Nice article in Italian; does contain few small inaccuracies but overall good:

Rugby Onslaught shared World Rugby's video.

This is why we love Tier 2. It's not yet poisoned by the cynicism of Tier 1 professionalism.

Super Liga 9th Round:

1st April: Steaua Bucuresti 39 - 25 Dinamo
Highlights: https://www.rugbytv.ro/2017/04/02/super ... 39-25.html

Dinamo wasn't able to put a serious opposition in the first half but scored tries in the second one.


2nd April: CSM Bucuresti 41 - 21 Poli Iasi
full match:
https://www.privesc.eu/Arhiva/75308/Mec ... -2016-2017

A spectacular match with seven tries. Despite financial problems and a thin bench due to injuries and lack of money, Poli Iasi gave a vigorous reply hosts attacked whenever he had the opportunity.


CSM Stiinta Baia Mare - RC Timisoara Saracens was postponed for 3rd May due to the fact that Timisoara was involved in qualifying competition for Challenge Cup.

Hi there, I searched for it on various video hosting sites but I couldn't find anything. I suppose is still in national television archive but that would be all, I doubt the full match is available somewhere on the internet. I still waiting for some answers from people who have old games so if I receive a positive answer I'll let you know.

Timisoara Saracens just announced they will put an end to the contract with Grainger Heinkell.

No news yet about the new coach.

LE: Sosene Anesi will coach the team until the end of the season.

Timisoara appointed Chester Williams as Director of Rugby. The announcement is a little unclear, it says will help Anesi's stuff to keep the Champion title at Timisoara but it doesn't say anything about the next season.

Probably the last result was the cherry on the cake 3-22 at Baia Mare.

Timisoara form was abysmal lately, they are in a dive since last year and no signs of recovery.

Chester Williams is a big personality, won every title possible with Timisoara and basically built the team which dominated national championship for years. If he is here to stay I hope it will be for a long term project rather than 1-2 years.

3rd June test for Oaks on 24th June will be vs. Brazil, home

https://frr.ro/2017/05/11/romania-va-in ... bucuresti/

I really hope in compensation for our good will to host a very average team, we shall play Italy in November and other strong T2. It's 16 vs 31...

Absurd. If it was Romania A or played in Brazil, now we could have seen a good match. But come on... One thing is willing to see T2 play T3, which nobody in this forum would disagree with, and a way different thing this pointless game.

I strongly disagree. The more it becomes a normality that a 16th ranked team plays a 31st ranked team the better for global rugby. Brazil will lose with 99,99 % probability, but they won't lose by a 80+ margin. They gave Germany a run for their money and as we all learned this year, Germany can beat the best available Romanian side on a lucky day.

If the rugby world becomes aware that this games a normal, maybe this 16th ranked team will get the chance to play a higher ranked team once in a while.

The longer Morariu is in charge of Rugby Europe the more I think he is a good man (the trophy-handover to Georgia aside :D )

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.

I mean, I could have understand Kenya before Brazil or playing Brazil away since we're there but this match...I don't know. Anyway, FRR said will field a team from young players from Super Liga.

I don't want to be disrespectful toward Brazil but in this rhythm I wonder what to do to get proper matches, seems REC and defeating better Americas sides it is not enough. What's next, Paraguay and Sri Lanka?

As for Romania A playing any of those, I wouldn't mind at all, au contraire, I'd like to see here Zimbabwe, Hong Kong, South Korea and equally would be good for young players to travel abroad but to fill one of the June spots with this it is just cynical and rude from WR.

Nobody can't stop Romania to play with a very young side &Howells already say that this are his intentions. The problem is not this game, is the fact that we must play T3 but T1 have no intentions to play us. This is was the case in the last 10 years.

At home. Brazil is yet to win a game in Europe. Either you held Brazil v Romania in Brazil or you find a less strong European side to host Brazil. But this is too much even for me.

Very lucky day and mostly due to a brain fart of Romanian players and some help for ref but I don't see this happening again anytime soon.

Would have made much more sense to play Brazil away than home...they would have had some home ground advantage, fans would have watched a better team but playing Brazil home, with Romania A?
