South Florida Speed

The article doesn’t say where they’re based, South Florida is an enormous area. 

"The Speed grew out of the South Florida Rugby Football Club and were present at an informal event this past September in Tampa."

Not the clearest statement but given (I've just checked) that the University of South Florida is in Tampa, I'd say an assumption can be made that this club will be too.

I'm sure i read somewhere that it's very close to Miami. 

Oh no!. That's sounds awful.

Who would want to go to Miami when we have Millom?.

Seriously its brilliant news.

Regional conference setups seem the best way to go for RL in the USA compared to a national competition.

I agree. It would be good to see another conference added at some point. Are there any other clubs in US that could potentially form another conference or are there any plans to add another?

I heard talk of a Texas and Californian conference in the past. Also a mid-western conference including the Monte Gaddis run Cleveland club?

Unsure if you’re on Twitter but the new groups (Cali especially) and the USARL don’t necessarily agree on all things... it won’t be an easy road as much as I’d like it to be.

Not on Twitter but this sadly doesn’t surprise me about the difficulties between the 2 groups.

They are going to be relatively close to Copperheads (Lee County) and Tampa Mayhem

It will be great if they can be sustainable in this area and Florida could be a hotbed of Rugby League as you have Lakeland Renegades too. Then you have Central Florida Warriors covering Orlando area and Jacksonville Axemen, further North.
