Will that be the target then to produce RL players in North America? Are you suggesting/hoping that these 'all American' hunks will lay down their Baseball Bats, throw away their Gridiron gear and break up their Ice Hockey Sticks? Optimism is a fine attribute but, I think your estimate of 10 years to provide a stream of players of SL standard is more wishful than optimistic!


You do realise there are thousands of lads at University in the states on Football scholarships, the vast majority of whom will not make it to a pro footballer. Hayne has made them curious about RL and we should hook enough over time

From media reports, it sounds like he has been gathering a bit of adverse publicity too! :wink:

Hayne didn't make the yanks curious about the game. It was being played there 40 years ago as I know. We didn't have internet then along with digital services we have today. Perez knows that and will use all the media services available to make it work.

Something our game should have used 20 years ago,instead of sly.
