  1. It's quite simple really. RL in France failed to professionalise itself when it needed to whilst it was still extremely in the 1950s-1970s. There have been people who promised to invest in a fully professional competition with all the major markets in France included i.e Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux etc... But all these investors where like the Denver guy, all talk. Our game needs guys who will spend millions of euros in creating a fully professional comp in the France that is how the game will be taken to the next level. It needs private funding there's nothing more FFRXIII and the volunteers on the ground can do to grow the game. They should only be responsible for the grassroots part of the game. TL;DR: RL in France needs a professional arm and private money to do so SL is not the solution to make France tier one their player pool is very small. A lot of people use New Zealand as an example with only one NRL side but NZ have much more professional players due to the opportunities in the NRL. Super league is a poison chalice for France all the attention has been moved away from their domestic comp. There's way too many foreign players in the dragons but the dragons don't want to get relegated. Even if Toulouse get promoted I guarantee you they'll bring in more foreigners to say up instead of bringing in through more local talent. But it's really the only opportunity for professional RL they have. Tl;DR SL isn't the solution but really it's the only concrete opportunity they have They also need to play more tests but it's understandable why they don't do to costs and not being able to get pro players off duty
  2. And CTE isn't even caused by concussions it's caused by repeated blows to the head. Shocking he made that statement
  3. One previous user made the point that sale have more fans due to union fans in the north of England having less teams to support. So comparing to attendances with sake might not help salfords situation.
  4. I agree it’s starts young. Another reason why RL needs to get into schools.
  5. I've also been monitoring the Sale Sharks attendances they are better than Salfords but the real question is why? On the field Salford are clearly delivering the superior product.
  6. I'll continue to monitor the as the season goes on. Some good positives there though.
  7. Is it stadium location? Is it lack of game day experience? Is it unfriendly kick off times for family’s? Or is RL just a minority sport in the greater Manchester area?
  8. Let’s just use st Helen’s jersey design then change the logo simple
  9. Its a huge factor a lot of t2 nations move their seasons just to not clash with RU
  10. I'm not the one who made to claim that SBW will get more kids in Toronto playing RL.
  11. Increase the cap to compete with the nrl
  12. How many more kids are playing rugby league now in Toronto because of SBW?
  13. That’s another thing I don’t understand They spent so much on SBW imagine if they spent that on junior development and growing the game.
  14. They need leeway in the cap to keep them in Super League considering TW doesn't value junior development at this stage
  15. In my opinion it will just make those clubs reliant on the British system
