Lebanon 71, Jordan 3 in Beriut
Iran v Jordan in Beriut
These teams have never met in a test rugby international before. Iran was playing Asia Nations Division 2 last season, way above the standard of both Jordan and Lebanon.
Prediction: Iran by 93 points: Score 95-3
Lebanon v Iran
The change of date for this tournament snuck up on me. Lebanon outclassed Jordon on the first day. Iran is expected to be too strong for Jordan on the second day setting up a ‘grand final’ between the hosts and Iran Saturday.
Qatar pulled out of this tournament changing the format.
ARC Division 3 is split into West and East tournaments. These nations do not qualify for Rugby World Cup qualification matches.
