When I first heard of the RLWC being held in North America I thought it was an April Fool's joke. It's still an April Fool's joke. Reasons this is likely to fail; A.)There's roughly around 200 registered amateur players in North America. B.)There is barely any professional presence as Toronto are an English team that plays a few matches out of Toronto. C.)Do Moore Sports International even maintain regular contact with the governing bodies in the USARL and CRL? D.)0% grassroots development. E.)There have been TOO many false dawns for RL in the US. F -for fail.)How much have the RLIF done? Reasons this is likely to succeed; A.)RL is very similar to American football. C.)We have a product that Americans will enjoy watching and should pick up quickly. For this to work Moore Sports will have to invest in their own competition in North America likely with Toronto Wolfpack involvement, with a decent mix of East and West Coast teams, making sure there is a few top level pros to balance out the competition. Their is 7 years to go and there's a lot of catching up to do, this is make or break for RL in the US and for International RL. This must be done right.
