Rugby League World Cup 2013 Accelerator Program

By Daniel Andruczyk A while back I was reading over some news from last year on the Lebanese website and was reading about the MENA championships last October I noticed something interesting in the last line of the third paragraph. There was a mention of a World Cup Accelerator Program “We welcome Latham Tawhai, to the Cedars ranks and look forward to his influence on our boys and his assistance in pushing them...

European Results and Updates

By Daniel Andruczyk This week the first of the years international tournaments kicked off. Even though it may be a low key affair by most standards the Malta 9s didn’t escape the eyes and ears of RLIS. They were played over the weekend at the Victor Tadesco Stadium in Hamrun Malta.

England Jump on the Bandwagon

By Daniel Andruczyk Last week England jumped on the Pacific Nation stealing band wagon. Willie Manu made himself available for England and he was embraced with open arms.

The Rise of the Western Dragon

By Daniel Andruczyk Monday night, well it wasn’t the NRL, but just as good I thought. Channel 9 are showing the second ESL game at midnight. It was the Crusaders and Catalans at the Wrexham’s Sportsground. Two things were a stand out, the quality and gritty play of the Crusaders and the decent crowd that came out in that damn cold weather. For those antipodeans that aren’t aware of what’s been happening in the UK...
