The 2000 Rugby League Emerging Nations Tournament was held alongside the 2000 Rugby League World Cup. As with the World Cup, the competition suffered from poor attendances in comparison to the previous event. Somewhat bizarrely, the tournament was won by the British Amateur Rugby League Association (BARLA), who it can be claimed are neither "emerging" nor a "nation".
