Howells declared today at Rugby Nation TV show that Romania will play only 2 games this Autumn because WR couldn't find a team to travel to Europe.

Telekom Sport (ex. Dolce Sport) will broadcast one match / round from Super Liga on facebook from now on. Tomorrow at 15:00 Romanian timezone you can watch Dinamo - CSM Bucuresti.

Is there no team within Europe they could play? Spain? Belgium? Portugal? Netherlands?

Spain would be a decent match but we play them in REC. About the rest, we can send Romania A out there, they're at Brazil level at best.. If I'd be FRR I'd give a test to Portugal from courtesy since we played them in a training match before REC at the beginning of the year.

However, we hold REC, made a close match with Japan, win vs US, Canada, surely a decent side like Oaks can receive 3 test in Autumn. :roll: Apparently not

I don't understand how they couldn't fine a team. Japan and the USA are yet to announce a game on the 11th November, unless they are playing each other.

Why couldn't the USA/Japan play Romania on the 11/12th while the other team plays the likes of Spain or Russia that is in need of much more international oppositions from outside of Europe.

Back to local competition, 6th round had the following results:

CS Dinamo Bucuresti 32 - 53 CSM Bucuresti

Dinamo made it easy for visitors, they played without a certain plan other than trying to use their pack. On the rare occasions when they wanted to go wide, players positioning was simply not appropriate hence they lacked support and targets for offloads. At the end of the match, when the margin was already big enough Dinamo managed some tries after some all out attack phases. Young prop Dumitrescu (Dinamo) got some success at his debut with his drives and by scoring a try trough a soft CSM defense.

Highlights:

CSM Stiinta Baia Mare 64 - 0 Politehnica Iasi

The hosts celebrated 40 years since the club was established and visiting team did nothing to try to spoil their party. At this score, hard to comment anything.

CS Universitatea Cluj 22 - 38 Timisoara Saracens

Cluj was a stronger opposition that its place in the standings and was close of Timisoara for the duration of the match. Romanian Sarancens don't seem to find their form and now we can say that Williams saw the entire squad and could settle to a starting XV because some of the injured players are fine now and can play.

Super Liga 7th round:

Haven't watched any game so I won't comment much.

Timisoara Saracens 52 - 20 Politehnica Iasi

It seems that Timisoara have serious trouble and can't find its form. At half time the score was 12-10 with a try in last minute of the half after there were behind against a team with 18 - 20 yo inexperienced players. The bench made the difference in the second half and Iasi kid's couldn't hold on.

CS Stiinta Baia Mare 22 - 16 Dinamo Bucuresti

Surprisingly close. Full match here:

CSM Bucuresti 12 - 15 Steaua Bucuresti

I didn't watched it but I heard from people who went to the match or watch it on tv that despite the lack of tries and the horrible weather it was a spectacular match
