Belgium find themselves again outside of the top four seedings but will be boosted by the experienced captaincy of Jonathan Payne and returning player Raf Van Bouchaute. Joining them are newcomers Simon Meirhaeghe and Marc Verzee.
Tough matches await Belgium in Group B, Ireland, Wales, Scotland & ROW will all be strong opponents and qualification into the Semi – finals will be a tall order. Jon has led them there before and he will be determined to do it again. This will prove to be a great experience for Simon & Marc and if they can pick up some wins then anything is possible.
