Preview : Defining Weekend in the 2024 Conference

There are three men’s Rugby Europe Conference 2023/24 matches taking place on Saturday.

First up at 2pm local time (11am UTC) at the Tsirio Stadium in Limassol, Cyprus are hosting Malta in a Pool D match.

When these two sides met in the Tony Bezzina Football Stadium in Malta back in November, the hosts came out on top 22-17, so we can expect another close match here with Cyprus looking for revenge.

Next up at 2pm local time (12pm UTC), Pool A then takes centre stage as Norway host Andorra.

Latvia have already finished top of this five-team group and currently Norway are bottom on zero points from two games with Andorra fourth on five points from two games.

The final match on this busy Saturday comes at 4pm local time (1pm UTC) when Moldova and Bulgaria meet in the Dinamo Stadium in Chisinau.

This is a Pool C clash and is the most important of the weekend because it will decide who ends up topping the four-team section an progress to the play-off.

To date, Moldova have won in Türkiye 33-14 and at home to Serbia 31-11 to sit in first place on nine points.

Bulgaria also have nine points and are second only via points difference after a 40-24 home victory over Türkiye and then a 30-7 triumph over Serbia also at home.

This game looks to be a tight one to call and could go right to the wire.

Luxembourg have already earned a home semi-final for promotion to the play-off and will face the winner of Moldova v Bulgaria, unless the game finishes in a draw, in which case Latvia will then play Luxembourg. 

All three games will be available to watch on
