#3027995 RL SIX Nations?

Posted by Copa on 06 November 2014 - 11:34 AM

Freddie Tuilagi played for st Helens.
Va'aiga Tuigamala played for Wigan
John Schuster played for Newcastle knights

All born in Samoa..found after two minutes on Google...there might be others.


There has never even been a rugby league player from Samoa play in the nrl. This year St George Illawarra run some training camps in Samoa and have offered scholarships to 3 Samoan players, this is the first I have heard of this happening. Their entire success is from players born or raised in aus and nz.




#3026813 Not bad for a small international sport

Posted by Copa on 04 November 2014 - 05:42 AM

Regardless of international growth people will still be saying it is only played in 2 parts of England, two states of Australia and a small suburb of Auckland for decades to come.


International development does look to have a momentum all it's own now. No matter what some newspapers say about us, or the occasional short sighted decisions by some people in RL. International RL keeps on growing and putting down roots in new places.

England gifting Australia penalty after penalty through stupid play won the game for Australia.

#3018158 Getting more "asians" playing rugby league

Posted by Copa on 22 October 2014 - 06:38 PM

Seems to be an interesting approach to this in Auckland. Having an Asian only comp and teams because they were too scared to start playing against big Maori and islander guys. After a while some get confident and make the leap to regular competitions

#3016186 Stand up to Cancer

Very scary. My father died of lung cancer aged 39. As I approached that age I got quite scared. It's really made me appreciate life a lot more.

So you think basketball is the most widely watched sport after football.

Please produce some figures, if you can't please just say.

he said international scope, not number of people watching.
