The Association of Rugby League Clubs of Russia (ARLKR)

2010 began with no clear framework or competition, within this context the old figurehead Taturyan established the Association of Rugby League Clubs of Russia (ARLKR) seemingly independent of the RRLF.

The following clubs joined the ARLKR association:

1. Nevsky Gate

2. Vereyskaya Bears

3. Threshers

4. North Moscow

5. Nara

6. Otradnoe

7. Spartak-Losinka.

(In 1991, Edgard Taturian, the former coach of the Soviet Rugby team, split from the Russian rugby union and took over some teams to found the Russian Rugby League. The game grew and became known as the Russian Rugby League Federation.)
