Formerly the main component of the Great Britain Rugby League team, England have now fully branched out on their own and are 1 of the 3 powerhouses of world Rugby League.

Although Great Britain have won the World Cup 3 times, as England the Lions have never managed to win the title (they have been runners up twice) and as hosts in 2013, England will be one of the favourites to pick up the title.

The England team is made up of players from both the Super League and the NRL which gives them one of the strongest squads in Rugby League.

England RL

The England Rugby League team is made up of the very best from the European Super League and the National Rugby League (NRL) and are the second most successful team in the World.

Although England, enjoy rivalries with most other European nations it is with Rugby League most illustrious team Australia in which they enjoy there biggest, with matches between the 2 always guaranteeing huge crowds and great games.

Since the break up of the Great Britain team it has been the ‘Lions’ that have seen the most success in the British Isles making it to the final of the recent 4 nations competition and winning the inaugural European Tri-nations with wins over Wales and France.

As hosts of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, the Lions are amongst the favourites for the cup and will be hoping that the large home crowds can make the difference.

The England team is made up of players from both the Super League and the NRL which gives them one of the strongest squads in Rugby League but it also makes for a fascinating mixture of styles as many of the players are coached to play the ‘NRL Way’ and many are coached to play the ‘Super League Way’.

That can prove to be both a blessing and a curse for the England RL National Test side as when on form the 2 styles (the NRL safety first against the Super League’s speculative style) can mix to create a style of its own that the defences of other teams are just not used to defending and the attacks of other teams are just not used to attacking. Of course, when it doesn’t quite click it can lead to errors and that always proves costly at this very highest level of sport.

In recent years England have enjoyed huge up lifts in crowds with London enjoying huge crowd at Wembley and the former Olympic Stadium for England matches against New Zealand and Australia whilst up in the heartlands, England have enjoyed sell out matches on numerous occasion.

England now offer fans the opportunity to watch top class action and some of the most impressive sports stars in the world combine with the intrigue of welcoming players back from the NRL who many may not have seen since their last performance for England.

Along with the 100,000’s watching England matches live in International Test Series, 4 Nations and Rugby League Cup competitions, millions also watch and follow the action live at home.
