Chrudim Rabbitohs RLC beat Hradec Králové 14-4, in the final of the CZRLA pre-season nines which was hosted, in Dolni Dunajovice, by Mikulov Roosters. Six sides took part, in two groups of three including a Hungary XIII side who defeated Hodonín.
The tournament was also part of a match officials training course held by Czech MO educator Lukáš Hergott and trainee Ondřej Preininger, which saw six new level 1 referees qualified.
“The participants were enthusiastic and the majority of them were referees or touch judges at the tournament,” said Hergott. “It’s their first step on very difficult journey but I feel very optimistic. We had some talented learners who could become really good referees.”
