Jamaica 28 Canada 14
Not only their first home game but first win in this comp too I think.
Fantastic news for the Jamaicans, fingers crossed it leads to more home fixtures.
Also for the Latin American Championships it's been moved from the capital Santiago to Los Angeles in Chile due to the Chilean general elections.
If anyone knows anything about ANY teams touring Australia looking for games please let me know.
Samoa v Country u23s - 13th October - McDonald Park, Wagga Wagga
Scotland v Country u23s - 20th October - Kingsford Smith Park, Ballina
In a boost for fans outside the Riverina and North Coast, both matches will be live streamed courtesy of WaggaWagga.TV (Samoa) and Bar TV Sports (Scotland).
Wish I was home to see Scotland. My house is 200m from Kingsford Smith.
Talk of Greece entering Balkans cup with a full domestic national team for the first time.
Will add Balkans Cup games when i see confirmed fixtures with dates
So there were reported plans of an Italy v Scotland game for September 2, this seems to have never happened.
Malta have just announced 2 games vs Italy and Hungary for October, both in Sydney. Unfortunately the Malta team seems to have minimal activity at home.
The same article also mentioned Italy would be playing Greece the week before. It would not surprise if Hungary have another game or 2 in Sydney.
So Italy seems to have 2 warm up matches for the WC.
I think you'll find the Greece v Italy match fell through so the Italians are now playing the Maltese instead.
Holland 28 d Sweden 24
Fiji 22 Canada 6.
France vs Jamaica in October, can anyone tell me if this article is saying it will be live on French TV or if it will be a live internet stream?
Hong Kong V Japan announced
Malta v Italy and Malta v Hungary
^ Are they proper internationals though?
Ahhh. A can of worms?
Proper by what standard? I expect they'll be played under international eligibility rules for ranking points.. despite featuring few if any domestic players.
Zero domestic players, let's not kid ourselves here. By 'proper' I mean RLIF-sanctioned internationals. I heard they were tightening the rules up a bit, I guess it hasn't happened though if these Aussie-fests played in Sydney still get full Test match status.
Why wouldn't it be RLIF-sanctioned?
If it's played under their own eligibility rules there's no reason it wouldn't be.
And how or why would they tighten the rules? It would go against every current trend and motivation they have.
