    Default Code Breakers

    For those of you who didn't see it 1st time around it's been shown again on Sunday 17th May at 10:30 p.m on BBC1 Wales. It's a must see for any RL fan IMO.

    Enjoy.

    And just to make it more special for you all, a very, very young Rogues is on it in almost the last video clip as Boston scores, I'm on the ringside with mam and dad.

    I don't think so, but can't really say for certain. It's a not miss programme though and shows the "hatred" for our game that existed at the time. I think Scott Gibbs and Kel Coslett are interviewed?
    It also showed their "reluctance" to pick black players!!

    The hatred against our code is embedded within many in Union. Sale is one organisation that seems to ooze the distain and would wipe Salford and RL from that area of the north

    It was interesting to hear Eamon on the podcast speak about this current disaster may affect club Union harder than many perceive. Why we ever allowed them to trademark the word Rugby evades my intelligence levels.

    Obviously no one from the RFL objected, but apart from the obstacles a couple of years ago with one Emirate, I don't think their trademarks are aimed at RL. They have myriads of trademarks worldwide in RU and I think their concern is with Pirating of merchandise, and illegal streaming of games. Trademarks are registered with WIPO whom i have worked with quite a bit, they are a pretty toothless organisation and it would be up the RU or their representative to take any action against RL. The fact that the RFU have never cited the RFL seems to point to the fact that their trademarks are not aimed at us. However I agree with you that we should not have sat back and let that happen, What I am not sure of is, is the word Rugby itself a trademark. RL has numerous trademarks containing the word Rugby throughout many countries.

    We need to stop getting our backs up about Union.
    They hold all the establishment links & will always be a much bigger sport.

    We need to concentrate on sorting our own sport out.
    1. Max 3 overseas players per club. Toronto best get looking.
    2. Ban anyone from representing England/GB/Wales/Scotland/Ireland if they go to the NRL.
    3. Get some focus & help for these championship and league 1 clubs. Help them develop players & compensate them if their talent gets poached.

    All good ideas. Especially 2 & 3.

    The Goons are code breakers going the other way, they have probably more ex players taking the Union Shilling than any other RL club.

    I agree with what you are saying, but I would give the likes of Toronto a couple of extra overseas, say for a period of 3 years to stop the yo yo effect.

    Perhaps the Town of Rugby hold the answers that is where Billy Webb Ellis got fed up being crap at football and took his ball home. The paving flags near Rugby School are adorned with the names of greats from both codes.
