Re: GB v NZ 3rd test Spoiler

I don't disagree with what is being said It might not be popular and you could point out that it is damaging the International game BUT I think any player that moves to the NRL should no longer be eligible for international selection Yes. That means no more Bateman but we need to disincentivise pla...

Re: Rugby League Ashes returning and England’s newest stadium to host

As much as I want to go to these games, I’m angry that massive games for our sport are being held at football grounds AGAIN 🤬 much as i agree Josie i think if we are to grow the game and attract bigger crowds then we need to use football grounds. i mentioned on a post recently about GB that i was u...

Re: Will Wigan Warriors take on AUSTRALIA next year?

i bloody hope so

this is something that i think has been missing from RL / International RL for too long. i'm not saying they need to be on tour for months on end, but a proper 3 test series with games against a couple of top SL clubs and Cumbria (was always on the tour) would be great for the game

Re: Fancy diving

whilst i think that McGillvary should have scored, i think it also highlights that you need players playing in their natural positions. I am not blaming Hardaker, but does anyone else think that he could have passed earlier or taken on the line himself (little dummy and back himself against the insi...

Re: Poor attendance

Agree with most points here regarding coverage and promotion. Playing devils advocate, what is the BBCs real incentive to dedicate time, resources and money to advertising Rugby League on their website, radio channels, tv advertising etc? As a service that we pay for they should be promoting not on...

Re: Tonga v GB Lions spoiler

i think the performance probably summed up the team selection and some of the general performances of the players over the last 12 months. 2 wingers massively out of form, although i thought McGillvary played well 1st half, but only seen 2nd half highlights. Hall IMO was one of best wingers in the w...

Re: Poor attendance

I agree entirely with your comments Pieman. I realised you weren’t having a personal dig at me btw 😊 The RFL/Super League Europe/SKY/BBC really need to sort out what they want from our game! They want to show live games but have no interest at all in advertising, in advance, on any type of media in...

Re: Poor attendance

pieman's comments about the Nines are surely fair; the BBC RL site (the obvious first port of call) has been deafeningly silent about it. Personally I only even knew about it at first because of posts on Aussie league sites I follow. Not even highlights (do nine-minute long halves need highlights?)...

Re: Poor attendance

I know this is off the Wigan attendance topic (but its a follow on to the 1 of the points i was making earlier). I have just seen on Face book that England have won a 9's game. I didnt even know there was a 9's competition going on. that could be just that i dont have sky and live and breathe RL ev...
