  1. As a bit of an aside, but kind of related, how many people do you think watch live terrestrial tv in the UK now? I know here in Aus I watch everything on demand now, have done for a year or two, and that’s how most people I know watch tv. So I have to specifically hunt out a channel/show to watch it. I will go to Fox Sports when I know an RL game is on to watch it, but I no longer ‘flick through channels’ so will never come across something by chance. Is this common in the uk now too? Because if it is it should mean a complete revamp in how we market our games
  2. To be fair, I wonder how many could name a current rugby league player?
  3. That’s kind of where I’m at too. Of course we don’t want us to lose in such a manner, but this will be an incredible night for PNG
  4. Well if they had women’s over 45s teams I could play for England (by birth) and Australia (by residency - after 14 years)... personally could never play for Aus though - I’d feel like a traitor
  5. Been a lot of doom and gloom about Toronto in SL next year so just wondering, how many fans are planning to go/have already booked? Lots of chat and questions about travel on social media. I don’t think I can make it for the Hull game next year - I’m in Aus and I’ve got so many things going around the time they’re playing in April, but I can’t wait to get over the following year if feasible. I’m excited to see who’s excited about going!
  6. I particularly like your first point. This was something that really annoyed me when Melbourne Storm got done for salary cap breaches and stripped of their titles. The Storm never went out and bought success - most of their big earning players had come through their system. They invested in those players’ developments, turned them into superstars and took them to a level where they deserved to earn ‘x’ amount. Surely that’s what you want clubs to do? I don’t think clubs should be punished for excellent development work - they should be rewarded
  7. Well I’d bloody hope it would have been anyway
  8. This was exactly me experience at Tonga v England in Auckland in the World Cup. You really have to experience it first hand to understand how amazing the atmosphere is
  9. I’ve always thought Powell would be a good choice. Surprised he hasn’t had a crack yet... but maybe he doesn’t want it?
  10. I really wouldn’t expect Aussies to fly over to NZ for, effectively, a meaningless match. Lack of Kiwis there was a little worrying though. But it was the same day as the union World Cup final, and that is their no.1 sport, so I imagine a lot were watching that somewhere
  11. I was reading somewhere that Jackson Hastings could still switch to Australia as GB are not classed as a tier 1 nation - he would have to play for England to become ineligible for Australia. That does seem a strange rule
  12. If I was involved in international RL I’d be calling an emergency meeting (or whatever you might call it) and working out what we’re going to do with Tonga. There is something super special there, and we need to foster it and develop it and see where it can go
