Agree with just about all of that, I reckon that if League doesn't take off over there it doesn't have long left as a pro sport, except down under. Union is put over so much better on TV than league, League has no International game worth talking about anymore, As you say Union ref's are different class to League and that is reflected everywhere in the game.

I think half the problem is we don't have any true stars anymore, Where are the Neil Fox's, Meninga's Newlove's Gary Connely's Hardesty's and Millwards and countless others, As soon as anyone gets even close to their class, Union hoovers them up, It used to be the other way round with true legends like Lewis Jones and David Watkins coming our way regularly.

For me Danril called it right a couple of weeks ago when he said The game is crap, the ref's are crap and worse still we are crap," or words to that effect " so it's no wonder Union is grinding us down.

It's a possibility the game will do well in Canada and USA but i think it would be a bit different to what we are used too, They tend to like their sports with a lot of action and aggression , Grid iron and Ice Hockey style , I think they would probably change a lot of the rules. I'm not a big fan of either of those sports myself, Ice Hockey is too end to end for me and grid iron is a bit too repetitive , That said league now is mostly 5 head down plods and a kick.
Hey Ho i shall watch it as long as i can in the hope it will get back to something like it used to be before it disappears, but i won't be holding my breath


I actually don’t entitely agree with what you say. Had you said “superleague is crap” i’d Agree. I watch quite a bit of junior and amateur
Rugby and that is a lot more entertaining than SL has become.
the future's bright the future's claret and gold

Yes that's fair comment jools i was really talking about Super league, I fancy there will be a lot less gamesmanship at the lower levels.
