South Africa caused the international rugby sensation of the weekend by defeating England 21-11. England, the heroes of the month are now back to the beginning after losing to a team that has been struggling all month. Congratulations South Africa. This results shows that consistency is going to win the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Neither of these two teams are up there yet.

New Zealand has been the most consistent team so far. Their 37-25 win over Wales hands them another Grand Slam. It wasn't a perfect display by the Kiwis. The Welsh fought as if their lives were at risk and worried the AB's throughout the game. So far, the New Zealanders are the most consistent side.

Elsewhere, France and Australia are locked together with Australia 20-16 ahead at the latest. Italy finally won a test match whilst Scotland scrambled past Samoa.

Romania are the final team to go to the 2011 Rugby World Cup. They brushed Uruguay aside 39-12 in Bucharest. The USA lost by 2 points to Georgia whilst Canada ended their tour with a win over Portugal. Spain's new look side got it right this weekend with a good win over Namibia.

Germany won easily over a young Netherlands team 29-10, whilst Rwanda were too strong for neighbours Burundi and won their test series 2-0.

Now December is nearly here and sadly the international window closes. Keep posted as we explore the year that was and look forwards to 2011, the BIG year. Hong Kong tours Europe also in December, so keep coming back for more.
