West Indies confirm participation in Middlesex 9?s

The West Indies 9?s side will be making a visit to New River Stadium in 2004, with the team having their application for the Middlesex 9?s confirmed.

Whilst the body governing the Middlesex 9?s has not yet confirmed if the West Indies will gain a position instantly in the main stage of the tournament which will be held on July 18, or will have to participate in the qualification tournament, the WIRLF is very pleased to know that it will play a game in July as part of its 2004 representative season.

Full details of the 2004 event will be confirmed within the next few months.

The Middlesex 9?s is part of the Rugby League 9?s Grand Prix, which also involves the York 9?s in Northern England and the Lezignan 9?s in France. The tournament was won by the Royal Engineers in 2003, after they defeated the hosts, the London Skolars in the final.

The West Indies Rugby League Federation wishes to thank 1895 International for its assistance in helping the organisation gain entry into the tournament.
