UKRAINE RUGBY LEAGUE ANNOUNCE NEW FRANCHISES

Following meetings in England in the run up to Christmas, Ukraine Rugby League has announced a revamp of its top competition which will see five regional Super League franchises put in place, allied to English clubs.

Transcarpathia Trinity, linked to Wakefield; Lviv Tigers allied to Castleford; Wests Knights, partnered by York; Kyiv Rhinos who will work with Leeds; and Easts Giants, supported by Huddersfield, will be the participants of the 2018 Joma Super Rugby League.

“This is a significant moment for Ukrainian Rugby League and the start of new historical stage of our development,” said UFRL president Artur Martyrosyan Jnr who led the negotiations, on his return to Kiev. “We are extremely grateful to all the partner clubs who have come on board to support us, as well as sponsors Joma, and their combined vision in seeing what we are trying to achieve. This is the perfect Christmas present for us and gives us a tremendous building block into 2018.”

Existing Ukrainian clubs RLC "KORZO" (Uzhgorod), RKLC "MNU" (Mukachevo) and RLC "LIONS" (Korolevo) will form Trinity; RC "SOKIL" (Lviv) will become the Tigers; RLC "RIVNE" (Rivne) and RLC "TEREN" (Ternopil) the Knights; local rivals RLC "KYIV" (Kyiv), RC "REBELS" (Kyiv) will join as the Rhinos, and defending champions RLC "LEGION XIII" (Kharkiv) and RLC "SARMAT" (Kramators`k) become the Giants.

Each franchise will have a fully-fledged structure mirroring their English counterparts with children’s, youth and adult sections whilst the URL has also formed an association with Halifax-based Global Rugby League Academy to further opportunities for their student players – which will include specially designed training programmes and the opportunity to join English community clubs whilst studying at college or university – coaches and match officials.

“We are very serious about the prospects for Ukrainian Rugby League and now some of our goals have been achieved,” added Martyrosyan. “There is now a clear path of development for players of all ages and qualifications and for coaches and officials. We believe that it will not take long for the results to be seen.”

It is anticipated that the tie-up will also see Ukrainians as guests at Betfred Super League games during 2018.

Rugby League European Federation in robust shape for 2018

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

FROM: RLEF MEDIA DEPARTMENT

RLEF GEARED UP FOR 2018

“Rugby league’s presence has grown quite dramatically this year,” says general manager Danny Kazandjian in his end of year report. “A number of strategic objectives have been achieved, with Bulgaria, Cameroon, Greece and Turkey all admitted as observer nations. The latter three all have multiple clubs and are well positioned to become members by the end of next year and we have implemented benchmarks to systematically achieve that. Significantly, the Netherlands and Germany both became affiliate members, the first nations since Spain in 2015, demonstrating stability both on and off the pitch. Seeing new members is really encouraging as it shows genuine progress in all the key areas, especially in terms of domestic competition.”

The year closed with the total number of RLEF members standing at a record 21 and the governing body is currently in contact with another two European and two African nations who are preparing observer applications that will be lodged in 2018.

2017 was the busiest year yet for the RLEF Education team who not only ran the part EU-funded Training and Education Portal project for 21 European participants, but also delivered courses in Russia and America. The first graduates of the new Level 2 coaches and match officials programmes qualified, with locally trained educators beginning to take a greater leadership role, significantly strengthening infrastructures.

Some of the brightest European talent will be on display in 2018 with the relaunch of the U19s European Championship, scheduled for 5-11 August in Belgrade, Serbia, which will be officiated by the most promising European officials and will concurrently run an elite coaches camp.

Kazandjian continues: “The Board supported the membership’s clear desire for more structured international competition, and the U19s event is now biennial. That there are strong enough youth programmes to support this tournament is a great sign of continuing progress. We also saw Norway field a youth national team for the first time, which is a testament to the sensible way in which RL Norge has approached its growth and development.”

The RLEF has also been responsible for more funding awards, with regional directors Remond Safi and Jovan Vujosevic both successful in applications for Lebanon, Serbia and South Africa.

“We’re entering the final few months of the current strategic cycle,” concludes Kazandjian. “We’re currently writing the new 2018-25 strategy and the progress that has been made is very encouraging mainly thanks to the hard work on the ground from largely volunteer-driven governing bodies; 2017 has been characteristic of that progress.”

Greek Rugby League report significant progress

GREEK RUGBY LEAGUE ASSOCIATION

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

Date: 15 December, 2017

Contact: George Stilianos | stilianos.george

PROGESS MADE IN GREECE

Greek Rugby League is reporting significant progress as their current domestic season begins to take shape.

Four clubs – Aris Eagles, Attica Rhinos, Patras Panthers and defending champions Rhodes Knights – make up the domestic championship – with the recent game between the Panthers and Knights staged at the 25,000-seat Pampeloponnisiako Stadium.

That match represented a 1,340km round trip for Rhodes who, along with last season’s Grand Finalists Attica, are still unbeaten in 2017-18.

Aris, who lost narrowly to Rhodes 20-6 having held a 6-0 lead, have seen an influx of new players and are tipped as the team to watch in the second half of the season.

“We are now live-streaming all our matches, which has been great given the geographical spread of our teams,” confirmed interim GRL president George Stilianos. “It allows anyone who’s interested in Greece or abroad to watch our games.”

National captain Stefanos Bastas, from Rhodes, took a leap of faith booking a one-way ticket to England for the opportunity to trial and train with Hemel in English League 1.

His gamble paid off as the Stags have announced that they have signed him to a contract for the 2018 season.

“We are extremely proud of Stefanos and his accomplishment,” noted Stilianos. It is an acknowledgement for everyone involved in Greek Rugby League. His coach at Rhodes, Michalis Chatiioannou, has done a great job guiding and developing him over the years. We wish him all the best.”

Another national team player, Nikos Kanellopoulos, has moved back to his home town of Pyrgos-ileias and set up a new team there, who anticipate playing their first friendly match in early 2018.

In another significant development, coach Panagiotis Katsoularis is in the process of setting up a side that will be part of the famous AEL-Larisa club.

“The people of Larisa, despite not being familiar with rugby league, have already embraced us,” said Katsoularis

“We were overwhelmed with the response as 22 players turned up to our first training session. We are aiming to join the main league next year and really make our presence felt.”

The four existing sides are also planning on putting in applications to join the 2018 Balkan Super League, first run this year and featuring club sides from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria and Turkey.

Stilianos added: “It is something we consider important in our development. We are aiming to improve steadily year upon year and are also eagerly awaiting the fixtures and format for the 2021 World Cup to be announced.”

SERBIA AND JAMAICA RECEIVE FUNDING BOOST

Serbian Rugby League has announced that a sponsorship deal with the Australian embassy in Serbia will continue in 2018. Through the Australian Department for Foreign Affairs’ Trade Direct Aid Programme, the SRL will again receive funds for rugby league development at junior and youth level.

The TDAP is intended for European countries that are not members of the EU. RLEF Central and Eastern regional director and SRL board member, Jovan Vujošević, commented: “We are extremely thankful for this support over the last three years, particularly the work of ambassador Julia Feeney. All programmes that the Australian Embassy have assisted through the Direct Aid Programme were directed towards the development of children and youth sports and also for them to get acquainted with Australian culture of which rugby league is such an important part.”

The next tranche will run in the first half of 2018 and will include work with children aged from seven to ten and youths from 14 to 18 years old, living in Belgrade. The project will be managed by Colin Kleyweg, board member of newly crowned SRL champions Red Star.

Meanwhile, on-line website ‘Rugby League Around The Grounds’ has signed a sponsorship deal with the Jamaica Rugby League Association that will provide support for the national and international game on the island.

JRLA director of rugby, Romeo Monteith, said. “This is a great fit, we are all rugby league enthusiasts and look forward to this partnership aiding the future development of the sport in Jamaica. It shows the increasing value of the JRLA, its competitions and our national team, the Reggae Warriors.”

Twelve new coaches take Germany rugby league course

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

FROM: RLEF MEDIA DEPARTMENT

DATE: 13 December, 2017

GERMANY HOLDS SUCCESSFUL COACHING COURSE

Nationaler Rugby League Deutschland has run a successful Level 1 coaching course as part of the EU-backed Training and Education Portal project.

Twelve local candidates attended the two-day course which was led by NRLD coach educators Bob Mawuli Amefia, Simon Cooper and Bob Doughton, and overseen by Rugby League Ireland’s Mike Aughey and Wales’s Jon Ellis of their cluster group.

“It was good to see the work being done at grassroots level and the enthusiasm of those involved in German rugby league,” said Aughey. “Watching the Rugby League World Cup final live on German television with members of the German national squad and a German commentary – which referred several times to the domestic game – was an incredible experience.”

Two of the candidates were UK-based Nick Keinhorst and Dan Pearson, who are keen to help German rugby league progress.

“All of the candidates were extremely committed, as indeed were the children from the TuS Hattingen Rugby League club who provided the candidates for the assessments,” added Doughton. “I am sure that the weekend will help to consolidate the Steeden BundesLeague and strengthen our foundation for further growth.”

The TEP is a three-year, €723.000 investment into capacity building through good governance and technical training, funded by €466.000 from the EU’s Erasmus+ project and the remainder from the RLIF and five of its full members. It is intended to build the knowledge and skills of the RLEF’s 21 European members, divided into six regional clusters, through high quality training and mentoring, while granting opportunities to share experiences amongst fellow Europeans dedicated to rugby league development.

First European candidates receive level 2 rugby league coaching and officials qualifications

PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

FROM: RLEF MEDIA DEPARTMENT

DATE: 11 December, 2017

CONTACT: phil.caplan / +44 7850719412

FIRST EUROPEANS RECEIVE LEVEL 2 QUALIFICATIONS

Native-born Michalis Chatziiannou from Greece and Italy’s Tiziano Franchini have become the first Level 2 qualified coaches and Level 1 coach educators to graduate from the part EU-funded RLEF technical programme, with several others close to completion.

In addition, New Zealander Kelly Rolleston from the Federazione Italiana Rugby League received the coaching qualification, while Andrew Pilkington of the Asociacion Española de Rugby League, Rugby League Ireland’s Paul Causby and James Spencer, and the Greek Rugby League Association’s Aris Dardamanis and George Stilianos all received the match official qualification.

“The technical education programme is now beginning to bear fruit,” said RLEF coach manager Martin Crick. “In the past, coaching has often relied on expatriates with past playing experience. Now, however, member nations are developing their own staff. The training of knowledgeable coach educators is a key development for the sport in Europe. Without it we cannot improve playing standards. Being able to deliver training in their own language will allow more people to access coach education.”

“It’s fantastic to see the demonstrable progress that has been made training local match officials across the federation over the last eight years,” said RLEF Match Officials Manager Tom Mather. “This is an excellent result for the diligent tutors, the dedicated local officials and the forward thinking federations. Technical education is at the heart of the RLEF strategy and this is just the beginning of national federations leading their own sport within a high quality and universal system.”

A group of Polish, Russian, Serbian, Czech and Spanish practitioners are also close to achieving the qualifications as the technical knowledge of rugby league in Europe deepens.
