Article in the English language version of Spanish newspaper El Pais showing how the game is developing rapidly. I sense that Broozer may now start to think about a Paris mini-break.

No plans for Paris, but since I decided to visit my Colombian friend in Spain, things seem to be kicking off in Spain and there are talks of Colombia v Jamaica.

 

I may start taking requests for where people want RL to spring up before I book my next trip!

Best of luck to them. I hope they have a home fixture some point soon (any excuse for me to go to Spain!)

Cheers, will look into that (June being the most awkward month for it to be, what with my friend visiting the UK that month anyway!). I'll check what dates she's over here

SPANISH RUGBY LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP KICKS OFF

 

History was made on Sunday as the first Spanish rugby league championship kicked off with a match between Valencian Warriors and CRAC in Muro de Alcoy, Alicante.

 

Around 300 fans attended at the La Llometa stadium to see CRAC win 28-18 in the Campeonato Nacional de Rugby League.

 

Victorious coach Juan Cotes said, “This was a really hard-fought victory against a strong team. This competition will be very good and I think rugby league in Spain has a great future.”

 

His opposite number  Javi Poveda was equally encouraged, “I think the game was electric,” he noted. “They worked very hard and have improved a lot since the last time we played in a friendly and it's just left for me to congratulate them. The AERL [Asociacion Espanol Rugby League] and RLEF are working well in the organisation of the championship in Spain. It will be very good to see more matches like this.”

Anybody know if this is confirmed ? Tried sending email via Belgium RL site but keeps coming up with error message. If it's being played in Brussels can do it as a day trip but knowing the vagaries of RL . . .

Still no news on kick off time ? Sent a few emails but no answer so looks like I won't be going, as ferries rapidly filling as it's Bank Holiday weekend. Price already over £80 return (travelling at silly times) so will go to HKR-London instead.

The first group of nineteen Spanish referees have received their Level 1 qualification following a three-day visit from RLEF tutor Phil Smith in Valencia. The training course supports the first ever Spanish championship, which kicked off in late March between five clubs.

 

Smith, a member of the RLEF’s first Match Official Development Squad, which was formed in February, said: “The delegates were all players from clubs spread across the region and their passion and commitment for the game shone through. With their know-how of the basics improving they can now go back and help raise standards in their own domestic competition, which is making rapid progress in such a short period of time.”

 

After the course, Smith observed a Spanish Championship match between Irreductibles/CREM and CRAC which the home side won 38-30, with three of the course graduates officiating the first half and Smith refereeing the second.

 

Asociacion Espagna de Rugby League general secretary, Aitor Davilas is pleased with the progress being made by rugby league’s newest nation:

 

“The press in Spain is talking about rugby league more than ever,” he noted. Phil's work has helped everyone become more aware of the sport and of our positive vision as an organization.”

The AERL - Spanish Association of Rugby League - is working hard to promote the sport in the country.  The national team will face Belgium in their first-ever international on May 24th, having taken delivery of the inaugural kit.  A five team competition, already underway, looks as though it will have a sixth side from Valencia in the near future and schools are set to start playing the sport in October.
