Just don't call it rugby in UAE then. It's not their sport.
Perfect time for "UAE Leagueball" and "UAE Touch Leagueball" to strike.
We can either b*tch and moan that they have more money than us, or be proactive and with what we've got.
No name change - we are Rugby League. Absolutely nothing to be ashamed of
STR held a pre season launch last Thursday were the 30 odd parents and children were kindly joined by Liam Hood and Alan Hunte from Salford RDs. Many thanks for their time, support and insight into professional rugby.
What started two years ago with c10 children is now looking more promising. Although largely dependent on children coming off season from local RU teams we now have a full u14 squad and enough for a development u13s team who aim to play a number of friendies over the season. We've even managed to get two sponsors for polo shirts and training kit.
Last year we started with five defeats - four where we were nilled - to bouncing six wins from the next seven. Whilst we won't win the league we aim to enjoy ourself this season!
Training 7-8pm BTH school Atrincham! Anyone interested very welcome !

I'm finding it difficult to deal with that.
When you think of the skills Burgess has, and the amount of game time and level of intensity he is used to displaying those skills in, it seems a little sad. Good luck to him.
Watching him is so disappointing, such a waste. Bit like buying a Rembrandt and hanging it in the loo
