Represented nations and territories[edit]

History[edit]

The West Indies Rugby League Federation was formed in 2003. The West Indies team has participated in the Middlesex Nines (2004) and York Nines (2004, 2005) competitions.

The first thirteen-a-side game of rugby league played in the West Indies was at Kingston, Jamaica on July 13, 2005. A competition between the Vauxhall Vultures, Sharks, St Catherines, Army, and Nomads is scheduled to start in Kingston in August 2005.

The West Indies national side was planning to be involved in the 2008 Rugby League World Cup qualifying in the United States in 2006 but pulled out due to lack of funds.

Match vs South Africa[edit]

The West Indies' only international fixture was played against South Africa, then known as the Wild Dogs, on 9 October 2004 at New River Stadium in London, England, winning 50-22.[1] Jamaican Jermaine Coleman was initially named to play but was replaced by Davey.[2]
