The Cumbria rugby league team is an English representative team consisting of players who were born in the county of Cumbria and the historical county of Cumberland. They play fixtures against international representative sides, often acting as opposition in warm-up fixtures for touring international sides.[1][2]

The Cumbrian side features professional players from the European Super League, the Co-operative Championship, Championship 1 and the amateur game.[3][4]

Cumbria are coached by Paul Crarey, with assistant coaches Gary Charlton of Workington Town and Whitehaven's David Seeds.[5]

Cumbria played the England national rugby league team as part of England's preparation for the 2010 Four Nations.[6] The match raised funds for the Rugby Football League's benevolent fund and the family of Garry Purdham, who was among the victims of the Cumbria shootings tragedy on 2 June 2010.[7][8] The game was watched by 5,250 spectators at Whitehaven's Recreation Ground and ended 18–18,[9] raising over £50,000 for its cause.[10]
