  • Koukash Declares Interest In Cumbria

    ... West Cumbria and it was amazing the number of kids walking around wearing Leeds or Wigan shirts and not wearing Manchester United or Liverpool shirts. "I'm not suggesting we bring teams together. What I'm suggesting is we create a club there and call it Cumbrian Lakers or whatever." Since Workington's relegation in 1996, no Cumbrian side has played in Super League, but the domestic structure in rugby league has branched out to include a professional side in Toronto, with another team in New Yor...
