RUGBY TEST MATCH: Serbians Travel to Abovian

Serbia v Armenia in Abovian (ENC 3A)


Referee: Tomas Tuma (Czech Republic)



In this level of competition it's a question of who will be relegated now that Lithuania are in a clear lead. All four other teams are in danger of relegation although Serbia is in least danger. Until today that is! It has been a topsy turvy right old battle between the four teams. There has been unexpected victories and unbelievable defeats. Both today's sides must win!

Serbia' situation does not look good for today's game. They are travelling with only twenty players and they face and Armenian team difficult to defeat at home and buoyed by their 26-17 win over Andorra last weekend.

It's going to be a right old ding dong encounter.
