R.L. MIddle Eights

If all scores go wrong we could have Toronto, Toulouse and London joining Catalan in Super League next season at the expense of Salford Widnes and Hull KR. Then if its one up one down from next season we will never see those three for years back up. SL will have gone forever then.

The mission to get Toronto into SL is a farce.

It is a total embarrassment.

Why don't they wrap it up for good?

Desperate times for RL.

One of these days you are going to come on here and say something with a hint of a compliment about the finest team game in existence. RUGBY LEAGUE.

Posted by: jarvo (28868)  Report abuse
You miss the point.

It is the way the game is being run.

It's pitiful.

Whereas FIFA is a model of honesty and no corruption????

Nothing to do with honesty or corruption.

It's the basics, and making the game watchable again.

RL is a Lancashire and Yorkshire game; with a few add-ons. But NOT and never will be played in Canada.

Let's not kid ourselves. Expand it by all means, but stick to the old traditions and make it slick and up to date.

Two up and two down. Play the RLCC at Old Trafford in October. And play a top four play off again for added interest.

SL Champions are the ones who finish first.

What do you think?

Canít disagree jarvo....but would sky?

Let Sky wrestle the Challenge Cup rights off the BBC.

It's for the best.

It would give that famous old trophy a new lease of life. It certainly deserves it.

Sadly some of the areas classed as ď the heartland of RLĒ simply cannot support a team. When I was young there were Salford, Swinton, Cumbrian clubs etc. But people donít click the turnstiles any more. I am sure a lot of the things you mention will be adopted by the new SL management committee who obviously realize theneed for change. As for expansion overseas I am sure that is Sky driven but am undecided on the merits. Time will tell. I am sure I donít need to tell you that Wolves were the leaders in English clubs dipping their toes in the European waters and look where that is now.
