World Rugby League is the name of the rival governing body that has headquarters in Pakistan and includes Greece, Italy and Argentina.

Sounds like a serious world governing body with those giants of Rugby League in it.

Its a viral infection injected by the great snake RaRa. To infect our fledgling governing bodies all around the world.

It's a group which claims to be in charge of World RL, thus providing a reason for various sports governing bodies, governments etc. not to recognise RL as a sport. Coincidentally, quite a few of the people involved have links to RU.

Do a forum search for Ikram Butt and you’ll find everything you need to know. Highlights from their Italy v Pakistan match played in Pakistan in front of a few 1000 fans is also on YouTube..

This TV news piece shows Italian and Pakistani government officials at the post match presentation..

I'd happily give a tenner each month if something was set up. I'm sure others would sign up also. Maybe each quarter we decide who should get the cash. Jamaica this time. Maybe Nicaragua next. Then Nigeria or whoever. 

 

I wonder if a Patreon type subscription would be the way to go?

I'd go with Friends of Jamaican Rugby League (or "Friends of JRL" if we need it shorter for space). 

Although maybe if we are going to be looking at other nations too there may be an argument for tweaking it to "Friends of Expansion"?? looking at the future we could be frontrunners in the marketing of elasticated waste jeans and things too... "for the expanging gentleman"

I like the idea of Friends of Jamaican RL but also would appreciate the Forum getting a mention somewhere too - would help the club know where the Friends are from haha!

RLJ talk to about 50,000 people across social media a week, which is why they are keen to hopefully send some rugby league fans this way.

The Bob Ma"RL"eys

That has got to be the most dad of all dad jokes I’ve ever read on this forum... 😀
