  1. The forwards need some stiffening but Cunningham was a surprise for me, not that I know much about him. Apparently they are both hard working types.
  2. Here's a list of the nations ranking going back to 2013: https://rugbyl.blogspot.com/2019/11/2013-19-world-rankings-men.html
  3. Thanks for that info. The number of teams deleted was unprecedented so I thought there must be something behind it.
  4. I know an article about this is floating around the general section, but as it belongs here and is now finalised for this year.... Anyway, the big mystery for me is how do teams get added and deleted from the list? Four were added and seven deleted. Some of those removed are active so it must be to do with governance. For more on it, just follow the link: https://rugbyl.blogspot.com/2019/11/2019-world-rankings-men.html https://rugbyl.blogspot.com/2019/11/2019-world-rankings-women.html
  5. A salary cap works well if all the clubs In a competition are not too far apart financially. Where it becomes a problem is when some clubs can spend up large but can’t because some much poorer clubs they play against would get left behind. The marquee player was introduced to stop all the best players going elsewhere for more money but it doesn’t address the problem of a large financial disparity between clubs. If clubs got most of their revenue from a media deal, they all would get similar funding. If a wealthy investor wants to get involved with the game, he really can’t do much with a cap in place. I can see both sides.
  6. I think GB needs to be put to rest. It's had it's day when it actually meant something, as Dave Woods clearly explained.
  7. Thanks to the moderator who fixed my repeated post.
  8. Not easy to execute a stunned donkey when you're riding it.
  9. What benefit would Red Star get from possibly one game? To improve you need regular matches which the cup doesn't offer. The money spent could be used in better ways.
  10. How much would an average player expect to earn in league One?
  11. From a player perspective, considering they are amateur at this level, would gaps not be welcome? Likewise employers would find the spacings advantageous surely.
  12. I wasn't expecting too much from the GB side but wouldn't have been shocked had they come back undefeated. In fact I would have predicted 4-0 over 0-4 if they were the only two options. What transpired was a shock to me. Modern sport is about small margins but I wouldn't have picked four mediocre to poor performances in a row. If they play like that in the WC, they may not get past the group stage.
  13. No one voted for did as well as expected. Overwhelmingly considered woeful. Not surprising but the percentages were more one sided than I expected.
  14. I do a bit on attendances and the ones in France are hard to find. I'd happily do articles on my blog if I had the data. In fact any historical data on French RL I would welcome.
  15. I was under the impression that the GB results count as England.
  16. He's been a great coach in his hay day but that’s in the past.
  17. Just for the right to play the song? Absolutely too much.
  18. I think it is needed but what would it achieve? Is it likely to change anything?
  19. I did a summary of the tour but you will have your opinions on it. https://rugbyl.blogspot.com/2019/11/gb-tour-2019.html For mine I think things need to change but realise it may not be the time to be doing it.
  20. I've put together a summary of results for the women's International game. https://rugbyl.blogspot.com/2019/11/international-results-women-2019.html It's surprising how many games are being played.
  21. It will be interesting to follow. Will you be keeping us apprised of results Pulga?
  22. I put together a piece on the above minus tours, WC qualifiers and non test games. https://rugbyl.blogspot.com/2019/11/international-results-2019-october.html
