Test Result: Malta 9, Sweden 6

This was an ENC Division 2B fixture as well as a Rugby World Cup 2011 Europe Round 3 qualifying game. Malta upset the form book by winning away on a rainy day in Stockholm. The controversy surrounding their Australia Rugby League player Jarrod Sammut, who was stood down for this game, may well have had an inspiring effect on his team mates. One account reports that it was a poor game of rugby. Slovenia remains undefeated in this division, just one point behind Hungary who has played an extra game.
