  1. Whats the good news for the Championship? Has anything been announced today?
  2. I completely agree. We need these big events to be in demand long before the finalists are known. If 40k plus tickets or 2/3 of tickets (depending on the venue) can be sold weeks in advance then once the fixture or fixtures are confirmed there can be a scramble for the remaining allocated tickets. RL big events always produce on the field and if they look like a big deal to non RL fans then it should have a positive effect on the whole game
  3. How much are they paying? Is it an increase on the previous deal
  4. Do you think it would weaken Elite 1 too much?
  5. Do you think Carcassonne and Avignon could/should be added to the English Leagues?
  6. Are they hoping there will be 18 full time clubs plus French clubs? Are there any plans for more French clubs to join?
  7. What a negative post Harry. I don't imagine NZ is a big market anyway so it makes no difference to the game over here. I wonder why we don't look for good news stories and positive quotes on this forum to start a thread. They're definitely out there but the majority of us prefer to start a thread on negatives
  8. I'd like to see League 1 continue with enough funding for the clubs, however, I don't think that's going to happen. Underneath that I think any southern expansion should be focused on the Southern Conference for any ambitious clubs to ply their trade until they are ready to step up to League 1. Unfortunately that would require investment which isn't likely to happen.
  9. I'd align Elite 1 and League 1 with p and r to the Championship
  10. Hopefully more French clubs get added over the next few years. Maybe a French RL revival is on the cards
  11. And that's where the problem is. If they did go back to amateur what league could they play in?
  12. It's suggestion for if they went back to being a community club. I'd rather League 1 secured enough funding so all the clubs could stay semi pro and Coventry Bears continued developing the community game in the West Midlands
  13. What about NW counties league with a 2nd team/feeder team playing in the Midlands league? Probably be less travelling than conference league south
  14. I hope so. Bristol is big enough to accommodate quite a lot of community clubs
  15. He sounds bitter because Catalan finished above Saints. There's no other explanation for being so negative about them
  16. Yeah I've heard it mentioned plenty of times. Would be good if they could get a deal, doesnt have to be worth much but would help raise the profile and possibly bring in some sponsorship
  17. Is there any chance that the Championship could get some sort of deal to broadcast some of their games?
  18. I've thought for a while that this approach could be used. SL clubs and any ambitious Championship clubs could adopt a League 1 club like Coventry, Skolars, Doncaster or adopt an ambitious club such as Bristol All Golds, Nottingham, Edinburgh to bring them into League 1. The SL club could loan them players, fund junior development, create pathways for local juniors and maybe play an 'on the road' game in the city. This would obviously have many benefits for the local professional club but it could also be beneficial for the SL club. They get to push their brand into a new market and any of the more promising juniors could be signed by the SL club
  19. Is it time for Avignon to step up to the Championship? They seem to have the pathways in place and could probably generate crowds and commercial income
  20. This is the only thing you get out of all that?
  21. I like the idea of beach rugby league around the country. It could link with the nearest community clubs in the area. South Wales, North Wales, Devon, Brighton, Blackpool, Southport, Whitley Bay/Tynemouth, Bridlington. They all have clubs nearby
  22. Will it be 5 teams next season with the new Exeter team? Do you have links with all the clubs or just Exeter?
