34-13, according to

In the second link you find also the scorers (not all of them)

By the way, it was French Army in the Pacific Ocean. So, I guess, also players from French Polynesia

There was also a gentle commercial billboard saying "Men with balls use Vaseline!"

Strangely the world ranking has still not been updated (usually it happens on monday at noon), despite in the weekend a game affecting the ranking points, Lithuania v Portugal, was played

San Marino Rugby have a new chairman after some internal quarrels.
Davide Giardi takes the chair of the resigning Marc Lazzari.
The whole or almost the whole new executive group is composed by still active players (included a woman).
Apparently San Marino will have no international activity in 2019: they're not part of the Euro 7s and they never played a XV test match. The local Club seems having just 7s and touch activity in this season

Denmark XV according to Danish web site. On facebook they also mention it as a 'training game'. Gibraltar still see it as a 'test' match for them. On their FB page they list half a dozen making their debut.

This Namibian girl became (a bit) famous in her country after hitting a rugby post with her bike. She assured that the incident wasn't staged, that she felt often and that her mother has to say "My fok, Marlieze!" several times per day...

Again about San Marino: the new president David Giardi says that the aims of the new board are to expand the number of players and to restore the national team activity, frozen in the last year and an half.
Nowadays San Marino Rugby has just 50 players (the number includes underage players and some girls, I think) but the new San Marino sport rules request to have at least 70 recorded active players before 2021, or the board will lose its status of "Federation".
With similar numbers, the hope to see a XV national team seems still very far

Servette RC achieved their fifth consecutive promotion in French rugby without dropping a game. Now it gets interesting in Fed 3.

Here it comes, one of the funniest moments of the year... World Rugby annual report and its lottery of playing numbers!

To stick to what I know, Spain apparently suffered a loss of 4,000 registered players between 2017 and 2018 in spite of all national official sources declaring an increase.

A 130% increase from 2017 World Rugby annual report. Easy.

Italy lost 4,5 K registered players, according to those data. It would be -5,5% in a year, a big loss. But who knows how those numbers are composed?

Burkina Faso and Lebanon are the new associated members

So 18 associated members now: British Virgin Islands, St.Lucia / Guatemala / Burkina Faso, Burundi, Mali, Mauritania, Tanzania, Togo / Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Slovakia / Brunei, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Mongolia.

There are also the usual little geographical mistakes: Turkey, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan should be blue in the map. So Israel. West Papua should be yellow. French Guyane and maybe Suriname should be light blue. Interesting to see that Belize is light blue as the north-american nations; but this could be not really meaningful

Wow that is truely an awesome find of an even more awesome page. Thanks for sharing!
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.
