We’re heading to the capital on the latest episode of Rugby League’s 5th most popular podcast* as London Skolars coach Jermaine Coleman and CEO Colin Browne join us as their prepartations for the League One season ramp up.
It’s off the field matters though we dominate our discussions as we talk about the history of the club and development of the game in London, how the club is hoping to have a squad dominated by Londoners in the future and how the sport can have a hand in doing that going forward, with plenty of potential athletes on the Skolars doorstep.
Not just the elite men either, we talk about growing the game amongst women, and the PDRL/Wheelchair aspects of the sport, maybe even a game of Walking Rugby as well.
After the domestic season is wrapped up, Jermaine has a big role in Jamaica’s invovlement in the men’s World Cup. We talk about that, and the numbers of BAME players coming through in the sport, compared to his start in Leeds.
Away from London, we’ve got a cross code signing at Headingley, developments in Canada, and some other bits and pieces to clear up, plus, we ask you what will be the highest squad number we see in Super League this season…
