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.

The German federation confirms 26:20 (9:14)

I hate this kind of news stories without full stats. Only a penalty by Parkinson, one try from Laubscher and a conversion from Klewinghaus is mentioned.

Nope, it had only the German based players involved, so a lot of the starters missing. As Germany's rugby is in winter break since november a smart decision to have a game like this where everybody gets game-time before the REC.

26-man-Squad against Belgium this saturday (will be reduced to 23).

CSM Bukarest: Hagen Schulte
UC Carcassonne (Frankreich): Maxime Oltmann
SO Chambery (Frankreich): Sebastian Ferreira
Stade Dijonais (Frankreich): Harris Aounallah
Doncaster RFC (England): Tobias Williams
SC Frankfurt 1880: Marcel Henn, Raynor Parkinson, Samy Füchsel, Hassan Rayan, Elias Haase, Marcel Becker
TSV Handschuhsheim: Jaco Otto, Nikolai Klewinghaus, Marcel Coetzee, Felix Martel, Paul Schüle
Heidelberger RK: Jörn Schröder, Dash Barber, Felix Lammers
Kahurangi Rugby Club (Neuseeland): Vito Lammers
RSV Köln: Morne Laubscher
BSC Offenbach: Winston Cameron-Dow
Stade Rochelais (Frankreich): Eric Marks
Rotherham Titans RC (England): Anthony Dickinson
Southern Kings (Südafrika): Kurt Haupt
RC Vannes (Frankreich): Tim Menzel

Missing players: Els (injured), Nostadt, Hilsenbeck (both no release from their French clubs), Poppmeier, Armstrong (both personal reasons, but there for the other games)

New players: Vito Lammers (German who grew up in New Zealand and played for the U20 Tasman Makos, according to totalrugby also a 7s candidate).
Tobias Williams (German born prop from Doncaster, RFU Championship).

http://www.totalrugby.de/content/view/9740/37/

I think this a very good team. Schulte is my personal favourite 10 (before Hilsenbeck). Really great that Haupt stays committed, he was great in the repechage. Armstrong will be missed at 9, but Menzel and Laubscher aren't bad either. Surprising is the depth at the prop positions even without Nostadt. Let's see how that plays out

One of the first comments on this was, if this might actually be a sign that he gets involved more in German Rugby again. The new German president and former Adidas CFO Robin Stalker should be a man he respects.


You mean the team he just bought a year ago? Not even PE funds churn and burn companies that quickly. I guess you can say this man really is.....Wild.

Damn, the amount of misspelled names in this is truly staggering. All they have to do, is to copy and paste them. It's a small thing, but it drives me nuts.

It would've been nice to see a full 80 of German scoring instead of just the first 5 minutes. But unstable scrums and silly errors and clearly better aggressive Belgium side stopped us. Looks like we might start preparing for relegation

That missed conversion and bonus point may give you something to hope for. If Belgium is unable to win any other point during the tournament a single win would allow you to advance them.

If Spain manages to win a game and take some BP, enough to avoid relegation fears, you can be sure our team in Cologne will be B or C. There's Top 14 and ProD2 that weekend. I wouldn't throw in the towel if I were German in spite of today's uninspiring performance.

How have Belgium improved so much lately then? Their scrum on 7 minutes is unbelievable! I watched Germany in the repechage last November and they looked very promising the REC so I’m surprised that they lost this one.

Just watched the game this morning and I am genuinely impressed with Belgium. They come in leaps in the last 7 - 8 months. I had Germany for a win with Ford at the helm but Belgium got their number.

29 players nominated for German squad for the game in Romania this saturday (13:00 German time)

https://www.rugby-verband.de/drv-xv-vor ... -rumaenien

BSC Offenbach: Wynston Cameron-Dow
Hannover 78: Rafael Pyrasch
Heidelberger RK: Jörn Schröder, Dasch Barber, Felix Lammers
RSV Köln: Morne Laubscher
SC Frankfurt 1880: Marcel Henn, Samy Füchsel, Michael Poppmeier, Elias Haase
SC Neuenheim: Samuel J. Harris
TSV Handschuhsheim: Jaco Otto, Nikolai Klewinghaus, Eden Syme, Felix Martel
TV Pforzheim: Lee Murray
Aberdeen Wanderers RFC (SCO): Matthias Schösser
CSM Bucharesti (ROM): Hagen Schulte
Doncaster RFC (ENG): Tobias Williams
Kahurangi RC (NZL): Vito Lammers
Southern Kings (RSA): Kurt Haupt
RC Vannes (FRA): Tim Menzel
Rotherham Titans RC (ENG): Antony Dickinson
SO Chambery (FRA): Sebastian Ferreira
Stade Aurilliacois CA (FRA): Julius Nostadt
Stade Dijonais (FRA): Harris Aounallah
Stade Francais (FRA): Emil Rupf
Stade Rochelais (FRA): Eric Marks
UC Carcassonne (FRA): Maxime Oltmann

Back in the squad: Schösser, Nostadt, Poppmeier, Harris, Oltmann (was actually in the squad for the Belgium game but probably wasn't released by his club), Pyrasch (yes, the new women's coach)
New players: Murray (qualified through 3 years residency), Rupf (young hopeful talent)
Players out since the Belgium game: Parkinson (no idea hopefully not injured), Rayan (only played some minutes)

The number of nominated players (29) indicates that same might not be released again by their clubs. Lets wait and see who it will be.
The addings of Nostadt, Schösser and Poppmeier should provide a way better and stable scrum. I am sure we'll need that against Romania. Especially Poppmeier's absence was really noticeable against Belgium. I am also wondering for a while what exactly the coaches see in Cameron-Dow. He hasn't impressed me yet in a single game.

Update:
According to totalrugby.de Oltmann missed out the Belgium game due to an injury, Vito Lammers isn't sure because of an injury he acquired against Belgium. Parkinson is out, because he wasn't released by Frankfurt 1880 as this game collides with his job as a youth coach for the club.
Still no word, why Armstrong wasn't in a squad yet.

That sounds so Romanian. After all maybe Germany &Romania are not so different except few thousands of autobahn.

But those thousands make a huge difference if you set up a game in Botosani a place in the middle of nowhere between Moldava and the Ukraine like Romania did :D
How the hell do you actually get there?

By the way Frankfurt has made a statement, that it was Parkinson's choice to go or not, but he chose being a youth coach that weekend. Fair enough he is 30 and the 1880 youth are our best hopes we've got in Germany.
