  1. It’s not watering down is Darwin’s approach to survival, IF this is implemented ASAP the clubs with cash will stack their squads with the best they can find and build from there, with luck this could see the salary cap raised massively in SL1 forcing clubs to secure income to compete and taking the game forward
  2. To the tune of the Addams family They’re Ugly and They’re Smelly They come from Scholes and Whelley They’ll rob their neighbours telly The Wigan family da da da dah etc
  3. Toronto had already gone bust and a spot was vacant, so they filled the spot that was vacant as Toronto as an entity had gone
  4. Well it’s taken them too long to see sense, and Sky will love the 2 tens for the next tv deal. SL will have 2 games per week From each comp and we get an increased tv deal and a new knock out comp for extra income with the season kicking off with the CC. I would have preferred an extra french club or two in the mix though
  5. Ralphs on a 6 week 'business for beginners' course
  6. I would support that and no away games to be screened in France, then when they have a TV deal an agreement can be struck. Great idea Yipyee
  7. History says James Hargreaves invented the spinning Jenny, a few know otherwise. RL has a similar story
  8. What day will it get called off a) Thursday b) Friday c) Saturday d) Sunday 2pm
  9. The antics of the Cons has certainly clarified the priorities of the Northern game - that is correct We should be looking at 4 French clubs in a 2x 10 SL structure with P&R and 3 year licences, we should be developing the PT elite 1 player pool to FT athletes capable of strengthening France on the international scene. I would be asking these clubs to secure a TV deal, after all Canal+ is paying each RU club something like £7m per season for TV rights. PS I fully support France 2025
  10. We need to support the less wealthy clubs at home when the TV deal is in free fall, TO and Cats should have good leverage to secure a paid deal in France with 1 game per week. Parochial self interest is a great phrase when the reality could be losing founder clubs by moving UK tv subs to an overseas team, which in turn reverses the Parochial tag. Don't ignore your family to welcome a stranger into your life
  11. so 30% less than Leigh 2017 is good for a city the size of Toulouse, 15000 min should be the target and no sky money until there is enough to feed the home game again
  12. We haven't historically, when the Aussies were struggling we toured or supported
  13. Free admission is probably the right rate for many C1 games, OK a fiver at best. Barrows fan base has held up pretty well in recent years especially when compared to other Cumbrian clubs - is it because Barrow is really in Lancashire?
  14. Giving tickets away can only ever be a short term policy, somebody must pay the players staff etc. The issue is after being let in for free you set the price expectations, you then charge a reasonable rate and its deemed too expensive. This has been the downfall of RL since SL started. The quality of the entertainment (game) and the matchday experience are what matters. Currently SL is a joke, poor officials, cheating players, cancelled fixtures, understrength clubs play one week then not the next, terrible covid compliance at some clubs. How do you plan a day at the rugby next
  15. In 2017 I watched a limited England team push Australia all the way in a WC final in Brisbane, travelling the extremities of the 2 nations to get there. Losing in a final to a forward pass which was the only score of the game. Could it be the NRL are running scared?
  16. The reactions of the old guard in Aus shows the changes in from Global to insular - they would have died to have the honour of pulling on the shirt in a WC
