Location: Were Gateshull Est in 1865, or MADELATER ?
Teesside has a huge catchment area, and only an hours drive from Leeds, Cas, Wakey etc.

Any ideas why there’s never been any attempt to have a pro RL team in this area in the last 30 years?






Hull KR = A 100% Hull Team
Hull FC = 50% Hull, 50% Gateshead

Probably because it’d just get absorbed by one of the Hull clubs.






Id clean up RLFANS in 5 minutes.

Lived in Teesside for a while many years ago and its an isolated place (a little similar to Hull really) even places that are relatively near such as Newcastle and the North Yorkshire Moors are seen as far away lands by the locals. They stick to Football and that is it, im not aware of any other sport having a stronghold there.

Interested to see what they will do to promote the World Cup game at the Riverside, it won't be an England game and even Australia, New Zealand or Tonga will struggle to draw a crowd in a 34k stadium without a lot of time and money spent on promo. And while I enjoyed my time in the area it isnt a place people would choose for a weekend away.
