Welcome to the RL Players Portal


The RL Players Portal is a comprehensive online resource for the sport’s most important stakeholders designed and curated by Rugby League Cares.


The portal features information and advice on all the issues faced by players both during and after their careers as professional athletes, with the aim of enabling players to lead fulfilling and enjoyable lives.


From guidance on Operational Rules pertaining to players such as gambling and doping, through to health and wellbeing and help with accessing education and training support, the portal contains a wide selection of videos and articles produced from a player’s perspective.


RL Cares is a wholly independent charity that delivers player welfare services to professional and semi-professional players. We work alongside the governing body, clubs, our own partners and other stakeholders to offer world-leading levels of support to players.


If you are a player who needs further help or advice on any issue not featured on the portal, please get in touch –


All enquiries are treated in total confidence.
