THE SPANISH Rugby League has launched its new championship season and it is set to be their largest yet.
Last years champions Custodians Madrid will be joining the six-team Serie A, with each team playing 10 games and a playoff from November to May 2018.
“This year we will have an exciting and much more competitive league than in the past,” commented Aitor Dàvila, director of the national league.
“Everybody talks about the top three with Custodians, Tigres and Warriors as favourites for the title, but the level of all the teams is now much closer. Xativa, Ontinyent and Sedaví have become very strong.”
It is an exciting time for Spanish rugby with discussions under way for competitions in Malaga and Córdoba.
