Oh...the choice of name will alienate the other 31 counties. The Dublin GAA side play in Blue......
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Happy to proven wrong, but there's not the audience for RL in Dublin, especially as they'll be a team made up of 80% failed Union players......

Why do RLfans always claim we have the greatest game on earth, but dismiss out of hand RL’s chance of success outside the m62 corridor. That’s something I’ve never been able to understand.

It takes under 1 hour to fly to Dublin, they could travel there and back on the same day if they wish.


Correct Kev, I regularly fly out on the 6:40 from Leeds Bradford, Manchester or Liverpool to Dublin and return at around tea time.

Most the time you’ll get it for £20 as well!

How about passport control, security checks and baggage reclaim?

Surely it can only be a player from Catalans. Probably the best RL side I have ever witnessed in this season's comp.

This will never work. Even with the mergers we can’t fit Dublin and Belgrade into superleague.

None of whom play their home games in Dublin (although I did play for Wicklow Minors in 1983)......

A Jackeen side will not represent the country and will therefore need to draw it's gates from Dublin alone......and to start with they want to play in Santry Stadum before moving to Tallaght. Starting in the North of Dublin before moving South....sounds like he might not be too bright this Kieron Brown.
As for Kieron Brown? How is Lancashire Irish Going? Their Facebook Page has 200 likes......sorry, but this is just someone thinking if Perez can do it, anyone can :CRAZY:
