  1. Just read on the cricinfo website that womens cricket is being introduced at the 2022 games in Birmingham, has Rugby League missed a trick here ?, the governing body should have pushed to get League included in this global tournament,. may be a 9s version, it would have been great publicity.
  2. As a Bolsover man born and bread I very much see myself as a northerner, in the old days the north started at the river Trent, the East Midlands which i dislike is an artificial region in my eyes, Vast areas of North Derbys were taken over by Sheffield n the 1920s and late 60s,
  3. I know its not a RL stadium but Saltergate because it was the first rugby match I ever went too, old Headingley because of the atmosphere.,
  4. What about Cardiff Dragons who played at Ninian Park , I could be wrong but didnt they become South Wales then moved to Bridgend or even Merthyr Tydfil.
  5. Not for me, I would rather have a proper European Super League, with 2 or 3 French teams ,
  6. For me no, the league was not set up to be a rebranded division 1, it was to grow the game nationally and internationally, and also grow the player pool,
  7. Really looking forward to this season, with the extra spice of Toronto it is going to be very interesting,
  8. a new city, a new country, larger player pool. more media exposure, Schoey, great player but hasn't moved with the times, things change, time to get Elite 1 in as part of the pyramid system to super league, ideal for Belgrade, Valancia etc
  9. Toulouse, Newcastle,Sheffield,Coventty and a Welsh club, pure fantasy I know,
  10. For me they have been a breath of fresh air, a new city/country experiencing the game and watching in good numbers, good publicity for the game, hope it continues,
  11. couldn't agree more, as much as I would prefer Toulouse to gain SLE entry if Toronto are denied after winning the GF, I will be finished with the sport for good,
  12. quite like the idea of a French magic weekend, a 2nd French team would go a long way to making it a success,
  13. this is the team I want to see in super league more than any other, go TO,
  14. in 1967 a large chunk of North Derbyshire was taken away and placed in Sheffield, most people at that time were against it, even the local mp tried to stop it, now the children and grand children from the parents of that time don't even know that Mosbrough ,Halfway Beighton and Hackenthorpe use to be in Derbyshire, they proudly say they are from Sheffield, hard to swallow at first but in time Swintonians will accept being Mancs,
  15. honestly Eddie, I do not know the answer in how to save the clubs, but certainly getting kids in to the ground could be a factor, give local schools free tickets, have a party for them after the game, making it a family day out not just a rugby game, more kids equals more parents/money at the turn styles.
