  1. If the RFL had kept the league 1 in the original format ie Development league, and allowed 1 new team a season if possible with promotion to Championship, this way teams who are stronger can progress. Make S/L a larger league by 2 then allowing 2 extra teams into Championship. Just an idea.
  2. If the new TV deal is significantly less, this time round, I suspect that there will little money or nothing at all, and that will be end of league 1 as we know it.
  3. I love the idea of expansion in RL, but the north will always give it there best, but to be a truly national sport we need to get into the South and have a strong foothold, no idea how to do it, but I think it is key for our great game..
  4. Hemel Stags been around 35 years, have long lease, have a club house open 7 days a week. two pitches, astro 9 a side pitch, and a very strong lottery 1,800 members. Strong junior set up. This does not mean it can automatically go to the next step as they found out. But they are still classed as an expansion club.
  5. Will Sky pay less money to S/L clubs now that Toronto are not in competition, and SBW the biggest name in S/L no longer around this season?
  6. Does any one have an idea when the September fixtures are confirmed.
  7. Question: Any ideas how they can do Challenge Cup draw, when leaque 1, Championship clubs have no idea if they are going to play, and Catalans seem to being forced to play early rounds in UK.
  8. Ryanair running flight's to Perpignan now. All falling into place.
  9. I'm gagging to go Perpignan from UK, far more chance of me getting it, mixing with general public, than the teams flying in an out.
  10. How many teams there will be in the future will depend on the new tv deal I have a feeling there will be more teams in the Championship going part time, and some League 1 teams dropping out. Clubs should be realistic forget egos and spend what they can afford that includes S/L. It won't happen tho.
  11. I always thought the scrum could used far more by teams as a set play. You hardly see a contested scrum, foot on the ball to catch people off side etc.
  12. Was in the Hemel Stags club house last year, and that red shirt is in a frame. Nice bit of club history.
  13. Is it just me or are the video ref's far quicker in making decisions in oz than the UK. Also you hardly hear the ref.
  14. Think there is a realisation about finances this time around, which could encourage clubs to try more up an coming youngster's
