Test match: Russia v Romania

Russia v Romania in Bucharest

The European Nations Cup 1st division is certainly warming up. Both these teams have played 2 matches for 2 wins, both top the table and both has a point difference of +31. This match is looking like being one of the key matches in this first round. Georgia is also undefeated but has a draw thrown in with its win. This match should be a cracker. Lets hope the weather is fine and a good crowd turns up.
