Re: Salary Cap

Rugby Unions International popularity in comparison to their club game is remarkable. One thing that they have on their side that we don't is the 6 Nations. A competition that everybody wants to win and everybody wants to attend that can be won arguably by 4 of the 6 teams in competition. Its hard ...

Re: Who should play fullback v Leeds?

I played fullback, wing and centre and centre felt very similar to fullback. so much comes through the channel its like being the last man in all shapes and sizes. You still just have to hit your man and try hit him hard, fast and low which negates the offload At centre you defend your outside shou...

Re: Super League clubs

The truth often hurts and he’s right as far as I am concerned. The response is laughable. Securing and retaining the worlds best players is a priority for SL? I am sure it is but I’ll have some of whatever Elstone is on if he thinks there’s currently much chance of it doing that. My thoughts exactl...

Magic wand

If you had a magic wand, what 3 things would you change immediately to try and make Rugby League better in the UK. (Better crowds, more take up in schools, better coverage, higher standard etc).

Salary Cap

I know the Salary Cap was put in place to try and equal the playing field, give every team an opportunity to win and to stop a monopoly of 1 or few great teams.

Re: Wigan Warriors ace George Williams facing new competition for a Great Britain spot

Petero Civoniceva and others played for Aus team and many others not born in Australia :roll: :roll: Moved to Aus before his first birthday according to Wiki. In such situations I think its perfectly fine players have a choice between where they were born and where they actually lived and grew up.
