Potential new RL playing nations? in The International Rugby League Forum Posted July 5, 2021 1 hour ago, Norfolk said: I seem to recall 'West Papua ' playing a game in the past but that it was made up of exiles. Checking wikipedia it seems they were PNG-based. It might be similar to RL's brush with Catalonia. People would play RL if they could play as West Papua but their inclination to play as representatives of Indonesia might be very limited indeed. I wonder if the Indonesian government forbids or is hostile towards the natives playing RL?
