Ireland Rugby League

Rugby League in Ireland took a hug step forward with the formation of the Dublin Blues club tam in 1989 and since then the domestic competition as expanded across all of Ireland with 20 teams now playing the summer season.

The Irish national team made their debut in the 2000 World cup, but it was in the 2008 World Cup where the Irish started to take the Rugby League team to their hearts as the Wolfhounds reached the quarter finals

Thanks to an increased international calendar, the Irish national team now get to play more matches and against a higher calibre of opposition. That can only help the Ireland Rugby League Test Team and that intern of course helps the sport as a whole.

The most famous Irish born Rugby League player too many fans nowadays is former Gateshead, Hull, Wigan and Great Britain winger Brian Carney who showed the potential of Irish players and although he represented Great Britain at International level, thanks to an improved international calendar new Irish born players coming through will be able to represent their country.

In recent times, there has been a big movement in Ireland to include a number of home grown players who ply their trade in Ireland in the national team who along with England based players and heritage players from Australia are giving the Irish national test side a unique feel and a togetherness that many tests dies cannot match. This mix also gives them a unique playing style which makes them unpredictable and a challenge for the other Rugby League Test Nations.
