  1. In the 50's and 60's there was little TV coverage, so you will find most record attendances for a club in those decades, although wakeys record attendance was in 1929. These were days when there was little attention paid to safety, hence Fev's record in 1959 of 17,500.
  2. Sorry Phil, never never land doesn't exist. As I said elsewhere, why not have the best 12 teams in the top league, then at the end of the season the 12th best and 13th best team swap places. A bit radical, but he ho.
  3. From an attendance figure you are probably looking at the fifties, maybe early sixties.
  4. But he saw that the 'Bums on seats' from traveling SL fans would help fund his 'Project'.
  5. Correct, just Argyle didn't expect the bottom to 'fall out' of the travel market. I guess he saw his expected profits down the pan due to the travel restrictions.
  6. Salford, Catalans, etc made an effort, TW just withdrew from the league. The 'lower leagues' were cancelled. Some wanted to play, so do you let the ones who wanted to play in, and the ones who didn't out?
  7. As a club they were expected to fulfill their fixtures, as all SL clubs did, or at least attempted. Some made an effort TW didn't bother.
  8. No, Toronto effectively withdrew from the league. If I pack my job in, I wouldn't expect my employers to set me on the next year
  9. This may seem rather radical, and I apologies for putting this forward, But what about, the top 12 teams in the competition are in the top division, and at the end of each season the 12th and 13th best teams change places? Or is that too radical?
  10. Not sure that GUBRATS advocates licencing, in fact probably the opposite. I would guess that it's more that a clubs fate should be decided on the field, and not by some 'vogue' decisions made 'for the good of the game'
  11. This ..... and in 20 years when there are no 'Junior' players coming through SLE will just be a 3rd division of the NRL
  12. Only if we add Barley Mow and Broughton Rangers
  13. Oxford, Gloucestershire and Northampton aren't been set up as the exemplar club, as many posts would have you believe. Just for yipyee, they were all failed predecessors to the current London club, hope that helps.
  14. Kent Invicta, Fulham, Harlequins, London Broncos
  15. Having Wigan, Saints and Warrington all in SL is okay, but not the WF 3?
  16. Not that Fev Rover, This one is a 2yo Fev Rover Part owned by Hugh Taylor, Tipster for At The Races, who happens to be a Fev Rovers fan
  17. How about Mick Smiths 1973 Wembley try, not the best but probable the most viewed as it was on the start of Grandstand for years
