Poland v Belgium in Brussels (ENC 1B)
Moldova v Netherlands in Amsterdam (ENC 1B)
Cayman Islands v Jamaica in Kingston (WCQ NACRA R1-North)
St Vincent-Grenadines v Barbados in Kingstown (WCQ NACRA R1-South)
Armenia v Andorra in Andorra La Vela (ENC 2B)
Poland and Belgium meet in Brussels but the outcome will not prevent Belgium from being promoted to ENC 1A for 2012-14. Even if both Poland and Moldova gain a maximum 10 points from their next two games they will not overhaul Belgium.
The Netherlands can’t avoid relegation to ENC 2A for 2012-14 no matter the result of their fixture against Moldova. I can’t help but be thinking of semi-finals and finals for these competitions. A definite result this far out from the end of the competition means a number of meaningless fixtures.
Armenia and Andorra meet in a Division 2B clash in Andorra. Again, Switzerland are likely to be promoted to ENC 2A for 2012-14, with Armenia an outsiders chance. They have four games in hand.
Cayman Islands, Jamaica, St Vincent & Grenadines and Barbados play in their regions in the first 2015 Rugby World Cup qualifying rounds.
Rugby is certainly a global game.
