I've said before that I started playing last year at the age of 33.
Began coaching this year with the U8s. Got one trial game in and COVID put an end to it and my playing season.
I was on the first board of the Latin Heat after founding the El Salvador Rugby League in '13 or '14 and stayed on the next year.
I'm currently on the Australian steering committee of the ESRL.
I also founded the Nicaragua rugby league last year and they played their inaugural 4-team domestic comp in the same year. 3 different cities are involved. That's probably my proudest moment.
I've been involved with a few more nations also.
Currently trying to spread the game to the rest of Central America and looking into a potential Central American Super League. It may be beyond me but it's worth a look.
If anyone believes they are too far away from the heartlands or whatever, don't be disheartened. You can do anything these days without leaving your house.
Get in touch if you'd like. Your time and money goes a lot further in developing nations.
