They weren't plonked into Super League.They gained their place on merit,by winning games on the field,without any money from the broadcast deal,or financial assistance from anywhere else.

It looks like from a small acorn...other smaller acorns have been formed.

I hope it progresses.
No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

that's brilliant news for Canadian rugby league this is what should of happened in the first place instead of piggy backing on the back of Super league, it just makes sense only a complete moron would with no financial sense would back anything other than,
lets hope Ottawa also see's sense too and joins that league rather going down another financial ruin

maybe the winners of that league could then play the winners of the championship and help develop it further here's wishing them the best of luck :)

Good news but it is a very big market to crack. Union spent big money taking Premiership games to the USA but flopped and cancelled it long before Covid. Both codes of Rugby would only be minority sports in the short to medium term. Its taken 'Soccer' decades to grab a foothold.

Not every club or match is an attempt to build a professional game. Can't they just play for the fun of it??

Canada RL promotes and facilitates the playing of RL as an alternative to Union, and that creates sporting choices.

It's very welcome to see real Canadians playing some Rugby League, we haven't seen much of that the last few years..

No let's not have "Ottawa Aces". Lets just have a local Ottawa amateur club playing league in Canada because some real Canadians prefer to play it rather than union..

We seem to have programmed ourselves to dump impossible ambitions on people in other countries who just want to play RL for fun....

we know Ottawa aces are just a name but there is no reason in discrediting there existence there's no problem having a second team from that area if there is enough players to do so after all there was intentions of them entering division one like Toronto did however that's like poking yourself in the eye for a second time.

just maybe now there has been enough news to get others interested to get that league started even if it was semi pro its far better situation than before

I don’t think anybody is out to crack a market. That lesson must certainly have been learnt. Once people understand you can’t run before you walk is the time to crack the market.

You simply can’t take on a market without infrastructure.

Ottawa aces are not just a name they have signed players, but it remains to be seen if they ever play, the last lot paid out many £Millions and reneged on $Millions and the owners of Ottawa OSEG don't have the money. How much do you think it will cost to operate Ottawa as a semi-pro club back and forwards across the Atlantic?

The real subject here is Canada RL, who have organised an Amateur RL tournament which is a great leap forward from them having no tournament at all. However that's nothing new RL Tournaments have taken place in BC. No doubt many ex-pat and heritage Antipodean Rugby Union players will play out this competition.

It's not a matter of me discrediting their existence, its a matter of not projecting any amateur club who wants to play grass roots RL into even a semi professional club. This in not much different to the story in Scotland where few play RL and recently nobody played it. Some lads are now organising something for fun. But they won't be playing in the Championships ever.
