Latvia - Luxembourg 31 - 24

22 Oct 2016
Pretty low standard, both teams well below the level faced by Sweden in recent years. Latvia dominated initially but poor finishing kept them down to three tries. Luxembourg had two chances and drove over from both to make it 19 - 12 at half time. Luxembourg came into it a bit more in the second half and closed to 26 - 24. With 10" to go the Latvian full back ran through a paper-thin defence for the final score. Five points to Latvia and two to Luxembourg. Sweden look to have a strong enough team to beat Luxembourg in two weeks time.

Här följer en någorlunda saklig redogörelse för var Sverige står internationellt. Jag börjar med 15-manna för att vid ett senare tillfälle behandla 7-manna.

When the smoke has cleared

Time to round off a great weekend for Exiles with a few more comments.

I think everyone agrees that pride of place goes to the Ladies who took their first title since the golden period 2004 – 2007. The Göteborg dominance has extended for such a time that people have perhaps forgotten that it is Exiles who have won most Swedish titles. This was the 10th while Göteborg in the meantime will have to remain on seven.

For the first time in ten years Exiles did the double with the girls pulling away in the last 15 minutes to beat Göteborg who had been dominant for almost a decade. The girls won the one-off final 38 – 17 to take their tenth title while the men in an excellent second final held off Pingvin for a closely fought 24 – 3 to add to their 17 – 0 in the first game. This is their 13th title and fifth in a row.

Newsflash! Men and Ladies both triumph!

Ladies shock Göteborg to win the one off final away from home. Mens final was a tough close game where. Pingvin dominated the first halv, but Exiles kept scoring from turnovers. Ian Gowland led the way with the first try. Final score 24-3.
