For South Africa to win the 2013 Rugby Championship they need to defeat New Zealand in Johannesburg next Saturday and score a bonus point. New Zealand need a win or a draw.
New Zealand’s bonus point win over Argentina has placed them in a good position to retain the Rugby Championship. Australia’s loss to South Africa will mean they face Argentina in Rosario next weekend to avoid the competition ‘Wooden Spoon’.
Finland dragged itself off the bottom of ENC 2D with a bonus point win over the visiting Greek side in Turku up the road from Helsinki.
Estonia announced it is ready for their entry into the ENC competition defeating Finland ‘A’ also in Turku.
