As our misfortune continued with Whitehaven defeating us,at the time the promise of a takeover was happening,we learned 2 days later that the takeover was abandoned and the club is struggling to finish the season.


Earlier today,championship club Barrow,also went public with their story,

Now,shortly after defeating us at their home stadium,comes a press release which I first took to be a hoax,but it also seems their website ain't operating,suggest Keighley have financial woes.

STORY HERE


The sport is in a bit of a mess.I hope the meeting involving Championship and League 1 clubs gives us some hope for the future.

I suspect more clubs will be revealing money troubles between now and the start of the 2019 campaign.

I read the Keighley piece and have extracted this..

".. from 2021 that the Super League will be taking over Rugby League and the proposal is that there will be 20/24 clubs forming a Super League and a Super League 2 with those not involved being moved to the National Conference League as an amateur club."

If this is the case what on earth is the point of WWR battling to get anywhere? Or have I mis-read this.

I doubt very much inside the next few years (by 2021) we could get into the top 24 which is the equivalent of the Championship.

The Super League clubs are doing what the Premier League clubs have done in football. They all want more of the cake, which in RL terms isn't getting bigger. In football the cake is still growing...
