No defections, it seems.
The eventual Development Pool would comprise just Slovakia and Estonia, if new entries didn't occur (last year Montenegro withdrew)

Maybe a 4 groups with 3-teams (home and away = 4 rounds anyway) model would make more sense for Conference 2, allowing 2 more teams (Slovakia and Estonia)...

Exemple

A: Norway, Denmark, Finland
B: Andorra, Austria, Slovakia
C: Moldova, Bulgaria, Estonia
D: Bosnia, Serbia, Turkey

Promotion Semis C-D, A-B

Development division TBD, but discussions are apparently with Slovakia, Estonia, Montenegro and one or two other members. Who are the RE members not already involved? Greece? Monaco? Are Gibraltar RE members?

Well the stream is up now for Czechia v Hungary: https://www.rugbyeurope.eu/2019-20-reic ... vs-hungary

Wow, try for Czechia on 29 seconds! Intercept pass and they were in...

Half time it's 31 - 0 to the hosts, so BP win assured unless Hungary do something incredible...

Ended 64 - 0

Is there 15-a-side rugby in Iceland?

Northern Macedonia, sir :P Are they already trying membership?

I do not know anything about rugby in Iceland, but I bet with just how much fitness and strength is part of Icelandic culture that they could make a strong rugby team if the sport ever took off. I mean they are the ancestors of vikings after all! :lol:

Here is a link to a documentary about strength and what it means to the culture of Iceland. Just saying if they can get rugby going with a team with guys like this they could be halfway decent.

Iceland has had an active programme for over a decade, albeit involving fewer than 100 players. It has fielded a national team in European sevens events.

North Macedonia has a rugby club and national federation. Victorsra shared this link a while back: https://www.novamakedonija.com.mk/pecateno-izdanie/рагбито-во-македонија-станува-сѐ-попо/

REC Development fixtures:
18/4/19
Estonia v Belarus
Slovakia v Montenegro

9/5/19
Montenegro v Estonia
Belarus v Slovakia

31/5/20
Estonia v Slovakia
Belarus v Montenegro



Shouldn't these dates all be 2020?

The prospect of a Belarus club - Dynamo Minsk - competing in Russian competition was raised last year but ultimately it did not happen. Up til now the White Russians have been whipping boys for other European minnows:

Belarus international results from rugbyinternational.net:
04.10.2014 ESTONIA TALLINN LOST 12 - 50 ENC 3 Preliminary Playoff.
18.05.2016 SLOVAKIA TALLINN LOST 17 - 29 REC 3; Semi-final
21.05.2016 MONTENEGRO TALLINN LOST 19 - 45 REC 3; Playoff 3rd-4th

NB: Montenegro also has a team in the Balkans Rugby League (as in the XIII-man rival code), which includes clubs from Turkey, Serbia, Bosnia, Albania, Bulgaria, Greece and Italy.

That puts things in perspective. There are Mexican suburbs which have more people than Iceland.
