Interesting Ivory Coast backrow
6- Évrard Oulai (Bayonne - ProD2)
7- Paul Diallo (Nantes - Federale1)
8- Bakary Meite (Stade Français - Top14)
so, what does that mean then? Switzerland was heavily favoured considering world rankings and home advantage. Is there any chance CIV will be able to field those guys in more important games?

According URU, communications between the two unions has been going on and a few things are left to be dealt with to clear the stage for the first European side to play in Kampala since the England Counties in 2011. "It’s not yet confirmed but probably by next week,” URU C.E.O Ramsey Olinga told Daily Monitor last week.
When asked what was delaying the approval, Olinga said all was set here and only a thumbs up from Czech Republic was pending.
"We are yet to receive a confirmation from the other side,” he explained.

No more news about the supposed and never-happened-before tour of Czech Republic in Madagascar. According to articles published by malagasy newspapers at the end of autumn, the czechs had to play against Madagascar's top club and Madagascar national team on february 21 and 25, the same days of the likewise supposed tour in Uganda. Something must have gone wrong somewhere in this pastiche. No traces of incoming activity for the national team on czech federation website http://www.rugbyunion.cz/cs/
