The Simulation – Rugby Leagues International Tournaments – Year 4.

By Daniel Andruczyk So far the first three years have had teams compete in regional championships like the European Cup.  The logical progression from these is that the winners then get to play in some higher cross regional tournaments, one being the RLIF Cup where its the natural progression from the current Four Nations, that is its been expanded to a six nations tournament. Today’s blog looks at the last year in...

This weeks blogs I have done a simulation to create scores and...
