There's those "values of rugby" someone mentioned earlier
Yeh, a retaliatory ban would be a terrible idea and functionally pointless....
All RL needs to do is entice players to come over and it is RU slamming the door on them. But this all depends on RL being active in enticing players.
Came across this.
Another Rugby Union stunt. Interesting that it states Turkish Rugby Union is not allowed to compete by European body.
Ah yes rugby union, the code with the proud tradition, that keeps on giving.Let me see, collaboration check, involvement in apartheid check,continual threats against any amateur who dares try his hand at rl.
For 100 years ru officials and in many cases their fans admonished players who played rl for money.
Remember well Simon Poidevin's book 'for love not money".
Then Rupert flashed his wallet ,as SL was coming around the Mountain, and they came running to grab a piece of the cabbage,faster than Usain Bolt on roller skates.All of a sudden getting paid to play was actually OK.
Correction all of a sudden to earn money openly was OK.
Commonsense has prevailed.
The Turkish Rugby League Assoc.and the Turkish Rugby Fed, have settled their differences after an emergency meeting between the two parties during the week.(Post on Rugby League Planet site BTW).
In brief :
"After a 5 hour meeting between the admins of both codes in Ankara Tuesday ,sanity prevailed and it was decided that each sport should continue as separate entities due to the differences between rules and the fact the two codes sit under different international federations.
The Rugby league Assoc will be held independently by the 13s,9s and Beach Rugby League Organisations independent of theTurkish Rugby Fed."
Thumbs up.It's amazing a country like Turkey has admitted people can have a choice in playing either or both the rugby codes.Yet in this country you can't play rl in GPS and associated schools.Go figure.
good result. well done union.
