Lithuania's first game

Recommended Posts

Lithuania became the latest international Rugby League nation going down 58-0 to Wales Dragonhearts

Congratulations to Lithuania who become the latest addition to the international game. Their side, composed of Lithuanian born players who have all emigrated to the UK, travelled to Cardiff Arms Park to take on the community representative team Wales Dragonhearts. A commendable effort given that a number of the side had not played a 13 man game of rugby before.

Welcome to the international League family, Lithuania

Not sure what the Lithuanians standing at least 10 yards behind the play the ball is all about when in possession!

Good effort though, the Wales dragonhearts beat a solid England south east team recently

I've played with a few of the Lithuanian lads at Kings Lynn. Good bunch, hard as nails, and love the game. They've got tons to learn but good to see them setting up their own national side.

Kings Lynn?? Is there still a team in Kings Lynn, I thought they folded a few years back (though of course you might be talking about a few years back!).

Used to have a ton of young Lithuanian juniors (U15's) involved down here in east London. All were tough little buggers, and generally pretty big lads. A few with a fair bit of promise too. All now sadly lost to the game after the funding to the game in London was pulled.

No - sadly folded now after the Dunn’s left and a fair few Lithuanians went home. The club is still active on a social front but no playing/training activity sadly.

Vince Karalius was part Lithuanian. Enough said.

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end that discussion.
