Rugby League National Team Names
Many of the rugby league national teams from around the world have another name by which they are well known.
These are not usually official names, and some national teams have more than one nickname. I have tried to find the most commonly used nickname, and included others if known. See also the list of Australian NRL team nicknames. If you have any corrections or additions, please let me know.
