More splits within the USA


Recommended Posts

The USARL has pulled rank after sanctioning the Redtails game against Canada Ravens only a few weeks ago. 

Apparently now the Women's team will also be called the Hawks. 

It seems the Redtails will continue though...

This seems less of a further split and more of a gluing things back together?

I see where you're coming from but the USARL wasn't doing a women's programme, someone else stepped up and did it, the USARL (seemed to) sanction it and is now possibly doing their own.

It's very strange.

I suspect it's been made clear - or as clear as things ever are in rugby league - that USA Women can't enter World Cup qualifiers unless they're under the direct control of the sanctioning body recognised by IRL.

What if they are a minor shareholer in GB Oceana Limited? Is that a workaround?

The Americans seem to have got the hang of classic RL administration quicker than they have on the playing side.

Assume that the Redtails is another organisation, how many is that they've had who don't/didn't talk to each other?

AMNRL, USARL, NARL, California RL, Redtails ... all inside 20 years?

NARL was never a legit entity. Basically a couple of nutters with a twitter page and a few "team" logos to go with it.

I'm including it because it did get to the point of having players 'signed' up to it but I do completely take your point.

If only splitting and infighting was an Olympic sport. Hopefully they sort it out. And talk to each other. I don't think male and female national team mascots need to be the same. Kangaroos/Jillaroos.

No, but it would be nice if the Jillaroos wore the recognised Australian rugby league colours rather than rahrah ones.
