North America Rugby League


Recommended Posts

Looks like a slimmed down version is back in 2022, from May to September. Six teams; Atalanta, Cleveland, New York x 2, Toronto and Washington. 
 

From the outside it seems more sensible than the big nationwide comp that they had planned last year, hope it works out.

I'm looking forward to going down to the games.  I think you are right about the size of the thing...its like the Original Six in hockey.  I'll even fly with the wife down to Washington to follow the team...I love that city!

New York x1

6th team (believed to be Florida based) is being announced in the coming weeks.

Thanks, I misunderstood their press release. Hopefully it’s Jacksonville as they have pedigree.

Shame Ottawa didnt have any legs away from Perez. I liked the idea of 2 Canadian sides,

I imagine (if it’s a success) that they’ll expand. Makes sense to keep it all in the East initially at least, to minimise the (albeit still massive) distances. There is a flourishing RL scene around Vancouver for example.

Agree just a shame that Ottawa hadnt built that base as it would be in a good position for this league.

Wouldn't be surprised if it is Carolina Lightning/Thunder.

If all goes well they will join as an expansion team...people will be watching in Ottawa to see how it goes.

A proper, strong 6 team league would be great. As others have said the first iteration proved to be far too ambitious with seemingly no funding in place to back it.

The spirit was there though if you followed it....this is a far better plan....

I'm more interested in this development and the potential for add-on rapid growth, than any other ''development'' area/nation, in the NH.

A competitive USA international team, which qualifies regularly for our World Cup would be the biggest thing to happen in the game in 50 years.

Please keep the news coming in?

Why wouldn’t Jacksonville get involved in this?

There must be a story to that....methinks it would be more than interesting.

Isn't there some schism between NARL and USARL? (Soooo Rugby League)

It wouldn’t be proper Rugby League without a destructive schism.
