  1. What an idiot..... makes SL look defensive and delusional..... that press release by Elstone makes SL look far worse than anything Bennett Said.
  2. Could do with Red Bull taking and interest in RL https://www.redbull.com/gb-en/videos/ben-stokes-tactical-training
  3. Cricket is a massive market probably second only to soccer and the big north american sports. The world cup and test cricket is shown on tv all over the world and you can sell clothing, shoes, kit bats pads as well as the usual merchandise.......all the big brands...Nike, Adidas, Puma, Canterbury etc are involved in cricket. NB are primarily a footwear company expanding into everything else just like Nike and Adidas did. Maybe if RL had more than kits and balls as specific equipment to sell we might get more interest although i doubt it with our profile. The new one day kit in the video is a throw back design to the last time England made the final when they lost to Pakistan........Strange thing to commemorate but there you go.
  4. Perpignan got 55k in Barcelona in 2011 against Toulon in Union........I think it was a big semi final but still it shows there should be a big appetite for the game in the City especially to support a team representing Catalonia. That was in the olympic stadium too which is rubbish compared to the Nou Camp. Now the football is done and dusted over there hopefully quite a few locals will attend.
  5. NFL is a commercial monster and it's brilliant..........you just have to appreciate how it works. It's a series of set plays rather than a flowing game..........they have basketball, ice hockey and soccer for that. As well as advertising the stoppages allow for analysis and debate.........the sport is designed so you can talk to your mates, drink beer and eat hotdogs and not miss anything. I never liked it til i spent some time in NY at the beginning of the NFL season and it was the only thing on tv........now i'm into it and it's brilliant.......it's also on over the RL off season so the two sports fit together really well.
  6. The problem with our sport is not videos like this.......and how professional they are or are not........it's that stuff like this is a novelty open to criticism. In this day and age we should be seeing 100s of videos like this (good and bad) across our sport on social media every weekend. The problem is we don't.....and when someone has a go he gets ridiculed for it. FAN TV is massive in football now and basically costs nothing to do.........RL just doesn't have enough fans interested enough to do it
  7. Mine has arrived......size large.......true to size and would comfortably fit a 42 in chest. (57cm pit to pit) Wasn't too impressed with the quality so i've sold it on.........it's perfectly fine for £12 though.......the neck opening is quite large. FYI all the graphics and logos are heat transferred onto the shirt apart from the badge which is embroidered........i though from the images online that it was all sublimated apart from the badge. Much more like a football replica than a rugby one but they are a football brand.
  8. Looking at remaining fixtures Widnes have Leigh 3 times, Fev away, York twice, Fax away, Bulls away, Sheffield away, Toulouse and Toronto again. Plenty of points to be dropped there especially if the squad is small....think you have to win the majority to make top 5. It's an even league with teams beating each other and i'd expect Widnes to lose a few as the part time teams gel and get a little fitter. I certainly expect Fev, York and Leigh to get stronger as the season goes on. Widnes won't go down though.
  9. Just a hunch based on the lack of new deals Elstone has announced for SL so far and the less than impressive ones the RFL have done. .......and SL league trying to take as much money away from the rest of the game as possible. ....... and the fact that sky are shedding the number of sports they cover. But hey ho we don't know for sure they could decide to give us double.....fingers crossed.
  10. Hummel is european so my guess is they'll be on the small side.......i'm a Medium in ISC jerseys (42 chest) and large in Canterbury (42.5) and i've gone for a large with the Hummel England shirt. I find being a 41 ish chest puts be slap bag in the middle for pretty much all sports brands between medium and large and it's a lottery getting the right fit unless you can try stuff on
  11. I've got every fev shirt for as long as i can remember but i wear the same cotton hooped retro jersey to matches
  12. They've been £25 for a few weeks prior to this new price
  13. To be fair i've got loads of jerseys and i always wait til the end of the season to get them cheaper.........the RFL probably buy them wholesale from Hummel for about £5 quid each. This is very cheap though so i guess they have loads of stock left to shift ready for the GB stuff.
  14. Just bought one........12.50 bargain. I guess they are wanting rid with no england games for a while.....must be staying with Hummell cos all the other gear is full price
  15. Fev have promoted the app quite a lot directing fans to choose the club as their team when they join but they have never mentioned it going towards a tick in the box for funding.
