Maybe a branch of Top Shop or Dorothy Perkins at HQ may be worth considering?

The success of the 2004 to 2014 Rhinos with adequate development would (IMHO) have translated the massive interest in West Yorkshire amateur Rugby Union into interest in a pro club. But as it happened Caddick admitted that owning a Union club was a hobby.

I'm sad because there are now no realistic pathways for the many hundreds of lads who play amateur Union to make a living from the game in West Yorkshire.

You could almost say the same about any club in any sport. Look at the crowds Bradford used to get after their successful spell regularly winning trophies. The problem is only a very small minority of clubs can be regularly successful on the field, so basing your business on that happening will fail for most.

Imagine where you work going bust, you being made redundant yet still having a mortgage to pay and kids to clothe and feed.

As much as League fans scoff at Union - lets not forget that at the end of the days its sport and there are staff and players who have very uncertain futures.

Was very interesting to find out that Leeds Rhinos actually loaned Yorkshire Carnegie 403k preciously. Under the CVA we will only get £60k back (15p to the £)

So we hired someone under GREAT fanfare who couldn't do the job we hired him to do?

"Leeds Carnegie’s executive chairman tasked with, among other things, building relationships with businesses, sponsors and clubs across the county"
Who, also had "been the driving force behind the controversial name change to Yorkshire Carnegie" that went down like a cup of cold sick.

He's partly right that the Yawnion should have had there own marketing dept, I mean we only have one of the best marketing depts / corporate contact lists for the RL so I mean that 20% of staff time would be used to go after these delicate, unique kick and clappers non?

He's failed, he's failed big and like anyone in that position he's shifting blame onto what he see's as the "inferior code" which will be lapped up by the sycophants in the media.

I'm quite liberal,but I have to say I couldn't care less about Rugby Union . People who follow both good luck to you ,but me ? I didnt watch one minute of The " Ragby " world cup . The fact that they had the arrogance to call it Rugby wc makes me despise it all the more
