The Peru national rugby league team (Spanish: rugby league equipo nacional de Peru), nicknamed Emperadores Peruanos (English: Peruvian Emperors), represents Peru in rugby league. They made their debut at the first ever Latino Sevens on 17 October 2015, making it into the finals.[1]

History

The sport has yet to be played on Peruvian soil but efforts are in place to bring rugby league to Central and South America through the Latin Heat Rugby League.[citation needed] The Latin Heat fielded enough Peruvian players to make up a Rugby league sevens team so they have entered into the first ever Latino Rugby League Sevens tournament.

During the 2015 Latino Sevens Luis Guillermo Fhon became the first Peruvian to break a bone, his collar bone for his nation's colours.[citation needed]
