Another instance of rugby league and geopolitics colliding is in Ireland. The governing body covers Northern Ireland and Republic Of Ireland as one national team, despite officially being two different countries.
The two do play each other, with their Origin series approaching early next month. As such, I've decided to list both the fixtures in a similar way to the Latin Heat matches. Italicised to indicate that they are not full test internationals.
