The United States national rugby league team, nicknamed the Tomahawks, represents the United States in international rugby league competitions. The team is controlled by the American National Rugby League (AMNRL) and is overseen by the Rugby League International Federation (RLIF).

The United States competed with little success in some international games during the 1950s, but did not return to consistent competition until 1987. Since the governance of the team was taken over by what is now the AMNRL in 1997, it has competed more regularly in international matches.
