As part of the RLEF development plan, Estonia has participated in fourth tier competitions with other developing nations. Estonia have had very limited success in international competition, failing to register a single win.
The year 2006 saw the inaugural entrance of the Estonia into international competition. They played in the Central Europe Development Tri-Nations against Germany and Austria. Both of Estonia's games were high scoring, but they lost both matches.
In 2008 Estonia them entered the RLEF European Bowl. This tournament was originally scheduled to be contested among Estonia, Latvia and Ukraine. However, Ukraine was unable to play in the competition, so it became a two game test series, with Latvia taking both matches.
The 2009 European Bowl was again scheduled to include Estonia, Latvia and Ukraine. Ukraine was able to compete this time, and dominated the competition. The game that assured the Ukrainians the championship was an 86–0 victory over Estonia.
