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 26, Gibraltar 22 in Odense (Test Friendly)
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
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
We may think we are minor-rugby-results addicted but this man is incredible, he keeps updating the results of many european minnow clubs' tournaments, plus several international competitions. It's not a case that he is italian, there must be something strange in our blood
