 The I 95 is the road you are looking for.

It already links Boston 13s to Rhode Island Rebellion.

And Connecticut and Jacksonville Axmen and Brooklyn and New York.

Pretty much but it's  1,000 mile long road. :biggrin:

If the point being made is that the road is a long one then either 1,000 or 2,000 qualifies as long. I knew it was long when I posted. Out of interest I then googled Interstate 95 to get the true figure but I knew it went from Maine to Florida from the get go, so I knew it was a large distance which covered the point.

There's been rugby league in the USA for roughly 60 years.  It's basically a heartland.  But their crowds are lower than Hull City's.

 

Has there been any clarification from the clubs, USARL or the AMNRL as to what is actually happening now?

Nothing directly but it seems as if unification was all set to be announced and then, suddenly, it wasn't. So the USARL offered AMNRL teams the opportunity to join them, if they meet the criteria. That's as far as it seems to have gone.

Sorry, no offense meant.  It was just a remark about people being fussy on figures on a previous thread.  I travelled that road most days for about ten month, but only a little bit of it.

No problem, sorry I got so touchy. It's a reaction to the stuff that gets thrown at me here on a daily basis. The Rebellion are my team and are located about 2 blocks from I 95.

 Keighley, 

It is not entirely unsurprising that some of the negative comments hiding behind internet "nom de plume" :ph34r: have upset you but please, be aware that some of us are very supportive :angel:  of true league fans and RL (any where, any time, any place!). It isn't always obvious because there is a sadly negative input  :shout:, there are many reasons for this mostly to do with RL being a sport under siege :help:  and people thinking the internet is a suppository ( repository ) for being cross :wild:​  and being allowed to shout because no one knows who you are, and then there's the trolls  :banghead: and League Freak the oracle! :suicide: who are only happy if they ( and you ) are unhappy. Could be any workplace anywhere in the world! But the question is are you on the wrong side or the Correct side of the M62?

Well, thank you for your kind sentiments and you certainly put a lot of work into it.

 

The last question has stumped me. I was born on the correct side i.e. to the East of the Pennines practically on it in Bradford. I grew up on the correct side from a traditional RL perspective i.e. to the North of it in Keighley.

 

I now reside far to the West of it but still drive on the left hand side of the road.

 

Anything deeper than that in our question and you will have to explain it to my aged and feeble mind.
