it should be Scotland but Serbia's squad includes 14 heritage players from Australia and there is no Danny Brough for Scotland. Could be much closer than expected, Ireland will be too strong for Spain, a rout appears inevitable.

If they are disadvantaged, they only have themselves to blame. They have already blown two chances to qualify, and at the World Cup a group of them were more interested in drinking, than playing for the shirt.

MATCH OFFICIALS AND STREAMING DETAILS ANNOUNCED FOR RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP EUROPEAN QUALIFIERS
 
Match Officials from nine European nations will take charge of the six final European World Cup qualification games that begin this weekend, with representation from England, Scotland, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Italy, Ukraine, Serbia and Ireland. 
 
RLEF general manager Chris Thair noted: “We have full-time Super League officials mixing with the best from other nations across Europe. We are particularly pleased that they have been appointed from such a wide variety of countries, it reflects well on our member federations, the officials themselves and the RLEF match official technical programme led by Tom Mather.”
 
Thair continued: “The Erasmus grant awarded to the RLEF from the European Union in recent years has been of great benefit to qualifying more officials from across the continent, and we have long term plans for continuing this vital work that helps underpin all of our development.”
 
The appointments have been made by the RLEF Match Official Panel which is independently chaired by David Butler and involves the head of match officials in England, Steve Ganson, France’s Mohammad Drizza and Mather.

Scotland 28-0 up after 11 minutes!

Now 44-0 after 23 minutes. On a park pitch in Glasgow. It’s hard to find the positives, really.

It's 12-2 - I don't think the score on YouTube updated after the conversion.

Certainly proving good for my spanish vocab this game. Placado = tackled, knock on = knock on (!), melé is scrum.

Scotland 86-0 Serbia is a full-time score.

Spain 2 Ireland 12 HT

Both sides have knocked on near the line. Spain getting plenty of good possession, not out of it by any means.

Are Italy likely to have a stack of Aussies? This Spanish side doesn't look too far behind Ireland, you'd think they could qualify for the WC if they're playing a domestic based Italy team.

Don't think the French referee will be too bothered by the crowd shouting.

Few France-based players in the squad?
