Brexit will be the best thing to affect Britain since VE Day and won't make any different to RL in Europe.
NZ Warriors play in an Australian comp, being a separate nation makes no difference.

Yeah, course it will :CRAZY:
As for difficulties in having French sides competing in SL and The Championship, there really shouldn't be any issues.
They seem to manage just fine with The Europa League and Champions League in football.

There's the potential that clubs, excepting Catalans, could count EU/Kolpak passport holders as quota players rather than having to mess around with the non-fed rule.

It's difficult to say until we have a clearer idea of what Brexit will look like - what 'freedoms' will be gained and how they'll be used by the government of the day. It's still 8 months away, so there's LOADS of time to come up with a plan, and for a chunk of Brexiters to express their fury that their vision of a brave new Britain was pretty much the exact opposite of that imagined by another chunk.

The new season kicks off before then, with no clear idea yet of the new league structure. We should maybe get David Davis in to negotiate a resolution - he's at a loose end nowadays.

Every SL and championship team should be getting these visas in order now rather than last minute.

That way there can be no problems come match weekend.

£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

I'm sure a re-establishment of stronger economic ties with the British Commonwealth nations like CANADA, Australia, NZ and emerging India etc plus the US, who are on the right track by the way, should ease some of the financial burden that was taken from the gapingly huge Brussel's Sprout.

Getting into sin-bin territory now, so I may split this to there later.

However, how do you envision our agreements with Australia, Canada and New Zealand might differ from and be stronger than our current agreements with them through the EU? Which we’ll obviously lose on Brexiting.

http://ec.europa.eu/trade/policy/countr ... greements/

Sadly, imo, any deal with the US will likely see us being ‘picked off’ by a much bigger and more powerful negotiating partner, notorious for aggressively (if not always competently) pursuing their own self interest.

Edit, 10.40 am. i’ve overreached a little in a couple of places there. That’ll teach me to try to look clever on the basis of 5 minutes internet research! (maybe)
The EU-Aus/NZ deals are still under negotiation.

Another question would be "will it affect Rugby Union or wendyball?"

That's true, but it's not as if defeating Hitler wasn't in the yanks' interests aswell, is it?
