Euro XIII


Recommended Posts


Doubt we'll ever see this league get off the ground. Was going to tough even pre covid. Everything has gone completely quiet and the Rugby League Europe propaganda machine (podcast) seems to be no more. 

I do hope we see some sort of officially sanctioned, properly funded Europe wide development competition at some point though. It would need to include teams only in developing countries and not teams in England

On paper this looked a good idea just the wrong timing with Covid happening and all.

 

Its a shame if all these clubs want to continue that the RFL cannot step in somehow and see over a sustainable time how these clubs can continue to develop and expand the game.

 

Good to see the Dutch League still going

Good to see the sixth team in this year Yanto. Why did the Griffins only play 5 games though? 

Griffins hosted the first event.Took some heavy beatings and decided to pull out of the competition with a view of re grouping next season.

9s is a different game to full 13 and some teams are not suited to the shorter version.

So as the first draft is supposed to be happening now in Brisbane, can we officially pronounce this dead? 

Been gone since the first postponement really. There was plenty of interest in it however from across Europe so clearly there exists a strong appetite for international RL. Hopefully that can now be harnessed to support the official Eurpoean 9s competition this summer.

It’s a big shame but understandable given the circumstances. Would love to see it resurrected at some point.

The ERLF 9s is the way forward, at least for 2022 whilst Leagues get properly up and runing again. It is a very sensible idea and if the stars align (I can get time off work) I hope to attend. Lots of growth to come in Europe over the next few years if we get it right, the seeds are there.

Is the 9s not 2023?
