    I know we’re a long way off but I dream of the day when the RLIF has as much sway as fifa and can mandate multiple international windows with real repercussions if clubs get too big for their boots.

    I did see an article which I can’t find now but from memory bids were supposed to have come from the obvious SL clubs and then Preston NE, Anfield, Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Coventry, Bristol, London Olympic stadium, Tottenham’s new stadium, old Trafford.
    It’s worth noting a devolved English body has invested a lot of money so all games will be in England this time around.

    Sorry to go off topic, but we are in the international thread.

    Are you actually from/in South America or just a supporter of the cause?

    I'm an Aussie with a South American wife and strong links to the Latin American community in Brisbane and I can speak Spanish and Portuguese. I'm loving what's going on with the game in Latin America all started by the efforts of the Latin Heat.

Robinson, who scored 685 points in 302 games for Wigan between 1992-2000, is of Scottish and Jamaican heritage. The 44-year-old represented Great Britain and England 19 times in rugby league, while earning 56 caps for Great Britain and England in rugby union. Alongside Rugby AM host Simmons, Robinson will oversee operations, commercial strategies and brand development for Jamaica over the next three years. The Reggae Warriors became the first Caribbean nation to qualify for a Rugby League World Cup last year as they won the Americas Championship. On being appointed joint operations director, Simmons said: “I’m immensely proud to accept the position and challenge to build on the achieve the JRLA made by qualifying for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup. “Having Jason Robinson on board gives us a broader appeal commercially and he brings so much experience across the board.”

    I’m disappointed that nothing has made it’s way to the Hull area yet.

    From listening to the organisers on the 5live podcast they’re expecting clubs to raise money also. Perhaps the people of Hull just haven’t put the work in?

    That’s probably true. There isn’t one club in Hull with their own ground in Hull IIRC. They are usually works facilities or council pitches.

    That seems crazy as far as I know most of the furness clubs have their own pitches, with a much smaller population.
