The Lebanese Rugby League Federation has delivered Level 1 Coaching and Introduction to Match Officiating courses in Dubai, LRLF Development officer Nayef Abi Said and LRLF interim COO Faysal Jaber conducting proceedings.


Seven coaches qualified over the two-day sessions and they will work in the inaugural four-team domestic competition, the TBWA/RAAD Rugby League Cup, which begins next month.


Emirates National Rugby League President Sol Mokdad said: "The interest in the coaching course was great. It was imperative for our development and also takes us a step closer to creating our own confederation."


Nayef Abi Said added: "The enthusiasm and commitment of the participants was stimulating. When you think of the lack of resources and harsh environments they operate in, I can only marvel at their energy and the unfailing passion they have for our sport."

Giving the complex political situation they are working the Lebanese guys are just outstanding in what they are achieving! Can't wait to see them make a World Cup
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME


I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

Hopefully when the 2017 WC comes around they may be able to expand to sixteen teams and the teams doing the hard yards developing the game may get their rewards instead of coming up against heritage laden nations in the qualifiers. I realise that Lebanon are sort of stood with a foot in both the development and heritage camps. Haven't they managed to fail to qualify for the last two WCs without actually losing a game?
