For the second year running Wigan have posted a very large loss. They lost over £600k in 2016 despite winning the grand final. It doesn't bode well for the game if the 2nd biggest club can't even run at a profit. We need to make our game more international, to draw in major sponsors and stop looking to small mining towns if Super League is to survive as a professional league.

It's typical of three quarters of all SL clubs unfortunately with only Cas Tigers, Hull FC and Widnes Vikings posted a bit of a profit for last year. Whilst 600K is massive it's nowhere near as big as either Hudd's or Salford's losses. How long can it go on for before the straw breaks the camels back ?

That article is misleading - Rhino's losses were 260K for 2016.

So Tigerade you've chosen a selective season to highlight what in your words are Rhinos Losses of £260K for the year whilst only Cas, Hull FC and Widnes have made a profit in order to say that you are one of the clubs that make a profit :lol:

Don't suppose that you can give us anymore such financial results in previous decades,centuries that further back up your clubs glowing glowing financial results? :lol:
We had some flooding issues in 2016 you know :wink:
Otherwise our snack bar makes more money than the Cas club does :lol:

Didn't a Daryll Clark signing on fee bail Cas out only a few years back when they were close to going under?

It's the £400k ground rental that makes my eyes water, and I wouldn't imagine that they get anything from the bars etc.
Freedom for supporters of the government, only for members of one party - however numerous they may be - is no freedom at all. freedom is always and exclusively for one who thinks differently.

Manchester City won the league and posted a loss of 300 million nobody is saying it doesn't bode well for football there are hardly any sports teams that run at a profit
