    As you may be aware Rugby League has been having a difficult time gaining accreditation as an individual sporting entity.
    The NRL is far and away the most powerful and well supported of all the leagues around the world so we should have our say (in great numbers preferably) to tell the powers that be to give Rugby League the respect it deserves.

    We would like to invite all fans to sign our petition to show the decision makers that we will not stand by whilst they degrade the game we love.

    This is an important time for the NRL as they have the strength of millions of fans to support this petition which can really send a clear message that we will not be pushed to one side on this issue.

    Finally 10000 achieved. Where does this petition go from here? Is it actioned by the initiator? The site itself. Not sure how this actually works.

    You can also tweet the head of the GAISF, Patrick Baumann @GAISF_President. Let him know we exist and want answers.

    You can also email them

    on their home page (at the bottom) is their email address. Just remember, hostile communications won't help League's cause.

    Hi Sorry , the website is having maintenance for 24 hours. Please try again later as we are getting some good numbers now and we are looking to generate at least an additional 10,000 from all the fans in the NRL. I think with say 20,000 signatures and support from the UK parliamentary group we will have a great platform to start from. From the fans in Oz and NZ if you know of politicians who are RL fans please get them involved as this is where we can make great strides.
    I have sent a link here to the UK parliamentary website who are calling for immediate recognition for RL.

    Please everyone sign this, its vital that we get this recognition so we can get government funding and recognition around the world.

    There's no way I can take organisations such as ARISF and GAISF seriously when they list activities such as cheer leading, debating, tent pegging and chess as sports.

    So what's next to put on their lists of "sports"/

    Crochet, model plane building and cake decorating?
