Well 'Swaziland' won't be taking part in any Africa Cup games any more!

Swaziland's King Mswati III has announced he is renaming the country as the Kingdom of eSwatini. The monarch announced the official change at Golden Jubilee celebrations for the 50th anniversary of Swazi independence.

The celebrations also marked the monarch's 50th birthday. The southern African nation is an absolute monarchy.

I totally agree, half of those teams won't even participate.

Good, I hope the Welschwistas will record a good scoreline as they are playing at home.

Top 6 Ocean Indien, last pools' round

Etang Sale (Reu) v Manjakaray (Mad) 14-13
St.Paul (Reu) v Forces Armée (Mad) 25-34

Ranking
Pool A: Force Armees 15*, St.Paul 14*, Mayotte 0
Pool B: Etang Salé 15, Manjakaray 13, Highland Blues 0

* Not calculating the eventual bonus point conquered today

So the final is Etang Salé (La Reunion) against, probably, Forces Armée (Madagascar)

Rugby Afrique redesigned its website, now it's more surfable I think: the "Competitions" drop-down-menu offers immediately a glance to all the continental tournaments of the last four seasons http://www.rugbyafrique.com

Rugby seems disappeared in Seychelles, the last google proper reference is related to a 2005 tour in Nairobi, where the Seychelles senior and junior teams weren't able to score a point (against powerful opponents, to say the truth) http://www.nation.sc/article.html?id=210868
There are no fresh rugby news neither from Cape Verde and Comoros, other archipelagos where some years ago rugby was played.

I searched a list of african countries and the one ranked by population is quite scaring: every year there are 30 millions more inhabitants in Africa! Half of Italy's population. Or four Switzerlands :|
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_A ... population

Bagarre in Oujda (Morocco) during the final of a junior tournament, with the supporters invading the pitch. Or I'm getting old and grumpy or these episodes are becoming too frequent https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php? ... 2283257478

And that, it seems is because the Ugandan twitter has two games against them on the 16th and 19th of this month. Supposedly Free State Cheetahs trials.

Just a note about the Africa Bronze Cup in Ghana.

Despite what a lot of the publicity is saying, it's being played in the town of Elmina - which is 156km along the coast from Accra.

Non related to rugby. Elmina is a historical city. There is a Portuguese castle of the 15th Century, the first European settlement in the region. Elimina comes from the Portuguese name São Jorge da Mina I believe.

I just discovered Nigeria is suspended by World Rugby (did not know that) but they seem to be reorganizing their Union http://www.punchng.com/nigeria-top-prio ... y-afrique/

Not sure about current situation of Cameroon.

Yes, Rugby Afrique corrected it a while after it was originally posted. What would a game be without total confusion over the scoring!
