  1. Personally speaking it just confirms that RL is ripe for a take-over with big investment from overseas. P
  2. Needs a total re-brand though thats for sure. Also i predict some serious American money on the horizon and a deal with the NFL. P
  3. Lets see needs something exciting to be announced today otherwise its a bit of a damp squib:( P
  4. 2 x 10 would be a disaster might as well go to 14 now. My prediction * 14 teams * Toulouse stay in * Winners of Championship up obviously * London Broncos back in P
  5. Not too sure for a one off although there seems to be around 4 different levels of hospitality. We have 4 places for club premium at SL matches which i think is around 9000 euros for the season (They also give us 2 free places for our boys 17 and 13 who come during school holidays) so that equates not counting the boys to around Euros 170 PP per match. Paul
  6. Its been a long time coming:) Match day corporate revenue already can be as much as 200 thousand euros, and there is no shortage of companies that want to spend money at the Dragons the entire corporate experience is as good as it gets its up there with the best Twickenham 6 Nations Premiership Football etc:) Paul
  7. As a Kent CCC full member i know how you feel, i have suggested that next season in between innings we have cost cutter Graves and Harrison taken out into the middle of the pitch and put in the stocks and pelted with rotten apples:) Paul
  8. The only way forward for our great game is a total re-brand which personally i expect to happen within the next 3 years. NRL EUROPE Here we come:) Paul
  9. Fages seems to have no interest in playing for France injury or no injury i predicted at the start of the season that regardless he would not appear in the WC for them. Just watch Joe Chan fly he will be sensational after a couple of seasons at the Storm the next SBW his ability to unload in the tackle is superb and will only get better. Paul PS/Remember them when they first came over in 2006 we used to call their club car the Chan Van with all the little rascals in it:)
  10. Any idea of what the crowd looks like only around the 3rd SLGF i have missed as here in Spain at present. Paul
  11. Are Samoa on paper better than England YES Can England beat Samoa on the day YES Its going to be the best World Cup ever:) New Zealand though unstoppable:) Australia not at the races. Paul
  12. This is further down the road than people think:) Paul
  13. The correct choice he 100% deserves it. Any chance he has any England connections :)))) I will have a look at Ancestry tonight:)))))) Paul
  14. If this comes off and from what i have seen it will, then hats of to Nigel Wood. Paul
  15. Its New Zealand for me will be fantastic for the game there as well:) Paul
  16. Its going to be interesting to see how the crowd holds up after last years disappointing attendance (28000) hopefully back up to 70000 again:) Leeds should take i guess at least 20000 Saints fans most be bored with all their success. GOOD LUCK to both teams and fingers crossed for a classic. Paul
  17. Problem Harry is that there were very few players available Paul
  18. Its not free the tickets are paid for with one free beer and it will be for students only. Nothing wrong with that as the corporates pay decent money we spend 1500 a match for the VIP at the Dragons (6 persons) and around 500 at Toulouse for 4 and are happy to pay it as many corporates are. P
  19. Didn't really go into that much as i am more interested in the commercial side, however they did mention that several players have signed new deals including Guy Armitage who i was not aware spent much of his childhood growing up in Nice. Paul
  20. Hello Fellow Lovers of League:) For those that are interested. I spent yesterday up in Toulouse and had a nice lunch with the commercial team main points that came out of it. * Confirmed will be full time next season * Will make 100% effort to get back up to SL and sign the players needed to keep them there next time * Disappointed with the season but learned much to be positive about * Confident that crowds will grow next season to average of 5000 + on the back of locals like a winning team new promotions etc * Big push marketing wise on social media (Already very impressive) special deal for students with one free beer on entry band entertainment etc (Suggested deal with bus company to run them back to and from campus) * Local sponsorship doing really well and expected to increase by around 30% next season All good stuff WELL DONE TOULOUSE:) Cheers Paul PS/Damm good lunch went easy as a 2 and half hour drive back home:)
  21. Whatever its going to be a great season can't wait to start to go to matches:) Paul
  22. Terry the man is manager FANTASTIC:) cannot wait to meet up with him again RL legend :)))) Paul
  23. Lets see how many ,i sadly have my doubts no-one in RL circles seems to have a clue what is going on at RLWC:( Paul
  24. Get hold of some of that raw talent its ire man:) Paul
