Inaugural Czech season set for opening

The opening games in the first Czech Rugby League National Championship kick off on Sunday (7th June) in Olomouc, around 250 kilometres east of Prague.

The country’s three leading sides; Hanacky RLFC Praslavice, Pardubice Jets and Beroun Black Panthers will compete in a round-robin tournament at the TJ Lokomotiva Olomouc ground.

Hosts Praslavice begin as tournament favourites, with a squad drawn largely from a nearby Czech army base and featuring many of the Moravian players who beat Bohemia 48-32 in the recent ‘State of Origin’ clash.
