It was publicly made known that Leigh where financially better off. Basically they had more money in the pot to cover the 850k shortfall.


I missed that one, but I haven't missed the way Mr. Beaumont has been a keen RL fan happy to put massive sums of money into the game.

The only reason RL continues to exist in the northern hemisphere is because people will do that across the north of England. Beaumont is on a par with Davey, Lenegan, Caddick, McManus, Pearson, Moran, Carter, Hudgell etc etc.

The idea that he's a clown and we should have a pro RL club in Timbuktoo as that's expansion is a fascinating one :roll: :roll: :roll:

Are you sure about this ?

IIRC there were 6 clubs applying for 1 SL spot.Unless there is public record as to why Leigh got the gig, in favour of Fev Toulouse, Bradford etc, and more importantly the reasoning behind this, I would suggest that you are guessing. What happened to Newcastle, York and London, who were to be included in an "all new".
You seemed really certain of this for all of the last 12 months ?



Yes there were six clubs wanting the last SL slot. that Leigh got the gig is a tiny tiny bit of a clue that the Superleague clubs wanted another northern rich owner to join their northern rich owners club.

They are an insular bunch, they hate Bernard Gauch and his phoney French team.

Time we got rid of these rich Northerners and got back to intercontinental fantasy Rugby League.........

Just a shame the wealthy northern owners are dependent on money from a broadcast deal.
The whole lot together won't have put as much in as Gausch and Argyle.
The wealthy folk just put in directors loans.
That is LOANS!
Joe the unemployed chap will probably put in a higher percentage of his disposable cash,over the years.

Instead of your usual anti - overseas tripe,how about some real facts about any putative restructure?
No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

This is a bit of a strange post, Donny.
Of course the game needs as many wealthy people involved as possible and DB has certainly put plenty of brass into Leigh over the years, with the occasional dummy spit.
Was it the SL clubs that voted for Leigh ?
What happened to the independent panel, who were charged with selecting the "best" applicant ?

Once again you are putting your very own spin onto things and you chose not to answer about London, York and Newcastle all of whom, you had previously been so certain of being in the all new, all British SL.

The one certainty is that if/when some clubs are dropped/kicked out of SL, whether they be from Hull or Perpignan, it will be yet another mistake from those in charge and assuming there is a cut from 12, to 10 clubs, it will be another nail into the RL coffin.

The elephant in the room is just why RL is so unappealing to the masses.
The media, and the general public are starting to ignore the self proclaimed "greatest game" and the sport is walking into oblivion and back to an amateur status.

Because clubs like yours have provided little in the way of competition or excitement since the 1960s.

Yeh of course I'm certain if the all new 2x10 Superleague comes in in 2022 it will involve Newcastle York and London. what's your point??

Of course the SL clubs voted for Leigh. Why would they not they need money not dreams.

Of course RL doesn't appeal in places where it's not actually played and Rugby Union is king.

Anything else?

My point relates to your insistence for the last 12 months that York, Newcastle and London would be in SL, not a re named Championship/ 2nd tier. You do remember that dont you ?

If RL has no appeal in areas where RU is "king" and has no hope of ever doing so, we may as well move the bulldozers in now and allow Saints, Wigan, Leeds & Wire to go to the "dark side".

Oh yes, Trinity should be blamed for all of the sports many failings

The direction of travel for the sport and the myriad of failed restructures are all down to little old Wakefield.

At least you've given me a laugh this morning :CRAZY:
