Rugby League European Shield Game 10 – Germany 30 Italy 66 – Report

Rugby League European Shield Game 10 – Report

ITALIANS CLAIM VICTORY IN HIGH SCORING ENCOUNTER – GERMANY 30 ITALY 66 – Karlsruhe

A man of the match performance from Warrington’s young full back James Saltonstall saw Italy retain faint hopes of winning the 2012-3 European Shield, with a 66-30 win over holders Germany in 36 degree heat in Karlsruhe.

The Azzurri moved to within two points of Russia in the table with the 12-try performance but if the Russians beat Germany at home on 10th August, they will be crowned champions and Germany relegated to the European Bowl.

Should the Germans pull off a shock win, then the Italians could still claim the crown if they defeat Serbia at home in October, which would possibly see the Serbs demoted.

The sharp and well organised Italians dominated the play the ball area with Gloucestershire All Golds stand off Matthew Bradley – who finished with 16 points – profiting from some quality ball from Hemel’s Joel Miranda which saw him spread it wide to great effect; Oldham winger Richard Lepori finishing with three tries.

“Our aim was to come up with three wins in the competition in the reverse fixtures this year and we are on target,” said Italy assistant and North West Roosters coach Kelly Rollaston.

“I’m pleased with how the newcomers fitted in; James Saltonstall was calm and class at the back and Matt Bradley ran the game. It was a great effort which showed how the domestic game in Italy is progressing.”

The Germans, on the back of four early penalties, took a shock lead who Oxford hooker Andy Hoggins burrowed over but from there the Italians dominated the first half, establishing a 38-8 advantage; their best try claimed by Ivan Barani following mesmerising handling from a scrum play.

As the heat took its toll, the Germans made a commendable fight of the second period which pleased their coach Dan Stocks.

“I was proud of the guys and I couldn’t fault their determination,” he said.

“They showed a lot of heart and were Italy’s equal after the break. It comes down to a lack of experience at this level and some naivety in conceding the early tries.”

Exciting winger Mawuli Améfia claimed two of the German touchdowns late on.

Rugby League European Shield Game 10 Preview – Germany V Italy

RUGBY LEAGUE EUROPEAN SHIELD GAME 10 PREVIEW – GERMANY V ITALY

Italy’s outside hopes of picking up the European Shield crown go on the line against holders Germany on Saturday, in Heidelberg.

The Azzurri are aiming to move to within two points of Russia at the top of the standings as the competition enters its final stages.

They start as favourites, having beaten the Germans 72-10 at home in the reverse fixture last year.

The German squad contains some veteran campaigners including the likes of Christoph Huber, Benedikt Rehm, Liam Doughton and Fabrice Fehlemann who all featured in Germanys first meeting with Italy in 2008. Kristian Keinhorst, their most capped international picks up his 16th cap, however it will be the first appearance without any of his world record breaking brothers alongside him. Nick is injured, Leeds Rhinos star Jimmy is unavailable on duty in Super League and twin brother Markus now resides in Canada, although will be travelling out for the clash against Russia in two weeks time.

After impressing in last year’s matches, Vinnie Spies returns to the squad and is joined by Mawuli Amefia and Daniel Lortz, who featured in the 2012 heavy defeat against Italy. Andrew Hoggins, who has been enjoying a maiden season in RFL Championship 1 with Oxford and former Wakefield Trinity Wildacts academy product Del Bartlett will add some experience to a side that is eager to register their first win over Italy in four attempts.

“Last year’s preparations for the Italy game were far from ideal and that was reflected in the heavy defeat we suffered,” said Germany coach Dan Stocks. “Ten of the players in the current squad played in that match and I know are keen to make amends for that performance.”

New faces to the Italian squad include 20 year old Simone Boscolo from Ariete Este. The young hooker has put in some eye-catching performances in the domestic competition and has forced his way into the Italian side with a good performance in the State of Origin.

Michele Verardi has also been selected after overshadowing some of the more experienced players and is the first player form the newly formed Tirreno Sharks to represent Italy. Runners up in the domestic competition, North West Roosters have the largest group of players chosen with Mattia Saracco and Andrea Monaco set to make their debuts.

Sweden take the spoils in opening match of rugby league Nordic Cup

SWEDEN TAKE THE SPOILS IN OPENING MATCH OF RUGBY LEAGUE NORDIC CUP

Sweden produced an upset win in the opening game of the 2013 Nordic Cup, beating holders and European Bowl participants Norway 40-22 in Oslo.

The underdog visitors raced into a 20-0 lead, skipper Fabian Wikander leading the way, the hooker posting a total of two tries and six goals in a 20 point haul.

Tom Bolton, who opened the scoring on five minutes, Sebastian A. Hylander, Tom Field, outstanding second rower Nadeem Riaz and Christian Suciu scored the other Sweden tries.

Norway’s pack fought back well in the second half and although 30-12 down at the break threatened a comeback with touchdowns to Magnus Sundsfjord, Kristian Elgheim – who also kicked three goals, Cam Leslie and Sonny Mellor, but it proved to be too little too late.

In a match refereed by Rajendra Shah, the majority of the Swedish side came from their newest domestic club Skåne Crusaders, whose coaches Paul Briggs and Ashley Brown worked their magic for the national team.

Sweden now prepare to take on Denmark at home in Kävlinge, Southern Sweden, on Saturday 3 August and with it a shot at winning the crown. The final match pitches Denmark at home to Norway a fortnight later.
