Chile is one of the newest nations being considered to debut as an international Rugby League team. Although they haven’t made their “official” introduction on the International stage, it is hoped in the foreseeable future that they will play.
A THREE-try performance for Chile in the final of the inaugural Chimi Copa de Rugby XIII has seen winger Mayer Flamenco receive a late call-up for Sunday’s international rugby league clash between Latin America and Thailand.
With just 24 hours to kick-off in the GYG Latin Heat v Thailand Stars clash at Windsor, Flamenco ran riot as Chile scored a historic 28-8 win over composite side the Sun Gods.
CHILE looks set to start a surprising favourite for the first all-Latino rugby league tournament, the Copa de Rugby XIII, to be held in Sydney on May 31st.
