Germany announced their intention to regain their Affiliate membership of the RLEF with a 16-32 win over the rapidly rising Spanish team in Valencia. Spain will be hoping to dust themselves down quickly ahead of their second home fixture in as many weeks, in what will be their toughest challenge to date, with 26th ranked Spain hosting 12th ranked Italy in Alicante.
Meanwhile, a little further north, Denmark will be hosting Norway in the second round of the Nordic Cup and may be able to take the cup home if they manage to follow up their defeat of Sweden in the first round with another victory.
Addendum: Spain v Italy has now been postponed.
