We need a clear business plan going forward and quickly (should we not be able to attract a wealthy benefactor) or we will be left behind very soon. If Toulouse and Toronto are successful that will mean another two very well funded full time teams in the Championship, meaning staying in will become impossible for us on current trends

The bells ringing for Cumbria I'm afraid. Its time for action or we'll fade into history.

The problem isn't with the west Cumbria clubs it is with the people, the population of West Cumbria is approximately 163000, the gates of Town and Haven combined are less than 1% of that figure, that means more 99% of the population couldn't care less about the Rugby clubs, we need to focus on getting more people through the turnstiles to survive.

99% don't care about Haven or Town but a substantial number of that figure care about Rugby League. If it comes to it those two team may need left behind in order to save the game in West Cumbria.

100% correct. Plent of rugby league fans in this area but they don't want to watch a poor standard. The World Cup games proved the support is there

Some of the people on this forum need to give their heads a shake. Negative, parochial idiocy.

Just because they weren't sold at the same price of a SL ticket it doesn't mean they were given away for free.

They weren't full price though and it wasn't a full season

So who was it that informed him? And how did they no that zero full price tickets were sold?

I find it incredibly hard to believe that the organisers decided on a pricing structure, issued said pricing structure out and sold zero so decided to lower the the price

Well I know of a group of lads at work he paid full price for tickets and have also paid full price for tickets for the four nations game
