Here in Bangkok I just witnessed a sensational report on the dispute in Greece between the official government supported Hellenic Rugby League, which has four teams, and the breakaway group which is recognised by the RLIF and RLEF.

Interviews were mostly with the breakaway group, training in the snow. Though the spokesman from the official group
gets a say. The report explains how the Greek police stopped a match and how now games of the breakaway group have to be held in secret. The Greek government will try to stop Greek rugby league players from participating in the World Cup.

John Psaropoulos reporting from Athens.

I saw it too! A very sorry situation indeed, especially as they are already deep into the World Cup qualifiers now!

When the police turn up the players could just stand still and pretend to be playing union

I know nothing of this situation but it never ceases to amaze me how rugby league folk can fall out with each other when there are so few of them. The game is constantly held back by infighting in the UK - seems maybe everywhere?

not sure that would work, all it takes is for one of the cops to notice there are no pockets in the shorts.
