Today, I came across a copy of the 1948-49 Rugby League Challenge Cup Final, Bradford Northern v Halifax, Wembley programme. Amongst the programme notes: "Rugby League in the South - Efforts are being made to introduce the game of Rugby League Football into the London area......" They go on to talk about the introduction of a competitive amateur competition for the South (a bit like the newly formed Southern Conference Amateur Rugby League?) On the other hand, we have 40 years of London (now Broncos), plus Catalans, Toulouse, Toronto, maybe Ottawa and New York. And it made me wonder..... have we been here before? What really is the future of RL? Will it stay the same as it is now, will it go truly national, will it go international with champions league style glamour and coverage? Will Superleague & RFL pull together or pull apart ? I have no answers, only questions, so I thought I should float this question to a wider and more experienced readership.
For even the most one eyed supporters every club seems to have a cringe moment, something that even the most committed find embarrassing be it new ground name, nickname, mascot, off the wall signing or publicity stunt, awful kit, merger, or questionable directors, what's yours?
