TEST RUGBY RESULTS: Saturday 17 July

New Zealand 31, South Africa 17 in Wellington (Tri Nations)
Uruguay 44, Kazakhstan 7 in Montevideo (WCQ Repecharge 1)
Romania 56, Tunisia 13 in Buzau (WCQ Repecharge 2)
Kenya 23, Zimbabwe 18 in Harare (Victoria Cup)
Niger v D.R.Congo in Niamey (Africa Trophy, North)
Burkino Faso v Mali in Niamey (Africa Trophy, North)

New Zealand repeated last weekend's ruthless display against South Africa and again handed the Springbox their second defeat in New Zealand. South Africa now play Australia in Brisbane next weekend and I can feel the Wallaby knives sharpening already. A third loss next weekend will be a disaster for South African rugby. And again a yellow card against South Africa in the fourth minute swung the game away towards New Zealand as the Kiwis pilled on 10 points in 10 minutes. The South African's never really recovered.

Uruguay and Romania will meet in the Playoff final to determine who fills the last World Cup 2011 finals spot. Both had easy wins.

Kenya remain undefeated in the first year of the Victoria Cup.

  1. Hi RugInt - please note I think the Congo in the Niger tournament is the Republic of Congo (Congo-Brazzaville) not the DRC which is ex-Zaire.
