Interesting. Do you know what sparked that? And why those games are on the chopping block?

Canada doing a (long overdue) review of women's caps. Apparently the games were "scrimmages" (training games) - I do remember at the time the games seemed questionable after the US selected almost completely different teams for each game.

Zimbabwe v Botswana this week, according to http://www.sareferees.com/News/referees ... 7/2830927/

Curtain raiser of the men's Africa Cup match, maybe; both the games are in Bulawayo

Yes, it is a curtain raiser to the Zimbabwe-Kenya men's match

It would be nice if World Rugby was aware of this game, and decided to add Zim and Bsw to the ranking increasing it from 49 to 51 nations

WR haven't recognised the Zimbabwe v Zambia test yet - despite both sides clearly saying it was a test, and both being members of WR.

Far be it for me to suggest its because the matches are in Africa... though TBH Rugby Afrique may not be entirely blameless.

This time World Rugby is aware of the Zimbabwe v Botswana duel, see the upper belt on http://www.worldrugby.org/

Maybe next monday we will see the ranked nations improving to 51
