relatively new team as far as I know, no previous

 

I think they have been in Conference League South for a season or two now, definitely remember seeing the name somewhere last season

Hope it's a good game and it gets a decent turnout.

I hope it gets the support Wales deserve too. I've been a regular at their games and its good to see the spirit that John Kear has brought back to the squad. Not only that the whole feeling from the players to the backroom staff is positive... and they really appreciate the support. When we went to Albi the players and the management took time to come and say thanks to the fans for travelling.

 

So I've got Llanelli booked into my diary... just waiting for the time, date and venue for the Italian game to start booking flights for the fans from North Wales.

How good would it be to have Serbia in the World Cup. Here's hoping they do the business over Wakes

 

Not familiar with Wakes :) All joking aside I hope it will be a good crowd for the game but I want Wales to win and go on to the World Cup, travelling up from Cornwall for the game.

 

Hopefully will go to the game in Italy aswell but if the venue is not announced soon then that will not happen.

There is absolutely no chance of that.  None whatsoever.

 

Their Rugby League is like watching enthusiastic beginners, many of whom have only recently picked up a ball.

 

Wales - if they really needed to - could probably dredge up 13 full time professionals.  As it is, a mix of Crusaders/Scorpions players will be more than enough to skittle the Serbs.

 

I would love the Serbs to do well, however anything other than a hammering would count as a major upset.

What will it take for them to get to the next level? Is it just a case of waiting as playing numbers continue to increase or will they remain at that level until there is a professional environment for their better players to develope? Unfortunately that won't happen until either Serbia join the EU or somehow a Belgrade club is entered somewhere in the professional leagues.

If, and it's a big IF, Serbia recruit the three or four qualified NRL players and the best of the heritage players who played against the Phillipines, then it could be a different matter.

Trbojevic!

Trbojevic!

They've got 3/4 NRL contracted players they can call on and there's Stefan Ratchford as well.

Let's say they can call on 10 semi pro/pro heritage players and Wales then have to be ready for them.

I'd say Wales still but not as comfortable as some think.

To an extent Serbia's meeting with Wales is their least important WC game. If they can get past Italy then they should have a real chance of qualifying in the Play Off against either Spain or Russia.

If they can get the Trbojevic brothers over then they'd possibly be the best players on the pitch - how much their heritage means to them is another matter though. Think Ratchford denied on twitter that he was eligible for Serbia.

Isn't the qualifying rule for Serbia that you qualify for them if your parents/grandparents were born anywhere in the former Yugoslavia.

 

No idea, but the likelihood of him playing has to be pretty low if he denies he's eligible.
