Commonwealth Championships draw announced

The 2018 Commonwealth Championships get underway at the end of the month in Moreton Bay.

The Nines tournament is a precursor to the 2026 Commonwealth Games where rugby league is attempting entry.

“The Commonwealth Championships provided an outstanding competition at Glasgow 2014,” he said. “Following the success of the Women’s World Cup, these Championships embrace an expanded event including six Women’s nations in addition to the eight Men’s teams,” RLIF CEO David Collier said.

“RLIF is extremely grateful to Moreton Bay for the excellent facilities and to the continued support of the Commonwealth Games for the sport of Rugby League.

“The 2018 championships will provide a great weekend of world class sport for spectators and players alike and we look forward to welcoming the teams to Queensland this month.”
