After defeating from England, Serbia is turning to a match with Ukraine. In this game Serbian “White Eagles” are favorites, but this has to be confirmed on the field. It will not be easy, especially since a big heat is expected on Wednesday.
Brett Davidson associated head coach: “We understand where we stand in the Rugby League world at the moment, the score line didn’t reflect the pride & passion the guys displayed. Utmost respect to the English side, they are a quality outfit, we are improving every day & the future is bright for Serbia, we are looking forward to the next game against Ukraine & displaying everything we have been training for. It takes time for a side to gel & we can feel something special brewing here.
Matt Dragišić player: It was an honor to debut for Serbia against England, having my family there to watch & knowing my grandfather would have been extremely proud. England is one of the favorites to win the tournament & showed why against us. We are now focused on the next two matches & know we will be more competitive with each game & finish the tournament on a high”.
Daniel Marjanović player:
“It was an emotional game for me to represent Serbia & follow in my
brother’s footsteps. I am honored to be a part of this team, the
friendships & bonds we are building has been amazing & I can’t wait for
the game against Ukraine. We have played one game together & with each game we will only get better”.
