Ireland Rugby League World Cup 2022 Team Squad, Fixtures

Ireland Rugby League World Cup 2022 Team Squad – When we talk about the Rugby League world cup, mostly we hear about Australia, New Zealand and England. But there are thirteen other teams who are participating in Rugby League World Cup. And these teams have their own impact on the league. Today, we are going to discuss Ireland which has a strong lineup but has not been able to get its results right. 

Till 1995, Ireland never participated in any International competition. Ireland made their debut appearance at the 2000 Rugby League World cup where they finished fifth. The team repeated a similar performance at the 2008 RLWC and finished fifth. The last two editions have not gone well where the team has been knocked out in group stage.
