    When I first heard of the RLWC being held in North America I thought it was an April Fool's joke. It's still an April Fool's joke. Reasons this is likely to fail;
    A.)There's roughly around 200 registered amateur players in North America.
    B.)There is barely any professional presence as Toronto are an English team that plays a few matches out of Toronto.
    C.)Do Moore Sports International even maintain regular contact with the governing bodies in the USARL and CRL?
    D.)0% grassroots development.
    E.)There have been TOO many false dawns for RL in the US.
    F -for fail.)How much have the RLIF done?

    Reasons this is likely to succeed;
    A.)RL is very similar to American football.
    C.)We have a product that Americans will enjoy watching and should pick up quickly.

    For this to work Moore Sports will have to invest in their own competition in North America likely with Toronto Wolfpack involvement, with a decent mix of East and West Coast teams, making sure there is a few top level pros to balance out the competition. Their is 7 years to go and there's a lot of catching up to do, this is make or break for RL in the US and for International RL. This must be done right.

    You forgot B). Adept rugby league administrators will combine and attract business and media to make this event succeed. It ( RL)deserves a change of luck!

    I wonder if President Trump will place a tariff on the World Cup.

    Saw a guy who seemed very enthusiastic for rugby-league in North America on video /u tube last night. Hopefully this type of grass roots enthusiasm can be supported in some way by established Aussie rugby league clubs or administration ? They are trying to source funds for possible tours to Australia and England via a website donation set up. This guy has a website called: rlamerica.com. Looks genuine but needs backing!
