    That's right, no spoliers.

    On a pitch made for (field) hockey, with soccer lines also painted it, plus lime marked lines, lego style corner posts, driving rain, a beer tent, and rowdy supporters, Canada bought it's games to 2 and 0 for the year.

    "Canada has improved its 2012 summer international rugby league record to 2-0 by doubling up Lebanon 36-18 on a wet night in Toronto."

    Canada has gone from no ranking to 21st in the world in just two years.

    It'd be great if Manly could do some sort of 'adoption' with them.

    Then we'd sell a lot more merchandise, etc, and help an emerging nation.

    Wouldn't take much, some hints, tips, etc.

    Party on!

      It would be pretty funny and the ultimate insult for Dogs fans.

      "Your supporters might be mostly Lebanese, but we are the life and blood of your International Team....and over in Lebanon, they love Manly."

      Manly's long term plan to turn Dogs fans into Manly fans:

      1) Send the Manly Coach to turn their team into Manly
      2) Support their International team so that their future supporters are now Manly supporters.
      3) Annex the team.

      Haven't we done this before? (Just joking Norths fans)

      Only if we can hand pick them.

      Canadians are into Yawnion. The battle is lost there.

      It's because they only just realised in the last 2 years that there are 2 forms of Rugby. Be nice WAMF, they are a little slow ;)

      If Lebanon had their full squad they wipe the Canadians. Throw in Farah, Mannah, Mansour and a heap of lower grade players and they will be too strong.

      Farah can't due to repping Aus in this world cup cycle
      Mannah can't due to repping NSW (have to be made available to play for Aus)
      So if those 2 were to play for Lebanon they'd have to be given clearance by the RLIF

        Haha, not as silly as it sounds. Anything that takes loyalty out our way is a good thing. I would welcome anyone as supporters of the greatest team on the planet!

        Sweet thanks Global. I'm going to go watch them take on the USA Tomahawks on September 8th and Lamport Stadium. Woulda been a looong time since I've seen some live rugby league. Cheers!
