32 (27) Sweden 1.00

33 (32) Hungary 1.00

34 (33) Morocco 0.00

 

No change at the top.  At the bottom, most go down as Spain, Belgium and Greece emerge.

 

In future, I suspect the range of positions between the Scandinavian nations will decrease (Norway 19 to Sweden in 32) as the number of domestic clubs reaches parity.  Norway set the standard, but Sweden and Denmark are becoming gradually more professional.  

 

Skåne Crusaders (Sweden) might well be the strongest club in the Scandinavia(it is hard to tell), but the Sweden national team are slightly weaker than them.  In contrast, the Danish national team are far stronger than the most successful Danish club team, Copenhagen RLFC.
