League banned from pitch in New Caledonia


From the SMH:

With the Rugby World Cup coming up, you've got to expect a bit of niggle between the codes. But in the tropical idyll of New Caledonia? "There is only one rugby union team in New Caledonia and they book the ground out so we can't play on it - even though they have no one to play against," said New Caledonia rugby league CEO Pierre Vandome. "We have had to move the grand final but this weekend, I cannot accept this. We are going to show up and we are going to play."

Shades of France and the shenanigans that that countries union federation are infamous for. But then, France has a controlling influence in the affairs of la Nouvelle Caledonie.
