With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I can't see how a women's team is anything other than beneficial. It won't distract from the men's game and certainly won't divert funds.  According to rugby_league.com there are funding opportunities to grow the game both in community and with the women's game. It will also allow full use of the hollinwood site.

The money available for a pro team to be able, say for example, renovate a newly acquired training ground = zero.

The money available for women's and community to do the same?  A lot more.

It's a win win!

the allotted funding from the rfl is i for community clubs only and is 1.4 million.there are  300 community clubs that can apply for a funding grant not a fortune for the clubs.

Asked Tony Barrow, over 30 years ago, for help in setting up a Women's RL team. He immediately said no ☹️

Sadly for a while RL was one of the leading sports for women, then it was ignored for a few decades, watched other sports take massive leads, but is now slowly clawing its way back.

Agreed. Surely anything that raises the profile of rugby league in the town can only be a good thing.
