    No he was with the old association. A few years ago another competition formed in USA which eventually became the stonger competition.

    David Nui stuck solid with original competition but in the end all the players defected to the new Usarl. Leaving him with nothing.

    I believe Niu still tweets using AMNRL. His tweets rarely mention rugby league though from what I’ve seen.

    Unfortunately for Niu it was a classic case of "live long enough to become the villain". People were unhappy with the lack of transparency, and how he was running the league. Niu wasn't receiving their concerns positively and ultimately several of the teams defected.

    The new league (USARL) is a fairly democratic set up based in response to the AMNRL. The two leagues competed for a few seasons but the AMNRL went into gradual decline and now is defunct. The stronger teams moved to the USARL and Niu moved onto work in Arena Football and now is with Rugby 7s http://www.rugbytoday.com/7s/niu-tabbed-launch-super-7s-2018.
