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.

German squad preparing since tuesday in Heidelberg:

Berliner RC: Anton Gleitze
SC Frankfurt 1880: Samy Füchsel, Marcel Becker, Hassan Rayan
Hannover 78: Justin Renc, Maximilian Kopp, Pascal Fischer
Heidelberger RK: Jörn Schröder, Pierre Mathurin, Niklas Hohl, Felix Lammers
TSV Handschuhsheim: Paul Schüle, Felix Martel, Mark Fairhurst, Emil Schäfer, Nikolai Klewinghaus, Benedikt Müssig
RG Heidelberg: Anthony Dickinson. Johannes Schreieck
RK Heusenstamm: Zinzan Hees
SC Neuenheim: Paul Weiss, Mick Burisch, Robert Lehmann, Nikolas Rinklin, Oliver Paine, Luke Wakefield

German national team coach Mark Kuhlmann says: "We had some late declinations due to injuries or personal reason, but I still think that we can send a good team on the pitch. The team is young and inexperienced on that level, but they are all playing as starters in our Bundesliga. We are not favourites though. Poland plays like a classical Eastern European team with a strong focus on forward play".

Well this is the restart without any playery plying their trade abroad. A young German selection with at least some old guys. Let's see but this is the rebuild. This match will determine if we fight for promotion this year or fight against another relegation.

Zinzan Hees presumably comes from a rugby family!

Brother Leon plays 7s for Germany and was part of the team that won the RE 2019 7s European Championship. Father Harald played XV and 7s for Germany ages ago and is now President of the German Rugby Union.

Reportedly...

The name comes from a surname, from a family from London, and from Devon in England. Some of the Zinzan family migrated to New Zealand in the mid 19th Century. I have read that it was originally a variation of an Italian surname, Zinzanni

All 3 games live on the ENC web site right now. Germany leading Poland 25-8 midway 2nd half, Austria 33-9 over Norway late 2nd half, and no score between Sweden and Luxembourg midway 1st half.

Update: FT Austria win 38-9
Update: FT Germany win 35-15

It was tough to watch the game after the pinnacle of rugby a RWC final is. Especially it is strange to not see every decision made by the ref in replay. Sometimes I think world class refs have it way more easy ;)

Good result for the new German squad, a lot of youngsters coming through like Justin Renc who played 80 minutes (minus his yellow card) at the age of 18.

Final score :

Sweden 0 - 13 Luxembourg

Interesting score. Not sure what to make of it. Dreadful weather conditions.
