Havelock and Kandy are leading the Sri Lanka's championship ex aequo, 62 points each team, when just two rounds are missing. I think that there are no play-off, so the next weekend's match, Havelock v Kandy, will be basically a final for the title. It should be live on line
Today both the team have won but Havelock didn't catch the bonus point http://www.thepapare.com/dialogrugby/fixtures/

Just in the middle of its worst time in modern era, Syria is going to launch its first national rugby XV championship. Three teams competing (all from Damascus I think) from early march to may

31.10.2004 Macao vs Pakistan 55 - 0 Hong Kong City, HKG
22.05.2005 Macao vs Cambodia 46 - 7 Hong Kong City, HKG
15.06.2006 Indonesia vs Macao 10 - 17 Jakarta, INA

All three matches are friendlies. The match in 2004 against Pakistan was a friendly played at the Asian Championships. It was not part of the official championships.

In both the 2006 and 2007 Asian Nations Series tournaments, Macao was to play Qatar and one other nation (cant remember right now) in Division 7 however in both years, all three nations withdrew.


13.06.2008 Indonesia 17-17 Macau in Jakarta

Asia rugby, says the 2006 match was 22-10 to Macau.

Also, I have seen 55-3 for the Macau v Pakistan result on the old IRB site - http://web.archive.org/web/200411070444 ... /Fixtures/. Macau definitely won that game. The Macau link above from 2008 mentions that Macau were still undefeated.

Both Indonesia matches are mentioned as Indonesia Barbarians v Macau.
http://stiffchilli.com/stiffc/article/s ... ional_team

Misleading title here, as it goes on to describe a 17-17 draw.

http://www.rugbyinternational.net/news- ... 006-07.htm

Seems only the first 2 matches were internationals (Macau v Pakistan and Macau v Cambodia) - other 2 were not against Indonesia national team.

Uzbekistan 13 - 13 Iran

From Asia Rugby - I assume this to be the final score. 1 try for the hosts, 2 for Iran.

Iran are making a much better show of it this cf with last year. They got 'hammered', (well they lost anyway), last year by Uzbekistan but have performed strongly this year. Perhaps last year was a blip, as they showed distinct promise pervious years. It would be a pity if the system sees them relegated.

Ive picked Uzbekistan to win the 'final' today but I wont be surprised if Lebanon pulls this one off (Have I moxed the Lebanese with the forums curse?) :D


Very pleased to see Asia Rugby with match reports for this tournament with team lists and SUBS! Yahoo! :thumbup:

Macoocoo has live text coverage of all the Asian Rugby matches, and has done for a few years now.

http://macoocoo.com/index.php?r=group/d ... =1070&cid=

If you click on the little "information" icon at the right of each match, and then expand the "show videos and live commentary" tab.

Seems the match today has ended Uzbekistan 24-24 Lebanon, so Lebanon take the title.

There seems to be an error in the Lebanon-Iran game. Asia Rugby gives the score as Lebanon winning 34-24. The score by score statistics show Lebanon scoring a try and conversion and seven penalty goals whilst Iran scored four tries and two conversions

If all the scores are confirmed it could have been the most closed international tournament ever: two draws and a by-one-point-win!

Final ranking should be: Lebanon 6, Uzbekistan 4, Iran 4
Lebanon is not WR full member. Will it be promoted as well?

There was an error - Asia Rugby confirms the score as 25-24.

https://www.asiarugby.com/2017/03/30/iran-v-lebanon/

In the live statistics, the last penalty goal was repeated 3 times by mistake (all 4 penalties were scored in the same second - obviously impossible).

Is it a condition? I hope Lebanon is promoted. It is still the only group of the 4th division confirmed...

Any news about Kazakhstan?

One of the strangest results I've ever seen. If one can trust your pictre, the one try was a penalty try. Can anybody remember a team winning against 4 tries without touching the ball down once?
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Came across a good article about the development of rugby in the Philippines it seems like the plans are in place to grow the sport, and not just the expats playing it. The 7s team did well against the NZ Navy team too in prep for the SEA 7s during the Singapore 7s weekend.

Apparently this year just 14 nations are going to compete in Asia Championship, in front of the 18 nations playing last year (plus UAE "A") and of the 22 nations playing in 2014. A collapse!
To make things even better, the ARFU website is suspended... http://www.arfu.com/

Nations playing last year but not this year: Guam, Laos, Indonesia, Qatar, Jordan, Saudi Arabia
Nations not playing last year but playing this year: Taiwan, India
Nations playing in the past but not in these last two years: Pakistan, Mongolia, Cambodia, Brunei, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_Rugby_Championship

The most notable issue is perhaps the continuing absence of China, that should be in the height of its effort to reach quote 1 million players...

At 8 days from Japan / South Korea, only 20 South Korean players responded to training camp of coach John Walters.
https://twitter.com/AsieRugby/status/852853712909467648

Many South Korean players in Japan, like winger Jang Sung Min (NTT-Docomo Red Hurricanes), declined the selection.

Only eight South Korean players of the historic victory in Chile in November 2016 are from this group: Kim Jeep (KEPCO), Shin Dahyun (Korea Univ.), Yoo Ji Hoon (Korea Univ.), Lee Yong Seung (Hyundai Glovis), Shin Ki Chul (POSCO), Yoo Jae Hyuk (POSCO), Moon Jung Ho (Hyundai Glovis) and Kim Nam Wook (KEPCO).
