Press statement regarding the employment of Martin Beddis as head coach for the national Norwegian Rugby League Wheelchair team.
At tonights extraordinary AGM a new president was elected by RLN!
Rugby League was first played in Norway in 2009. Lillestrøm Lions and Oslo Capitals were the first two clubs to play the sport in Norway. The first full season was played in 2010, which Oslo Capitals won.
Since then we have developed to having 14 clubs that in some shape or form play Rugby League.
To play in our domestic XIII's competition, RLN demands a functioning club board, healthy economy and a minimum number of active members. Due to this, we currently have a national competition and a regional development series. In addition to this, we are putting extra efforts into developing Rugby League for children and youths.
