In term of the West Midlands: There's also the Droitwich Spa.... sorry I meant Worcester,... or possibly Birminham Jaguars. Yet to play a game but appear very organised and playing at great facilities and an existing under age setup.

They are pretty strong on the media side. I'm sure someone on here is involved in the Jaguars and can provide an update on what they are about and their plans.?

As a Bears fan I can tell you there's no great secret to the Bears. The are a well run family club which does brilliantly with limited resources. They are not cash rich, and never have been, but they

money, continuity and luck they've got some money, which means they're not hand to mouth ? Why do you think Coventry have money?. They are owned by a young family man who does not put money

Yep. A number of teams in the midlands have always had decent junior set ups but getting them regular games without loads of travel is always a problem. I really believe the midlands can become a majo

Would love to see a similar grassroots explosion in the West Midlands like that in the north east with the thunder.

Hopefully this will help kick start that. The midlands has a great opportunity because there are also a number of community clubs. Regular matches for junior players is a key to long term growth of the game

I'm still waiting for that apology newbe, you've gone very quiet 

Armchair critics, will always shout the loudest and be first to point the finger and even accuse those that are actually doing all the hard work.  Sad fact of life.

As I understand it, the work Coventry hope to achieve this coming year means that more youngsters from the satellite clubs can take part in localised fixtures. That has to be a good thing.

There's similar work going on in a number of locations across West and East Midlands. Most of those clubs are purely junior set-ups, building from the bottom up. Covid permitting, this year promises to be the largest in terms of participation, number of festivals and localised fixtures for a number of years in the region. In the East Midlands, at some junior age groups there are informal merit type structures in place this year.

Turning junior teams into open age teams is difficult, and many have failed in the past. Give it 5 years and we may well see a huge growth in open-age rugby league in East and West Midlands.

I really believe the midlands can become a major region (outside the heartlands) for rugby league. Let's hope developments in Coventry and also elsewhere in the midlands is the start of something great for the region
