The 32 players squad list for the match vs Russia was revelead yesterday, that has started the training camp in Madrid

Some important absences, all players from Bayonne and Pau in Top14, but better than expected considering the calendar. Some young and interesting additions as Ortiz, Barrios and Periel. Great to see the comeback of Afa Tauli and John-Wessel Bell. Mainly players playing in the domestic championship (20 out of 32) and even one, Diego Periel, playing in second division.
Not the best team possible but still competitive and ready to face the key match vs Russia.

Good to see Koelman playing for the Netherlands.
He was in Tigers U18, but turned down a contract to play in NZ before moving to France

It's looking like RWC 2023 Qualifying is getting pretty competitive... Portugal, Romania and Russia or Spain all start 2022 in a close race for Europe 2 (direct qualification) and Europe 3 (repechage)

Final table IF there are 3 more big (33 point + BP) losses for the Netherlands, and a winner in the other game in hand (Spain) vs Russia (assuming a 7 point margin)...

23, PD +80 Georgia
14, PD +57 Portugal
14, PD +24 Romania
13, PD +5 Russia ____ (or 11, PD +14 Spain)
_8, PD +0 Spain _____ (or 10, PD _ -9 Russia)
0, PD -165 Netherlands

Romania have an edge with home advantage in 2022 (vs Georgia, Portugal and Russia), but not much margin for error. Drop 1 more game (other than Georgia), and while they'd still have good odds to qualify directly, it will depend on things outside their control.
Spain also have more home advantage (2021 Russia, 2022 vs Portugal and Romania), and if they finish 2021 well, they'll only have to catch up a few more points in 2022. A 3-win 3rd place finish in the 2022 season could easily be enough to make repechage.


very contrived hypothetical scenarios after 2022, for illustration: (assumes 2022 wins are all by 8 points, no BPs)

2022 - 2022 Table -- Combined Qualifying Table (if Russia beats Spain in 2021)

5 Wins - 20, PD +40 -- 43, PD 120 Georgia --> RWC
4 Wins - 16, PD +24 -- 29, PD +29 Russia ----> RWC ----------> 3 table points spare. If they had a BP or better PD vs NL, they could afford a narrow loss to Portugal instead of a win. (won't happen, but that's outside of Romania's control)
3 Wins - 12, PD_ +8 -- 26, PD +32 Romania -> repechage
2 Wins - _ 8, PD _ -8 -- 22, PD +49 Portugal ----------------------> does not qualify, but only 1 win short. (see Russia above, or else Georgia could drop a game)
1 Win - __ 4, PD -24 -- 12, PD -24 Spain
0 Wins - _ 0, PD -40 -- _0, PD -205 Netherlands
2022 - 2022 Table -- Combined Qualifying Table (if Spain beats Russia in 2021)

5 Wins - 20, PD +40 -- 43, PD 120 Georgia --> RWC
4 Wins - 16, PD +24 -- 30, PD +48 Romania -> RWC
3 Wins - 12, PD_ +8 -- 23, PD +22 Spain ------> repechage --> and if they had 4 wins in 2022, they'd reach direct qualification, despite their 3 losses in 2021 to date. (until BPs etc. change things)
2 Wins - _ 8, PD _ -8 -- 22, PD +49 Portugal
1 Win - __ 4, PD -24 -- 14, PD -33 Russia
0 Wins - _0, PD -40 -- _0, PD -205 Netherlands
