Post subject: Rugby League programs in the USSR and Russia
Reply with quote

Rugby league began to develop in the USSR in the late 80's. In August 1989 the "Union of Rugby-13 of the USSR" was created.
In December 1989 in Leeds in the office of the International Rugby League of Great Britain negotiations were held, which resulted in the invitation to train for London, coaches, judges and players of three teams:
"Tiraspol", "Lions of St. Petersburg", "Moscow Magicians."

In January 1990 the first rugby league match was held between the teams of Moscow and St. Petersburg.

And in April a delegation of 90 people flew to London for an internship.



Training ended in control matches with English teams:
"Olten" (amateur team) - "Lions of Petersburg" 20: 43
"Leeds" (reserve squad) - "Moscow Magicians" 30: 14



"Vigan" (youth squad) - "Tiraspol" 26: 26

This is a game shirt "Moscow magicians".

Saturated at the event was 1991!
In the USSR two teams from London "Raidel York" and "Fulham" flew in and held three exhibition games in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Alma-Ata.
This is a program in St. Petersburg.


And on May 23 in Moscow there was a match between the national teams of the USSR and Great Britain (Team of clubs) .

In the early 90s for rugby in Russia came hard times, but for Rugby League money still were and the Russian team flew to the games in France and South Africa ...

And in 2000 the Russian team took part in the World Cup. The first and only time.





They lost Fiji 12-38, England 4 - 74 and Australia 4 - 110.





In the early 00's the Federation Rugby League had much more money than the rugby Federation.
