Europe Conf. 1 North: Ukraine - Luxemburg 24 - 13
Ukraine got a fright as Luxemburg were only 13 - 17 down and pressing hard towards the end. Ukraine pulled themselves together and got the decider with five minutes to go. Neither side world-beaters but both probably too strong for the Swedish selected troupe of 43.
Europe Trophy: Lithuania - Czechia 30 - 10
Lithuania looking good and could be challenging for the Trophy. Czechia continuing the Eastern decline, with two defeats in a row.
Europe Conf. 2 North Finland - Denmark 22 - 18
Very positive result for Finland. Denmark seem also to be in a bad way.
Ladies Trophy : Finland - Switzerland 5 - 20
Switzerland just a bit sharper, with Czechia the only other team taking part. Why isn´t Sweden in this tournament? They are stronger than these two teams.
Junior Vikings: Czechia U18 - Sweden JV ? - 23 Sweden won!
Don´t know the exact score, but Sweden put up an excellent display in the first half to lead 20 - 0. They really looked as if they had been properly coached and played with a bit of “jävla anamma”. Well done Andy and others, as well as the players of course. I hope Sweden are entering for the European U18 XV-a-side in the Spring.
