    Just enough going on and the SA racing will keep me busy. Aussie Rugby League finally suspended having been running behind closed doors and having played all eight round two fixtures over the weekend.

    By the looks of it Aussie RL is very similar to English RU. Both potentially have plenty of money, RL from the Billion Dollar 5 Year TV Deal and RU from the money procured from the International game, but club sides in both are struggling. The NRL has few assets and is almost solely reliant on the broadcast money, which in the event of no competition leaves them in a perilous position. Top English RU clubs have wage bills of around £1m a Month and again with no broadcast money, will very soon be skint.

    The team best off in either code in England is probably a League club. St Helens have got their own stadium and do not have any debt. The big difference with RL over here compared to the Aussie game and English RU is their costs are a lot lower. Hard to say who will come out of it better, but with the lower cost base, it could just be English Rugby league.

    Must admit the start of the Irish flat season passed me by. Assumed it was still all weather shite. Will have to watch the replays later.
