About

Euro XIII is a new European Professional Rugby League Cup, operating mostly in the non-traditional Rugby League areas of Europe. Dublin Blues will compete with teams from Edinburgh (Scotland), Rhonnda (Wales), Birmingham (England) as well as 12 other teams from Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, Turkey and Moldova.

Dublin Blues are Ireland’s oldest Rugby League team, founded by Brian Corrigan in 1989, and who won the inaugural Grand Final in 1997 in Rugby League Ireland, defeating Tallaght Tigers, and also that year becoming the first Irish side to compete in Rugby League’s Challenge Cup in Britain.

In 2008 the club folded, but were intending to come back last year as an outfit playing in the English Leagues, although the prospect of an Irish team playing all their games on the road put them off and with the new Euro XIII Cup the working group set about entering and have so far signed up two Irish internationals and a Head Coach.
