Madagascar v Botswana live https://www.facebook.com/mufuliraleopar ... 050632633/

The score is 19-0, I think the speaker said
So Madagascar must have scored three tries in nine minutes

26-5 now, near the end of the first half

62-18 the final score

Nine tries for the Makis and two for Botswana, I think

Ivory Coast-Senegal 25-21 (HT: 7-13)

Sorry for Senegal, two close losses
Algeria-Ivory Coast, Zambia-Madagascar will be, basically, two semifinals
At the bottom Botswana is relegated, if I recall correctly the laws of the tournament

Madagascar 5, Zambia 5, Algeria 5, Ivory Coast 4, Algeria 4, Senegal 2, Botswana 0

I expect it was already posted, but the final between the two first placed teams is scheduled for August 25th obviously venue to be decided following the outcome of Saturdays games.

A rematch of last year's Bronze Cup final.

I would be happy to see either side make the Gold cup. Algeria could be good though. They would be the highest performing non world rugby member then I guess? At least in terms of regional competition level

Any idea/proof as to the venue? Is there a formula? Like who got the most points in their pool?

Knowing Rugby Africa, the advantage will always go to the Northern African team.

Mufulira showed to be a good venue, while Algeria opted for a french hosting city; so it would be fair to award the organization of the duel to Zambia.
Moreover, I think that Zambia won its pool with the same points of Algeria (9) but with a better points difference

The Algeria Rugby Federation say it will "probably be at Algiers", although this may be more founded in hope!

Quick question. With the move in South America to establish a continental professional league that is said to be partly backed by World Rugby. What would the chances of something similar occurring in Africa?

I've thought about this possibility. The best cities for the development of African rugby would probably be Windhoek, Harare, Antananarivo, Kampala and Nairobi on one side, and Abidjan, Dakar, Tunis, Algiers and one of Morocco's major cities on the other. The teams could play home-and-away in their own conferences, and then one game against each team of the other conference.

South Africa could also be involved, but they wouldn't need this kind of championship as much as Argentina.

I was thinking more along the lines of two conferences of 4 teams playing the same set up you suggested for 10 games to start and then building from there. I don't know if Namibia would be all that interested considering they currently have a team in the SuperSport Challenge but if they were that would be fine. I could only see SA involvement being more along the lines of technical support rather than an active participants. Which would be fine in itself.

I think WR if they are in fact investing in the Sth American League has set somewhat of a precedent here. And they should be looking to emulate that in other regions in efforts to get things going. Providing more players from more nations with more opportunities to participate in more regular and consistently higher (and hopefully improving) competition can only benefit the game moving forward.

It certainly would be tough. No disputing that. Sort of why if it were ever to happen it should be split into two geographically focused conferences.

I think the better option in the medium term would be to get at the southern African nations teams into the South Africa competition along with the Namibia Welwitschias. North Africa is a bit more problematic.

Final minutes of Algeria v Ivory Coast; in the beginning seconds you may see also a photographer trying to follow the speedy algerian counterattack but falling on the ground :)

Early scores. Pretty sure it's the first time South Africa meet Burkina or Namibia meet Benin in rugby

Afrique du Sud 38 - 0 Burkina Faso
Namibie 51 - 0 Bénin
Sénégal 24 - 12 Tunisie
Maroc 5 - 10 Côte d'Ivoire
Afrique du Sud 37 - 5 Algérie
