  1. This could be a growth area. The RFL could work with pro clubs and community clubs and set up tag leagues across the country. The community clubs could enter teams and local businesses/companies. They could even reach out to union and football teams and invite them to enter teams. Men's, women's, mixed and youth teams could all have their own leagues.
  2. At the moment I would say they are but they've got to stay competitive now to be classed as a top 4
  3. Thats good to hear. I think Tonga have become most fans second team at International level and are definitely a threat to the top 3
  4. Does the expulsion of Tonga RLs governing body from the International RL mean they can't compete in major tournaments?
  5. I would definitely go to a NRL game over here. If built up before hand I think they would draw a big crowd
  6. Is Newcastle and the NE starting to become a bit of a hotbed for the game?
  7. Players that spring to mind are Watts, Watkins (hopefully finds form this year), Naulago, Williams, Griffin, Charnley, Tomkins, Makinson, Johnston Maybe a couple of young players might put their hands up such as Walker, Ashton, Lees, Smithies, Byrne
  8. How different do you think the England team will look compared to the GB team that played last year? Not wanting a Eng vs GB debate but GB team was essentially England anyway. I want to discuss/debate which players will get recalled, make debuts or keep their place. Aussies at home is a big challenge but with the right selections I think we've got a good chance of winning the series
  9. I wanted to vote for MoM on OurLeague app but there's no option to vote for Philbin
  10. I'm not a big fan of England using heritage players but if he's served in the British army then that's good enough to represent us at RL
  11. I was going to ask if he qualifies for England. How long has he been over here?
  12. Id like to see the Americas emulate the Euro Championships format that is being discussed on another thread.
  13. I was going to say Bradford but think they may have lost a couple towards the back end of the season
  14. Thats what I thought this thread was about. There's quite a few towns and cities, especially in the North West, that could be targeted for expansion at amateur level. Even towns with a few clubs could be targeted to increase the amount of clubs and even strengthen some existing clubs. Leagues such as NW Counties, Yorkshire League, Cumbria and Hull and District as well as NE League should be working with the RFL and Super League to increase playing numbers and clubs
  15. I think most top sportsmen are interchangeable between sports as long as they start the game early enough. Most children who excel in one sport are usually good at others too. A lot of footballers would have made good RL players but football hoover up most of the top sportsmen as children denying them the chance to have a go at RL
  16. Sounds like someone is trying to derail this positive thread
  17. How long is the drive from Workington to London Skolars or Newcastle to West Wales?
  18. I agree it's not the right set up in Elite 1 for this yet. The French League would need a revamp or a league above Elite 1 to be created with these clubs and clubs representing population areas in France competing and maybe even cross conference games with League 1. Like I say it's not doable yet but that would be my preferred choice if the chance ever arose
  19. I think if League one is to continue spreading it needs to be in conferences. If the money was there I'd like the French Elite 1 to be used for teams around the Mediterranean and southern Europe. Valencia, Belgrade etc could join and other clubs could be admitted with French Cities and regions, eg Aude, Avignon, etc. I know this isn't doable at the moment but if these clubs got together maybe it could happen
  20. Whoever finishes bottom as they've performed the worst over the season. The better run clubs don't usually finish last so I'd be happy with whoever
  21. I agree. If Halifax folded I wouldn't become a Bulls or Huddersfield fan I'd just watch amateur RL and hope they were reincarnated at some point. I do think though that if that did happen the other local professional clubs could target local schools and clubs in Halifax to recruit junior fans who maybe wouldn't have the option to be Halifax supporters
  22. I agree. A 13 used to be a bit like a 6 but bigger. Fullback has replaced the 13 as a ball player, linking the middle to the outside backs
  23. I agree Warrington look the strongest but I also like the look of Catalan's spine
  24. Id definitely ditch Sky and subscribe to Amazon if they got RL. How many would do the same?
  25. I agree. If some investment can be made into Africa and African communities in Australia and the UK then we may have some competitive countries in Africa in the future
