Mod league is a form of rugby league developed by the Australian Rugby League. It was developed to introduce children to rugby league.

Mod league follows on from mini footy; it introduces laws more common to the full international laws of rugby league, whilst also keeping the theme of being an introductory level. It is a necessary bridge between mini footy and the full rigours of international rugby league laws.
