  1. One just has to look at the number of South Africans who have played in the English RL over many decades & successfully, to realise the potential for the game there.
  2. Gary Carter on twitter says Wigan v Salford garnered ch 4 viewing figures of 213k average, peak 270k I think. Surely the inconsistent coverage is hurting chances of more solid ratings?
  3. Let's remember French league announces attendances based on sold tickets. There could have been more in attendance baded on guests etc?
  4. Thank you. So I've read 59 million euro is the budget & Lacoste stated 70% will come from private investment. So does that mean 30% will come from the govt, which equates to nearly 18 million euro. Hopefully more on the govt investment can become clearer. I also imagine this would be central govt funding & extra municipal funding etc will be garnered for hosting games, training?
  5. Anybody know how much the French govt have chipped in?
  6. Marseille too have history. For an organisation that calls itself 'elite' & itself has ambitions beyond the South, larger city clubs are a must. How long have the likes of St Gaudans, Villeneuve etc had to go beyond a few hundred species these past 3 decades? It obviously isn't even working in the 'heartlands'
  7. Perhaps bring the elite back to 12 clubs & see some one-time clubs like Marseille, Lyon & say a Paris team perhaps. Might be a start to get more consistent free to air coverage like they have to ccasionally with Occitaine TV & who knows from there.
  8. French league is continually stuck in a rut if Pia are promoted. This will not garner national interest
  9. So basically Coventry Bears are dead? I don't see why, if this is the case, the owners have abandoned the team name & city all together?
  10. Should be an Olympic sport. Unlike that other code the wheelchair version actually resembles the parent sport & uses the proper ball to boot.
  11. Read St Gauden's have a new president. Was quite a well established businessman with offices in Paris but couldn't read rest of article-paywall
  12. Wish it would hit here in Oz this 'financial crisis' as property prices are beyond a joke. Someone's got money
  13. Catalans on a fb post said their match got 288k average viewers & peak of 446k
  14. Wasnt Super League back in the day launched on April 1? If so, could be a genuine announcement with a slap in someone's face? Let's hope it's something worth counting down for!
  15. Plus lets see how many super league clubs in the UK would have survived without £28 million loans + grants from the govt? Please, no time to still be on high horses about the Wolfpack.
  16. Titans numbers are woeful but Warriors are coming into their second season of playing in Australia. Prior to covid I think they had 18,000 plus members. Definately one of the hardest hit due to circumstances out of their control not being able to play home games in NZ hence not being able to sell match memberships.
  17. Another interesting thing about tv ratings is the almost snail pace conversion of the whole ratings system. The set top box method is outdated & the technology is there for it to be replaced by digital technology that is in place in just about every tv out there. The question is why the recitence in keeping this flawed rating system when they can virtually access the results of who is watching what in about 90 % of households? Why does the NRL virtually outrate the AFL on platforms like foxsports, kayo etc where this digital reading of who view what already exists but not on fta? Surely when we are told AFL fans are 'wealthier' & watch the game in 'greater' numbers blah blah, they are suddenly beaten in the more 'expensive' realm of 'pay' tv & ultimately more accurate method of ratings measurement? I think there is a good reason to drag the knuckles on tv ratings measurement for fta when it favors a certain narrative.
  18. They have signed a streaming deal to show their championship on Flick Sports
  19. On the wiki page of Plough Lane they mention the London Broncos..just saying.
