RRC 2011-12 Semifinals – draw

At the RRC Board meeting home teams for semifinals were drawn.

After a lot of mixing and spining of crumpled pieces of paper in the cup, Marko Kapor drew the winner of the match 31 (RK Nada Split – RK Ljubljana) to host the semi-final against the winner of the match 34 (Esztergomi Vitézek RSE – RC Donau Wien). After that thrilling moment, Jure Makhota pulled out a crumpled piece of paper with the number 32 from the cup and thus determined that the winner of the match 32 (RK Pobednik Belgrade – Battai Bulldogok RC) will be the host of the second semi-final against the winner of the match 33 (RK Zagreb – RK Čelik Zenica).
All the matches of quarter finals, except the match Nada – Ljubljana should be played at 17th and the 18th March, and the date of the match Nada – Ljubljana will be determined after synchronization with the match of the Slovenian national team in the European Nations Cup.

Quarterfinal and semifinal draw is available in Match center at Fixtures and Results (Play-Offs) section.

Beke from KARC is holding second place with 29 points (2 tries, 5 conversions and 3 penalties) and he managed to score points in every game played.
