The Basque area of Spain is potentially a great place to promote RL. Look at Catalans. Don't make same error the  RLWC14 did with USA and Italy by replacing their players with Australians. The game goes nowhere otherwise.

Still no news on kick off time ? Sent a few emails but no answer so looks like I won't be going, as ferries rapidly filling as it's Bank Holiday weekend. Price already over £80 return (travelling at silly times) so will go to HKR-London instead.

The first group of nineteen Spanish referees have received their Level 1 qualification following a three-day visit from RLEF tutor Phil Smith in Valencia. The training course supports the first ever Spanish championship, which kicked off in late March between five clubs.

 

Smith, a member of the RLEF’s first Match Official Development Squad, which was formed in February, said: “The delegates were all players from clubs spread across the region and their passion and commitment for the game shone through. With their know-how of the basics improving they can now go back and help raise standards in their own domestic competition, which is making rapid progress in such a short period of time.”

 

After the course, Smith observed a Spanish Championship match between Irreductibles/CREM and CRAC which the home side won 38-30, with three of the course graduates officiating the first half and Smith refereeing the second.

 

Asociacion Espagna de Rugby League general secretary, Aitor Davilas is pleased with the progress being made by rugby league’s newest nation:

 

“The press in Spain is talking about rugby league more than ever,” he noted. Phil's work has helped everyone become more aware of the sport and of our positive vision as an organization.”

The AERL - Spanish Association of Rugby League - is working hard to promote the sport in the country.  The national team will face Belgium in their first-ever international on May 24th, having taken delivery of the inaugural kit.  A five team competition, already underway, looks as though it will have a sixth side from Valencia in the near future and schools are set to start playing the sport in October.

Got mine ordered. I don't think they take web payments either. My friend that ordered them for me got an invoice and had to do a bank transfer!

 

Hopefully they'll be delivered within the next week or I'll have to get them shipped over after I'm back

6th of May is a Wednesday and 6th of June a Saturday. So thats why I say June, rather than May. Will try and get confirmation from the Spanish.

I don't think it's quite reached that far south yet, the closest would probably be CRAC in Muro de Alcoy, about an hour north of Alicante.

Cheers Homer, I have family over there so it would be nice to take a few games in whenever I visit........and escape from the Real/Barca monopoly now and again.

I believe 2 teams are in Madrid- Griffins and Custodians. Custodians being the latest club to join I think.  Crac,  as Homer said are based around 70km north of  Alicante at Muro d'Alcoi with then the rest based in and around Valencia (Warriors, Terrent, Irreductibles). They have a few 9s comps going on and are mainly Spanish guys rather than just Ex pats playing a game.

Custodians look to be a police team.  Having lived here since August, there's an utterly amazing 3G rugby pitch out by the motorway, not a million miles away from the universities.  I can only hope one of the teams is basing themselves over there.
