The Armed Forces Rugby League Cymru team was set up by Welsh veterans who play Rugby League in Wales. The dominance of the sport and governance across the border meant it was difficult to set up or join other teams. A team committee was formed and sought and was granted permission to use the AFRL name and association.

The first game was played on the 26th of November 2022 at Bethesda Rugby Club, where £3000 was raised for local AF charities. The team was made up of Veterans who are Welsh or have played for a Welsh club, and invited members.
