Do you think these Spanish guys would be interested in taking over at the RFL?

 I thought Spain played well against what looked like a physically bigger team.

Spain beat Italy B 36-24 in Alicante ahead of their Euro Champs C campaign, in front of over 1000 I think (my Spanish is appalling though).

1,200 according to the match report, so pretty good. A very enthusiatic crowd by the sound of it.

Wow, that is a fantastic crowd.  I know that this is an international fixture which will no doubt pull much more of a crowd but this must show some potential for the game in the country.  What is the domestic scene like?  Any possibility of a (north eastern) team entering the french league ala Toulouse entering Championship 1?

For now, spanish clubs only play an handfull of matchs a season (6+2) (see next season schedule). It's rather hard to imagine any one of them making the jump to a 20+ games season.

 

Although, I'd love to see the spanish and italian game developed to the point we could ditch the RFL for good (worst partner ever), we are probably decades away, if ever.

Spain beat Malta 40-30 in the first game of the Euro Champs C in Valencia (winner progresses to the next stage of the world cup qualifiers). They led all game as well so good result for the Spanish who have made great strides.

Depending on whether Greece use purely domestic players you'd think this result puts Spain in the driving seat in Group C.

It'll be interesting to see what effect this has on Spain's ranking at the end of this month. They are starting from a very low base and have only beaten teams in the same range as them so they may not get much of a bump. Norway and Lebanon could also consolidate above them and Sth Africa could jump them with a 2-0 series win over Lebanon.

I was disappointed Spain did not come under the "learner nations" grouping at least in this funding program.

 

Five Full Members – England (RFL), France (FFRXIII), Ireland (RLI), Scotland (SRL) and Wales (WRL) – assumed roles as ‘senior leaders’ of five regional clusters. They oversaw the work of and mentored five RLEF ‘leader’ graduates from the complementary Governance Foundation Project (2012-13) – Netherlands (NRLB), Germany (RLD), Latvia (LRL), Czech Republic (CZRLA) and Italy (FIRL) – who in turn acted as mentors to a tranche of ‘learner’ nations – Poland (PRXIII), Belgium (BRLA), Malta (MRL), Denmark (DRLF), Hungary (HRLF), Sweden (SWRL) and Greece (HFRL).

Were Spain really even around at the beginning of the project?

What would Spain have to learn from Ireland and Scotland apart from genealogy?

Your right, but funding from the European Commission would have been the main attraction.
