London ? 30 years ago there were next to no kids playing the contact sport of RL in London. Today it is a success story.....
I don't see why that cannot be replicated in Wythenshaw.
Whats mind numbingly boring is your wishful thinking that RL can push and promote itself to such an extent it will turn everyone on and people will take the game up and watch the game and championship clubs will grow and flower into professional clubs etc etc etc.
Get a history of RL book and read the reality of the games struggles from day one to today. 126 years of struggle with another 126 to come.
As for YOU saying London junior RL is a "success story" my word how you can do an about turn and a back flip if it suits you?
The south east is a massive area such that we may just be able to sustain a junior RL big enough to feed a superleague club.
Whilst that is a success for us, what we will achieve is miniscule against what Soccer and RU achieve in London.
You know full well we are not a success in London but we have found enough interest across a very big place to make having an SL club there worthwhile.A success relative to our size.
All this "can be done" nada nada nada isn't debate. It's fantasy Rugby League.
Please can we have an additional forum on here for the fantasists??
Lets go into business together, I can formulate a sensible and realistic business plan for us whilst you close your eyes and dream we'll be marks and spencers.
