There's an English deaf team? That's interesting.

In the Netherlands they've been experimenting with blind referees.

: )

Bulgaria large group for England Deaf clash. There's also an italian sounding forward (Andrea-Franco Candela) but from some search on the web he seems 100% bulgarian. The head coach is from Mauriac, a little town on central France

Strange people, these BUL

1) healthy guys play the Deaf
2) all based at home but still append BUL to club affiliations

++ Once a GEO ref officiated them and was amazed:

BUL played true 8-men rugby = ball NEVER went past 8 from scrum

They have been experimenting with blind referees in many of the games I have witnessed too.

I've done the 2016-2018 circle of parity for international teams. 29 in total, there may be a way to get more in, but I doubt it. I'm particularly proud of finding a way to get Korea in there. https://twitter.com/BTCBlurandski/statu ... 0659367937
