That was a real anti climax and a disappointment. Hope they can get something off the ground. Doesn't look like 13s are involved. 

Perhaps we will see some clubs return to the USARL at the AGM.

Hopefully this is the case and USARL get some good new leadership in charge and can pick up the pieces when this inevitably withers on the vine. Hopefully Boston, Brooklyn, White Plains/Freedom and a couple of others return and start building again.

But isn't union a game for all shapes and sizes?

that is very true.. however, i'm not entirely sure the body shape you would need to be to fit into some of this stuff... 

and I've seen, been and experienced many body shapes! :kolobok_ph34r:

be careful with VX3.. my sons Rugby Union club use them, they've not been good.. sizing has been weird, we had some samples and ordered off the back of those and the shorts were all over the place came much bigger but also (especially the kids sizing) really really wide legs, made them look like skirts. 

Shirts werent as bad but socks were big too.. the adults team bought loads of the 7-11 socks as spares off parents who were mightily annoyed (understatement).. 

hoodies etc which are meant to be off the shelf are often on long lead times.. (apparently the club was under the impression they were UK made and therefore on a better turnaround... they are not.. they were also expecting larger stock holdings the two put together are causing real issues and its a bad look for the club and lots of lost revenue)

they really struggled to set the website properly for kits which were a pre order.. they kept going "out of stock" in sizes even though it was a pre order they just couldnt get the site to be set up with limitless stock (or frankly put a limit on of 9999999 if need be surely!! even our free work retail site can do this ffs!).

I have ordered things off the site for my son and myself (as a coach) twice and both times there has been an issue and I have had to chase on both occasions, they're not great at getting back to you either.

I know people have an issue with Oxen but I would not recommend this lot to anyone!

On the flip, VX3 supply Wales RL and I’ve bought a good handful of things from them… aside from a slightly tight medium vest (definitely go up a size) everything has been good quality and good service.

Sorry to hear you’ve had bad experiences

It was a joke. Someone pretending to be 'Team Six' saying they've pulled out of the NARL

It was a parody Twitter account (see page 3 of the thread) now deleted. Shame as they had a great shirt design. It was tagged Guyra Super Spuds so they may have set it up.

Or, maybe team 6 have had a rethink and decided to rejoin the NARL.....

Anyway, here is the text:

It is with regret that we announce we will no longer be participating in the @NARugbyLeague.

On the plus side, at nearly 24 hours, we remain one of the longest serving clubs in NARL history.#nosix #sixandout

Longest serving, played the same number of games as the others and best merch. I'd call that a success 😊

Does anyone know who owns Toronto now? Seems to be a secret 

I do worry that this whole thing is a set up just to sell some merch 

I don’t think so, Atlanta, Toronto and Cleveland are certainly real clubs. Not sure about Washington or NY.

Have Cleveland ever played a match?

I think a couple of friendlies.

I was going to ask the same about Toronto. Have they played a match, or even assembled a squad that trains, since they left Super League?

I can find one Cleveland match vs Atlanta. I think Toronto have played once too. The question for me is why are we building a pro tier without the grassroots foundations? Makes no sense to me
