Well... Let me explain! I live in the North Western part of NSW (New England). Over the past 5-10 years, I have seen a massive change in people about what sports they follow. More and more people in New England have been turned off by Rugby League and are now following and playing more European sports such as soccer (or football), Tennis and Water sports. But that's not all. Last year I played league for my school and the season went for ONE game against another school in my town. Poor organising, lack of commitment and not giving a crap. Whereas the soccer seasons go all year round (including Twilight soccer in the summer) in my town and every kid in town signs up for it. About 3/4 of my friends have switched from supporting the NRL to the soccer A-league. Is this happening in City areas as well? I would love to hear your thoughts. I am really concerned with the future of rugby league in rural communities. It could get popular again who knows?
