Lovely stuff! Great crowd, but that doesn't surprise me with Canada anymore.

Good win for the Candians - sure they'll enjoy a win over the Americans. A lot of hard work appears to be going on over there, so it's good to see them getting their rewards on and off the pitch.

Based on the pics I have seen on twitter, that crowd figure seems very fair. It looked pretty full(ish) from what I saw.
Hope the highlights are on Premier?

Hopefully they will. I know they're showing highlights of the Police, Student and Womens WC's in a couple of weeks time.

Akarika Dawn was selected as the token USARL representative. The rest were AMNRL players.

I'm sure the Canadians like beating the Yanks as much as we (England) like beating the Aussies. What better way to enthuse a big crowd than a win against the old enemy. I can see the Colonial Cup heading north of the border in 2013.

Canada along with Jamaica have to be the recent success story in the devolpment of international rugby league, both domestically and internationally. Developing leagues in Ontario and British Columbia and a international calendar with a loyal and growing following.

Totally agree. It's refreshing reading the comments of fans on twitter etc who just enjoy the game for what it is.

There are so many positives for the development of rugby league in Canada. Canada is a rich industrial developed country with a large population and a sports mad public, a bit like Australia. It also has a large British expat population and French speaking population which surely would be a positive for any british and French teams touring.

The French played the previous Canadian RL incarnation in the eighties in Canada.

It shows that the game is making expansionary strides in it's international spread that such a fixture takes place and the ones in eastern Europe, Ukraine, Poland, Chech Republic, Serbia, Russia, Scandanavia and yes Jamaica are proof positive of the world wide appeal of our game.

 

Small beginnings in many places but beginnings nevertheless. The Canadian game, from a much later start date, has  rapidly eclipsed the USA and I can see them being the areas representative in the next World Cup if the Yanks don't heal their wounds and make better progress.

Let's just hope and pray there isn't a split in Canadian rugby league like in the US.

Do Canada, the US and Jamaica compete in a tri-nations competition? Would be great to also see rugby league developed in Latin American countries like Cuba, brazil, Argentina etc.

There's no Tri Series currently. The Canadians play the Jamaicans in a one off annual game as part of Toronto's Carribean weekend and they also play the Americans annually for the Colonial Cup which, I believe, has been expanded to a three game series for the first time this year. The Jamaicans played the USA for two consecutive years for the Atlantic Cup in 2009 and 2010. Other than the game at the 2013 WC qualifying tournament they haven't met since. The Jamaicans have always played these games away.

 He's been playing for the Tomahawks for a while and just moved back to Jacksonville. A potentially good sign though

He was playing for the Tomahawks but wasn't actually playing for a domestic club team. I think he was registered with a team that never ever played a game but it was to justify his selection.
