It was a busy day yesterday, catch up with everything that went on plus a new nudges as to what to expect in Rugby League Today.
What’s on the site
Michael Monaghan has made the move to Wakefield as assistant coach.
Widnes coach Denis Betts explained why they’ve only gone for two friendlies this season and how he has worries over just two players ahead of their season opener against Catalans.
Kallum Watkins is the latest man to take on the mantle of captain at Leeds, as the Rhinos look to continue their incredible dynasty.
What a huge shame for Scotland player of the year, Hull KR’s Danny Addy, to be ruled out for the season with a knee injury. Pesky friendlies.
It has been confirmed that the mouthwatering Championship opener between Leigh and Toronto will be shown live on Premier Sports. Get that one in your diary. Just a shame for those of us who will be at another game on that Sunday at 3pm…
Have you seen our new mailbox feature? Jayne from St Helens was the first to write in and she’s caused quite a stir by stating that all Super League matches should be shown live on TV.
What’s coming up
It’s Wednesday and that means an Off the Record gossip column will be hitting the site at 11.45am. We have the identity of a Super League bound player and also a bit of talk on the off-field changes.
We will also be starting our Super League individual club previews later today, starting with Warrington.
What’s on social media
Everybody loves an attendance debate, and our friends at RLonRY have dug out the league attendances from 1991/92.

A campaign encouraging players to tweet their #grassrootsrl club is gaining traction.
Over the next few days all of showme players will tweet which amateur club they played for as juniors placing the importance on how important #grassrootsrl is to the league community! Every professional player started at junior amateur clubs !! Any RL player can join in ???
