  1. Just throwing a name out there who personally I would love to see get a HC job Dave Elliott
  2. Who is considered to be the favourite for the job? Trying to think of an experienced coach that's available, surely that's the way Town will go next
  3. I think the key to Toronto's longevity will be success, they've had a good few years nearly got back to back promotions and are currently sitting top of the Championship so the fans are used to having it quite well. The true gauge will be when they get to SL and aren't winning every game and go through tough times we'll see if they really are a novelty or here for the long term I'm not being negative, sports fans are incredibly fickle and when the going gets tough some just leave. It'll make things even tougher because TW have some incredible competition from the other sports in Toronto so if one team aren't doing so great they could always go to another sport in the meanwhile. As for the Ottawa and NY bids my only real worry about them coming in is the player pool is so tiny especially in the UK is that is their enough players to go around and of sufficient quality? Or will these teams be the last call of top NRL players wanting to experience USA sport and get a final big payday? I do agree however that it's a very exciting time for the sport
  4. How is Xavier getting on so far in his time at the Skolars? He came with a good reputation and playing for a great club over in NZ, Northcote Tigers. I was expecting good progress
  5. Where do you think? To the NRL of course. Many players have burnt their bridges over there and no club was interested in them, but they know that if they come here pull some trees up they'll get noticed and clubs over in Australia will think they have learned their lesson so they get another chance. It's good for the clubs over here in the short term and fans because we get to see these genuinely talented boys, Barba, Carney, Hastings etc but they're here for a stepping stone and to get noticed. We either get past it players looking for a last pay cheque or boys who have been a bit naughty and looking to show they have learned their lesson
  6. Another Australian that has burnt bridges over in the NRL and no club was interested in him but of course SL were. He's only 22 as soon as his stock rises with some good performances he'll be back away
  7. Yeah I saw him play for England yesterday and for Warrington this year and he looks a really bright prospect. Some very talented boys in this U16s squad and some lads were missing as well
  8. Is George Roby a relative of James? Some unbelievable names in this squad!
  9. I watched the England v France U16s last year when it was held at Kingston Park and one lad in particular had a great game that day and I thought I'll remember his name and see where he ends up he was called Guilhem Munuera how is he getting on since then?
  10. Yes http://www.rugby-league.com/england/article/52881/watch-france-u-v-england-youth
  11. At the World Cup he was in the top 10 for both metres made and tackles made, absolute workhorse and solid as a rock defensively. Attacking wise he was class before he went to Australia but defensively he's went to another level since going over. Him, McMeeken and Milner are completely different players
  12. I've heard the Australian schoolboys are touring here the end of the year
  13. The main thing about that really irritates me about these RL events and I mean all of them is ticket prices. It doesn't pay to book in advance, for an example I booked tickets as soon as they were announced for last Magic and a few months or so later they had a Black Friday sale on 40% off, then a few more sales with % off, then a few weeks before Magic the prices were slashed to about £20 for the weekend when I had payed a bit more than double than that. And the same happens for GF, CC and the rest. It's watering down the product and putting people off buying early when they can just wait and get them cheaper a bit closer to the time. I'm really not surprised that early ticket sales of any event don't do well then when the day comes the crowds look decent and it's as you were after all the worrying about advanced sales being down. It's not that hard to figure out
