Italia Rugby Football League Officially Launches New Website!

From Joel Morgan at IRFL

The Italia Rugby Football League website has been under renewal the past several months until it recently became online to provide a more professional and streamlined approach for our Federation that falls under the targets we outlined previously – to FIX and ENERGISE Italia Rugby a XIII development! One thing that you may come across with our promotion will be ‘a first’ as this new era begins … This new website has a new format, new sections, full translation of the RLIF rules from English to Italian (a first) – all 17 Chapters, updates on history, original pioneers, news, blogs, events and much more as our promotion content plus initiatives progress!

The Italia RFL was founded in June 2010 as another Federation for Italia Rugby a XIII, while providing a protection, professional approach and right foundation for growth for the sport in Italy. Specifically coming from our original statement, “The new association has its ultimate goal for the growth of the movement of rugby a 13 in Italy, the protection of the teams that are part of rugby league and share the values that represent the sport.” Hence, the Italia RFL is planning and implementing steps in place, such as domestic events (Coppa Italia announced days ago), positive working relationships with our contacts and partners, press, media promotion and TV coverage to provide the committed sources of Growth, Development and Action required for an efficient Rugby League movement in Italy.

We are more than happy to accept any comment, improvement suggestions and ideas on our development and promotional aspects, please contact us at for any constructive feedback or message. If your business wants to advertise or become a partner on our website, please contact us also.

It is important to note we are in identifying new development volunteers/members (some already providing help), businesses or organisation partners, or sponsors that have the passion and commitment for Rugby League to help our Italia RFL team – both in Italy and Internationally.

This website will be a hub for all Italians (fans of all Oval codes), people of Italian origin, Rugby League fans and new followers of the XIII. We have acknowledged this through the use of most articles that allow the user to choose ‘Italian’ or ‘English’ under the article.

    My name is Orazio D’Arro’ I was fortunate and blessed to have been given the opportunity to captain the Italia Rugby league team from 1995 thru to 2001.

    In this period I lead Men on to the Rugby league field who were all filled with passion and honor.

    Who all had a love and desire for the greatest game of all.

    But most importantly it was an opportunity to represent a country bestowed with riches in culture and history I cannot explain to those of you interested the feelings I had when singing the national anthem or what it was like to represent my country.

    But I can explain to you all the great sadness and embarrassment I have when I read stories of rifts and conflict within the Italia Rugby league family.

    I sincerely apologise to the international rugby league community for this and the damage that is being done to our great game.

    To Those of you involved in this dispute I call upon you to forget your personal gain and think of the opportunities that are ahead with a healthy and united domestic competition and the strong possibility of success on the world stage .

    Italia truly has the ability to be in the top ten rugby league nations within the next ten years so please think of the opportunities in the future for all including the many generations ahead.

    Please look to the Mick Pezzano’s, John Benigni’s and the Tas Baiteri for guidance as these are the men who have worked tirelessly for one result and that is for Rugby league to flourish in Italy.

    Please also take the time to reflect on the recent performance of Anthony Minichello and what one of the world’s best players has done to develop the game .

    I am sure that Anthony had nothing to prove and he did not need to lead Italia in the world cup qualifiers but he like me understands the passion to wear the Azzurri Jersey.

    To those who write fruitless and counterproductive blogs and articles please understand that you are damaging our game and Italia’s future opportunities your comments are not needed and you are not working to resolve issues.

    If you need to understand the damage and the fallout from a spilt please look to the Arl and Super league war where teams and players were sentenced to death.

    I assure you there was no winner in that war and there will be no winner between IRFL and FIRL.

    I call upon the European Rugby league federation to resolve this conflict please use whatever powers you have to ensure that Italia rugby league is not lost in such a challenging sporting market .

    I truly believe that Italia is a strong commodity which is needed for the future growth of Rugby league.

    RLWC 2013 launched its Trophy Tour in Huddersfield.

    Huddersfield was proud to host the launch of the Rugby League World Cup 2013 Trophy Tour at St George’s Square. The Trophy arrived at the place where Rugby League started in 1895.

    The Trophy will then begin its journey around the UK before the start of the biggest global sporting event of next year – the Rugby League World Cup 2013.

    Go to and watch the events of the day. Scholes Junior School, Holmfirth, Huddersfield re-creates that historic event of 1985. Please join the KLTV forum and leave your comments on our website.

    Kindest regards
