England Knights beat Jamacia 56-4, scoring 10 tries in an exciting performance by a side who's average age was 21. Though thought Jamaica where disappointing.

The England women's team beat the French women's team 40 -4. Being to strong and powerful for them.

The England men's team beat the French 30-10. After an excellent start which saw them 20-0 up after 18 minutes.

And Scotland and Jamaica fought out an exciting 30 - 30 draw. Including a brilliant Jamaica comeback from e0-10 down.

Regarding England I have heard some complaints over the performance. I am not sure what they expected to be honest, scratch team with ..8...9 likely players missing, one week and 3 training sessions to prepare for a one off game it was unlikely to be a classic.

Not sure where to start on this.

Ottawa Aces now confirm they won't be based in Canada and have chosen....Cornwall. I must say I am......puzzled at this.

Meanwhile Coventry Bears have re-branded as Midlands Hurricanes. Not relatively far from where I live (South Leicestershire), to be honest I am not that excited at this news.

There's been talk for years about Cornwall getting a team, based in Truro who are at some point building a new 10,000 stadium for there football club.
I'm actually not against this, never felt Ottawa was going to work. And think Cornwall has a better chance of success.

As for Coventry, personally feel that when you rebrand to an area rather than the city it takes something away from the club.


And also Catalan are in talks to take the Toulouse home derby game to ... Marseille and the velodrome stadium.
This I don't get, yes if it becomes established over a few years then fine taking it around the south of France. But for the first one, I feel sorry for the Catalan fans. And can think of better places (Montpellier just up the coast for example).

Like the news about Cornwall getting a Rugby League club, especially as it's going to be based (for now) in Penryn which is the town I grew up in.

Will it work? Don't see how. There's very little appetite for professional sport as a whole in Cornwall. The Cornish Pirates in union safely ensconced as a second-tier rugby union side is doing decently, and Truro in seventh-tier football is about as high as they can go with the crowd numbers they have, but that's really the limit for both sides. There's little rugby league heritage in Cornwall so I imagine crowd numbers will be tiny, plus player recruitment will naturally be tough because Cornwall isn't the most accessible of places (Truro football club struggled with this a lot when they flirted with the dizzy-heights of sixth-tier football).

It also seems strange that other locations such as Glasgow and Birmingham were considered, but Cornwall came out on top. I guess regional identity and establishing a team like Catalans is the goal, ahead of a more forgiving location.

But I'll be interested to see how it develops and hope it works, despite many misgivings.

Thanks for that Duty.

From what I've heard, them and the pirates are going to have a close working relationship. And they are looking to be based out of Truro eventually when/if the rebuilding of the stadium happens.

As for if it will work, that depends on what you want. West Wales have been rubbish on the pitch, but are doing a great job in the community and getting young people interested in the sport, which in it's own way a success. It's going to be hard for the first few years, but if they can survive that I see no reason that they can't be a sustainable club battling on for promotion and succeed in other ways than just on the pitch. Which in many ways better than the Toronto type experiment. And to be honest more what the sport itself needs. To spread it's wings nor just on location, but on expanding and profiling the sport in new areas.
Your point about Catalans, they already had a club (UTC, who still play in the French Elite 1), and that area of France is a rugby league area, they just put in a super club (for want of a better word), to get into SL.
As for location, Glasgow might work, but given the mast majority it's 2 major clubs have. I couldn't see it being a long term success, Birmingham in my opinion would never work. Cornwall has the best chance in a strange way of not only succeeding but putting in long term roots and establishing the game for years to come.

Hopefully it becomes a London Skolars, North Wales etc type success.

I'll leave the geography to you guys (despite being born on the South Coast). I hope I am wrong and it is a massive success....I am not sure I see it.

Meanwhile Midlands Hurricanes have announced that they move from Coventry to Solihull from 2022.

SL magic weekend will be July 9/10 at St James park Newcastle (completely missing the original point that this was supposed to be a showcase of the sport in different areas).
It will include a Hull Derby, St Helens v Wigan, and Leeds Castleford amongst the fixtures.

LEIGH

Have got a new head coach, and it's Adrian Lam.

This is surprising, I fully expected him to go back to Australia after he left Wigan.

Wow there is good news, really good news IMHO. Channel 4 will show 10 live SL games next season.

Channel Four SL Coverage

A win/win for me, more exposure on terrestrial television. For Sky and the clubs more watching will hopefully result in more interest, ticket and satellite dish sales.

I'm so glad that I get to see Leeds 8 out of the first 9rds (rd 8 being the odd one out), despite the fact they haven't been good for at least 4 years. I thought they might have had to share the games around, but it good sky doesn't see that (This might be a little bit sarcastic).

Also how come Rovers who had a great season playing good rugby are on 2 out of the first 3 weeks. Then only on in the derby, yet Hull who have been poor for at least 2/3 years are on sky 5 times including 4 weeks in a row.
