  1. Good to hear rl in Toronto isn’t dead. Hopefully the national team will still play games there and there will be more Toronto games in the future. Canada should definitely be looked at as a area for expansion by the IRL, ERL or maybe the RFL/SL would ever think about going back
  2. Brilliant for French rl to have 2 French teams finish top of both divisions. Hopefully they can build on this and lead up to a French WC in 2025
  3. I think you need 2 strong divisions for P and R to be successful and sustainable and we don’t have a strong second division. Don’t get me wrong I’d rather have P&R than licensing but if you want to grow the game you need to invest money and time into new markets.
  4. Absolutely. I never understood having the Challenge Cup semi final at Bolton (aside from it being cheap to hire). Magic Weekend at Newcastle, CC semis at Sheffield, maybe one England game a year in Coventry/ Midlands then obviously cup final at wembley. Maybe even play more high profile internationals in Wales
  5. Tbf I think any team that is promoted should be exempt. We’ve just seen clubs yo-yo the past few years. I always thought the qualifiers were brilliant and better suited RL than the current one up one down.
  6. The problem with managing and planning expansion is its very difficult to do if you have promotion and relegation. It can be done as previously Catalans we’re exempt from relegation (for 3 years I think?). It would be great if Toulouse come up but pointless if they just go back down
  7. Agree. Target areas like Newcastle and Coventry. Maybe even take it abroad to France or Spain but for now I think we need to maximise its potential in Newcastle and the uk
  8. Makes you worry what the parent is like at home. I can kind of understand people getting worked up at open age but to act like some people do at junior games, I just don’t understand it.
  9. How do you get more neutrals to stay in the ground? We need to make SL more high profile and get people who don’t necessarily watch RL to come because it’s an event. The RU World Cup played 3 games in Newcastle and got 50k+ for each game. I think having 2 venues could be a good idea. Maybe have it on a bank holiday with Newcastle on Saturday and France for example on the Sunday
  10. I’ve reffed for almost 3 years now. Similar to you I find most players to be fine, 95% of abuse is from coaches the rest from spectators. I’m based in Leeds and find teams from Castleford tend to give you the worst abuse. I think everyone who refs could write a book about their experiences. I recently did an u11 game where a parent was shouting for his kid to knock the other team out
  11. The clubs voting on a structure (that non will unanimously agree on) is ludicrous. Should be an independent commission to lay a road map out for what SL will look like in the next 10-20 years. What’s the long term aim for attendance, sponsorship money, TV rating, participation? No one in the sport has a plan. In 10 years time the same thing will be happening. Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas. The sport is being run by greedy individuals and it’s boring
  12. Leon pryce, Ellery Hanley, Steve McNamara, Kevin Sinfield all have sons playing for SL clubs, are there any more if this next generation?
  13. Because if you had a positive test you still need to isolate to stop the virus spreading. Come the 16th August if you’ve had 2 jabs you don’t need to isolate if you test positive. Whether things will change for pro sports players idk
  14. What’s happened to them? Seen clubs covering up their logo on kits and some clubs wearing 2 SL sleeve patches to cover them up. Have they gone bust?
  15. Thankfully I’ve never heard racist abuse at a rl game but the book needs to be thrown at whoever it was. I’m sure Warrington will put their foot down with it
