By Daniel Andruczyk

Round 1 of the 2011 AMNRL kicked off on the 4th of June with the Bucks County Sharks making their glorious return to Rugby League with a strong wind over New York Northern, 30-10. Both teams played well and seem to have a strong roster. The next week Northern beat the Aston Bulls. Another match played was the New York Knights against Connecticut but that’s another video. So enjoy the highlights.

    Saw the following post on the AMNRL site. The following is what was posted and not my words…..

    The new “expansion” team VIPERS lost 68 to 12 last night…they had 8 players from the Bulls playing for them.!!

    I wonder if any of the players on the Vipers “roster’ knew the game was on???

    What a joke

      I heard that they were Bulls players and players from other teams that didn’t get a run in the first game. I have heard other things to come out of the first two rounds, but I haven’t been able to confirm these, so wont post them as of yet.

      Its interesting that you have the score as 68-12, the “official” score seems to be 20-8.

      Its looking more and more that the vipers are more in name rather than an actual team.

    Not sure about the score, as the above comment was just copied and pasted from the AMNRL site.

    I hope the Vipers can secure enough of their own players on the roster as we all want to see the game contniue to grow. We just don’t want to see other teams having to prop them up with their own players though, that does not look good for the AMNRL and the image they are looking to portray this year.

      All developing nations will have some level of teams helping other teams out. That’s just the nature of the beast and I dont have an issue with that. If a teams runs a few players short and the other has players that won’t get a run otherwise then hell, don’t stop them from playing.

      The issues with the Vipers as I see it is that there are 0 players. If what I read and hear is true then basically Aston players are backing up and any other spots are filled in with other teams players. The damage is done when teams are made up and no real effort made to actually produce them.

      Even if two teams basically have the same team management, I have no issue with that. Much of the time there may be an area or team that has lots of players and the way to get them to play is to set up a second team. So be it. But they have to make sure that they work to that second team basically being its own entity say within a couple years of its existence… or something along those lines. That’s how the sport grows.

      There are always growing pains.
