  1. sure skolars would be keen charliedehaan@skolarsrl.com he is GM.
  2. surely tho if we evolve the game to make it safer by tweaking rules then this is the same. for instance the high tackle rule has increasingly lowered down the body as the science shows its safer. surely the front row hugging and binding for a period of time and back rows putting their heads on sweaty ***** is something that can be reduced. i get the point on tackling but its similar but not the same
  3. where did you live, btw life during corona has proved people can work effectively remotely. i am sure most RL clubs would welcome you on board.
  4. I think there is a chance that the scrum could or should get dropped at least for the short term. as we dont have malls and line outs like union its probably the one area you could drop. tackling will be difficult but at least its over with quickly and has limited people.
  5. No skolars director has ever looked to make money from skolars. in fact the company is a ltd company but not for profit.
  6. The interesting thing is the Royal Mint is the oldest company in Britain established in 886.
  7. greece had a pretty impressive team when they played norway. i would say its 2/3rd greek from last time.
  8. someone should set up a just giving page. id chuck in £50
  9. anyone know how they are going? neutrals should be interested and salford following at Wigan was impressive. what's the St Helens and Salford rivalry like. its a bit like mini me Man Utd v Liverpool.

  12. be nice to get sky giving it some air time now
  13. Lots of players missing today and season going out on a whimper. like most games this season we were in it for a half. its been a season of some good things and Londonfan has a point its mostly been disappointing especially with the extra money. The 20s has been great tho and should help skolars generate more local players. 2 debut today including one 17 year old who looks great. the reserve league will hit us hard i think and as Rach quite rightly points out the player pool is small and its just got much smaller. Londonfan i am sure skolars board and staff would love some more help around the place and investment if you want to help out. Some of the guys like hector has played at the club, coached it and sunk hundreds of thousands of pounds into it over the last 25 years so not sure what else they can do. I'm sure they would be happy for any help tho
  14. hey not sure how helpful some of the input is. what's wrong with some out the box thinking?
  15. not necessarily. can be both or one, i didnt think the are complementary just two ideas
  16. just think it changes the ref and touchees roles. maybe touchees stagger. or maybe you need a third touchee
  17. So here we go. I thought what could be a massive innovation for our game potentially change it for good. I had two. Drop 2 players and go to 11 aside. Like all field sports we are playing on the same size pitches since the start. Players are multiple times faster, fitter and much bigger than then. By definition space is much more limited. Taking 2 players off would open the game up massively. second one is allow one forward pass in each set of 6. You could sanction that it needs to travel a certain distance forward eg 10 metres. You could keep the offside rule or play with it to maybe limit it to a certain number of players. for me its radical but would be worth an experiment with both. I think it would make the game faster, open up defences and really make RL different from most ball sports. I dont think we should be scared of trying new things and also increasing the spectacle, the game has stayed the same for most of its life and doing something radical could give it a new lease of life.
  18. The big Nigerian chap for the West Frica team was 23 or 24 stone. small fella
  19. I met Carlos Varela who is Chair of ARL and I asked him why he did this on a fb message. he said "They did not affiliate me, they wanted me to join a group that had no entity, I have all the documents in order and they have nothing. But to clarify the issue is that the leader of the other group is the coach of the selected. It means that if I designate another tomorrow, I build an association and I have to join too. This is crazy, really very disappointed with everything. The WRL asked me for all the documentation they analyzed and in four days they affiliated me, without turns, now I feel calmer and with a view to developing the RL comfortably." I then asked him "the WRL really aren't a real organisation. you should discuss with chris thair. " He said "Ian, talk to everyone, email Nigel, Jeremy, Tas, and who forced me to leave or join: Danny. Already done, time will tell who is right, the comments are divided, some very bad to the WRL and others very lam to the RLIF and these are the most (although they are within the organization). I appreciate your comment, but it is an accomplished fact. I am not a boy to be told what to do or to which side I should go, I just have to see the attitudes and positions to realize if they are telling me the truth or want to entangle me to do what they want." Carlos is a very nice man up against a staunch and powerful Union. I believe he is truly only doing what he feels is best with his limited resources. if anyone has any old rugby league kits they and Chile would love them. Im also involved with Ghana if anyone has them for them as well.
  20. Well done to London Skolars U20s winning London 9s social mens comp. Beating Lithuania in the final who had beat the lads early on. Also one of our younger lads Cameron Giwa-McNeil also represented West Africa RL as well.
  21. referee over ruled the linesman who gave it forward. terrible decision and hard to take tbh. the ref has been awful every time he has refd at new river. i could take a one off but this is too many times imo
  22. i also saw that it was being promoted on an email from pitchero website provider. id seen they had done it for loads of union games and i sent an email to the RFL and they acted on it. good on them!
