    No Burroughs. Wonder if Canada will get Jacks, Dempsey and Ngawati.

    I can't see it. It would be good if they did (I doubt TW would really need them) but I just don't see all three being made available.

    It would be disappointing if an undefeated 3rd grade team in their first year started getting all tight arsed about letting players out for international duty

    It would be paradoxical for a club purporting to be growing the game in Canada to prevent their players playing for Canada and leaving them weakened, particularly against the US.

    I'm sure they're needed to beat the superstar Hemel Stags

    The weekend of the Jamaica game is CC final weekend so they don't have a game and the USA game is a double header with the final super 8s game, which I assume they won't need to win.

    The Stags won't qualify for the Super 8s ;)

    So this just happened but for the life of my I could not find any info about it previously.

    Do you have dates/a news source for the others?

    on a side note CONGRATS to Poland who just played their first full international. Despite a 56-4 loss, a fine achievement. Rugby League continues to grow.

    edit: RLEF is calling it their first international but they played Chile in Sydney earlier this year. While purists might point out that it was likely a Polish-Australian heritage team I'm not sure what criteria specifically has been used here to determine either way. Regardless, whether it was in January or July congrats to Poland.

    Edit: Found the others.

    Does the RLEF keep a f**king calendar or something searching through facebooks and websites in other languages for vague information is painful

    Let's be honest even 90% of the people in this forum won't bother watching these games.

    But.

    These games *are* used in official records and rankings, it shouldn't be difficult to find out that they exist and when and where they are played.

    I agree. I have to follow clubs or league's through Facebook to get results/footage.

    Hungary FB is devoid of anything useful.
    I found an article on another website that mentioned the month but not the dates.
    Finally on the Czech website found 3 dates for upcoming matches.

    If the RLIF did it's job, it should be a one stop shop for all fixtures, results and statistics..

    Hungary I believe had a few heritage players whereas Poland used none. Worth noting as it effects the scoreline in a big way!
