CZECH RUGBY LEAGUE CHAMPIONS TRANSFORMED INTO RABBITOHS

From Phil Caplan, RLEF Media The current CZRLA Second Division Grand Final winners Chrudim Angels have been rebranded the Rabbitohs after entering into a strategic partnership with Australian powerhouse club South Sydney, owned by Russell Crowe.

What The?!

By Daniel Andruczyk Once again it seems that for all the good that Rugby League does, the steps forward it makes, it then seems to take several steps back. England tied up the European Tri-Nations this weekend against France with a big 44-6 win. Izzy Folau came back to the NRL this week, leaving the AFL after being less than successful in that code. However its the referee situation in the NRL that has me scratching...

In what could be a big step to killing off controversial tries in the National Rugby League in Australia it is being proposed that captains get the ability to challenge the call of a referee, like in tennis. See the article here. If anyone has listened to my radio show over the last couple years, you would remember that...

Lets Calm the Hysteria.

By Daniel Andruczyk OK so you must have been on Mars the last week to have missed Russell Crowe’s announcement, or dream really, to have an expanded Rugby League World Club Challenge Tournaments played in the USA. Namely, Las Vegas was named as the likely place. But before we all start bellowing hallelujah, the saviour is here, lets take some Valium and a step back and really analyse what this would mean for...

Why are we so Negative?

By Daniel Andruczyk So i read earlier today a fairly innocuous article involving the USA Rugby Union. They are on a tour at the moment in Portugal, Scotland and Georgia to play TEST’s. Now this seems fairly uneventful but to me its interesting that these matches are called test matches. Looking at the team: Mate Moeakiola (Bobigny 93) Phil Thiel (Life University) Shawn Pittman (London Welsh) Scott Lavalla...
