  1. There is a pool of players out there though Peter,its just a case of identifying them and bringing them together. Look at Broughton and especially Cockermouth who have worked hard to run age groups without poaching from or weakening other clubs. If the DPR are going to target Workington schools is that not great. Getting more kids playing has to be applauded. If one or two from your own club end up at DPR it's not going close down your youth section. Anyway I'm sure Seaton have never poached players. Back in my time involved in coaching in CARLA players were moving clubs every season to play at a higher standard.I lost numerous good players to Ellbra or Cockermouth for example. If DPR can provide a higher standard and produce a pathway for the kids into the professional game then that has to be a benefit to everyone. The golden years of the local game was when Town were doing well and community clubs were springing up all over the place. A healthy pro club = a healthy community game. Good luck to them
  2. Ask any developing nation. Ask any guys on the ground trying to establish RL .....and they will give you more or less the same story. Union has the upper hand in almost every country. Going back to the first meeting of the RLEF in Paris in 2003 ( under Richard Lewis) not a lot has changed when it comes to the game being recognized (especially by nations "Olympic organizations") which in turn fails to give the game recognition and funding. Nearly twenty years later and we are still no further forward.
  3. VPN. BBC i player. Every game anywhere in the world and legal. Viaplay the new streaming service over here (that has snatched the PL,F1 and World Darts of the main ppv Dutch channels) is showing every world cup game. Scandinavian company that operates in the Nordic countries,Baltic countries Poland, Netherlands and according to their wiki page the USA. Any one stateside this maybe worth checking out. Viaplay is planning to launch in the UK in November this year and the aggressive way they have taken major sports of big players over here( Fox /ESPN and Ziggo ) makes me wonder if they are going to challenge SKY and BT Sport for the PPV audience. Luckily the BBC 1 and 2 is available in most of the Netherlands so no extra costs or VPN needed here. edit. Fite not available in my region...just checked...looks like Viaplay have the rights ...yet BBC as I said is a mainstream TV channel. Little strange that.
  4. This game has been ignored outside Cumbria. Not even its own thread on here Put on at short notice everyone involved needs a big pat on the back. Local TV covered the Reggae Warriors at the West Cumbria Academy school coaching the kids and doing a Q&A session. A "meet the players" night took place in a well known resteraunt (with a Carrabian theme). Pre game an under 13 and a Masters game entertained the crowd then Cumbria again put on a good display. I listened here in the Netherlands via Radio Cumbria. On a cold wet night the crowd was estimated around the 4,000 mark. Eleven years since the last game...hopefully the RFL will not leave it another Eleven years before giving Cumbria more games. PS. Let's not talk about a pie in the Sky Super League club but the county deserves more representative games. Then again Cumbria beating Scotland,Ireland or Wales may not be the image the RFL would like.
  5. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/63160312
  6. Got that shirt..."News and Star" local paper across the shoulders
  7. 12 - 12 after 34 minutes. Tries now worth 4 points.
  8. Decent stream...some one please tell the Spanish it's only four points for a try. On screen score showing 7-7
  9. Parramatta,Leeds (at the crazy price if 4/1 )and Bunnies...just need Salford with 8.5 start and it will make my day.
  10. I think so .There is an "On Demand" section
  11. Just a heads up the NCL play off between Thatto Heath and Wath Brow is live on Our League in half an hour. Should be a decent game.
  12. Mine just arrived. Like a cheap stretchy sublimated tacky T shirt. First time I have had any Oxen gear and should have taken heed of comments on here. Very disappointed to be paying 58 quid for it to be honest.
