North American Rugby League Forms, Play Begins in June
Do we really need a second United States rugby league? Seemed Major League Rugby was moving in a positive direction and expanding their base. Some of these squads are in the same city though it seems the initial attempt at the league will not see true home markets if I am reading this right.


A new 14-team professional rugby league competition involving teams across North America will kick off later this year, organizers said Wednesday.

The North American Rugby League will comprise 12 teams from the United States and two from Canada, and is due to kick off on June 19-20.

The US teams will be divided into two conferences based on geography, with six teams in an East Coast Conference and six competing in a West Coast conference. Two Canadian teams -- Toronto Wolfpack and Ottawa Aces -- will join the East Coast Conference in 2022.

A statement from NARL said all games in each conference will be played at a single venue on the same day with no fans in attendance in order to mitigate the risks from Covid-19.

Major League Rugby plays "rugby union" while this new circuit will play "rugby league". Evidently those are two different forms of the sport.
