2021 Rugby League World Cup Qualifiers set to get underway in Euro C - North


Date: 5/6/18

Qualifying for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England begins in the Czech Republic in mid-June, with the start of European Championship C. Six nations, split into North and South groups will take part, with a play off between the respective winners taking them into the next phase in 2019.
The North group, featuring the Czech Republic, Germany and Norway, will see old rivalries resumed but all three nations are part of World Cup qualifying for the first time, something that all see as providing stimulation for further growth.

The matches open with the Czech Republic taking on Norway on 16 June. It will be the fourth time the nations have met, the Norwegians leading 2-1, including a 30-26 win last October in Krupka.

“For us to be taking part in World Cup qualifying is a dream come true,” says Lukas Hergott, president of the Czech Rugby League Association, the oldest of the three governing bodies. “We are a grassroots organization who have had to grow the sport organically with it being something totally new here, so the feeling of pride in seeing our name in these games is massive and makes all the hard work that goes in worthwhile.

“We hope to use the publicity generated from this campaign to promote our marvellous sport to a much wider audience of potential players, sponsors and fans. It should also give us a boost in obtaining official recognition from the Czech Sports and Olympic Association.“

Rugby League Norge president, Lee Johnson, has overseen a steady increase in the number of clubs and players and is sure that participation in this competition will trigger even more interest. “Taking part in the qualifiers is a great privilege for RLN,” he notes. “Although we have been only playing the game for the last ten years, we have seen our domestic competition get stronger and young players get better, and tournaments like this keep them hungry for more.

“The publicity RLN will get from playing these games will inspire the next generation, we will have a lot of new players in our squad after what has been our hardest selection camp to date.”

Germany make their bow in August and will be avidly looking at how their opponents perform in two weeks’ time. Restructuring has meant that they have not participated in official competition for five years and haven’t played the Czech Republic since 2010 and Norway since 2011. Their focus has been on building the BundesLeague competition, but now there is an opportunity for the best players to test themselves.

“The European Championship C matches are steps on the road back for us after we decided to completely rebuild in 2013,” comments Nationaler Rugby League Deutschland president Bob Doughton. “We are using the games to help solidify our domestic competition and we have reiterated to our players that all places in our national team are up for grabs. At this stage we are not contemplating what benefits progressing in the tournament could bring. We have to overcome the significant challenges of playing against the Czech Republic and Norway first and that is where our focus lies.”

Date: 26/8/18

Germany put themselves in pole position for the next phase of 2021 World Cup qualification, with a stunning win over the Czech Republic in Osnabruck, to head the European Championship C – North table.
If they take a point from Norway in Porsgrunn next month, they will face the winners of the Southern section in the next round of WC games.

Bob Doughton, president of German rugby league and co-coach of the national side commented: “It was a very tough, we had to work really hard to break down the Czech’s.”

“There was some impatience in our build up, but we now move on to Norway and it come could down to point’s difference.”

Skipper Brad Billsborough was the star, scoring one try, setting up two others and landing four goals for half his side’s points.

It took 32 minutes for the deadlock to be broken but not before each side had made clear cut chances, Germany spurning three opportunities with the last pass going begging and the visitors twice denied.

On two occasions early on the hosts created an overlap, but right winger Jannek Hagenah couldn’t reel in the scoring ball and, in the 25th minute, he was again given space out wide again but this time the Czech cover came across to bundle him in to touch.

The bigger visiting forwards looked to plough a furrow up the middle but brave German defence held them up.

Just after the half hour, Billsborough’s guile sent full back Ben Dent over for the opening try, Billsborugh goaling and missing with a drop goal attempt in the 37th minute trying to establish a two-score lead.

Billsborough took matters into his own hands five minutes after the break with a delightful try, eluding the first line of Czech defence and showing an outrageous dummy to go over, and landing the extras.

A ball steal in front of their own posts on the hour saw the Czech’s penalised and Billsborough slotted over the goal to make it 14-0 as torrential rain began to fall.

In the greasy conditions, twice the Czech’s spilt the ball coming out of their own 20, prop Connor Hampson plunging over out wide for the Germans as they capitalised.

With ten minutes to go, Oldřich Chrbolka scrambled over in the corner for the visitors to give them hope, Tomáš Řičica wide with the conversion attempt, but Germany sealed a fantastic win when Billsborough’s brilliant cut out pass sent Westfalen Warriors’ George Wood over, Billsborough goaling.

Doughton added: “Brad is 20 and we made him captain because he is a leader and has a mature head to guide the team around the field, but I was also so impressed with Phil Hunz who is only in his second season and filled in for us at loose forward where he has never played before, he was tremendous.”

Czech head coach Ladislav Cintler noted: “The game was very even but Germany made less mistakes than us,” he said. “We are getting better every year but we can improve and play smarter.”

Wolverines path to the 2021 Rugby League World Cup Announced



Details have been confirmed for the 2018 Americas Championship, that will act as a qualifier for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

Canada’s Wolverines will face Jamaica first up in an attempt to qualify for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England, while the USA will take on newcomers Chile, the first South American representatives.

The nations will meet at the University of North Florida Stadium, Jacksonville on 13th November, with the winners progressing to face either USA or Chile, at the same venue four days later.

The victors in that match will go through to the World Cup, with the losers having the opportunity to progress through a repechage in 2019.

Newly elected Canada Rugby League Association (CRLA) President, Bob Jowett, commented: “The America’s qualifying tournament offers the opportunity to showcase the sport of rugby league across the continent, with the added excitement of having a South American nation involved for the first time.

“The CRLA is providing the Wolverines with every support, as qualification for the 2021 World Cup would give a huge boost to the visibility of the work being done across the country.”

There are currently three provincial organizations running competitions. In British Columbia, and Ontario, Brantford Broncos and Vancouver Dragons have been crowned respective champions, whilst the Alberta season is just getting underway

The Wolverines coaching staff are in the process of finalizing an extended ‘train-on’ squad for the qualifiers which will be announced in early October.

“The exciting and successful introduction of professional side Toronto Wolfpack in the European Super League has kindled an increased interest in rugby league in Canada,” Jowett added. “The national team now taking the field in such prestigious matches will give us further opportunities to increase profile and participation.

The CRLA has set up a Supporters Club to support the Wolverines in their quest to play in the 2021 Rugby League World Cup. Join before September 29 and you will be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Jacksonville including Flights, Accommodation and Game Tickets to catch the Wolverines in a Rugby League World Cup Qualifying match on November 17. Anyone interested in signing up, or in sponsorship opportunities, should visit the CRLA website.”

My Idea of a Post World Cup Calendar 2022-2024. Only for the harcore internationalist fans otherwise dont waste your time reading.

All teams who qualify for quarter finals are automatic qualification for World Cup 2025

For e.g
Australia
NZ
England
Tonga
Fiji
Samoa
Wales
France

These top 4 teams will play each other twice within the 2 year window, while lower 4 teams play top 4 once within the 2 years and each other twice by the end of 2023 to determine who will be given a top 4 and bottom 4 seeding


2022 Calendar

Mid Year June Tests (Rep Weekend)

Northern Hemisphere

England V France (one game)
Wales v Ireland (Friendly)

Southern Hemisphere

NZ v Tonga (1st of 2)
Samoa v Fiji (1st of 2)
End of Year Calendar - 4 week cycle

Northern Hemisphere

Week 1

NZ v France (one game)
England v Wales (one game)

Week 2

NZ v England 1st Test (not counted)
France v Wales (1st of 2)

Week 3

NZ v Wales midweek (one game)
NZ v England 2nd Test (not counted)

Week 4
NZ v England 3rd Test (not counted)

Southern Hemisphere

Week 1

Aus v Samoa (one game)
Tonga v Fiji (one game)

Week 2

Samoa v Tonga (one game)
Aus v Fiji (one game)

Week 3

Aus v Tonga (1st of 2)
Samoa v Fiji (2nd of 2)

2023 Season

Mid Season - Rep Weekend

Northern Hemisphere

England v Wales (one game)
France v Ireland (friendly)

Southern Hemisphere

NZ v Samoa (one game)
Tonga v Fiji (one game)

End of Year - England, France, Wales Tour NZ & Australia 6 week Cycle

Week 1

England V Tonga (1st of 2)
Australia v NZ (1st of 2)
France v Samoa (1st of 2)
Wales v Fiji (1st of 2)

Week 2

England V Australia (1st of 2)
NZ v Tonga (2nd of 2)
Samoa v Wales (1st of 2)
France v Fiji (1st of 2)

Week 3

England V NZ (1st of 2)
Aus v Tonga (2nd of 2)
France v Samoa (2nd of 2)
Wales v Fiji (2nd of 2)

Week 4

England v Tonga (2nd of 2)
Australia v NZ (2nd of 2)
Samoa v Wales (2nd of 2)
France v Fiji (2nd of 2)

Week 5
NZ v England (2nd of 2)
Aus v Wales (one game)
Tonga v France (one game)

Week 6
Tonga v Wales (one game)
Aus V England (2nd of 2)

By the end of 2 years you would have 37 games between the top 8 all providing high quality matches and can book them as double headers if needs be. I think every nation gets a good bit of experience.

Great effort, that’s taken some time. I think you need to get a girlfriend though

This man is my hero ...

Big blow outs can take place in semis or quarters eg Aust vs Fiji, so important to have the big four ... Aust, England; Tonga and NZ hopefully playing in the semis. With Tonga coming on gives a minimum of Four decent sides, rather than the usual 3. I’d love to see France returning back to their glory days!

The venues for the finals are announced ina little over 12 hours time, 9.00 GMT


Host towns and cities will discover if they will be welcoming the Rugby League World Cup 2021.


In October and November 2021, England will host the biggest ever Rugby League World Cup with the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments running simultaneously.

Over the last 12 months, towns and cities have been bidding to win the right to play host to the prestigious tournament, and on Tuesday 29th January, the world will discover which bids have been successful.

The Rugby League World Cup 2021 host announcement will be broadcast at 9am (GMT) on BBC Sport Online.

Host Helen Skelton will be joined by RLWC2021 Ambassadors; Kevin Sinfield; St. Helens and England Women’s star, Jodie Cunningham; and Leeds Rhinos Wheelchair captain, James Simpson, to reveal the successful towns and cities.

Jon Dutton, RLWC2021 Chief Executive, commented:

“We have undertaken a thorough bid process, lasting twelve months and involving some very tough decisions. The quality of bids has been impressive across all three tournaments and we are now ready to share the venue details as we continue to build awareness and excitement.

I look forward to congratulating those that have been successful and working with those local communities over the next 1,000 days to stage an incredibly inclusive and welcoming tournament. We appreciate some people will be disappointed that their town / city hasn’t made the final list, but the tournament will be very accessible with marquee moments to look forward to.

Too fiddly to post the full list of venues on my phone while I am at work, but interestingly the opening ceremony is at St James Park Newcastle. Reward for running a good event and getting good crowds at a few Magic Weekends

Also that the RFL probably think NE England is an expansion area worth persevering with, the amateur game is getting stronger there all the time and Newcastle semi pro team are improving

Sounds like a sensible idea. Great part of the UK. Graduated from Newcastle many moons ago. I hope expansion from there is on the cards.

Sounds like a sensible idea. Great part of the UK. Graduated from Newcastle many moons ago. I hope expansion from there is on the cards.
