Interesting how the Lady Springboks are majority black. Is rugby played more in ZA by black women than white women? Honest question.

Scotland won neatly also the second game in South Africa: 15-38

These two wins should give to the scottish more or less 3.40 points in the ranking, but they will gain just one position: from 12th to 11th
South Africa lose the same amount and drop from 11th to 15th, behind Portugal...

After the news item from the ARU about the Oceania Championship/World Cup qualifier today (https://wallaroos.rugby/news/2019/10/27/australia-a-fiji, just trying to work out what is going on!

Australia A, Fiji and Papua New Guinea are in Pool A, and New Zealand Development, Samoa and Tonga in Pool B. But teams will not be playing other teams in the same pool, but rather the three teams from the other pool.

The full fixtures are not yet confirmed anywhere but based on the article we can take a reasonable guess. Confirmed fixtures are in bold, educated guesses in italics

Monday 18 November: Australia A v Tonga, Black Ferns Development v Papua New Guinea, Fiji v Samoa
Friday 22 November, Australia A v Black Ferns Development, Fiji v Tonga, Papua New Guinea v Samoa
Tuesday 26 November, Australia A v Samoa, Black Ferns Development v Fiji, Papua New Guinea v Tonga
Saturday 20 November: Finals

Not that I know. I only read some comments praising local team at halftime so I suspect the scoreboard skyrocketed in the last quarter.

HT 12-0

Unfortunately RTVE geoblocked in spite of WRU widely sharing their links. I think the last two ones work properly abroad.

I don't think the second Spanish try was touched down properly when Cox whistled. It could have been a penalty try for high tackle, but not the way it was refereed.

FT 29-5

Impressive display by Spain, but I was negatively surprised by apparent lack of physical preparation among Welsh players and how late their front row was subbed.

And I will never stop regretting Iera Echebarria's unfortunate injury earlier in the season...
