    Clubs are going to be forced to run a loss making entity that isn´t generated rev or pathways for players who bring in the money when the sport is broke and clubs are being told to focus on ROI. Women´s RL would´ve been ideal for franchises outside of the big teams to give the sport a geographic boost and actually create a future viable international comp. 

    Forced,really ?

    Which is why I suggested 9s , it still has physicality , but not at the same intensity of the full 13 a side game , it also encourages more of the players to develop skills rather than rely purely on size and strength 

    Playing only 9s and restricting it to the community level will have zero benefits to the development of the womens game in this country.

    To coincide with the community games kick off's? there are to few people taking interest and attending their local amatuer teams the last thing we need is for another excuse to stay away.

    18.00 Saturday Evening,a few pints in the clubhouse after watching the community game,mind you end up facing a dilemma,home with a takeaway to watch the TV game & keep the Mrs happy or stay out on the lash with the lads,watch it in the bar & suffer the inevitable consequences.

    New River Stadium is absolutely fine as long as they are in League One or Championship. Let's hope they get to a position where we are discussing promotion to Super League. But seems unnecessary. 

    I went to a game there about 5 years ago. It was disappointing as it felt like there were about 50 people there, so they definitely have some work to do in building a fan base. I wish them nothing but the best.

    I also agree that a name change would be good. 'Skolars' I always felt sounded like an academy team name or something. 

    South Sydney have made rabbit butcher work ok down the years,Skolars is fine.

    You just speculate then Dav, I was privvy from a source very close to the action and was told the offer that Bevan had recieved from Leigh, suffice to say Bevan is now quite well off, obviously I will keep the confidence of my contact.

    Oh I’m not doubting Leigh made a silly money offer but like I say I doubt it was a genuine option for the player himself.

    Leigh's interest certainly cost Wigan a lot of money Dav, think back it took Bevan a long time to agree a new deal with Wigan, what they initially offered was way below what Leigh came in with, Wigan had to submit quite considerably more than they had previously to outbid Leigh but they had to do it, 1, for what he brings to field of play (no pun intended) and 2, I shouldn't imagine it would have gone down very well with the Wigan public if he had chosen little Leigh over their big neighbours.

    I seriously doubt Leigh were ever a serious option for French & it was the  interest from NRL clubs drove his improved contract offer.

    Been staying in Melbourne the last week. Temperatures were 36 on Saturday, 20 on Sunday, 23 on Monday, then the forecast for tomorrow is 37 with thunderstorms and then back to 22 on Wednesday and clear

    The weather here is completely nuts.

    A change in weather from one day to the next is seen as settled in Melbourne,four seasons in one day isn’t unusual.

    Back to the game,it will be interesting to see how the loss of Kikau’s rampaging runs on a edge will affect the Panthers attacking options,still think they’ll be too strong for Saints especially playing at home in Penrith where they’ve been pretty much unbeatable for the last few years but I’m hoping it’s a close competitive game.

    Probably just a reaction to the "derby banter" boos he was receiving from the Town fans, wouldn't call it bad blood exactly although he was the only one to desert the sinking ship when we hit money troubles last year and instantly moved to our closest rivals 

    Leaving because the club defaulted on his contract is hardly deserting now is it.

    Brisbane played at QE2 Stadium between 1993 and 2003, which is/was an athletics stadium. It was known as ANZ Stadium when the Broncos played there. The 1994 WCC game against Wigan and the 1997 WCC matches were all played at that ground. 

    They did attract some unbelievable high attendances there including 54k for the WCC loss to Wigan.
