A senegalese named Cherokee is the new coach of the turkish national team. Quite unusual

How come the Rugby Europe games have ended so early? I haven't seen a Georgia - Romania game or a Russia - Germany game. Could somebody please clarify this for me. Thankyou.

Bro, please google something like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Rugb ... ampionship

Answer: bye-week

Edit: or even better: join the tipping competition. No better way to be up to date with the matches coming up the next weekend :D

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Sorry, I fail to understand why people in general tend to ask long questions, that a really simple google search would reveal to them within seconds.

But the tipping competition is indeed a great way to stay up-to-date. I really recommend it to everyone.

Isn't there a promotion/relegation playoff between the lower divisions, or only the championship and the trophy?

It does look like there should be some play-offs; e.g. for REIC & RWCQ

- 1st Conference 1 North or South V 1st Conference 1 South or North: 20th May 2017 - probably Czech Rep v Malta is supposed to be 20th May

and for RWCQ: Winner Conference 2 North or South V Winner Conference South or North - Bosnia & H v (probably )Hungary

The winners should meet the following weekend for RWCQ playoff, and then in November against the winner of the Trophy

See http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/reic-promotio ... ing-rounds

At least that is what it looks like!

There will be play-offs in some conferences, for example, last one in REC vs the first in RETrophy, and two winners of Conference 1 - South and North (Czech Rep. and Malta - this will ALSO be a RWC qualifying match) will play for ONE place in RETrophy, but no play-offs in conference 2, the winners are directly promoted to conference 1, BUT there will be a RWC qualifiers between those two winners. I hope this helps at all :D

What about the Development competition? Will the winner automatically be in Conference 2 next year (presumably in place of Turkey)?

I think so it is

- - -

Tomorrow... in central Europe time
13.00 (C2 n) Finland v Hungary http://www.rugbyeurope.tv
14.00 (C1 s) Cyprus v Croatia
15.00 (C2 n) Sweden Lithuania
15.00 (C2 n) Norway v Estonia http://www.rugbyeurope.tv
16.00 (C1 n) Luxembourg v Czech Rep. http://www.rugbyeurope.tv

- Hungary need two points to win the pool and get promoted to conference I and to the RWCQ next step
- Cyprus need a victory to overcome Andorra and avoid relegation
- Sweden need one point to be sure to avoid relegation, Lithuania need a bp-victory to hope in an unlikely first place
- Norway and Estonia have not special aims: the relegation spot should be assured to Turkey
- Luxembourg need a bp-victory to hope to avoid relegation, the czechs need just one point to be sure to win the pool

winner Czech/Malt v winner Hung/Bosn


Weird that the winner of Czech/Malta will have 1 week to organize and promote a key home match. I can't see a reason why this match is not n June.

The playoff involving Portugal against the Conference 1 champions will be in November, right?

Rugby Europe published the REC 2018 calendar
http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/competitions/ ... mpionships

Maybe it's just me but the barrage Portugal v Belgium isn't still to be played?
They put Belgium in Championship and Portugal in Trophy

PS: ok, I've seen now on wikipedia. The barrage has been played in may and Belgium won. I totally missed (or forgot) it, I thought they were going to play it in september

Great! So it's only the development fixtures to be confirmed from what I could see at a glance.

Other question: Portugal play Czech Republic on Novemeber 18th in pool play. Will this also double as their world cup qualifier I wonder?

Gibraltar secure great international fixtures against Hungary (in Hungary in October, and in Gibraltar in February) and home games against Finland in March and the UAE in April
