Sables have a player from LS1 playing for them this time around if they actually gave him the ball more we could see what he can do. Had the ball twice in 80 mins. First carry knocked out his opponent ( poor tackling tech) second one knocked on & Tunisia scored from it..

Germany (29) join Hong Hong (21) and  Canada (22) in the repecharge.

I believe Zimbabwe were found an alternative hotel after one night on the streets but still lost to Tunisia.

Amazingly, having lost 118-0 to Namibia, Tunisia's win means they are still mathematically in with contention.
They need Zimbabwe and Kenya to beat Namibia and to beat Uganda and Kenya.




I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

That hotel mess up probably ruined Zimbabwe-Rhodesia's chances of finishing second.

With Samoa just West of the Date line and Cook Islands just East, both games kicked off at 15:00 on Saturday, 23 hours apart.

Looking forward to seeing Samoa demolish their former colonial masters. 

Just don't mention the war! ;)

Speaking as a Cultural Geographer, an "Australian name" would have to be one of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Island descent. Given the names of several "Australian" sporting stars also comprise Tomic, Kyrgios, Kokkinakis, Gavrilova and Tomljanovic, the mind boggles what was meant by the comment an "Australian name".

This is a myth perpetuated by lazy journalists over the years. The facts tell a different story.


A well founded 'myth' - just wart he'd last weeks Super Rugby match - Queensland Reds only had 1 or 2 Australian names in their starting 15 - rest were of south sea island origin

I didn't realise Queensland Reds were a "national" team.

And what exactly is an "Australian name"?

Jacques Le Roux and Francisco Vieira ( still at Rotherham? i don't know)  in the match day squad for Portugal v Germany. Not sure on German squad yet but could feature Preocanin.

Now we have South Africans being targeted by the Scots, eventually qualifying through residency.

The whole system is a farce.

Why can you qualify via Grandparents? Should be restricted to Parents nationality.
Make the residency period 10 years to solve those moving to earn caps, this would still allow youngsters who move to other countries to qualify before they are too old.

Lets take Cameron Redpath. Say England cap him for 30 secs then discard him never to be seen again. For the rest of his career he is ineligible for competing for Scotland.


Appreciate that you used Cameron Redpath simply as a hypothetical example, but i do think that we'll see a lot of him in an England shirt.  Not necessarily this summer, but certainly in the future.



I agree and hope Cameron goes on to have a successful England career. It just seems crazy that you can spend 2 or is it 3 years in a country and suddenly you can play for that country under residence, but get one cap for a country and you are forbidden for your whole career from ever representing another that you may have been born in/have parents from.


I disagree. It means the player has to make a decision and stick with it. To have players chopping and changing countries makes a mockery of international teams. You may as well do away with International sides and just replace them with clubs.....something some Premiership teams would love to happen. 


Totally agree. Playing for your country should mean something and shouldn't just be playing for a country that is prepared to give you a cap.


I would agree, but ONLY if the big teams are stopped from sweeping up players from around the world through the residency ruling.

If players genuinely are eligible (strict birth or parents criteria) to play for more than one country I don't see why they should be stopped from doing so..with the proviso of a couple of years break between countries to ensure fairness


Then you don't agree with me!


fair enough...but the current system clearly needs looking at. Very clearly favours the 'big countries'
