History

The team was created in February 2013, when talks began about running a Rugby Union World Cup. Although that project aroused very little interest, the then Jingdaoese autonomous region of Calbion and the nation of Gerenia arranged two friendly matches between their respective sides.

The first friendly was played at the International Sports Centre, in Port Isherwood, with Gerenia defeating Calbion by 25–13.[1] Five days later, Calbion beat Gerenia 20–9 at the Caerdragon Stadium in Pentyre[2].

The national team also played friendlies against Mercury and Birgeshir.
