At halftime Tunisia 19 - 3 Senegal, now 26 - 8 in the 2nd half.

Senegal trying to fight back late in the game: Tunisia 26 - 20 Senegal with at least a few minutes to play. Or maybe it's 26 - 18 thanks to typical score confusion!

Well 26 - 18 appears to be the final score.

Finally, those useless Senegalese have been relegated to the Silver cup. Let them go bite, pinch and kick people there. We can't stand such nonsense in Africa's top tier level. Rugby should be played with decorum, and not the way those idiotic savages play the beautiful game. All I can say is good riddance. :thumbup:

I take it Tunisia Senegal didn't end in the mass punch up it did last year?

Uganda is already in full squad. Zimbabwe is far from this. Tunisia were only in the last two games. Senegal only the first and last. Uganda have no chance against Namibia. They are vastly outmuscled in the forwards.

Uganda really have come a long way in a short time. Zimbabwe, well, I just wonder what would have happened had they qualified for 2015. One try could have made a massive change to the game in that country.

I still believe Zimbabwe have the talent & potential if they can get it right. They have tonnes of professional players worldwide (mostly in SA) & their local rugby scene is also full of talent. But for the past 2 years, they have been doing the same sh*t & expecting a favorable result. How can you know about next years fixtures before hand & you cannot manage to get professionals on time? trying to jell-up a week before gold cup against sides that have been in camp for months? That's totally undermining the opponents. If the union cannot secure serious sponsorship on time, then Zimbabwe is as good as dead. Rugby is about fitness, S/C & lots of test matches. Miracles are hard to come by.

ZRU will call his very impressive foreign army next year to have a shot against Namibia.
