The GB rugby league brand ended in 2007, get over it.


In Topic: RLEF has revoked Germany’s Affiliate Membership and Catalonia’s Observer status.

Good to hear about the reboot, hopefully things will turn out differently this time.

 

Looking at other threads, a reboot seems to be the right thing, for Germany at least (don't know anything about the Catalonia business). Re-admit them when they are ready.

Any activity in Catalonia would be covered by the Spanish and French associations.

Why were they kicked out ?

They were kicked out of the early stages of the World Cup Qualifiers in 2006 (for the 2008 World Cup), IIRC it was something to do with them forfeiting a match in Russia due to claims of problems with visas only for it to emerge that the team was actually away representing Georgia at rugby union. It was a great shame TBH because the team was relatively strong, they beat Serbia and Holland easily and the match against Holland attracted over 10,000 fans. What they did was also totally unnecessary because they had already qualified for the next stage where they were due to meet Wales and Scotland for a place in the RLWC.

 

They weren't in a 'huff' BTW as the OP states, they were officially thrown out of the RLIF and banned from international competition. You'd think they would easily be one of the strongest nations in Europe today if they hadn't screwed up.

Interesting to see Georgia showing face - have they got over their huff after being kicked out in the 90s?

They were kicked out in 2006 and this is a different organization.
