2017 WC Qualifiers talks have begun - uproar already!

6 posts in this topic

It seems the RLEF have already settled on a tentative qualification structure and they have ignored Malta in their plans despite the fact that they themselves feel they are more than eligible.

It's worth signing the petition for the sake of International Rugby League... Let's hope the RLEF get this right.

List of eligible Malta players....

- Jarrod Sammut (Bradford Bulls)
- Danny Galea (Widnes Vikings)
- Shane Shackleton (ex Roosters, Parramatta and Penrith)
- Jon Pepa (Parramatta U20's)
- Andrew Heffernan (Canberra Raiders U20's)
- Jonathan Wallace (London Broncos U19s)
- Pat Galea (Mounties Ron Massey Cup)

Yep, as EastlondonMike said, it's played there. The comp has 4 teams as well.

What exactly are the plans for the 2017 qualifiers? I'm assuming the Malta RL have been told what they are, but i can't find anywhere that explains why Malta wouldn't be involved.

I don't think it's been released to the wider public. Obviously the Maltese RL have been informed though.
