NO,IT'S NOT OCTOBER YET,BUT TEST MATCH RUGBY LEAGUE CAN BE PLAYED AT ANY TIME.ANY SPORT WORTH IT'S SALT SHOULD HAVE THE NATIONAL SIDE AS IT'S MOST IMPORTANT PART. A STRONG GRASS-ROOTS SYSTEM PROVIDES A STRONG FOUNDATION FOR ANY GAME:RUGBY LEAGUE,RUGBY UNION OR FOOTBALL. BUT THEY ALL SHOULD HAVE THE NATIONAL TEAM UP THERE AT THE VERY TOP OF THE PYRAMID TO ASPIRE TO.

WELL DONE THE WESTERN CAPE IN THEIR RECOGNITION OF RUGBY LEAGUE BEING A SEPARATE SPORT FROM RUGBY UNION.,  AND FULLY ENTITLED TO HAVE IT'S OWN GOVERNING BODY.    GAUTENG  HAVE ALSO GIVEN THEIR BLESSING TO THE GAME.  

 

 

SASCOC  WILL HAVE TO COME TO SEE REASON EVENTUALLY.  THEIR POSITION AT THE MOMENT IS LAUGHABLE AND THEY ARE JUST MAKING THEMSELVES LOOK  STUPID.

Dear President 
RE: South African Rugby League 
 
It has come to our attention through the media that the Gauteng Sports Confederation 
and the Western Cape Sports Council who in turn is a member of the Western Cape 
Sports Confederation, have allegedly indicated that they have accepted membership of 
an organisation known as the South African Rugby League, and as such have 
purportedly granted permission to this organisation to participate as members within the 
organisation. 
 
Please note that should this information be correct, same is totally contrary to 
SASCOC’s Memorandum and Articles and cannot in any form, be implemented. 
 
The membership are advised that in terms of the existing Articles of Association, Article 
6.1.7 specifically provides that SASCOC shall not recognise more than one national 
Sports Federation for each Sport governed by an International Federation. 
 
The member currently recognised by SASCOC is the South African Rugby Union 
(SARU).
 
As such, all applications relating to the sport are to be directed to the 
organisation’s National Sports Federation. 
Accordingly, members are to confirm that they have taken note of the provisions 
contained in SASCOC’s Articles of Association, will immediately rectify any purported 
violation. 
 
 
Crazy ... seems someone has not done their home work and found that RL has its own International Federation.

Dear President

RE: South African Rugby League

It has come to our attention through the media that the Gauteng Sports Confederation

and the Western Cape Sports Council who in turn is a member of the Western Cape

Sports Confederation, have allegedly indicated that they have accepted membership of

an organisation known as the South African Rugby League, and as such have

purportedly granted permission to this organisation to participate as members within the

organisation.

Please note that should this information be correct, same is totally contrary to

SASCOC’s Memorandum and Articles and cannot in any form, be implemented.

The membership are advised that in terms of the existing Articles of Association, Article

6.1.7 specifically provides that SASCOC shall not recognise more than one national

Sports Federation for each Sport governed by an International Federation.

The member currently recognised by SASCOC is the South African Rugby Union

(SARU).

As such, all applications relating to the sport are to be directed to the

organisation’s National Sports Federation.

Accordingly, members are to confirm that they have taken note of the provisions

contained in SASCOC’s Articles of Association, will immediately rectify any purported

violation.

The SARU have also informed the SASCOC that they are different sports so why this stance ?

 

Dear Sirs
South African Rugby League (SARL) SASCOC Registration
This is to confirm that the South African Rugby League (SARL) cannot become a 
member of the South African Rugby Union (SARU), or register as an affiliated member 
of SARU as they fall under a completely different sporting code.

I'm pretty sure they are fully aware of this. I'm also pretty sure that what Tubby is doing is illegal and extremely unprofessional, hopefully this is pursued in court and he is removed from his position within SASCOC.

Oh, come on! Since when does illegal discrimination against Rugby League ever lead to punishment, apology or even acknowledgement?

This is what RU governing bodies do around the world when RL makes an impression. The first port of call is always to get the local sports council to not recognise RL as an independant sport. This puts the blocks on in two ways by preventing RL from getting any funding and as a club or a player you wouldn't be able to get any insurance.

What they are saying is RL can not become an associate member of the SARU ,as directed to by the Olympic committee because they are a different sport.

The same happened in Holland the League was directed to become a associate member of the Dutch union.

 

The Olympic committees tell the union to take league under their wing ..the union tell them it is impossible..this then becomes a deadlock ....as stated previous no recognition = no funding and difficulty in getting insurance ...effectively killing of the game. 

 

WE all know this can not be done, so how come people who sit on MAJOR sporting bodies (ie Olympic committees) don't know the difference between the two codes.

If this is the case can we put League teams out in the Olympic 7's  as the IOC think league and union are one and the same  ;)  ;)

South African Rugby League has named the two squads that will play against New South Wales Country League, on a two-game tour later this month.  The touring side will first face an SA Combined Clubs side and then play an international fixture.

Been saying for years south Africa is a key area for international growth in rugby league. Although we have expanded small scale in Europe and pacific isles , S Africa is a nation that could and should be in the big four in league. With right work and funding the four nation could be between Australia , New Zealand , Great Britain and South Africa. As I am not a fan of splitting  GB up . There should have been given a place in world cup as apart from USA  all the other teams are based on super league and N R L . South Africa is another country that would also in time be capable of hosting world cup. The plan should be now to include South Africa in 2017 world cup come what may . The big three GB  NZ and Aus should all work with them in putting down roots giving them test matches touring ect to get them up to speed.

Really, there is little that international rugby league can do to promote rugby league in South Africa.  The growth has to come from South Africans. 

 

However, there is one thing they can do and that is include South Africa in the 2017 World Cup as hosts.  They have a very credible bid with the tournement with very impressive names backing them up.

They can help in so may ways not just by playing South Africa , coaching funding development exclude South African players from overseas registers . Twin clubs with NRL  and super league teams. I see South Africa students are at student world cup . This bunch of players are your future international team send Australian student to play them and tour S Africa then year after New Zealand year after that GB ect. Also invite your student team to tour Aus NZ and GB . There are so many retired quality league players in the three countries looking for challenges surely these nations could  send these players out to S Africa to assist in coaching.
