Georgian Black Lion easily beat Spanish Iberians in the first semi. Tel Aviv pull off an upset to win in Lisbon in the other one.

Highlights of the final.



The end of Tier2 for 2022. What a year to be a shvili!

What was the penalty try and yellow card for?
From looking at it again it looks like the Tel Aviv winger tackles/pushes a man without the ball, which makes that player fall into the ball carrier and dislodge the ball to prevent a certain try.

Good for the BL and the Heat did not shame themselves in the final. Batumi did reasonably and Romanian Wolves can improve sharply with the available player pool.

Everything on the field seems relatively positive. But off the field I think this was an extremely disappointing season by almost any metric. There were lower crowds despite Covid restrictions being lifted this season. Strangely the Dutch and Belgians, with less to cheer about, seem to have more fan interest.

Lots and lots of hard work to do to secure a long term future for the competition. Some do not think much of the MLR but they were way ahead of the RESC in year two in terms of crowds, viewing figures and (I would be very confident) sponsorship.
