    That actually looks pretty cool - good to see the game making some effort to move into the region more

    Fabulously frantic.

    This is the way to spread the rugby league gospel.

    What are you doing here, I mean, you are not a fan of the game obviously, so what is it, just want to be a dickhead or something?

    Well done.

    HKRL Residents XIII to tour the Philippines
    http://hongkongrugbyleague.com

    [​IMG]

    There will be more on the line than just silverware on offer at this year’s Hong Kong Nines tournament, with the event to give players the opportunity to showcase their talent and potential secure a spot on the HKRL Residents XIII tour of the Philippines.

    The tour, which will take place in November, will see the HKRL Residents XIII visit Manilla in the Philippines to play against the Manilla Storm.

    The Manilla Storm are one of the domestic Rugby League teams in the Philippines and have been selected by the PNRL to be the Resident XIII’s opponents.

    The tour match will take place on Southern Plains Field in Alabang on November 7.

    The HKRL will announce further details around the tour, including how interested players can join the tour at a later date

    The HKRL Residents XIII is a representative team made up of open-age players who are current residents of Hong Kong and playing Rugby League. The team is not the international representative team of Hong Kong (Hong Kong Thunder) and is designed to allow a wider mix of players to have the opportunity to not only represent their region, but also help spread the Rugby League message throughout Asia.

    Hopefully the union clowns don't try to sabotage the HKRL like South Africa, UAE, France, Italy and Japan did.

    Hopefully the game goes to the Chinese mainland.

    I raised that question on the old Rleague forum several years ago.

    You can throw in Russia , Poland, Kenya and no doubt a lot more we don't know of!

    A few of the latest tricks the RU affiliated/biased administrators/agencies use are:
    1. RL is not an Olympic sport therefore it does not have access to government funding.
    2. Any fledgling RL competition in a given nation(especially in central Europe)will be suddenly taken control of by RU administrators which ultimately leads to, when the shit hits the fan, the dropping of the RL competition.
    3. Lack of access of rugby league to the private school system at large everywhere in the world. For that matter most public school systems as well outside of NSW & Qld and perhaps northern England.
