Test Match: Hungary Takes on Slovenia

Slovenia v Hungary in Pecs (ENC 3B)

Venue: Várkői Stadium

Referee: Iordachaescu (Romania)

It's very disappointing that the governing bodies of the sport in these two countries cannot publish team list before such an important game.

Slovenia remains undefeated at the top of this competition. They caused a major upset in their first game, a 32-26 win over favourites Hungary. Slovenia had only just gained promotion from ENC 3C. Slovenia qualified to play Israel in a World Cup qualifying match but lost. A win here will see them retain the lead and look set for another promotion.

Slovenia has dominated ENC 3B despite only just gaining promotion from ENC 3C

After they dropped their first match against Slovenia, the Hungarians won against Norway, Denmark and Austria
