    York seem to be a surprise packet this year.

    What is the go? just a good start to the year or are the serious challengers for promotion?

    There's some reasonable Super League experience in the side - Ben Cockayne, Judah Mazive, Kriss Brining, Joe Batchelor from last week's lineup I can see.

    They'll struggle against the top sides on occasion but wouldn't surprise me if they made the playoffs.

    Settled team, good young coach. They won League 1 last year ahead of Bradford who on paper should've won it by a mile. They won't be contenders at the very top but not surprised to see them doing well. Well run club too that will be moving into a new stadium later this year, glad to see them doing well.

    If your up for it yes please. Sadly in my area which is quite rural in northern Ireland there isn't the opportunity to get it in the shops.

    Was actually thinking of a subscription. Would you recommend it ahead of RL world?

    League Express is made by the same people as RL World, it's a weekly newspaper with match reports, news and rumours whereas RLW is a monthly magazine with features and interviews etc. Completely different products.

    Just listening to the commentators in Catalans v Salford game. They have mentioned a boost for the code in France as a result of Catalans winning the Challenge Cup. So hopefully Frances domestic scene will thrive into the future and perhaps one day realise it's full.potential.After all the French Public were taking rugby league on in massive numbers by the late 1930s. And it took a NAZI appointed government to agree to the lobbying of French union officials to outlaw rugby league in 1941. Maybe natural sports justice may be on its way? Surprised if this happens and delighted if it occurs!

    Great to see. French RL is so frustrating. They could be a powerhouse or a tier 1 nation again.

    How good is Stan robin this season. Definitely should start at #7 for the French National side alongside Fages.

    I think the only way RL grows in France is if they have around 3-4 teams in the UK league structure which could hopefully see the elite1 and elite2 catch a bump from this. Especially from expansion areas like Marseille, Montpelier and Lyon etc.
