EURO DEVELOPMENT TRI NATIONS Match 3: Austria vs. Estonia
Paternion Stadium, Austria, Saturday 2nd September, KO 2pm
Austria will try to confirm their promising performance displayed in June against Germany, where they have been narrowly defeated 34-32 for the opening match of this inaugural Tri Nations tournament. Paternion Rugby club will host the event on what is considered to be ?the best Rugby pitch in Austria?, situated in the heart of this outstanding Alpine resort.
Selected for the RLEF IX?s President team who competed in last week end?s London MX9?s tournament, Christoph Kaltenboek from Austria is eager to face his Estonian ex-team mates who were also invited in London, European Skipper Petrik Mottus and promising full back Dmitri Myskiv.
The Estonian will battle to get their first victory on the international stage after their convincing debut in Tallinn against eventual Development Tri Nation Winners Germany. All the players are travelling from their homeland, and it is already a great achievement to be able to send a strong squad on the other side of Europe.
As previously for all development international fixtures, the RLEF will send a representative who will assist the locals, in order to encourage the development of Rugby League in Austria.
