  1. Details have been confirmed for the European Championship C decider, which will act as the next stage of qualification for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup for Greece and Norway. The nations will meet at New River Stadium, home of London Skolars on Saturday 18th May (kick off 1pm) as part of a double-header, before the Skolars’ game with Doncaster in Betfred League 1 (kick off 4.30pm). It is the first time the nations have met, with the winners hosting Scotland (2-3 November 2019) and travelling to Russia (9-10 November 2019) in the final European Qualifying tournament for a place in England in 2021. “We are very much looking forward to the match against Greece,” said Norway head coach Dave Hunter. “We’ll be looking at having a few camps and hopefully a game or two in preparation. RLN are very grateful to London Skolars for hosting the match on what will be a great day of rugby league for both countries.” Opposite number Steve Georgallis added: “Everyone involved with rugby league in Greece is very excited about coming to London. Norway surprised Germany to qualify and the domestic players in both countries hold the key to who will win.” He continued: “We will hold a selection game of Athens v Rest of Greece to determine our best home-grown players. Getting to this stage is a great result for all those who have worked tirelessly to make the sport in Greece a success.” According to tournament director Jovan Vujosevic: “This has been the biggest European Championship C competition, involving six nations. Both Greece and Norway have been rewarded for their organic growth and spectators can look forward to a fine, open game”. He added “London Skolars have a great history of cooperation with the RLEF and are genuine supporters of rugby league development.” Hector McNeil, London Skolars’ CEO, commented: “Skolars are very proud to be hosting such a high profile game and World Cup qualifier. With the announcement that Arsenal’s Emirates stadium will be hosting the Rugby League World Cup 2021 semi finals it’s an exciting build up to that.” He added “Haringey and Enfield have very large Greek communities and we are very excited about attracting a large contingent to this match. Hopefully we will end up creating a whole new rugby league fan base. Given Skolars play a league match as the double header those that attend the game are in for a treat.” The Norway v Greece game will take place at 1:00 PM and will act as the curtain raiser for the Betfred League One game between London Skolars and Doncaster RLFC which is scheduled to take place at 4:30 PM. London Skolars will face Doncaster RLFC in what will be their 5th home game of the 2019 campaign. The Skolars look forward to hosting Doncaster at the New River Stadium in what looks to be a captivating affair. London Skolars are excited about hosting the double header at their home stadium and are looking forward to the new Rugby League season as well as being part of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup journey. Watch both games for the price of one! Double header tickets details: Early Bird Offer (up to end of March): Adults £12 and Concessions £6 From April 1st onwards: Adults £15 and Concessions £10 Throughout the whole period: U11’s £3 and U5’s Free Tickets for this event are now on sales on Eventbrite: Facebook event:
  2. that's what i thought. however the only thing against that is that he had a bulls shirt which he would struggle to see on tv so must have been somewhat into it?
  3. yes it is a random post but for me the strange thing is not they are minor celebs (tbh) I've never watched gogglebox but i am interested in medial cannabis and autism so watched it. the strange thing for me was the fact they are very posh southerners & from watching the programme there was no obvious angle.
  4. I watched the programme about their son and how cannabis might help him. interesting story. fun part was he's obviously a RL fan. During the programme he wore a series of football but mostly RL shirts. Bulls, Huddersfield, Catalan, Rhinos all on show. Wonder how he got into that?
  5. Great to see all of these RL legends in one place at the Annual Capital Challenge. Skolars put up a good fight against a Wigan team with plenty of first team experience and 2 French Internationals. Losing 34 - 6. Corporates and crowd best yet. Roll on Broncos in the London Clash next Friday at New River
  6. The skolars name will most likely stay with the junior teams and maybe an open age team. similar to what wasps saracens etc did
  7. A great article!

  10. London Skolars are pleased to announce the signing of Australian full back Joseph Burchell on a one-year deal. The 22-year-old will now link up with the team for pre-season training in preparation for the 2019 Betfred League 1 season. Jermaine Coleman, London Skolars’ Head Coach, commented: “We are excited to have Joseph on board. He’s a tall, strong, athletic young man who will pose threat on the edge or coming in the line from full back. We’re looking forward to seeing how he develops over the course of the season.” Hector McNeil, London Skolars’ CEO, added: “Joseph should add a real threat for us at the back. He is our fourth new recruit and the squad is building very nicely for us to take on the best next year.” Burchell has experience at the highest level having spent the past four seasons with the likes of NRL side Canterbury Bulldogs as well as Queensland Cup clubs Wynnum Manly Seagulls, Northern Pride and Souths Logan Magpies. He played for the Queensland Maroons under-18s State of Origin team in 2014, which was coach by current South Sydney Rabbitohs Head Coach Anthony Seibold. Burchell said: “I’m delighted to have joined London Skolars for the 2019 season. I can’t wait to join the lads for preseason training and show the English game what I have to offer.”

    i think a lot of malaise crept into the game this year. Superleague & CCF especially. i think that carried over here. weird tho as this england team led by Bennett is one of the best ive seen and full of confidence. hope it puts some umph into SuperLeague next season.
