Russian Rugby League Results & Tables

Rugby league was played in the Soviet Union prior to World War 2, but died out. Rugby league returned in the late 1980s thanks largely to the efforts of Edgar Taturyan. Early success for Russian rugby league came in the form of one of the Locomotive RFC junior team of 1987 which was sent to England to compete in a series of matches. Despite being expected to lose every game to their far more experienced opponents, the youngsters won all five of their matches. After the initial formation of the RRFL many of Maslov and Taturyan’s RRU associates changed allegiances and joined the administration of Russia’s new fledging sport. Prior to the commencement of the RRFLs inaugural rugby league championship in 1990, 3 teams, Moscow Magicians, Leningrad and Tiraspol were sent to England to learn the finer points of rugby league. From the early formation of the league to 1993 the competition was going strong with junior participation on the rise and teams of Kazakhstan and Georgia trying to gain admittance to the league. Kazan and Locomotive Moscow made history in December 2001 by becoming the first Russian teams to feature in the European Rugby League Challenge Cup. More recenlty Russian Rugby league has seen a small crisis which seems to be overcome now with new administartion. Russia will be comepteing once more in the World Cup Qualifiers against Lebanon, Italy and Serbia.
