English: Rugby league has been played in France since 1934. As with rugby union, the heartland of the game is the south of the country. During the Second World War, in association with the French rugby union, the sport was banned by the Vichy government, an act which the sport has struggled to recover from. There has been a recent resurgence of the sport following the admission of Catalans Dragons to the European Super League.
Français : Le rugby à XIII a été introduit en France au cours des années 1930, on dénombre actuellement plus de 100 clubs sur tout le territoire. Les meilleurs clubs français disputent le championnat de France Élite 1, à l'exception de deux clubs qui évoluent dans les championnats anglais : les Dragons Catalans en Super League et le Toulouse Olympique XIII en Co-operative Championship (2e division anglaise).
