An italian team confirmed in the new edition of the Balkan Super Liga; Lignano is a touristic town on the Adriatic sea, near Trieste, on the north-eastern corner of the nation.
If I'm not wrong five of the six serbian clubs are from Belgrade!

Why wouldn’t they have Wales playing in Wales or at least Bristol? Makes no sense.

That is a very good question, a lot of people are asking why Bristol or the South West was missed out. they were sold out the last time there was tests there. Personally if I was Rugby League I would make the effort in the South West they would get strong interest.

Look, let’s be honest, Northern England is the best chance for the tournament to succeed. Although I am beyond shocked Wigan is not on that list. From what I’ve read the target is 750,000 tickets sold, but it’s really hard for me to see that happening considering they’ve expanded the competition, meaning there won’t been any meaningful matches until the semi-finals.

Disagree there. Jamaica playing in London and Wales closer to Cardiff seem like two obvious improvements.

I still think it's weird they went with Bolton when Wigan is a short drive away. Stadiums are about the same size.

Next to zero, they stream games on Facebook and there is literally zero crowd.

Makes me wonder when they actually got rid of the "real" scrum. Looks like a proper one collapsing in this vid.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

I did a you tube search and it seems the scrum was still in use up until the early 80's in the proper format. it seems referees just never enforced RL after that date as afterwards you only see the scrum as we see it today barely touching.

Sounds like the Toronto Wolfpack home opener is sold out or close to it.

Rumour going around right now that Super League will be expanding to 14 teams next season and Toronto and Toulouse may be guaranteed a place next season.

Also, Super League may be separating from the RFL completely and new teams will only be able to enter the competition provided they bring commercial value to it.

I will be there. Will see how many locals will go to the game. 24 000 tickets sold, 30 000 expected for the game. Probably 5 000 englishmen, 18 000 frenchies and 1000 locals I think

Ottawa essentially confirmed for League One. Interesting info here:

Perez says he expects rugby league to spread to more Canadian cities, saying he has already been contacted by groups in Montreal and Vancouver.
