Do you know some official free streaming about the three RWC-qualifying matches of the weekend (Can-Usa, Sen-Zim, Ken-Uga)?

PS: according to Rugbyinternational and Rugbydata this sunday Cameroon will "celebrate" six years since the last test match played. Congrats to the messing camerounese managers...

There is no complete list I found for Senegal but there are 25 Europe based players (from France, Ireland and Italy) as listed here, with 9 more home based players to add to the squad. It would seem all bar 2 of the 25 play in France

Liste des 25 joueurs "européens" du XV du Sénégal est la suivante :

Première ligne : Boubakar Diabira, Sadio Traoré, Jérémie Fickou, Antoine Laporte, Sékou Sakho

Seconde ligne : El hadji Babacounta Faye, Anthony Gomis, Omar Sy, Lamine Silla, Abou Sall

Troisième ligne : Khadim Cissé (Lyons Piacenza, Italy), Charles Ndiaye Préira, Fabrice Lewis Karaba, Karim Diallo (Monkstown, Ireland), Abdelkarim Fofana, Félix Mendy, Matthieu Boscaro, Mokhtar Sougoufara

3 Quarts : Cheikhou Dakfakha, Aldric Folliot, Georges Pompidou Mendy, Mamadou Ndiaye, Moussa Barry, Khalifa Niang, Jonathan Courtinard.

Some funy name for us - french. Omar Sy is a very famous french actor - I guess you might know him overseas as he is acting in US now.
And Georges Pompidou is a former french president ! I guess that's the firstname of Georges Pompidou Mendy. Quite surprising.
+ Mamadou N'Diaye is a famous senegal basketball player.

I must say, Zimbabwe have ommitted some very good players here. Tafadza Chitokwindo, Jaques Leitao, Andrew Rose and Sibanda are nowhere to be seen on

the team list. Sables4EVA, can you please clarify on this.

So has Africa effectively fallen in line with Americas and Europe with the six nations format moving forward?

Nah, the 6 team format is only for this year, and starting from next year, It will be a four team format for RWC qualifications.

Teams will actually be playing to stay on the high table and avoid a boot to the Silver Cup.

But not working for me, maybe you need a Facebook account login :?

Anyway, Twitter updates at https://twitter.com/senegal_rugby?lang=en

Zim opened the scoring with a penalty in the 18th minute.

No. The winner of the 2018 RA Gold cup qualifiers for the RWC. Number 6 from this year gets relegated while number 1 form the lower division gets promoted so they also stand a chance to qualify for the RWC. Number 2 of the 2018 RA Gold Cup goes to the repechage.

If next year is a 4 team format then both number 5 and 6 will be relegated and there will be no promotion from the lower division then. RA can do strange things at times. It makes more sense having a 6 team format - more expensive but much fairer.

Okay, wikipedia said that it was this season that qualified. So these games don't affect RWC qualifying (other than that someone will go down)?
