  1. So nearly 2 hours, similar to a Whitehaven trip then , certainly not a derby with anyone, so a problem for whoever draws the short straw.
  2. End of the day, Gateshead being an outlier are going to be a problem for whoever needs to travel there, whether it be humberside, Yorkshire or Cumbria. No easy solution. Definately not regional for any team to travel there, and for Gateshead a cost and travel for half their fixtures. Cumbria travel isn't the easiest either, especially once out of the brow,egremont Kells vicinity. The barrow teams that seem to be struggling at the minute, on the field that is, won't relish trips to Whitehaven region if they're getting beat every week.
  3. Isn't west Yorkshire as far a travel for Gateshead as going to Cumbria, which was the concern about it being regional. Might be even further, probably is.
  4. Who do Gateshead go with then, similar journey time to humberside too for Gateshead
  5. I also think teams will struggle when, for example Wath Brow, a prem team play a fellow Cumbrian team, Askam,a division 3 team who are currently bottom. Especially if it's 4 or 5 games in, brow are top unbeaten,in the Cumbrian region,and Askam haven't won a game. All theoretical, may not happen between these 2 teams, but regionalising isn't all as rosy as first thoughts can be, especially when teams are up against it player standards wise. This is where the ncl needs to be careful in the splitting up of leagues, top v bottom can be a very big gap in standards, and players, once getting beat regularly will be reluctant to play, no matter what the derby situation is.
  6. During the lockdown a few teams have created voting on Twitter etc for their teams of the decade 2010-2020. A great idea, keeping players, spectators, coaches and general fans of the game interested in their own and other clubs. Leigh miners, thatto heath , Askam, being teams from the ncl that I've noticed taking part in this idea. What cracking teams they appear to have had, team and individual player wise. Any other clubs taking part? What is the eventual selected team?
  7. Don't think clubs can afford not to play again until next season, so just scrapping the season isn't the answer I don't think.
  8. How would the leagues be split up numbers wise? Having just looked Hull and Yorkshire plus Gateshead 28 teams Cumbria 7 teams Lancashire 14 teams Is it that straight forward, or would the playing strengths of some teams be a problem. Top end ncl prem now v bottom end ncl 3 is a big difference but same league due to region in a future format. Brow v Askam , Thatto v waterhead, Siddal v Gateshead? Are these the type of fixtures that will be produced? Would these type of fixtures be more of a detriment?
  9. https://www.loverugbyleague.com/post/no-mid-season-test-for-england-as-full-international-schedule-announced/ No mid season international for England. A good or bad thing for Shaun Wane and his new regime?
  10. Is Joe Philbin now English rather than Irish,thought he'd been picked for the gb squad via the Irish team but now he's in the England squad. Has Morgan Knowles been overlooked, or is he Welsh, having played for Wales?
  11. Was Ratu Naulago worth a shout for the knights squad meet up, or doesn't he qualify. He's had a super start to his hull and rugby league career.
  12. Gonna be interesting where he fits in at Leeds, on an edge or through the middle. Martin looks the goods, and Mellor has started well too, Cameron Smith has also started well, although Stevie ward is injured again, maybe covering his position. Time will tell, but with his early start to his career, there looked plenty of promise, hopefully he kicks on.
  13. A non selection of Joe Greenwood, shows how far backwards he has gone since his edge days at st Helens. What has happened to his career? Jake Connor, still wonder what his best position is, but he went very well in the new Zealand series at home, only 18 months ago, a big robust back with good skills, surely he should be around a 31 man squad?
  14. Surprised Ash Handley not there, started ok for Leeds this season
  15. https://www.rugby-league.com/article/56465/shaun-wane-selects-england-squad-candidates?fbclid=IwAR0VSPISyFyZuQ4TTdkFonr9bEpENRagDu23znCthEJWPKdeTtejJo_m6Xc Includes the knights selections too
