France U19 team: Start of the European championship on Saturday

The kick-off of the European Under-19 Rugby League Championship will be played on Saturday in Udine, Italy.

Seven teams will take part in this competition (England, France, Ireland, Wales, Italy, Serbia, Ukraine) and will compete on the pitch of the Pasian Di Prato stadium.

There will be three days of action, starting with 20-minute matches between each nation to rank the teams.

The top four teams will then play the championship semi-finals on Tuesday, September 6 (80-minute matches), while the teams ranked 5th to 7th will face each other in 40-minute matches.

The championship final will take place on Saturday, September 10 (kick-off at 6 p.m. local time), preceded by the shield final (at 4 p.m.), contested by the losing semi-finalists.

“Excitement is building among the teams preparing to leave on Thursday September 1, and they are understandably excited to join the Lignano Sabbiadoro camp ,” said ERL chief executive David Butler.

“We look forward to some very competitive matches, but we are already seeing great examples of collaboration between nations who all share the common goal of developing rugby league on the continent.

It’s fantastic to see Ukraine able to hold their own.”

The defending French champions have included South Sydney fullback and Rabbitohs U19 Player of the Year Louis Grossemy in their squad.

“ When Louis came to see us to tell us that he had the opportunity to play for France, we gave him our agreement ,” said Joe O’Callaghan, the Souths manager.

“We think it’s a great opportunity for him to play for France. He’s only 19 and doesn’t know any of his teammates, so we think this experience will be beneficial for his development.

We have a very high opinion of Louis and when he comes back he will have a pre-season with the NRL team”.
