Defunct RL clubs like Trafford borough, Carlisle border raiders, Nottingham city, Scarborough pirates, Runcorn  and Lancashire lynx on here??

I'm a (an ex-) fan of Cardiff Blue Dragons, Bridgend Blue Dragons, South Wales RL club, Celtic Crusaders (Bridgend), South Wales Scorpions and West Wales Raiders. Finally, the good people of Wales are building the game from the ground up.

This is possibly the most profound observation on the subject of UK RL development in the history of making observations on the subject of UK RL development.

Regularly went to watch Runcorn Highfield at Canal Street. Also watched them at Hoghton Road, St Helens Fc and Prescot Cables FC. Needless to say they didn't win many. When John Cogger turned up the team improved, but when he left for Oldham it all went to pot!

RL seemed more progressive back in the 80’s&90’s regrading expansion inside and outside of the heartlands.

really miss the border raiders if I’m honest.

Carlisle had a really good side , went to some right royal battles at DP and Gillford Park

Maybe you still can. Wasn’t Dr K going to bring RL to Liverpool?

Ha ha yeah, so he said. If someone threw a billion at it it wouldn’t work though.
