Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at individual nations within Latin America which have Rugby League activity or representation on the international stage. Today we will be looking at one of the participants of the Latin American Rugby League Championship…Mexico

Mexico is another nation which is hoping to start up the “Greatest Game of All”, Rugby League. Mexico is another new nation which has joined the long queue of new nations attempting to bring the 13 Player code to Central America. I got in contact with one of the representatives of Mexico Rugby League (Carlos Munguia) who shared the history, current situation and future ambitions of Mexico Rugby XIII (both domestically and internationally).
A historic Rugby League tour encompassing California and Mexico will give enthusiasts a chance to actively participate in the global spread of the game – and earn an international cap to boot!
A mad Cowboys fan has taken time out from the build-up to the NRL grand final to help the earthquake-ravaged Mexican Rugby League team get noticed around the world.
ON the same week that competitive rugby league begins in Mexico, a new head coach has been appointed to the Australian-based GYG Latin Heat
Argentinian Gabriel Keegan will take the reins of the Heat, a rugby league team representing players with heritage in 24 Latin American nations.
He once burnt animal hearts before a rugby league game on the Day of the Dead to signify his Latino heritage.
Now Latin Heat Rugby League’s first Mexican representative has spoken on Cinco de Mayo of the elation of being selected for next month’s international match against Thailand in Sydney.
