Fantastic! I didn't know Spain had taken up RL, but great to see another big European country playing the sport.

The Catalonians should have vetoed them! ;)

Article in the English language version of Spanish newspaper El Pais showing how the game is developing rapidly. I sense that Broozer may now start to think about a Paris mini-break.

No plans for Paris, but since I decided to visit my Colombian friend in Spain, things seem to be kicking off in Spain and there are talks of Colombia v Jamaica.

 

I may start taking requests for where people want RL to spring up before I book my next trip!

First Spanish Rugby League coaches qualified

The Asociación Española de Rugby League (AERL) has hosted its first technical course with 24 new local coaches receiving their Level 1 certificate after the two-day gathering in Albal, Valencia.
Six clubs were present - Irreductibles Mislata RL, RL Albal Valencian Warriors, Rugby Sciences Valencia, CR Edetans Montcada, Alzira Rugby Club, UER Montcada – in addition to a delegation from Madrid, to receive instruction from RLEF Coaching Manager Martin Crick and fellow tutor, Spanish-speaking Tiziano Franchini from the Federazione Italiana Rugby League.
The AERL hailed the: “Extraordinary work of Martin and Tiziano and the great atmosphere created by the course. Thanks to the RLEF the work that was carried out has been unforgettable for all of Spanish rugby league,” said secretary general Aitor Davila.
Juan Pablo Range from Irreductibles Mislata RL added: "Everyone is more engaged and eager to grow this project now. Today we all have clear concepts and even more enthusiasm and love for rugby league."
Gonzalo Morro of Valencia Sciences commented: "Having professionals like Martin and Tiziano for the whole weekend was a luxury - today I feel like a great professional."
The AERL expects to run a five-match club championship this year.

Best of luck to them. I hope they have a home fixture some point soon (any excuse for me to go to Spain!)

Cheers, will look into that (June being the most awkward month for it to be, what with my friend visiting the UK that month anyway!). I'll check what dates she's over here

SPANISH RUGBY LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP KICKS OFF

 

History was made on Sunday as the first Spanish rugby league championship kicked off with a match between Valencian Warriors and CRAC in Muro de Alcoy, Alicante.

 

Around 300 fans attended at the La Llometa stadium to see CRAC win 28-18 in the Campeonato Nacional de Rugby League.

 

Victorious coach Juan Cotes said, “This was a really hard-fought victory against a strong team. This competition will be very good and I think rugby league in Spain has a great future.”

 

His opposite number  Javi Poveda was equally encouraged, “I think the game was electric,” he noted. “They worked very hard and have improved a lot since the last time we played in a friendly and it's just left for me to congratulate them. The AERL [Asociacion Espanol Rugby League] and RLEF are working well in the organisation of the championship in Spain. It will be very good to see more matches like this.”


“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

Anybody know if this is confirmed ? Tried sending email via Belgium RL site but keeps coming up with error message. If it's being played in Brussels can do it as a day trip but knowing the vagaries of RL . . .

Just tried their website again and attempt to send message via the 'Join Us' option just generates message 'Owner email address not set'.

Thanks to Danny at RLEF for his help.
