Russia Seeks Sponsors and John Slade Joins the RRL Board

By Daniel Andruczyk

Recently a lot of news has started to feed into twitter and Facebook from the Russian Rugby League. They are now seeking corporate sponsors and to help fund the new 9s team that they intend to send to several tournaments around Europe as well as the Canadian tour later this year. Also Estonian Rugby/Rugby Leagues head, John Slade has also been voted onto the Russian Rugby Leagues Board as their International Development Officer. This should help promote Russia’s and Estonia’s interests within Europe and the RLEF and RLIF. Recent news of the Newcastle Knight interest in setting up an academy in Fiji has spurred on the Russians to try and do something similar.
