    Interested to see how many Indian based players there are. I’ve not seen much posted online about a domestic comp.

    Their facebook suggests most overseas based Indians and probably a few local Indian RU players.

    Does Colombia have any domestic RL activity?

    Yes, it has gotten off the ground thanks to the huge efforts of the Latin Heat. It is small but thanks to a mixture of local players and expats living in Brisbane and Sydney, the national team will be competitive at their level.

    Good stuff. The work being put in by the Latin heat boys and Ade Adebisi in Nigeria is nothing short of phenomenal.

    Gives us expansionists hope for the future.

    The Colombian guys have worked hard to recruit players here in OZ and help get stuff started in Colombia itself. Hopefully India do something similar!

    Both are at the starting stage of their International RL development so here's hoping for a great game. I'm predicting a 26-12 victory for Colombia :)

    The Colombian captain was born in Colombia but adopted as a baby by Australian parents. He grew up in Brisbane playing rugby league and he says that he is incredibly proud to be not only the captain but one of the pioneers in taking the sport he loves back to his birth country.

    Hasn't India had a representative team in Sydney for a few years already? I remember something in the media about it.

    Fantastic. Do Colombia play in yellow and do you have a pic of their strip??

    Also what’s the nickname of the National Colombian team?

    Huge Indian following for rugby league in Sydney. You’ll find the next generation are currently playing touch footy and they are skilful players.
