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?

Gary Hetherington of course. He was running the RFL at the time but Super League Clubs have ousted him, that’s why he’s so bitter. Probably planned to pay himself off :lol:

You think the 2018 side is better than the 2016 side ???
Mmmmmm
Ellis Fonua Watts Pritchard
Who’d we replace them with ?
Have another think again
This seasons side is leaderless without Ellis

we won the cups due to our superior forwards in the said years.We have now lost a number of those forwards,hence the season we are having,along with the injuries

It cost the RFL £328,840 to pay off the useless lump according to the BBC report about the overall loss. :twisted:
