The Spanish men’s team, who start their Rugby Europe campaign this weekend against the Netherlands, have announced their squad for the coming fixtures.
Los Leones remain in contention for Rugby World Cup qualification, currently sitting in fourth place in the competition, with two automatic tickets for the top two teams after this year’s tournament and a Qualifier at the World Rugby Global repechage for third place.
The game will be at the National Stadium at Complutense University of Madrid and will be broadcast on rugbyeurope.tv and Teledeporte in Spain.
The national coach, Santiago Santos, together with his staff, have drawn up a list of 31 players to prepare for this match in Guadalajara.
The team features names such as Fernando López, Marco Pinto, Manu Mora, Victor Sánchez, Guillaume Rouet, Julen Goia and Jordi Jorba, along with young talents such as Guillemo Moretón, Joel Merkler, Asier Usarraga and Sergio Molinero.
Ahead of the match against the Netherlands there will be a tribute to the much-missed Kawa Leauma.
Following Saturday’s game they then travel to Russia and await Romania and Portugal, also in Madrid.
