EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP C, GAME 1 – MALTA 18 GREECE 32 – MATCH REPORT

The President of Malta, H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, watched as her national side were defeated by Greece, 32-18, in the opening fixture of European Championship C at the FC Melita Stadium near Pembroke.

She was accompanied by Greek ambassador to Malta, Alexandros Rallis who saw hooker Liam Sue-Tin turn in a man of the match performance for the visitors.

He was instrumental in the opening score, latching on to a Michael Korkidas break and sending Nikolaos Kanellopoulos over, Sue-Tin goaling.

Former Wakefield star Korkidas was the provider of the Greek second try for Terry Constantinou in the 12th minute, Sue-Tin again on target and Greece’s early dominance was confirmed when scrum half Michail Giorgas–Spanos scampered in, Sue-Tin’s goal giving them an 18-point cushion.

Malta hit back on the half hour as their half backs gained more control, winger Ed Willis crossing and Sam Keep converting.

The hosts began the second period in much better form, their best, centre Malcolm Attard with the first of his two tries, Keep’s goal reducing the gap to six points.

Malta were dealt a blow in the 50th minute when second rower Dragan Cerketa left the field with a knee injury and play was halted soon after when Giorgas-Spanos suffered concussion after a heavy collision.

The break for treatment seemed to suit the hosts as they drew level just after the hour through Attard and Keep’s third goal, delighting the around 300 fans.

Pine Rivers rake Sue-Tin then took charge, his great break and pass sending in stand off Niokolaos Bosmos, Sue-Tin adding the goal and a penalty four minutes from time to establish a vital two score lead.

Malta pressed in the closing stages but Korkidas completed the scoring with a long range touchdown, Sue-Tin keeping up his perfect kicking record.

BELGIUM TAKE THE SPOILS IN LOW COUNTRIES DERBY

Belgium defeated Holland 32-16 at the VUB-Sports department in Brussels, crossing for six tries.

Man of the match Simon Marotte led the way, opening the scoring in the fourth minute after a clever dummy.

Holland responded to lead 6-4 at the break, stand off Brian Roos with their try, goaled by Uri Breman.

Five minutes into the second period, a terrific break by Belgium full back Medhi Hrim saw Lelio Guimar cross, Kevin Williams goaling.

But the Dutch were back in front straight after, great handling sending their best, Marcus Holden over, Breman with the extras.

Tries just before and after the hour gave the hosts the ascendancy, Steven Garofalo sprinting 60 metres and prop Sydney-Jordan Muluma powering over, Williams goaling both to make it 22-12.

Holden’s sensational 90 metre run for his second try narrowed the gap to a converted score but Belgium finished strongly.

Simon Troquereaux was on the end of some terrific teamwork and Josquin Dewinne went 30 metres to the posts, impressive scrum half Williams landing his fourth conversion.

MEDITERRANEAN NATIONS CLASH AT THE START OF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP C

The opening match in European Championship C will see Malta take on Greece in Melita on Saturday afternoon, the visitors on debut in official competition.

H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the President of Malta, will be presented to the teams and match official Serbian referee Radoslav Novakovic for an encounter that is expected to draw the biggest crowd for a rugby league game on the island.

Malta launched the game with a press conference at Hugo’s Pub in Paceville and although they will be without Jarrod Sammut, Matthew Mizzi from Australian side Central Queensland Capras has flown in to bolster the local talent.

The visitors, who arrive tomorrow (Friday) have included former Wakefield prop Michael Korkidas, who is currently playing for Dapto Canaries, in their squad for the game near Pembroke.

Malta coach Anthony Micallef is expecting a tough challenge. “We’ve had a different preparation this summer but it’s one we believe will bring the best results,” he said.

“We have a changing team since our last experience in European competition some years ago but more domestic players challenging is very healthy for the squad. It promises to be an exciting match up.”

Joe Paolella, who plays for reigning Maltese champions, Malta Origin RL can’t wait for the experience.

“It’s a great honour to have the opportunity to represent my country for a third time,” noted the 20-year-old. “The hype has been building for the last month and we’re all very excited for the game.”

Tasos Pantazidis, president of the Hellenic Federation of Rugby League added: “We are all very excited about our first match in the European Championship. We know that Malta has a much more experienced team, but we will try our best.”

GB RUGBY LEAGUE STUDENT PIONEERS HEAD FOR GHANA

Details have been finalised and visas obtained for the GB Student Pioneers rugby league tour to Ghana, which arrives in the country on Monday, 30th June and will see the squad in the West African nation for two weeks.

The Pioneers were formed in 2005 and encompass students from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales with the aim of aiding fledgling nations.

They made their inaugural tour to Estonia and have since visited the Czech Republic, Latvia, Ukraine, Norway, Kazakhstan, Greece and Poland.

Squad members are ambassadors for their university and sport, selection criteria considering not only their ability to play the game to a high standard but a proven track record in undertaking rugby league development activity.

While in Ghana, the squad will play three matches against the Ghana All Stars and two facing the national side while also running coaching clinics in schools, running touch rugby tournaments – including one on the beach, meeting the local press and taking part in cultural activities and visits.

GRL Development Manager Sylvester Wellington commented: “This tour has been two years in the planning. We have heard and read about the Pioneers and how they are helping countries to develop rugby league and we feel this is a big opportunity for Ghana to showcase what we have been doing and how fast the sport has grown here.”

“The players and management of Ghana RL are looking forward to it because it will help in making so many more people aware about the sport.”

He added: “We also know this will open the way for us in terms of sponsorships and making some of our players known outside Africa, there is some terrific talent here.”

The tourists, who have been helped in their preparations by the sport’s official charity, Rugby League Cares, will be managed by Steve Curtis, Sports Development Manager at the University of Hull.

He said: “The SRL GB Pioneers tour to Ghana is an exciting new challenge for us. The RLEF have done some great work out there and we want to help build on it and spread the word about rugby league.”

“We have a busy itinerary and all the players and staff are looking forward to leaving tools to help grow the sport there.”

NORWAY RUGBY LEAGUE RELEASE SQUAD FOR NORDIC CUP CLASH

Oslo Capitals provide the bulk of the Norway squad picked to face Denmark in the opening game of the 2014 Nordic Cup in Oslo this weekend, while Lars and Nils Haigh are two of three representatives from Saddleworth Rangers.

Coach Craig West is back on board for the tournament having worked with the national side in 2011.

“I’ll be interested to see the progress the country has made in the last three years,” he commented. “Rugby league in Norway is still very young in this mentally-tough sport but we are looking to build on the enthusiasm in the country.”

He added, “I also hope to bring the team a modernized structure without overcomplicating things. Attack is of course a very important part of the game and to have players that can score a try from anywhere on the field offers the threat of winning a game. But a side that has a well organised defence will always be victorious.”

“The match with the Danes will show us where we stand and what we need to modify. We can then use that knowledge gained to prepare for the tie against holders Sweden at the end of August.”

Norway squad for Nordic Cup 2014:-

Magnus Sundsfjord (Bodo Barbarians), Christian Brakstad Glendrange, Harald Mikalsen, Kristoffer Milligan, Lloyd Omdal (Flekkefjord Tigers), David Hunter, Sonny Mellor, Sindre Sundby (Flisbyen Broncos), Henrik Edvardsen, Peter Engeland, Hans Frøhaug, Bastian Fromm, Joshua Hornby, Bent Johansen, Cameron Leslie, Alex Mbala, Erlend Meldalen, Nick Palmer, Bjorn Pettersen, Trent Rowan, Isaac Schmidt, Jorgen Schmidt, Andreas Thorsen (Oslo Capitals), Kevin Batnes, Matthew Davidson, Kai Holm, Emil Lunde, Freddie Ostvold (Porsgrunn Pirates), Lars Haigh, Nils Haigh, Tommy Hilton (Saddleworth Rangers)
