So what are your predictions for this weekends games?

Timisoara Saracens v Rugby Petrarca, Dan Paltinisanu Stadium (15.00)
Femi-CZ Rugby Rovigo v RC Batumi, Stadio Mario Battaglini (15.00)
Heidelberger RK v Pataro Rugby Calvisano, Sportzentrum Süd (15.00)
Rugby Viadana v CDUL, Stadio Pier Luigi Zaffanella (15.00)

I think it will be home wins for Rovigo, Heidelberg and Viadana and an away win for Petrarca.

I'm really hope I'm wrong though and we see wins for Timisoara and Batumi

I expect a win by Timisoara and three italian wins in the other matches. All interesting games, anyway. Unfortunately, no one streaming live has been discovered

Timisoara is in a really bad form, I don't expect them to do well.

I would consider Rovigo as favorites against RC Batumi. They have home field advantage and more experience at this level, although I expect RC Batumi to fight till the end.

Great.How difficult can it be to set up a live stream? Both Batumi home games will be televised.

Maybe it's not just a matter of difficulty, italian "Rugby Channel" shows live all the matches of Eccellenza (national championship) and Rovigo by itself since many years records its own matches and shows them deferred on local tv, so certainly there would have been not technical difficulties to show these games. I suspect an impasse with EPCR, maybe the board has not conceded the right to show free the games. Or maybe they concede the right only if you transmit the match on tv and not just on youtube. I don't know...

RC Batumi's Facebook page says something about a livestream, could we get a translation?

They will show live the game from Rovigo in their facebook page, and they ask to forgive possible difficulties in the transmission because the internet signal at Battaglini stadium is not strong. A bit of shame for us italians: the georgians took the task to show the game at our home and they also complain for the internet quality :oops:

Thanks Sammo

I wonder what quality stream. If internet signal is not strong at the stadium, then the image will probably be freezing every 10 seconds or so. I hope I`m wrong .
