Rugby league Deutschland

Saturday 1st July 2016, The NRLD brought their annual 9s tournament to RFC Paderborn. The day was hailed a success after players traveling from all over germany attended, players from Berlin, Bremen, Heidelberg, Gnarrenburg and Munster.

The day started off with basic handling skills lead by National coach Simon Copper.


The day then went onto attacking and defending drills where National Coach Bob Dougton took the lead. There was a vast experience gap with players who have played rugby league all their life to players who have just started to play rugby league this very day. However this didn’t hinder any one to join in, learn and coach each other.
