National Team : final on May 12th

European Nations Cup – Division 3 – Group D: Group D’s final will pit Greece against Slovakia on May 12, 2007.

In spite of its defeat 6-0 against Monaco last october, Slovakia qualified itself by winning the game on “tapis vert”. The Slovak had reserves at the end of the match, about the eligibility of Monaco’s players. The Committee of the Regulations having given them reason, Slovakia will play the final against Greece (winner twice of Azerbaijan) in Salonique on May 12, 2007.

The statistics speak for Greece.

Team No W D L Diff. Pts
Greece 2 2 0 0 50 6
Slovakia 1 0 0 1 -6

The game will take place in Thessaloníki, the referee has not been nominated yet. It is in May so please start booking tickets to go and support our team. No excuses you have been informed months ago now.

May is still far, so in order to make our boys ready to fight for us, a friendly game against Cyprus might be on March 24/25. I will let you know as soon I know myself a bit more.

A very exercise for rugby players is rugby 7. Same pitch, almost same rules and 7 players instead of 15. You can believe me if I tell you that 7 on the pitch, you feel like the ground had double its size. Defense holes everywhere… But it good for the vision good for the player…
The Greek National 7’s Team will take part in two European Nations Tournaments:

  • 26 – 27 May in Split – Croatia
  • 9 – 11 June – Georgia

We are expecting also a U18 National Team. More details for that will come later on this year…

    Hi mate, nope no “Greek national jersey”. It is sad to see that even if you have lots of motivated players you can not do much with a “missing” rugby union.
