Championship Rugby League - USA


Recommended Posts

It seems a new group or likely a rebrand of the California Rugby League is coming. 

You can find their website at www.championshiprugbyleague.com

They list Ten teams (all the CRL teams plus some new ones) 

Their logo includes a Bear so that also indicates a rebrand of the CRL.

I'm so excited to hear any news of activity, and in particular any signs of growth in the USA.

I'd like to see Wales playing their best 17 next year.

And then you have Pacific Coast Rugby League with the LA Mongrel and San Diego Barracudas.

The USA is a very interesting environment right now with a mix of USARL, CRL, Independants, NARL and a loose affiliation of the two clubs kicked out of the CRL with the PCRL.

One way or another I hope some form of cooperative governance is created. 

I do wonder if the CRL will come out on top in terms of 'elite' Rugby League. They have a massive leg up with the Islander community and Union clubs that may be interested in leaning toward League over Union. The CRL website insinuates that they see the MLR as a failure with Rugby League better positioned to appeal to the population. 

I do however hope that the PCRL continues and creates some form of second-tier Rugby League in the west.
