Rugby League World Cup best 17s: Greece

Greece Rugby League Team 2022

Greece will make their long-awaited debut at the Rugby League World Cup in 2022 after a successful qualifying campaign.

It was a campaign which saw them first get the better of Norway in the Euro Division play off, before the Titans managed to overcome Serbia in the group stage. Although they fell to Scotland, the top two teams out of each team in the Euro qualifier would advance, with Ireland and Italy making it into the tournament out of the other group reports zerotackle.com.

The qualification means Steve Georgallis' side will make their debut at the tournament from an International Rugby League ranking position of 11.

Lumped into a tough group alongside hosts England, Pacific Island heavyweight and tournament dark horse Samoa, and the potentially more beatable, but still challenging French outfit, they will be relying on four NRL players to bring plenty of experience.
