Greece is the first rugby league Champion of the Balkan! The Helens at the Championship in Belgrade, in the final, won Serbia from 50-22 (18-12) and so deservedly reached this historic triumph. Although Serbia was considered a mild favorite before the competition, primarily due to better rankings on the World and European ranking list, this defeat can not be described as unexpected, as the Greeks came in an extremely strong composition, with most players from Australia.
