    I believe that if rugby league was given a decent presence in the schools of NZ things would be different and RL would eventually be the preferred code.

    If the NZ Rugby Uninon didn't revoke the life bands for players that went to League after World War 2, then Rugby League would be what Rugby is today. I believe most of the top Rugby players converted to League before the War so they got life bands.

    Some schools are starting to come around. This year was the first time in many years we had a junior league competition in my region played before the rugby season. When the rugby season started, it was easy to pick the kids that had been playing league. We are expecting an increase of kids next year because rugby teams like the skills their players develop

    Very interesting. So rugby union will use rugby league to better its playing ranks. However if RL gets too big for its 'boots' the repression tricks come out. Some people on this website are not aware of this 'repression' or either refuse to acknowledge it. Great insight . Thanks.

    Just to the website administrators. I question the thread headline . Perhaps you could call it "Rugby league's reality issues."
    Think this would gain decent interest? And for the record it was Kiwileaguefan that brought up the very revealing information about the struggles of NZ rugby league and not myself.

    Truth hurts. Its clear the website operator has his clear agenda and this is a pretty rude way of treating a contributor. But that's the way this dude operates. I'm open minded enough to cop the rudeness but I don't think the "moderator" website person is such as open minded.

    Agree. Its easier to expose unfairness these days. So the repressive tactics that are not publicised are more likely to be known. The issue is that the neutrals have no idea that this repression is going on. In fact many on this forum aren't aware either.

    What's even more disappointing that this sort of thing(repression) is happening! I would suggest the RU people lift their act and become an inclusive and open minded organisation, It's quite clear bigotry pervades their thinking.

    Should not be up to a sport like RL to change its name at all! After all it is a breakaway version of rugby which happened to be more attractive to the eye and, from personal point of view, much more democratic and satisfying to play.(I have played both rugby codes and others)

    The bigotry is the issue not the name rugby league!

    Answer to the question: A superior rugby code!

    You mention Ireland. I was emailed a story that some Aussies that were playing union in Ireland were told by the Irish rugby union administrator " You can play any other sport except for rugby league." This was in response to a request from the two players to play rugby league in the off season.

    So a story of apathy within the game's administration as well as repression from union. It tells why rugby league isnt worldwide.

    Agree. Soccer has done that. But soccer doesnt and hasnt got a big brother code repressing it.

    To the forum operator. It's odd that other people are mentioning the repression theme and you don't seem to be transferring or 'hiding' their content. I believe you are acting as a "bully " . My comments are relevant and informative. I will be looking to officially complain if this 'bullying' continues. It's not right or fair.

    I'd suggest caution as u are aware that 'big brother ' rugby union will no doubt raise its ugly head some way and somehow. That code has a track record of putting roadblocks about when rugby league starts to grow too much . I have sent a direct email to the Toronto Wolfpack congratulating their efforts to date with a warning about rugby union a number of months ago.

    Lol. Im up against it here. The editor or site operator is making things tough for my efforts.
    Its school holidays so il cop it for now. Will find the source and quote details of what recently happened to Kenyan rugby league with respects to govt funding.

    I would suggest their lofty position in NZ is due to not allowing or minimising rugby league in the schools throughout NZ except some in the Auckland area. Apparently after the war RL was making some real progress and something happened (blackbanning of players etc) that stifled rugby league's progress. I'm sure their other tricks as seen in other countries where rugby league sprouts its wings and is stifled.

    Grow up man, rugby is just a bigger game in NZ and always has been - it's just the opposite of the east coast of Oz.

    On the plus side most NZ rugby fans follow the Warriors and the Kiwis, although at the moment most fans can see that there's something rotten at the top of both those organisations so interest is likely slipping.

    Anyway, the Kangaroos are going to walk this WC unless England can put up some resistance.

    Not a case of growing up mate. Theirs reasons for a relatively unattractive version of rugby in union being stronger than the improved and more entertaining version of rugby in league. You will no doubt be incensed by what ive stated however Im calling a spade a spade and the conservatism that seems evident in NZ has emanated from stringent controls in its scholastic system that has limited the growth of little brother 'rugby league' Thats my take on it. I respect that you have been immersed in a different 'culture' for want of a better word . But that's my read on things from a big picture perspective. Don't get me wrong I have played both codes of rugby and found rugby league to be much more democratic and inclusive on the field. I know you dissagree however thats my perspective.

    A question for you
    Te haka: DO YOU THINK RUGBY LEAGUE IS GIVEN A FAIR GO OF IT IN NEW ZEALAND? I'm referring to school access in particular throughout New Zealand.

    A tad inconsistent from the moderator or editor? So how does someone like Te Haka get away with calling me a liar when my observations may be perfectly true? Then again you are continually putting some of my valid points in this thread which has a title that is unfair and incorrect.
