Rugby League – A Beginner’s Guide

AHEAD of the Rugby League World Cup match between Cook Islands and Tonga at the Riverside, we thought you might like to brush up on the sport.

We don’t play much rugby league in these parts, but we welcome new friends and new sports and this guide, put together by Amy Campbell and Jim Dyson at MFC Foundation might just help you understand a bit more, just follow the link.

RLWC Booklet

Follow this link to book tickets for Sunday’s game which the Cook Islands need to win to have any chance of reaching the knockout stages. Standing in their way are a team who are rated Number 2 in the world and one which has won both its group games so far.

As a Foundation we have been teaching rugby league in schools in the build-up to the tournament and players and coaching staff from Cook Islands were welcome visitors to Chandlers Ridge Primary School recently.
