Powergen changing codes...

  1. Over to the dreaded side that is Football.

    They are concentrating on sponsoring the F.A cup from next season...leaving the Powergen/Anglo cup wide open for fresh new advertisements.

    As read in the local Chron...

    Anyone have a link?
     
  2. Forum Ad Advertisement

    Understandable really they'll always get a bigger return for their money with football.
     
  4. Wonder who takes over, maybe Guinness?

    They have already secured English rugby for long period...why not the cup?

    Next season the English clubs should get rid of this competition and leave more time for the national squad to train. I think it would be in their interest if England reache the RWC final next year. I think they can still do it but time should be left to this team. Actually I've the feeling that Clive Woodward had more means at his disposal when tit came to prepare the RWC2003.

    I am for rugby competitions, especially knock out competitions.

    Although as a Sale fan, i was very disappointed to see our 'B' team entering the cup.

    We lost terribly and this really is not selling the full product. I am okay with a few GP games going to the 'B' teams, but not a premier cup competition.

    I can only see this as premier rugby, fuelling the fires of war against the RFU. The more games they try and get the International players to take part in, the more they annoy the RFU, the better position they are for negotiations.

    In the present state i feel only the welsh clubs benefit from the current format, so why not bring in the other celtic clubs.

    Although my main view for a cup competitions, is to bring in the lower leagues. Much like the old C and G trophy in cricket. This bringing money to lower clubs, or clubs trying to get back to the GP such as 'quins.

    Personally i feel this is the best option, as it gives the clubs that i have heard are desperate for money. While also allowing the 'B' teams to compete.
