Agreed.

When I was involved with RLC clubs we had to email or fax match reports to an RFL contact, and the RLC website & local teletext pages and media received and published them.

But that was 5+ years ago, now trying to find out info regarding the competitions seems just down to local clubs and their own websites, many of which just aren't up to date (but again are just reliant upon a volunteers).

Indeed. I'm very worried. I remember those RLC days too. Lionel Hurst insisted on high standards, and generally got them. I recall having to text the scores to the RLC within an hour of the final whistle.

You'd think that the RFL might be able to spare half an hour of an employee's time to maintain a simple webpage with the league tables, fixtures and results on. But I'm concerned that there might not be many to record now. The withdrawal of the funded development officers, and the relegation of Broncos from the top flight were two massive blows which, along with the usual problems of one-man bands and a transient playing population, dealt a possibly mortal blow to amateur RL in the southeast.

With some connection to the thread about Toronto & TV rights:

Do the amateur clubs selected for the streamed CC games get consulted by the RFL/BBC and is there any financial payment (or is it all just wrapped up in the wider CC TV deal)?

Interesting choice. I can't see it being very competitive, Crossfields had a poor end to their season, finishing mid table in division 2 after starting really well. Rochdale are one of the top Premier division sides. On the plus side, it's a good setup at Rochdale, probably a relatively decent crowd, and the standard is pretty good.
