The Czech Republic have secured the European Bowl for the second consecutive year by defeating Hungary 42-16. The match was played in front of an enthusastic Vrchlabi crowd of 500 who roared with approval and chanted Ceski-Ceski as the home team opened magnificently, utterly dominating the visitors for the first 20 minutes of the match. During that period the Czech forwards constantly drove the Hungarians backwards with dominant running and the result was two tries each from prop Jiri Sluka and hooker Petr Sedina.

BARLA Youth to strong and experienced for Czech Youth

Press Release, Date: 1/7/12

The Czech Republic started their historic national teams representative weekend disappointingly, with the Czech Youth team being thoroughly outplayed by the far more experienced BARLA (British Amateur Rugby League Association) Youth in Beroun, and suffering a 70-0 point loss as a result.

The Czech team – made up of under 20 players from the domestic Czech Championship, the majority of whom are playing their 1st season of any form of rugby – were totally outplayed by a far more highly skilled & rugby league savvy group of young English players. The 1st half reflected the fact that not only were most of the Czech players deficient in some of the basic rugby skills and knowhow, but that they were also totally overwhelmed by the occasion, and the physicality of the opposition. The result was a half-time score of 52-0 to BARLA.
