Found out a bit more. Aounallah is apparently still part of the planning for Marseille, as well as Ducau. Brechenmacher has torn his ACL and is out. Dembele apparently is about to make a comeback after his injury, but no idea if he will be ready for November. I personally doubt it.

There were apparently talks with Hicks, but the usual English qualified problem kicks in. If he plays for Germany he is not an English qualified player anymore and therefore he risks his job. What a shame.

I've seen some pictures of last practice and it really looked like those guys were actually there, so it is good to see that we can take German nominations serious again.

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.

Woah, those are (mostly) good refs. The refs Canada (and I'm sure most of these teams) usually get are the also rans; It'll be nice to have high quality officiating.

Also an interesting choice about assistant refs. Joy Neville and Sara Cox are female hopeful refs. Good choices.

I saw Joy ref a Pro 14 game not long ago. Players tend to be more respectful to female refs from what I've seen.

So for that game Germany has selected the following to join a training camp...

BSC Offenbach: Winston Cameron-Dow
Heidelberger RK: Jörn Schröder, Dash Barber, Sean Armstrong, Steffen Liebig, Niklas Hohl, Felix Lammers
RG Heidelberg: Robin Plümpe
RK Heusenstamm: Tim Biniak
RSV Köln: Morne Laubscher
SC Frankfurt 1880: Marcel Becker, Jens Listmann, Michael Poppmeier, Emil Rupf, Marcel Henn, Raynor Parkinson, Samy Füchsel
SC Neuenheim: Oliver Paine
TSV Handschuhsheim: Jaco Otto, Marcus Bender, Paul Schüle, Felix Martel, Nikolai Klewinghaus, Marcel Coetzee, Eden Syme, Sebastian Kössler, Rob May
TSV 1846 Nürnberg: Onisimo Nayato Seremaia
TV Pforzheim: Carlos Soteras-Merz
Aberdeen Wanderers RFC (SCO): Matthias Schösser
Bridgend Ravens RFC (WAL): Jonathon Dawe, Jamie Murphy
CA Lannemezan (FRA): Mathieu Ducau
Rotherham Titans RC (ENG): Anthony Dickinson
Sheffield RUFC (ENG): Kain Rix
SO Chambery (FRA): Sebastian Ferreira
Stade Dijonais (FRA): Harris Aounallah
Stade Rochelais (FRA): Eric Marks
Vereinslos: Kurt Haupt


Now it does look a bit more complete, Oltmann, Els and Schulte (who I believe is injured and may not be able to play the Repechage) missing, and as many 7s players will also be observed recently promoted to 2.Bl team, Nürnberg, has now a representative too. No surprises.

I do not understand how our union claim to have money issues yet World Rugby allocated each of the four teams going to the repechege a sizeable amount for all of them to up their ante on the preparations. :?

Especially as the proposed budget is only 0,52 million Euro (60 million Kenyan shilling). I don't know, but that looks like a sum, World Rugby might have granted for preparation of the Repechage tournament.

So, WR gave them 60M, and yet they are asking the government for the same amount, coz they know govt doesn't know WR handed them money. Such corrupt hypocritical twats. As i said earlier on, In Kenya, the players are focused, but our union is the most corrupt entity and a massive hindrance to growth of rugby.

Their proposed budget was 0,52 million Euro, not what they've gotten from anyone. As I found out, I was actually wrong btw.: WR doesn't give extra funds for Repechage teams at all. (which is kind of ridiculous to beginn with).

How is a World Rugby grant relevant to a KRU seeking government funding? I can tell you that WR grants only funds about half of our HP budget.
