  1. Very good player, was a Wigan youngster but a bad injury knocked his development, had 3 great years at Town. Had signed for Otawa before they postponed.
  2. Said this many times, we need to follow the RU model ! Every club that receives central funding sells a number of tickets for the GF and the CC, this is on a sliding scale ie Super League sells the most and working down. Example each SL club sells 1000 tickets , if the don't it comes out of there central fund. Simple way to make every club accountable for our big events, in return the events become sell outs , and there value increases. This is the reason Twickenham is always full for meaningless fixtures.
  3. Two league's of 10/12/14 doesn't really matter if the clubs in the two league's are fully sustainable, scrap the salary cap, make clubs find there level, any club who can't survive without £50k funding shouldn't be anywhere near a semi professional sport.
  4. Totally agree, went onto sky sports news Monday hoping to see some great piece on the two games played, first RL story I finally found after streams of other positive sports stories was " game ends in brawl" said previously there's an agenda to destroy or seriously damage our game.
  5. Your right I've never watched a champions League midweek for years.
  6. Showcasing our biggest fixtures on a Wednesday and Thursday night , you couldn't make it up.
  7. There's a constant question of "how do we make the game more attractive for Sky TV? In my opinion they are the cause of the sports demise, no existing advertising of games , shifting games to a Wednesday and Thursday night , dreadful presentation , awful commentary , you would think they are deliberately trying to devalue our great game!!
  8. Town also had numerous player's missing , Scholars unfit, unorganized and very poorly coached.
  9. Town never got out of first gear, Scholars absolutely dreadful.
  10. One team fit and very well coached the other unfit and poorly coached, great result and performance.
  11. Cumbrian born and bred but never heard "codded"
  12. Both parents Scottish and played RU for Hawick , not sure how much of a Scot you want ?
  13. Whitehaven will be better prepared this season and can see them picking enough points up at home to stay up.
  14. Think it's imperative to get out of this league ASAP, sounding more like funding could be cut for champ 1 clubs, could mean the drawbridge being lifted with clubs left behind.
  15. 19 million visitors 2019 into the lakes 10 miles away Izzy or alternatively you could move to the stunning holiday destination's of Wigan, Bradford, Castleford or Wakefield??
  16. Bring them to Cumbria pretty sure the support they would get would be fantastic.
  17. Very ironic that after all the criticism aimed at the timing of Toronto's withdrawal primarily by Elstone, he now bails out weeks before the season starts and possibly the biggest year in the sports history.
  18. That's my point the game shouldn't be run by the strongest or the weakest clubs, but the game can't progress because the weakest is the majority. The game should be governed by an independent body or individual over a period of time with powers to make change , and like any democratic society if they don't bring success etc they are replaced.
  19. You could put it another way and say do some clubs in the SL justify their 1.8million a year , champ 600k a year and league 1 their 75k a year?? The games being held back by mediocrity and I believe Elstone picked the wrong horse .
  20. The game is run like a pigeon fanciers racing club,it's an embarrassment!! every member only interested in their own clubs interest. Until the game is run for the whole benefit of the sport it will continue to go from one cock up to another.
