I have to be honest I don't know much about the Storm, as I rarely watch them, so I suppose it's a bit like you in regards to Hull.

Looks like they need to improve their scouts in the Melbourne area if there don't produce any players, surprised they haven't offered you the job.

Melbourne is Australian Rules country, I can't emphasise how massive that game is there but in terms of participation (at school and semi-pro & amateur level) and attendance it would be up with football in the UK, maybe even higher % representation. On the playing side in Melbourne, below the top team ,rugby (both codes) is restricted to NSW, QLD & Kiwi expats and the Pacific Islander community.

Interesting to note the RFL have posted a £2m loss for 2017. No international home games explains some of the loss, but 3 home tests doesn't explain the full gap.

They are claiming they have invested for the future, but as much as I love this sport it has felt on a downward spiral for a while now.


Well they did give the fat controller a £62,000 rise and a supposed £50,000 hand shake for leaving to chase a better job, be interesting who voted for both those?
