A very busy weekend with other commitments meant that I could not cover any test rugby.

The Barbarians RFC began their 3 match programme with a loss to England. They play Ireland tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wales on Saturday.

Kazakhstan are relegated to Division1 for 2013. They will need to win that Division next year in order to be in qualification for a place at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Hong Kong and Korea finished their Asia Five Nations programme with good wins.

Argentina held their place at the top of the CONSUR table. Fielding basically their home-based team they were comfortable winners over Chile.

Brazil played well to hold Uruguay 15-20 until the Uruguayans scored a last minute try. A Brave display by the ever improving Brazilians.

Croatia held their place in ENC 2A for 2012-14 with a convincing win away.

Cyprus finished top of their Division 2D table with another crushing victory, this time over Greece. Also in 2D Bulgaria ended any hopes Finland had of staying in ENC 2D with a close win away.

The Cayman Islands continued on their winning way, defeating the Bahamas at home.
