Rugby Match: Kazakhs at home to Koreans

Kazakhstan v Korea in Almaty (Asia5Nations)

Kazakhstan began the 2009 Asia5Nations with a big loss to Japan. Another tests awaits them when Korea, fresh from a 65-0 win over Singapore last weekend, arrives in Almaty. Last year the Koreans won 40-21 in Seoul but I would expect a much closer result on Saturday.

Previous Encounters
17.05.2009 Korea 40-21 in Seoul (Asia5Nations)
20.10.2003 Korea 45-19 in Seoul

GWC Rugby Rankings: Asia Table-Korea 2nd, Kazakhstan 4th

Prediction: Korea by 9 points

Teams not available


  1. Well what an upset. I predicted Korea by 9 points. According to the match report on Asia 5 Nations web site all points scored by Kazakhstan's 2 top players-Rudoy 3 tries and Lifantov 3c and 3pg.

  2. Krasnoyarsk veterans Rudoy and Lifontov showed an excellent game!!!
