Griff and LBC this is always going to be a point of contention between fans, when I was a lot younger and played the game, being a winger or centre I was not over endowed with weight and therefore glad that at times I would bot be crushed by the big bruisers every tackle and had the chance at times to use my speed to help turn defence into attack.
Every body has an opinion and it is a long time since this forum had a debate without some snide remarks . Thank you guys.
My Humble Opinion Only - let the knockers begin.

Then Griff what is the point of a scrum down, get rid of them altogether and just have hand overs, because at present second row and loose are not even binding , some times even the front row don t bend their backs.
What would you do to restart the game?


I'd have a scrum. They may not bind but there's more space out wide because seven players are stood in a ball at the scrum.

I don't want every play to start with a ptb. I said so earlier. The game would become too samey.

Aye.

I have no issue at all with Rugby League being played in Canada, the USA or wherever, the more the merrier.

However each country should develope the game within, from the ground up and let it find it's own level, how else can it really become part of their culture and become strong, if they are truly committed then they will succeed without the British RFL showboat approach.

It just seems that anyone can buy their way in to the present without having contributed one penny in money or time and effort in the past and it lasts as long as the money does.
All this fast track this and fast track that approach has proved is the it leads to more failures than successes.

As I have said before, the RFL have to the responsibilty first and formost to the British game and not to some other country.

Even in an advisary role the RFL are hardly the model examples to follow in how the game should be run responsibly.
