    I love everything about Canada at the moment. If only other nations had their vision, motivation!

    It's from Buzz so taking this with a grain of salt, but looks like Union wankery strikes again...

    POOR CANADIANS LEFT HIGH AND DRY

    NRL players might want to spare a thought for our Canadian rugby league cousins while bickering over millions in their next pay deal.

    The Canadian World Cup teams don’t receive a cent of funding from the Canadian government as they refuse to recognise rugby league and union as separate sports.

    The women’s team — the Ravens — are doing their own fundraising to get to Australia for the World Cup later this year.

    The dopey merkins are happy to recognise ice hockey and field hockey as different sports though I'm sure.

    This needs further investigation. And if true, further action.

    Far more similar than Rugby League and Rugby Union, if I understand the wikipedia comparison :p

    American and Canadian Football seem more like NRL v SL than RL v RU

    If you see early interviews about how Eric Perez came across league, this sort of thing will only spur him on.
