History - Hungary are a new Rugby League playing nation and continues the trend of European nations taking up the sport.
In early 2009 Hungary were unranked in world rankings but were awarded official observer status by the Rugby League International Federation.
The recent success of the Rugby League World Cup will provide further funds to develop the sport throughout Europe. The Rugby League European Federation (RLEF) will now have more funds to invest in development officers and continue assisting rugby league's growth. With the right support many more nations including Hungary could possibly be involved in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup qualifiers.
