History

Papua New Guinea is the only nation to boast Rugby League as its national sport and, since taking a bow in the game’s 1985-88 tournament, the Papuans have been World Cup ever-presents.

Rugby League was brought to PNG during the 1930s and 40s by Australian miners and serviceman, and the sport quickly established itself in the national psyche.
