As the domestic season takes it's winter break and ahead of the new era for South Wales Ironmen in Merthyr for 2017 and beyond, the Welsh team have some important fixtures coming up. These should help keep interest in the XIII a side code high for fans in South Wales and beyond.
WALES RL v SERBIA at PARC STEBONHEATH in LLANELLI on Saturday 15TH October 2016 - Kick off is now at 3pm (changed from the originally announced 6pm) in the first match in Wales' 2017 World Cup qualifying campaign.
Tickets are priced from £10 for adults, £8 concessions and £5 for children. Seats from £12 for adults. Group discounts and family tickets are also available.
Just reading how Tyson Frizzle is apparently Australian AND Welsh.
Seems you can play for both a tier 1 and a tier 2 country - presumably not against each other!!!!
I can see the reason to be "loose" with nationality rules for tier 2 nations, but I would have thought any switch should be irreversible so you should not be able to flit between two nations. I do not think this effective duel nationality gives the international game a lot of credibility.

33-year-old former Stade Francais and Racing Metro centre Mirco Bergamasco currently plays for Sacramento Express - they are a professional American rugby union team that play in the newly formed PRO Rugby competition. He has been selected for the Italian RL team.
I cannot see that Mirco has ever played the XIII a side game.
Hopefully he'll get confused at play the ball and when the ball goes over the touchline.
