17, 20 and 23 should be the correct dates. Quite often the period of these tournaments is calculated starting one day before the beginning of the games and finishing one day after the end; maybe because they see it like a fest, like an event, and they count also the inauguration-day when they receive the athletes from abroad and the farewell-day when the abroad players leave the country. Maybe.

The Guinea Conakry team left the country for Sierra Leone's capitol city freetown on board of a van. In the photos they published I counted just 16 or 17 players, but also Sierra Leone in the first leg of the duel seemed having more or less that amount of players. The test match is tomorrow, sunday

Result: Sierra Leone 6-26 Guinea.

The vehicle they travelled in would be better described as a minibus rather than a van :-)

Maghreb Tri-Nations dates:
Morocco - Tunisia on 17 December
Algeria - Tunisia on 20 December
Morocco - Algeria on 23 December

Great news about the Silver Cup! It will have 2 regional groups with teams playing home or away. And a final between South and North.

So we'll have:

Gold: Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tunisia and Morocco
Silver North: Ivory Coast, Senegal and Algeria
Silver South: Madagascar, Botswana and Zambia
Bronze: Ghana, Lesotho, Mauritius and Rwanda

Sad to see Nigeria out. A huge country, former British Empire, that can't develop rugby....

And there are Guinea, Sierra Leone and Central Africa between the possible Regional Competition's teams. It's the first time, I think to remember

The 2018 map (the nations in yellow are just supposed to play in the regional competitions, I doubt they all will be able to do it)

Regional 2018 is only sevens, I think. One date only.

You must be right, I hadn't noticed it. This would explain also because some nations (Algeria, Ivory Coast, Lesotho and Rwanda) play both in Silver/Bronze Cup and in the Regional competition

A part those of probably-still-suspended Nigeria and Cameroon, a notable absence is the one by Tanzania, once (some decades ago) a relatively good rugby nation. An article of ten months ago by Rugby Afrique explained that just two clubs remain active at senior level in Tanzania: one in Arusha and one in Dar-es-Salaam, both with more expats than local players. So we can deduce that Tanzania Rugby Union has almost no enough players to form a XV national team

Maghreb 3N live on tv

Morocco is leading 11-9 vs Tunisia, I think they must already in the second half
https://www.facebook.com/oujdawebtv/vid ... 950821714/

...

I missed the end. Morocco was leading 17-16 (one try each) but when I opened the video again the match was ended. Some disappointed comments by moroccan viewers lead to think that Morocco lost, or at least that it was a bad game

Eventually Morocco defeated Tunisia 17-16
These Maghreb Tri-Nations matches are always super-tight. The three games of the past editions all finished with a difference of one or two points in the score, I think to remember

In Ouagadougou, the club champion of Mali won 31-10 against the club champion of Burkina Faso; it was the second edition of TIREC, Trophee International du Rugby du le Equipes Champions (or something similar)

After the first half Algeria was leading 17-3 against Tunisia, if I've heard correctly. The match should have finished but I haven't found the final score

Algeria won 36-13. Game was live here https://www.facebook.com/LaGazetteDuFennec/

Algeria should easily beat Morocco on Sunday. They will take 6 points in the rankings in only two matchs.

But Algeria isn't in the rankings yet ! How will it work ?

They are not yet a member of World Rugby. This could take a while, but I can see full membership in the foreseeable future.

The absence of a local championship is the biggest problem on the way to a World Rugby membership, I suppose.
Once they received that membership, they could aspire to play in the World Cup considering that they are able to defeat with a certain largeness a Gold Cup team like Tunisia

Year in year out, Namibia always ensure that their toughest opponents always play in Windhoek. In a nutshell, they always ensure that they are hosting Zimbabwe and Kenya. The last time the Welschwistas were in Nairobi was in 2006. Surely, when will this nonsense end? We have always talked about it, but our cries fall on deaf ears. In all sports competitions, for fairness to be achieved, Home and Away fixtures are put, so that each team gets a chance to visit the other. In Africa's case, Namibia only travel to the weakest opponents in the Gold Cup.
