A planned boycott by players of the Lebanese national rugby league team of an upcoming fixture was narrowly avoided Wednesday, after the sport's international federation mediated between the players and the national federation. Cedars' captain Robbie Farah had said Monday that players were planning to tape over the Lebanese Rugby League Federation logo on their kits at a forthcoming test game against Fiji this coming Saturday.The Rugby League International Federation stepped in shortly afterwards, offering to mediate between the Lebanese players and their national federation.In return for playing Saturday's game with unaltered kits, the RLIF promised to follow up the players' complaints with the Lebanese federation. Abi Said stated that the federation would be able to defend itself against any scrutiny by international federations, and that all its finances were in order.Harb said that some of the players had taken a lawsuit against the national federation.
