The British and Irish Lions started the test series against Australia win a nail-biting win in Brisbane. Poor goal kicking cost the Aussies a win. The Lions held on grimly towards the end as the Australian scrum put pressure on their much acclaimed rival scrum. It was a great game to watch. The second test is in Melbourne next Saturday.

New Zealand wrapped up their 3 test series against France. The Kiwis didn’t dominate until the last quarter. Up to then the French were very competitive and asked searching questions of the New Zealand forwards in particular.

South Africa scotched all previews and played their best rugby this year (in fact for some time) with a 56-23 win over Samoa. Indiscipline cost the Samoans heavily.

Scotland gained a small measure of joy from the Quadrangular tournament in South Africa with a one-point win over Italy.

Argentina came away from their home clash against Georgia with a win whilst Kenya defeated Uganda with a 19-13 win away. Their 35-30 aggregate count saw them retain the Elgon Cup.

The USA South won the 2013 NACRA Caribbean Championship by defeating Trinidad Tobago away. They remained undefeated after starting the campaign back in January.

And finally Rwanda defeated Burundi at home 20-0 to take out the first leg at home.Tanzania and Swaziland pulled out of this CAR Division 2, South Tournament. The 2nd Leg date is yet to be set.
