Post Rugby in Iceland
Hello,

Rugby is a recent but growing sport in Iceland. The national team has played its first official games in 2013, and the federation is recognized by the Rugby Europe Association (former FIRA-AER). Due to the insularity of the country, Icelandic clubs and the national team are always looking forward to play 15s, 7s and mixed touch games against foreign teams. If you love rugby and you are visiting iceland or if you play in a rugby team and if you want to discover Iceland in a rugby atmosphere, contact us.

Your opening bowler looks solid.

Rugby, in Iceland. Nothing new I saw my missus and a pensioner mauling in the low freezer section of my local store last week over a reduced Peking duck. :dontknow:

Quick, get them into the 7 Nations and get their clubs in the Pro 12.

It is our duty to develop them. Above all else, this should be our mission.

I know they are football mad, they have the highest attendance in Europe.......really. (per capita ofcourse ;) ) so i wonder where the interest from this is coming from.
