#ETC18 Divisional Preview – Men’s 45

Men’s 45 Division – ETC18

Countries entered: England, France, Ireland, Wales, Scotland
Defending Champions: N/A

This is the first year that the Men’s 45s Division will be a fully capped and recognised division at the European Championships. The strength and depth of the division is demonstrated in the strong entries received; there is a lot of promise in this division with all teams indicating an intention to utilise the 2018 European Championships as a stepping stone to the 2019 Touch World Cup.

There are a number of players who have progressed from the successful M40 sides of Wales who have won the last two European Titles and from England who won a Bronze medal at the 2015 World Cup.

We are anticipating a very close race for the title with all countries entered having very strong programmes and levels of participating in overage divisions.

The M45 Round Robin taps off at 11.40am on Wednesday 18th of July on Field 1 – make sure you tune in to see Wales V France get things underway.

The Gold Medal match will be at 14:00 Saturday 21st July on Field 2.
