Trojan posted that this was one of s 5 favourite things aabout rugby leaue. Not a problem, and this thread ision no way disrespecting him. I just thought th this idea was worth discussing, and rather than clog up the origiinal thread I thought I'd start a new one since I'm very interested in rugby history.
IMHO rugby league was not born out of rebellion. Th northern clubs were desperate to ward off a professionalism they couldn't afford,as well as keep onside with the govening body. The last thing they wanted to do was rebel. The northern clubs' hand was forced.
Rugby League as a sport evolved trough its traditions of progess, necessity, adaption and innovation
