University teams, if established can provide a steady source of players for external senior teams. Easier than working with schools, where the investment needs to be widespread and across years to produce results.

 

University is one area we haven't given a lot of thought to, yet.

 

Good luck to you all the best, I think touch rugby league in schools would be the way to introduce locals to the sport  

 

We have already had some great interest from schools here and there are a lot of Rugby League lovers who are teachers, myself included. Stay tuned.

 

Wonderful news. 

 

Having been at the founding of similar initiatives I hae a few bits of advice that you are welcome to ignore.

 

Be bold, you have nothing to lose.

 

The exceptions here are be careful, not vain with finances, and keep your word.

 

Thank you, wise advice. We have some quality people involved and we are taking a very methodical approach. Many have a lot of experience in Rugby League.

 

We think we have plenty of natural advantages in Hong Kong.

Rugby League’s continued push into Asia took a significant step forward this week with the formation of the Hong Kong Rugby League.

Joining the likes of Thailand, Japan and the Philippines, the Hong KongRugby League has been established to promote the growth and interest in all forms of the code in Hong Kong.

At the inaugural Annual General Meeting held on Saturday the 6th of December 2014 the first Hong Kong Rugby League board was established.

The inaugural Hong Kong Rugby League board consists of:

Chairman: James Hall
Secretary: Ray Meli
Treasurer: Ian Molyneux
Board Member: Brad Newman
Board Member: Jason Fairleigh
Board Member: Jack Muir
Board Member: Malcolm Pratt 
Board Member: Daniel Mascord

In early 2015 the HKRL board will work hard to establish Rugby League by organising a wide ranging fixture list which will include international matches with the Hong Kong Thunder as well as local representative, domestic, junior, school and touch football. 

"We are very excited as a group about giving Rugby League a presence here in Hong Kong. We have put together a board of talented and most importantly enthusiastic people who can push the sport forward in Hong Kong." said inaugural HKRL Chairman James Hall.

"Our hopes for the future are high with regards to getting both adults and juniors playing Rugby League in and for this exciting country. Looking further down the road we can see Hong Kong, with it's geographical positioning, being a venue of great interest to the global Rugby League community."

"If you have any interest in playing, supporting or volunteering then please get in touch as we have some exciting plans in place for 2015."

The Hong Kong Rugby League is honoured to be the custodians of the great game in Hong Kong and will use their passion and experience to take Rugby League to great heights in Hong Kong and internationally, especially with our Asian neighbours.

Further announcements about the Hong Kong Rugby League will be made in the coming weeks.

A derby would be a massive event for the NRL and New Zealand.

The committee also raised the prospect of expanding the premiership to an 18-team competition to get a fairer premiership draw over a shorter season with spare weekends to play State of Origin

 

 

 

This on the other hand is very good.
