Uganda caused a major upset defeating their more fancied neighbours Kenya.

Denmark defeated Austria at home as did Luxembourg over Finland. Looks like Finland are destined for relegation.

In the Asia Division 1 World Cup qualifying tournament, The Philippines defeated Sri Lanka to gain promotion to Asia5Nations for 2013 and a shot at the big time in Asia rugby. Singapore were relegated to Division 2 for 2013 thus ending their World Cup qualifying hopes.

Cayman Islands defeated Mexico by a wide margin and thus gain entry into the NACRA Caribbean World Cup qualifying second round. I was surprised by the margin of loss by Mexico. Their World Cup dreams are over.
