Cymru RL

The Welsh rugby league team is the third eldest RL side in the world after England and New Zealand. Currently coached by dual-code star Iestyn Harris, Wales' finest hours came in 1995 and 2000 with the XIII making the semi-finals of both tournaments.


Rugby League World Cup - 2000
Wales reached the semi-finals of the 2000 World Cup, before being knocked out by Australia in a memorable encounter at Huddersfield. The tournament saw the Millennium Stadium hosting the Welsh side in a group game against the Kiwis.
