Rugby League Happening!

Chicago North Shore is developing its rugby league section. Every player is welcome to train and put themselves forward for selection whether they come from another club or sport. No rugby league experience needed.

The goals of this effort are:

  • Introduce rugby league

  • Promote rugby league to develop rugby union players

  • Provide a new rugby experience

  • Join the national team identification and selection pathway

  • Create an opportunity for players who might not play rugby union together to play league

  • Committed to sharing coaching, organization, and opportunities.

Learn about the club's first rugby league season below.
