Austria v Bulgaria in Pernik (WCQ Europe R1; ENC 2C)


Referee: Gia Amirkhanashvili (Georgia)

Bulgaria is a new team to this ENC division. They began with a narrow 5 point loss to Hungary in Hungary 6 October. Nothing is known about their team for today’s rugby test match.

Austria’s last game was a loss to Norway 6-11 away. Norway were eventually relegated. The Austrians played a friendly warm-up against Czech club RC JIMI Vyskov on the 6th October winning 45 - 7.

I will predict Austria to win. A year ago they thumped Hungary 38-7. They are certainly a better team than their loss to Norway in May.
