• help needed for rugby league

    Last week, me and Marie Rimmer MP wrote a joint letter to Rishi Sunak MP, the Chancellor, calling for swift and decisive action to help Rugby League clubs financially weather the coronavirus crisis.
    Rugby League clubs are the beating heart of communities in the North of England, including here in St Helens borough, and they all play a vital part in each of them beyond match-day. With fixtures firmly on hold and revenues dwindling, we’re deeply concerned that the game stands at risk.
    The need for urgent support is both real and overdue, and as St Helens MPs we’ll pull out all the stops to ensure the game of Rugby League can come out of this testing moment as strong as ever.
