TEST RUGBY: Sweden Wins Viking Tri Nations

Sweden 18, Norway 7 in Bergen (Tri Nations)

The score line was a lot closer than I predicted. We know the Swedish side was without a number of top players. Sweden wins the trophy but a good showing by Norway who are placed well below Sweden in the rankings.

Norway: 1 try ( Tirikula ) + 1 conversion
Sweden: 2 tries ( Arvidsson, Murphy), 1 conversion, 2 penalties.

‘Norway played very well today, and managed to face Sweden almost until the end. Norway has maybe a fitness issue that they must fix if they want to be able to hold them for 80 minutes, otherwise, we saw a better Norwegian rugby today, That's encouraging for the match against Denmark that will count double: both for European Nations Cup and Viking Tri-Nations. For both, the coming game will be to avaoid the last place’.
