Tonga National Rugby League

At a Special General Meeting of International Rugby League (IRL), the membership confirmed the IRL Board decision to expel Tonga National Rugby League (TNRL) by a majority of nine votes to five.

TNRL had appealed the original decision and appeared at the SGM to present their case to the membership. The membership heard and were able to question testimony from TNRL and from IRL investigators before voting to confirm support for the Board’s original decision.

IRL now expects, in due course, an application for membership to be received from the Tongan rugby league community.
