RLIF Awards


RLIF Awards

The Rugby League International Federation (RLIF) currently oversees and awards the major international sporting award for rugby league on an annual basis and has done so since its inception in 2004.

This ceremony awards the best referee, coach, developing nations player, international newcomer, captain and a team of the year.

In 2007, the RLIF did not organise any awards. To fill the gap, Rugby League World magazine asked its Golden Boot panel to come up with winners in the existing categories used by the RLIF.

Golden Boot

:"See main:" Rugby League World Golden Boot Award

The Rugby League World Golden Boot Award is given to the international player of the year, as determined by a ballot of international rugby league writers and broadcasters. The Golden Boot was founded in 1985 and is awarded by the British magazine Rugby League World. It has been presented during the RLIF Awards since 2004.
