Poland -Lithuania 03.11.18 RET

Postby polter » Thu, 01 Nov 2018, 13:20

Venue - Lodz
Kick-off - 18:00 local time

This is the second game for these teams this season. Both have played the Czech Republic with Poland getting arguably the better result winning 41-20 away while the Lithuanians won 30-10 at home. Both teams played a very fast offloading game so this should be an exciting game.

It will be held in the Widzew Lodz football stadium where Poland managed to beat the Dutch 2 seasons ago and ran the Portuguese close last year.

An extended squad was named a few weeks ago with the players that are intended to be used for this game and the one against the Dutch in Lublin in a fortnight.

This was named a while ago and some of the above players have been injured playing in the knock-out round of the Polish League. This will conclude the following weekend to this game where Lodz will play Ogniwo Sopot in a repeat of last years final. At the start of the season Lodz were steam rolling pretty much every team in the league, but more recently have not had it all their own way with Sopot and Siedlice both putting out strong squads.

One interesting name who had been playing for Siedlice is Harry Siejka who has played for some NRL teams in Australia and Super League in England. He has recently played for Poland in the Rugby League Emerging Nations World Cup where the team was essentially based on Australian born players and went undefeated to win the Trophy competition. Harry was named in the Team of the Tournament as well as his team-mate the second row Chippie Korostczuk. Add to this some formidable backs like the full back Ethan Niszczot and the Maslanka brothers and Poland could be tapping into a rich seam of overseas talent.

It was an interesting tournament to follow with what I would say were unusual countries taking part such as Greece, Nuie, Hungary and the eventual winners Malta who all contested the main Championship competition.

Lithuania have named their squad for the game and unsurprisingly it is similar to the one that beat the Czechs.

Polish line-up below:

01. Marcin Wilczuk - Ogniwo Sopot
02. Kamil Bobryk - CS Vienne, Francja
03. Toma Mchedlidze - Budowlani Łódź SA
04. Hugo Mazur (debiutant) - Olympique Marcquois Rugby, Francja
05. Kacper Lawski - CA Pontarlier Rugby, Francja
06. Piotr Wiśniewski - Budowlani Lublin
07. Konstantyn Bezverkhyi (debiutant) - Ogniwo Sopot
08. Piotr Zeszutek, kapitan - Ogniwo Sopot
09. Mateusz Plichta - Ogniwo Sopot
10. Wojciech Piotrowicz - Ogniwo Sopot
11. Grzegorz Szczepański - Ogniwo Sopot
12. Daniel Gdula - Pogoń Siedlce
13. Harry Siejka (debiutant) - Burleigh Bears, Australia/Pogoń Siedlce
14. Aron Struminski (debiutant) - Taunton Titans RFC, Anglia
15. Krystian Pogorzelski - Budowlani Łódź SA

16. Adrian Chróściel - Pogoń Siedlce
17. Grzegorz Buczek - Lechia Gdańsk
18. Mateusz Adamski - Budowlani Łódź SA
19. Adam Piotrowski - Ogniwo Sopot
20. Stanisław Powała-Niedźwiecki - Ogniwo Sopot
21. Jakub Bobruk - Budowlani Lublin
22. Kewin Bracik - Lechia Gdańsk
23. Radosław Bysewski - Ogniwo Sopot

Harry Seijka makes it in at outside centre while the England based player Struminski features for the first time on the wing. Lawski gets a recall in the second row. It seems the bigger names of Nowicki and Bartoczek are not in the squad and it could be a case of calling in the favours with their French clubs for the game against the Dutch.
