This year sees a an absence of the crowd favourites Japan, who have opted to fly to Hawaii this year to take on the USA in Honolulu on the 9th of June. This announcement was made on twitter by David Niu yesterday and though talking with people with in the JRL would have preferred it be held off a bit longer till they get everything sorted out.

    We need more of this especially around the World!

      There is a tone of them around, but there is no cohesion yet. In some ways we have to be careful not over saturate the market. A good 13 or 14 tournaments through the year should suffice.

    If anyone there could please provide some updates it would be appreciated. Particularly, updates on the Filipino squad and captain Luke Srama. Thanks

    I hope you get better Daniel and is it very cold where you are??

    • druzik says:


      No its not! That’s the thing that is annoying, we have had absolutely no winter.

      This time last year we had had blizzards and -26 C weather… and I did not get sick at all. This year its been fluctuating up and down from about 12 C to -2 C with no snow and so its hard to adapt to it. no wonder I got sick.

    We need the International 9’s to go to Capetown soon and go to Rugby League Rebels Cape Town Facebook and get the bully from Jack Ripperly!

  5. Chris Sanders says:

    If you got flu drink brandy with green ginger and ginger ale or whisky with warm milk and brown sugar.

    • druzik says:

      Not sure if its the flue or a cold … but yes I have a couple family remedies I have been using. Similar to what you say tea with lemon, honey and OP rum, or my uncles Klasztorniak, Honey, lemon and grain alcohol.

      Both seem to do the job

    Luke srama captained the Filipinos his father is polish and mother is filipina. the team lost their first game to Fiji parked 10-4 drew with Niue 16 all then beat Portugal in the bowl semi final 26-0 in the bowl final they beat burwood in golden point 22-18 the team is made entirely from Filipino heritage players based in Australia who have at least 1 parent born in the Philippines.

    • druzik says:

      Ahhh … see I have been in touch with him about Polish RL in the past … well that now counts him out for us I guess.

      But good on the Philippines, a real credit to them. it will be great to see them continue.

    We need a strong presence in Asia and this is a great start!
