That league is going through some tough times right now, all but 4 teams split to form USA rugby league.
I hadn't heard about that until now. It looks like the Philly/South Jersey area teams kind of spearheaded the schism, leaving the NY/Upstate/CT teams in the lurch. Considering how the NY Raiders have been kind of a "work in progress" since their founding, this really only leaves AMNRL with 3 established teams. The fact that the new, breakaway league is planning on calling their NY/NJ area team "The Knights" seems like a real slap in the face to the NY Knights of AMNRL, too.
EDIT: My mistake, the Aston Bulls stuck with AMNRL, while New Haven went to the USARL. I guess there's no regionalism in the split, though I think the head of the Fight will be the head of the new League league.
Cypher, do you play league?
