Order restored in Europe - just

19 Feb 2017
Russia got last minute try to beat Belgium 25 - 18, Romania just ahead of Spain 13 - 3, while Georgia cut down Germany by 50 - 6. Georgia look to be in a class of their own, while Spain still viewing third place.
Beautiful display by Portugal against the Eastern heavyweights, this time Poland. Poles chopped down in the pack and sliced open in the backs with some lovely creative moves. 35 - 10 to Portugal, probably with a promotion final against the Netherlands. My bet on Portugal.

14 Feb 2017
Top level is of course the Six Nations and it has got off to a cracking start with England coming from behind twice in the last few minutes to beat France and Wales. Joint favourites Ireland stumbled at the first fence against Scotland but came back to outclass Italy in a superlative display.

SRF närmar sig årsmötet (avgrunden?)

13 Feb 2017
Svenska Rugbyförbundet (SRF) har ett styrelsemöte i helgen, kanske det sista före årsmötet i mars. Det som kännetecknat SRFs verksamhet under ledning av ordförande Madeleine Lahti har varit att ett absolut minimum av information tillhandahållits rugbysverige. Detta gäller inte minst ekonomiska frågor där det för närvarande cirkulerar rykten om ohederlighet och inkompetens hos ordförande och andra som är mycket alarmerande. Sådana rykten är naturligtvis en följd av att styrelsen inte svarar på frågor eller redovisar information.
