How unlike you to focus only on the big players - the elite, commercialised sector if you will - and ignore the championship winning beers out there that deliver top quality results but are ignored by all but the faithful.

 

Goose Island for mine.

 

You are so right. A glass of Sam Adams summer ale would go down a treat right now. I will now revert to my usual underdog role.

 

The AMNRL and the USRL would be a good fit for Sam Adams beer and the Boston beer Company. A niche beer of good quality sponsoring a niche sport of good quality, like the beer company an upstart trying to ferment a market direction change in the land of the free and mega corporation domination.

 

The RL authorities in the states should approach them for some sponsorship for the Rugby World Cup. After all if Fox broadcast the cup games in the states they could get some super exposure for a small outlay, not to mention Australian, New Zealand and British and European market penetration..

Brooklyn lager is actually the devil. It possessed me one night, I don't know what happened, but I awoke with a sense of having been reclaimed from the hellfire of bealzibabs anal cavity, it was NOT a hospitable place ;)

Looks like all USRL players are now available for US Tomahawks selection, so the thaw in the US rugby league split seems to be getting even warmer, so that's good news.

Don't get too carried away just yet Jim. The only USARL player in the squad hasn't pulled a Boston 13s shirt on in anger this season. It will be a better measure for the eligibility of all players when the next two Colonial Cup squads are chosen in September as the two teams contesting the USARL Grand Final won't have been considered for tomorrow's match.

YouTube link isn't working for me but I caught the highlights of the 1st game in Toronto and can't help but smile at the size and passion of the crowd in Toronto. The game is coming on leaps and bounds in Canada and the commentary is entertaining "glory for Canada" and the guy on the tannoy "try for Canada baby!" LOL. Keep it comming. Love it!

Approximately 7,200.

 

RL in America needs Canada & some west coast USA clubs, Portland & Seattle & Vancouver Edmonton or Calgary would be a huge shot in the arm for both RL Nations, Area & International derbys would be  hugely attended as they are in the MLS.
