The West Indies Rugby League has confirmed that it has applied for a position in the third annual European Rugby League Federation York Nines tournament which is scheduled to be June this year. The prestigious tournament, which has gained recognition in the Rugby League community in a very short period time, officially kicks off the Rugby League 9�s Grand Prix circuit.
West Indies have already had their entry confirmed for the second leg of the tournament, the Middlesex 9�s, and hope that they can also participate in the 24 team York 9�s.
The York 9�s was won by French club, Lezignan in 2003, and in 2004 looks like it will host clubs from France, Scotland, England and Russia. The event will be held at York�s Heworth Rugby Club.
The result of West Indies application will be made known in the next few weeks.
