I don't think it says great things about our league that up to three guys would be at the top of points scored way in front of the rest... Thanks for the effort.

An other statistic, thanks to the mighty stats.espnscrum.com: test matches played in 2018 by every nation, with details (won, lost, drawn, tries, convs...). The total of 541 matches played by the various nations must be incorrect because it should be a even number, but maybe they considered some matches between a full select and an "A" team or an invitational team (the Barbarians?); I haven't checked where the "bug" is. The largest score (this is not on the list) is from Europe Cup: Denmark v Estonia 127-5. Lowest score is Guadeloupe v Curacao 5-7, RAN Championship. Two matches were try-less: Norway v Austria 9-6 and Wales v Australia, same score.

PS: yes, they counted also matches played by full national teams against NZ Maori or Argentina XV or Barbarians, for example, but of course including just the data of the full national team; hence the odd total number of matches played and a total points difference around -300.

Instead they didn't count at least two friendlies we had news about: Jordan v Saudi Arabia, Niger v Nigeria.
Hence, we are more powerful than Espn Scrum Stats :)

Mongolia defeated Kazakhstan 28-19 and lost with New Zealand 52-106 in Ulaan Baatar. Not bad! :)

Yes, it was a joke (by me) and probably a test (by them). If New Zealand had played in Ulaan Baatar probably we would have heard something about

MOREOVER:

according to this
http://www.mrfu.mn/#/mongolia/men/overview
they play[d] twice on the same day and same venue
13 Aug, 17:00 Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
no less powers than ... ENG and NZL

They have already beaten poor Kazakhstan and
now they aim at neighboring giants -- China

And the whole of national side consist of two players:
Centre Austin :!: Gansukh and Fly half Tsend Altankhuyag
albeit in 6 personifications each

For the first time in a long time Italy's rugby team has a better chance of winning a RWC than their football team.

Just found on google images. It's an unknown (to me) Hamlet's actor; he had a skull on his left hand on the original image : )
Of course it was just a (silly) joke

The two bikers started from London and heading to Tokyo are not far from Romania, is someone of our forum fellows wants to cycle a bit with them. If you click on the first link and scroll down the page you see the live map of their path. After Romania they will pass through Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey and then Asia

I can't understand clearly: is that hill on the background completely full of houses?
If so, it appears almost like a bidonville; but maybe they have different criteria and it's just a popular district.
An other strange thing is that all the windows you can see in the nearest houses, enlarging the photo, are black; like those houses were empty and without real windows but still with holes in their place

The woman has a "Lima 2019" logo in her jacket, so the stadium should be destined to the Pan-American Games (starting at the end of July)

I really don't understand why Rugby Unions insist on providing live streams without a score on the screen. It's quite ridiculous in 2019...

Also, I note on screen it says "World Rugby Test Match", but the match is not on the World Rugby website...
