We have been wondering whether interest in rugby league in the Northern region really does stop at the Swedish-Finnish border.

 

Would anyone know of anyone based in Finland with an interest in rugby league?  This would not be for them to do the work on starting the sport up (though that would be good), but initially to have contacts over the border.

 

Kind regards,
Steve Davy

I've been in Finland for 10 years now, never met many league people here though.

Have you tried the Australian and British Embassy for help? Is there a English speaking Network (Newspaper/Forum) that could help with the development?

Not yet, it's a good idea.

You might have some success in the Finnish rugby forum www.rugbyfinland.com most players usually have an account there (2051 people signed up at least!)

 

For the ex-pat/English speaking crowd the following are good places to start:
