Zero RL coverage. Absolutely nothing on their front page. Pish all.

5 day old strories about utter nonsense and yet no RL.

We have a lot of work to do....

Several years ago I would have been just as outraged as you, but I think the 'RL community' only has itself to blame. The people who run the sport and most that live in the towns it's played have a hostile and negative attitude towards initiatives which would increase the geographic audience of the sport. Look it's simple if we want the media to talk about RL there needs to be changes in so many areas, the way the game is run by the governing body but also the clubs and it's supporters. England simply do not play enough or even compete in any brand competitions like the 6 nations for people to take notice and this is largely because clubs want to play as many games as possible. Sometimes in life you get exactly what you deserve and this applies here. Changes need to happen in uk RL and that's not the fault of the media.

I don't like to personally attack individuals and I've said it quite a few times...Nigel Wood was the worst thing that could have happened to the sport in this country.

Definitely the worst thing that happened to our sport in Halifax

At least he’s out of the way now. He’s only running the international game 👀

We have had one media guy post on here saying he had asked for news/info/announcements from the Clubs or RFL,( I forget which), and was still waiting.  Clubs are keeping in touch with fans but could be a fault for not giving info to more than the local newspaper. 

Maybe John Drake could give better detail, but I know that the 'media guy' I mention, was crying out for info.  IMO we have to accept that many 'journo's' feed off the internet and dont do the hard digging anymore.  If they have to be spoon fed RL should do that.

By the way, Hull have signed Joe Cator 🙂

Could not agree more , dragged the game down the drain with zero vision that has left the complete game in a real old mess; sacked so many whilst taking a huge pay deal and massive pay off

Given the absolute shambles the RFL have made of this tour and the predicted small gates it might not be the worst thing in the world if the media ignored it.
