  2. In summary the recommendations are: “A re-positioned calendar which optimises flow, narrative and engagement, incorporating regular ‘peaks’ of interest and a compelling season climax. A calendar aligned with the global game to facilitate an international window in October and incorporate a mid-season international. Participation in the top tier to be based on a range of on and off field measures, delivered through a club grading system with the aim of supporting financial sustainability and encouraging investment into clubs. ‘Category A’ clubs will be guaranteed participation in the top tier whilst ‘Category B’ clubs will be re-assessed annually with the highest-ranking clubs occupying the remaining slots in the top tier. Promotion and relegation will continue on the field of play between the second and third tiers with tier two increasingly filled with strong Category B Clubs. An expansion strategy to be developed that targets and supports the growth of the Women’s and Girls’ game, and also growth in new markets. Participation of clubs outside of the UK to be capped and with additional standards to support domestic growth. Operations to be centralised where this can maximise efficiencies and drive incremental revenue (e.g. ticketing and digital infrastructure). A new brand strategy to be introduced and aligned with the above commercial strategy.” More details: https://twitter.com/intent/follow?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1575114488080400384|twgr^4c51f614b4046ad848f12e7d1c6eebf4dd447bd9|twcon^s1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.totalrl.com%2Fforums%2Findex.php%3Fapp%3Dcoremodule%3Dsystemcontroller%3Dembedurl%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjdgsport%2Fstatus%2F1575114488080400384&screen_name=jdgsport
  3. If so, still 17 part-time teams (most with rugby league history writ large) with a geographical spread from Cumbria to Cornwall and with the potential to add new teams from UK and France. Ultimately, a 20-team Championship? We should know our value soon!
  4. https://www.totalrl.com/crunch-vote-ahead-on-img-proposals-as-reimagining-rugby-league-begins/ Proposals on rugby league’s future from 2024 will be voted on by clubs this Wednesday. Apparently, IMG has consulted ‘stakeholders’ across the game. Naturally, the voting result will immediately influence clubs’ plans for 2023 which will remain under the current league structure. How it affects 2023 promotion and relegation and especially the future of League 1 clubs is my concern. This subject is being followed on the main forum. Hopefully, our club will keep us fully posted.
  5. Just in case anyone missed our defeat…..not good enough defensively. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwihrbvIsbL6AhVehP0HHb1zBnUQFnoECAQQAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rugby-league.com%2Farticle%2F60982%2Fhighlights-%7C-doncaster-v-rochdale-hornets&usg=AOvVaw2Ok_oJVTesZMpCQKsuetHs …..a long drag to next season and how we rebuild for what may be a final League 1 as it stands.
  6. A 52-20 (12-4 ht) win by Donny - perhaps for us exiled Hornets supporters it was good that the game wasn't streamed! The Swinton v Donny final should be closer.
  7. HT. Donny 12 - Hornets 4 Seems a bit tense....which team will go for broke? Certainly too late for Hornets - we will have to wait another year... 52-20 to Donny after too many Hornets' infringements and errors. Very disappointing end of season result.
  8. Trust we shall have a very good following in Doncaster tomorrow to cheer another great performance taking us into the final. No doubt a very tough encounter, especially after Donny’s loss at Swinton, with discipline paramount to success. Apparently, we have not won at Donny since April 2011, so what a better time to repeat our victory.
  9. On the Hornets main site from 18 Sept: Check out this site /article/1149/ruthless-hornets-surge-into-semi-finals Rochdale Hornets @RochdaleHornets · Sep 17 A reminder that today's game is free to watch live on @TheSportsman The Sportsman match coverage was announced 14/9 on Hornets’ Twitter feed.
  10. Same again+ please for the semi v Donny at their place. A Swinton v Hornets final would be a cracker for many reasons and Donny have had their chance! If so, ideally that should be on a neutral venue.....but we did see off Toulouse!
  11. And the next winning lottery numbers are? Perhaps you meant that if Hornets are promoted we may finish at the back end of the Championship top 6 - as your team surprised for this League 1 season?
  12. Crusaders certainly didn't. Hornets 36 - NWC 20 Hornets got the spoils comfortably, despite a last 10 minute relaxing spell to concede 10 points.
  13. Hornets 24- Crusaders 6 Some excellent play from Hornets - a pleasure to watch live - and long may it continue. Hornets 36 - Crusaders 20 Excellent Hornets. Aside from the last 10- 15mins when Crusaders upped their game and we relaxed too much! Bring on our semi finalist.
