  1. Perhaps it is just me, but a sport that is about to willingly bankrupt every remaining club outside Lancashire and Yorkshire just might not deserve much in the way of national coverage
  2. I am told there are amateur clubs in St Helens. Perhaps if all funding was removed from that club, people might still go to a game
  3. As well as having a management structure in the hands of clubs who never agree on anything and an annual obsession with changing the league structure
  4. And also having to do all the development work in their area, as the RFL don't seem to see this as part of their remit.
  5. Absolutely. There are simply not enough players in London of a sufficient standard to replace those who will leave because they see playing as their job. Skolars players play for Skolars because lower league one is their level and I cannot say that any of the loan players I have seen at Skolars recently from Broncos have looked above that level. Hughes would be better off getting rid of the academy and using that money to have one last blast at turning it around on the pitch. Tell the RFL who have time and again promised assistance but never given it, but have rather left the development of the sport in the capital entirely to a couple of underresourced clubs, a burden not put on other clubs, to get stuffed, as well as those clubs who have been happy to pick off London academy products for free without putting anything back into development there.
  6. It has all the marks of toys been thrown out of the playpen as has been seen on a number of occasions before such as after the Leigh semi and over the Toulouse trip. However, in traditional Brewster's Millions fashion, a full time academy is still going to be run so that any decent players go north or to union with London fans possibly getting to enjoy whatever is left over.
  7. Raiders, Storm, Panthers, Knights, Sea Eagles, Rabbitohs, Warriors, Tigers 432 5 Tigers v Bulldogs

  9. Oops lost track of time so I will go Titans (I know), Sea Eagles, Panthers, Tigers, knights, Eels, Roosters, Broncos

  12. Roosters, Tigers, Broncos, Rabbitohs, Raiders, Storm, Titans, Sea Eagles 320 3 Broncos v Cowboys
  13. If you are interested in the music side of that year, David Hepworth's "1971" is well worth a read
  14. Eels, Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Drafgons, Sharks 432 6 5 or 6
  15. Titans, Sea Eagles, Sharks, Cowboys, Storm, Panthers, Broncos, Rabbitohs 2 432 Win by 6-11
  16. Any statement which contains a reference to Ronnie Biggs may give an indication of which century the writer's mind lives in
  17. It's not just 14 years, it is 41 or 126 years depending how you want to count. The butchers, bakers and candlestick makers have never deemed London important enough for a strategic plan. Much better to spend your time on internecine warfare in a vacuum
