However, SARU have come out in support of SARL saying that they are a completely different sport

What they are saying is RL can not become an associate member of the SARU ,as directed to by the Olympic committee because they are a different sport.

The same happened in Holland the League was directed to become a associate member of the Dutch union.

 

The Olympic committees tell the union to take league under their wing ..the union tell them it is impossible..this then becomes a deadlock ....as stated previous no recognition = no funding and difficulty in getting insurance ...effectively killing of the game. 

 

WE all know this can not be done, so how come people who sit on MAJOR sporting bodies (ie Olympic committees) don't know the difference between the two codes.

If this is the case can we put League teams out in the Olympic 7's  as the IOC think league and union are one and the same  ;)  ;)

Not the IOC, Italian sport is under CONI (Italian Olympic committee) and aware rugby league is a different sport but a federation isn't recognised at present

SARL names squads to face New South Wales Country League

 

South African Rugby League has named the two squads that will play against New South Wales Country League, on a two-game tour later this month.  The touring side will first face an SA Combined Clubs side and then play an international fixture.

Gerry Gendall, South Africa National Coach, was very impressed with the level of play at the trails, saying: “A few months ago there were obvious gaps between players, but the game and fitness levels have lifted considerably.”

Been saying for years south Africa is a key area for international growth in rugby league. Although we have expanded small scale in Europe and pacific isles , S Africa is a nation that could and should be in the big four in league. With right work and funding the four nation could be between Australia , New Zealand , Great Britain and South Africa. As I am not a fan of splitting  GB up . There should have been given a place in world cup as apart from USA  all the other teams are based on super league and N R L . South Africa is another country that would also in time be capable of hosting world cup. The plan should be now to include South Africa in 2017 world cup come what may . The big three GB  NZ and Aus should all work with them in putting down roots giving them test matches touring ect to get them up to speed.

Really, there is little that international rugby league can do to promote rugby league in South Africa.  The growth has to come from South Africans. 

 

However, there is one thing they can do and that is include South Africa in the 2017 World Cup as hosts.  They have a very credible bid with the tournement with very impressive names backing them up.

They can help in so may ways not just by playing South Africa , coaching funding development exclude South African players from overseas registers . Twin clubs with NRL  and super league teams. I see South Africa students are at student world cup . This bunch of players are your future international team send Australian student to play them and tour S Africa then year after New Zealand year after that GB ect. Also invite your student team to tour Aus NZ and GB . There are so many retired quality league players in the three countries looking for challenges surely these nations could  send these players out to S Africa to assist in coaching.
