2008–2010 European Nations Cup Second Division

The European Nations Cup Second division 2008-2010 is the second tier of the European Championship for developing Rugby Union nations.

It is made up of two divisions with 5 teams in each division. Due to changes in the structure of the European Nations Cup for the 2010-2012 competition, no team will be relegated from Division 2A or 2B. The winner of Division 2A gets promoted to Division One and the winner of Division 2B will get promoted to Division 2A.

The leader of Division 2B at the end of the 2008-2009 season, and the champion of Division 2A at the end of the competition, will have the opportunity to participate in qualification for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The former champions of Division 2A were Germany who have been replaced by the relegated Czech Republic. Poland won Division 2B and were promoted to Division 2A in place of the Netherlands. Sweden was promoted from Division 3A to replace the relegated Andorra.

Famous quotes containing the words cup, division, nations and/or european:

    I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man: wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea! Ah, how low I fall when I am tempted by them! Even music may be intoxicating. Such apparently slight causes destroyed Greece and Rome, and will destroy England and America.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    God and the Devil are an effort after specialization and the division of labor.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    All nations love the same jests and tales, Jews, Christians, and Mahometans, and the same translated suffice for all.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It has become necessary to call the attention of European governments to a fact which is apparently so insignificant that the governments seem not to notice it. The fact is this: an entire people is being annihilated. Where? In Europe. Are there witnesses? One witness, the entire world. Do the governments see it? No.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
