AcrossTheTasman has Canada's previous matches from this year, so this may appear on there too.

Just when you've nearly given up on international rugby league up pops the amazing story that is Canadian RL. Surely even RL can't F-up this great momentum, fast track Canadian RL!

Send over coaches from aus, nz and uk to hold clinics all over Canada, increase funding to the Canadian RL, organize junior tours to Canada from the uk, France, nz and oz, pre-season super league or NRL games played in Canada etc. Canada needs to be pushed to the next level of hosting tests against the likes of France, Scotland, png etc in the 3-5 years and maybe going on tours to said countries.

Was the US team selected from both leagues or was the AMNRL remnant the main body of the team selection ?

In any event, both Canada, USA and Jamaica, the three bastions of out game in the western side of the Atlantic all need support and encouragement from the RLIF.

In fantasy land, I could see US v England pulling in 10,000 or more in Jacksonville and Canada V England getting 10,000 in Toronto with Canada v France getting a decent crowd in Montreal.

A fixture in Kingston sounds cool as well.

What you have outlined seems like a common sense approach.

I would like to see every fledgling country develop in conjunction with the RLIF a 5 year rolling plan that includes all of the above. For far too long we have seen green shoots appear then wither away due to the lack of A strategic plan.

So what is required to do this for all fledgling countries?

1. Some funding to put the following in place - this should be funded by all profits from WC's

2. Have a small squad of coaches - not full time - to visit all countries on an annual basis to deliver coaching clinics at various levels i.e. 3 british based coaches to cover euro counties, 3 aussie based coaches to cover asia, 1 coach for the Americas and 1 coach for Africa.

3. Contact all UK and Australian amatuer/ rep teams - from under 17's to open age- to see which teams are interested in being 'development ambassadors' to visit one country on an annual basis. Part of the cost to be covered by the RLIF from the WC profit. This should be a great recruitment tool for these teams.

4. Try to enciurage SL and NRL teams that want to go abroad for pre season to play a game against a national team or a local rep team i.e. Cas v Jamaica, Leeds v USA, Wigan v South Africa etc.
