What happened to Elton Welsby?
David Dockhouse Host posted a topic in The General Rugby League ForumWe caught up with him. Born in St Helens, worked with players in the 80s, famous picture of big Mal, many RL links. Also a big Everton fan, so I got to speak about them also. Two episodes upcoming. This is a taster and a chance to see Elton now, he's talking about a player throwing him into the big bath, who do you think the player was from this clip? Clue, mid 80s, cheeky chap.

Armed Forces Rugby League 🏉
David Dockhouse Host posted a topic in The General Rugby League ForumThe Dockhouse Rugby show was privileged to be invited to the Forces Rugby League press conference earlier this week. We were updated on the forces rugby league development, the tri series later this year, introduction to ambassadors for both men’s and women’s teams and an insight into the unique support towards the teams and players. I think it’s fair to say Rugby League has been a slow burner in the forces although they have performed admirably in the Challenge Cup in previous years, but recently they have seen massive growth in terms of allocated time, resources, and player pool. The introduction recently of the women teams has seen several already make the jump to the top levels of Women’s RL in the UK with many joining Super League teams. Both the men’s and women’s teams draw players from areas not known for playing rugby league further spreading the code to new areas. How much do you know of the history of forces RL? Well ,the British Army Rugby League team is the official rugby league team representing the British Army, likewise the RAF and Navy Rugby League Teams. The British Army Team was founded in 1994 when the Army first recognised rugby league as an official sport and lifted a ban on it. The forces teams are able to play in the Challenge Cup. The team play their home matches at Aldershot Military Stadium in Aldershot, Hampshire. An Army women's team was set up in 2019 and continues to grow. The Army Vs RAF game, both men’s and women’s will be televised and comes just a week before the start of the 2022 Rugby League World Cup. The forces tri-series later this year contains some mouth-watering encounters. These exciting games are supported by big name ambassadors Jonathan Davies, Adrian Morley and Paul Sculthorpe which shows the demand for forces RL. Paul Sculthorpe was on hand to help promote this thrilling Rugby League initiative earlier this week when he spoke to the Dockhouse Rugby show at the Forces press conference in York. The Army Rugby League team were awarded the Armed Forces team of the year which further demonstrates the rapid growth of both the standard but also the commitment to RL from the forces. Please check out numerous interviews, videos and updates from the Dockhouse Rugby Show from the press conference in York on Monday 7th February 2022 Link to first interview here, https://www.facebook.com/groups/1361836814234490/permalink/1427695960981908/?sfnsn=scwspmo&ref=share
