  1. No. They are treated as employee at most clubs(!) and they pay PAYE and Employee National Insurance, so they are in the same position as any other employee.
  2. Not many clubs operate at a profit, many rely on their owners to fund them, so on your premise there'd only a handful of clubs getting the loan money.
  3. Perez didn't make it onto the board of Hemel until November, per Companies House the company didn't have any directors between March 2019 and August 2019. The last set of accounts make for interesting reading - debt free club, not many of those around
  4. is there any suggestion that they have ? Back on topic, Skolars taking a leaf out of Toronto's books by not naming a full squad of 21 for tomorrow.
  5. Toronto pulled the plug on the double header not Saracens.
  6. It will also affect other sports, including soccer, so will be a bigger higher profile issue than just affecting "Workington man".
  7. Maybe they can add it to the investment money that they still haven't paid Skolars.
  8. Surely this thread should be part of the new general Toronto thread.
  9. Looking forward to this. Hope it's as good as Fev's game last weekend - that one even got good wraps on the BBC cricket commentary between Derby and Sussex!
  10. Good to see The Sun covering the sport again and not just match reports.
  11. I thought Ottawa had full membership of the RFL - via their purchase of Hemel Stags!
  12. Since you'v gone off topic - would it be more packed ? If they could pack it on Saturday maybe they should be looking for somewhere bigger next time. Back on topic - great result for Skolars. They could go top again if they beat Haven next week, probably doesn't get tougher than that.
  13. Because the one on the link from the OP is the most recent one...
  14. Good read, but hardly a first edition. That one came out in February 2014.
  15. given that oldham are talking about playing at Leigh Sporting Village, maybe they could move there and we could have 4 sides playing there.
  16. In the press release, Nigel Woods says “Just 10 years ago it would have been unthinkable that teams from Wales and London would contest a major final and the success of the Crusaders and Skolars offer compelling evidence of the burgeoning appeal of Rugby League. I seem to recall a team from London actually reached a major final just over 10 years ago. They made the Super League play-offs 10 years ago. Has Nigel Wood forgotten about Broncos when he wrote this ?
  17. Skolars only had to change their name for the RLC, so were in the position of playing as London Skolars in the NCL and North London Skolars in the RLC. The RLC wanted teams that either had or promised junior sections which is one of the reasons that neither the Met Police or Colonials applied to join. Crawley Jets (another long lost club) were one of those teams that promised a junior section, but never delivered. The first team were pretty successful in the few years that they lasted.
