    Thought provoking article by Liew and follows on from Hudgells comments yesterday. It's going to need Government, Broadcasters, Clubs and the two League bodies, to try to come together and agree a way through this, but don't hold your breath.

    Things will change no doubt about that, but it's hard to see any positive outcomes for the wider RL clubs at this moment in time.

    I'm not being funny, the government have bigger problems and they can't sort those out so I doubt there's much hope for RL receiving much help.

    That's why I mentioned 'don't hold your breath'. It was in this article by Bower yesterday, regarding Hudgell's government help being required.

    Without going into detail, there are organisations out there far more important in terms of what they do for this country nationally and internationally that are struggling to get the financial support they need. As much as I love the game and want it to survive this, I would be seriously annoyed if we jumped the queue for money given how appallingly the sport has been run for the last 10 years at least.
