These last 2 games (Switzerland play Poland in 2 weeks) have a strange feel to them as the winners and relegated teams have already been decided, as has fifth place. Positions 2 to 4 are up for grabs and although this doesn't sound that exciting, finishing in the top part of the table will be very satisfying for Poland and Switzerland. However, Judging their progress is difficult due to some other teams falling away. Poland have a few players missing. The flanker Nowicki is staying with Macon in France who are pushing for promotion to ProD2. There are also injuries to Poland 's 140kg Georgian born prop who will be badly missed. Also out are their best back Reksulak, lock Perczak who played well in Moldova and the French based hooker Bobryk. There are some debutants on the bench as well as a French born hooker Michalak in a small return to the Thomas Putra era. Apparently he is the cousin of the better known French international fly half.

The game will be played in a brand new football stadium and the Polish Rugby Union will be hoping for a record crowd. Lodz is one of the best centres of rugby in the country along with the Tri-city area around Gdansk.

We have seen real thriller on arena. Dutch won first half and seems that they crush us in second. Fortunately in second, we more attacked and our determination was rewarded. Final score 14-13.

Thanks. nice highlights with some very good quality tries. This follows on from the dramatic encounter last year in Amsterdam. These two teams are starting to get a close game rivalry! :D
The Polish will be happy the winger was part of the drive :D

Polter, it looks like the Georgian prop was definitely missed although also the Dutch seem to have muscled up up front when they used to be a bit of a soft touch there.

I don't understand the final penalty either. The only thing I can think of is he penalised the Dutch player for not releasing when tackled, which was erroneous as he wasn't held.

that being said it looked like the Dutch had opportunities to win which they threw away quite literally. And the last ditch tackle to deny the Dutch player was of course also a big moment. I also want to say it looked like the Dutch kicker was pretty casual with the conversion attempt after his team's first try. Every point counts!

BTW, yes, nice crowd and atmosphere. I was in Lodz last November. Interesting city - lots of parks and very big textile manufacturing center in the past (now the impressive Manufaktura Shopping Center). A pity there were no games on when I was there. Hopefully they'll do more in Lodz after the success of this game. Does anyone know the crowd number?

Poland had a very good game in defense especially the young centre Szczepański who put in a Thierry Dusautoir shift in. The scrums were a problem and highlighted a lack of strength in depth at prop.

The crowd was 8,100 which I believe is a record.

Onto Warsaw for the next game against the Swiss and a chance to come second in the group.

A small historic connection between the two teams comes in the form of a black and white highlights clip on YouTube of the last time Poland played France in 1990. The French team contained Blanco, Saint Andre, Camberabero and a recently naturalised South African flanker called Eric Melville who is now one of the Swiss coaches.
