Rugby League authorities in Brazil are not letting COVID-19 derail the spread of the code, with the Brazil Rugby League announcing the formation of three new clubs.
The São Paulo Raiders, Vitória Rhinos and Minas Miners join the likes of the Rio Warriors and Rio de Janeiro Sharks as dedicated Rugby League clubs formed across the South American nation and help underpin the Brazil Top One domestic competitions and national teams.
The Minas Miners, based out of São Lourenço in the state of Minas Gerais, will be captained by Brazil representative, Sarah Silva and coached by former Sunshine Coast Falcons player Zach Grundy, whilst the Espírito Santo based Vitória Rhinos boast numerous Brazilian internationals including Karina Araújo.
Finally the São Paulo Raiders will be based out of Minas Gerais.
