It could be possible that they know what they are doing.

So, technically why couldn't they do the same for RL?

 

Technically they could back in 1998 which was when team sports were admitted following a Commonweallth Prime Ministers meeting where the games came up and the Asian ones in particular requested it (the next Games were to be in Malaysia). Cricket was an obvious one and was provisionally included. None of the test playing nations showed any interest and it lapsed. Since then the idea of core sports has become constitutionally enshrined and changing the constitution basically needs to be approved by all CG national Committees. Do the maths.

At one point the Olympcis had softball and baseball. Two sports equally as close as RU and RL 

 

 

Partner sports at the Olympics, baseball for men and softball for women. For a Commonwealth equivalent think rugby (sic)  and netball.
