This is a work of fiction. Please note that the story is based in Australia and is written in Queen's English therefore my American audience will notice subtle differences in wording or phrases.
There may be some confusion for many on the differences between Rugby League and Rugby Union [ Think of them as the North American equivalent of the U.S. NFL & Canadian CFL Football Leagues which have slightly different rules]. These are two of the most popular sports in Australia and I recommend looking at these links below for any clarification. Rugby Union is the more well known sport worldwide but in my humble opinion Rugby League is really the national sport in Australia next to the Australian Football League (Aussie Rules).
