  1. I invited a reality check- that's all 75k per year goes to the Crusaders from RFL Great to see community work in North Wales . What would that 75k do for them instead of a failing Wigan / Leigh based pay as you play team with a begging bowl in their hands? How important is it to have a pro outfit based ( allegedly ) in Wrexham for North Wales expansion ?
  2. Got the info from a trusted friend and leading light on the Judes committee Eddie. Ask Anthony Murray the Crusaders coach yourself if you know him. And I only ever comment on these forums about issues that I have direct knowledge about Eddie. And I have a lot of knowledge on other RL matters that I choose not to comment upon
  3. Reality check. The Crusaders coach in the last few weeks has been asking Wigan St Judes an NCL club for use of their significant training facilities. Not sure how far that is from Wrexham or even Colwyn Bay. They are pennyless. I think we have all seen this movie before............
  4. ??? Do you now support anarchic activities ? I hear what you say and maybe understand that but The RFL will step in and sort it out.... Euro X111 remains unsanctioned. and if it ever gets off the ground will fly totally unprotected by Governing Bodies. That said the issue of constitutional reform within RLEF remains a lively debate. I heard some wanted a voting restructure. Totally agree. And within all of that a rule that brings club activities within the control of National Bodies rather than as at present . The likes of EURO 13 and its clubs would then have to be effectively passed on a due diligence process by all concerned before embarking on this sort of fun......
  5. Totally agree Eddie Lee Briers and Danny Brough together would be my picture of the month for the front page of Vogue -- but most can't see the effort and life behind those faces.....
  6. NCL will not run a separate format The contingency plan has been for the RFL to issue ' friendlies ' on a very local basis mixing level 5 with level 4 clubs. Fingers crossed that could still be the case. and 2 / 10 was the hoped for re-start . Under strict control many clubs have started to train again. No games however will be sanctioned after 28/11. ( be they winter or summer leagues. ) Social distancing rules would apply to spectators and likewise clubhouses. The RFL and all other full contact sports are guided by the Government. The very nature of our game puts us in the last to be ' normalised ' The pathway to full re-engagement is incredibly difficult- clubs have the details ( for instance only 6 players per changing room !! ). Covid is returning. The game is not in a good place . Other than at the very top of both codes of rugby at pro level my view is that there will be no rugby this Autumn and that the Community game will not be passing a competitive ( or any ) ball before at least the New Year.......
  7. I agree with Padge. He was 6ft 7 inch whatever wiki says. Monster in size but genuine modest and player centred captain of his team , leader of a year on year world beating club............ Few players have ever held that spot ..... Peacock , Roby and O'loughlin spring to mind in the modern era.....
  8. More than a decent team but I'm definately on their side when the famous gingernut fuse goes off.........
  9. One of the fastest back row forwards I ever watched was big Bill Ashurst ,,and Mike Gregory was not far behind. But come on you Salford guys - what about your Quality St gang ? Maurice Ritchards had pace and Dai Watkins had it to burn....
  10. Josh Charnley and Edwards ( when he had hair ) ?
  11. Brian Bevan has to be on the right wing........ Steve Hampson at full back is in with a shout.....
  12. SL will sell a major stake to CVC who will then merge both codes to start to challenge soccer as the only contact team sport with worldwide appeal.........
  13. Not seen the AGM agenda or anything like that but- half of these affiliated guys are not doing much in terms of a viable national competition , single team people , yet want to control the development of the Euro Game ? Spent too much of my life in RL Sports Politics not to spot a run at the gate.... Spain are financed by as yet unnamed sources. Probably Italy and maybe Turkey as well Would be incredibly happy if they came upfront to support TGG They seemingly will not. But would seriously advise RLEF to check these movements and change their own constitution ( RLEF have the votes ) to include club level activities rather than just national ones within their rules Then we have a proper flow........... But do these guys want that ? Just asking ?
  14. Excellent piece and one for noting as we approach our own World Cup next year........
