  1. Don’t bother, there’s a train strike.
  2. Wigan were good but never so good that they had to change the rules to accommodate them.
  3. What chance of the first live on free to air SL Grand Final at 6pm on a Saturday night. That would be something!
  4. Perhaps the RFL should play it at Elland Road and offer half price tickets? That’ll get a crowd in.
  5. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/61393032
  6. 18 year old who was “shaking” when faced with sitting before Josh. I’d have invited the rest of the first team in and locked the door.
  7. What happened to no train no play. Can imagine the young kids that have been flogged in training so far this year, might not be quite as enthusiastic when they’re asked to do another lap on the captain’s run.
  8. Leeds previously gave the impression that they were a cut above. Their standards must have shifted.
  9. I know, was being facetious. A game for a game sake. Play France. It’s not a country. Zero interest for me.
  10. You know you are getting old when the likes of Stephenson depart. Absolutely best play of his career was releasing Henderson Gill down the wing at Wembley in 1985.
  11. This joke is wearing a bit thin as sadly I’m able to roll out every year (for the last ten) but here you go. Don’t mention it.
  12. This will very quickly stray onto another forum. I will keep it momentarily relative by saying some on here suggested it would be a good fit for RL (before going onto say that there is another sport we all know and love that will he worrying what it means for them!)
  13. It doesn’t “save” the intention is to obtain expertise to grow the games profile/income. I suspect that at worst they’ll be looking at cost neutrality. It’s helpful that it’s now belatedly recognised that there is not the experience or expertise within the game commercially. A little speculation for accumulation!

  15. According to this total Premier League matchday revenue for last season was £700 between 20 clubs. An average of £35 Million per club over 19 games. https://www.statista.com/statistics/874020/revenue-of-premier-league-football-clubs-by-stream/ I can’t see how £1M per game is remotely achievable at Moor Lane or £200 per fan assuming 5000. I suspect SRD would be happy with the £100,000 per game that is more likely.
  16. I would have liked a little more thinking outside if the box. This is screaming out for a Salford - Swinton - University- Council and dare i say RFL collaboration to co- fund a new home. Oh and Fred Done!? If the council is taking ownership of Moor Lane, it could be redeveloped as housing and any profit put towards another stadium enabling development. It looks pretty hemmed in to be developed much. There’s a sports ground with recently installed 3G behind the University and just half a mile from the Crescent train station. There’s surrounding older industrial units which could also be looked at and make something which could be utilised for all. https://sports-facilities.co.uk/sites/view/6002593
