The Dragons will be out to end a fairytale, as the Welsh tackle the upstart Americans in Wrexham on Sunday (Monday morning Australian time).
Following the success of their meetings in the Rugby League World Qualifiers last season - which saw Brian McDermott’s USA make the finals in 2017 - Canada, Jamaica and United States have unveiled a new tournament, ‘The Rugby League Americas Cup.’
Leeds Rhinos will again show their commitment to help develop Rugby League around the World when they allow two young USA Rugby League players to join them for Pre-season training camp in Florida. “The fact that the Leeds Rhinos, one of the best known teams in the World, are willing to give two USA Rugby League players this opportunity speaks volumes about their desire to see Rugby League grow on a global scale” said USARL director Spinner Howland. “This is the fourth visit to the USA for Leeds and every time they come they not only increase the profile of the sport in the USA, but they have always offered help in development from players to administration ideas.”
