  • Cup success sparks investment

    The 2000 rugby league World Cup was a disaster but last year’s tournament in Australia proved a success. So where does it go from here? DAVID LAWRENSON reports   There would have been a big sigh of relief from rugby league administrators after the recent rugby league World Cup in Australia. Not only did it turn in a profit of $A5 million but New Zealand managed to produce one of the biggest shocks in the history of the tournament by beating the hosts in the final. It was all very different fr...

  • Rugby on wheels

    SAM PAGE an analysis from Out of Play on the work she did with the British wheelchair rugby team in the paralympics   For those who are not yet familiar with the explosive world of Wheelchair Rugby, my advice would have to be, check it out. High speed and high impact, Wheelchair Rugby will make even the fiercest adrenaline junkies cringe (as they watch some of the ‘wheelchair rugby big hit’ videos on YouTube). At the same time, ‘rugby’ (as we all call it) will have the chess-playing tac...

  • Plan to suceed

    Long-term brand building is crucial for your marketing strategy according to garth dawson of marketing company korero   In an earlier article I recommended that your club, product or service had to have a clear and distinct brand strategy at the heart of all your marketing and promotional activities. In a business where your fixed costs dominate and variable costs are negligible, just like an airline, every empty seat is money lost from the bottom-line. But generating ticket sales is only one o...

ED SPOKES, from Out of Play, reports   It’s late in the game, your team is leading by 10 points and you’re heavily under the pump. The ball is moved quickly, the defence buckles under the pressure and the try is scored. With the game hanging in the balance the players need feedback. Where did they go wrong? Who was at fault and, possibly most importantly, how do they stop it happening again bef...

  • Tour Aid

      SARAH GRIFFITHS reports on a new charity using rugby to help youngsters from developing countries   Sport in general plays its part in charitable causes but non more so than rugby union. At the heart of the game are its values; the way the game is played on the pitch and the way it is portrayed off it.
