INTERNATIONAL RUGBY: Luxembourg Travels to Greece

Luxembourg v Greece in Athens

Venue: Olympic Stadium

Referee: Csaba Priskin (Hungary)

Greece is in the leading group of three teams in this competition. Israel is the only team undefeated. Bulgaria leads the table with Greece one point behind. A win to Greece will take it to the top of the competition.

Greece will announce its team on Friday. Coach Olivier Magne (former French test player) will be without wing Fiotakis, captain for the game v Finland, due to injury. Number eight Phillipos Sotiriadis will captain the side.

Luxembourg is well off the pace but is not in danger of relegation. The wooden spoon belongs to Finland. The Duchy will field one new player, Christophe Balthazard.
