t get any games on so i doubt they’d be keen on any funding from the NCL to pay for TV to show the games

If this is true, I can see a few more clubs withdrawing from the league due to the high cost of coach travel. I noticed last year that a few clubs traveled by cars to our venue and I’m not talking about local derbies.

In regards to funding, is it true that the NCL travel grant has been withdrawn by the RFL ?

Not sure where that’s up to, however the NCL secured the Rhino/Arnold Clarke sponsorship deal to mitigate this

Not sure how much the clubs depend on the travel grant, for us it covered the cost of one coach to a match in the north west, better than nothing though

And it appears around half of the clubs declined the offer of a free kit

As I understand it £10,000 sponsor split across 50 teams; £200 per team hardly subsidies travel for the season does it
