Thanks for that link... Just clicked and cannot see the games concerning Brunei and their group there at all, despite them being on the same dates and venues as India's group. Odd

Is it possible Brunei's group has been cancelled?

Also, no news anywhere about the 2 Pakistan v Uzbekistan matches. They are on the macoocoo.com website, but with no info.

Both the Division 3E and Division 3C links on the Asia Rugby site no longer work. All the other links are fine. I think they've probably been cancelled. Though it seems odd to play the Div. 3ES tournament in Brunei when Brunei are not taking part...

EDIT: Pakistan matches postponed until later this month (message from Pakistan Rugby Union).

Thanks mcruic, you are a bit of a legend/pitbull round here when it comes to getting obscure results.

I messaged Asia Rugby on Sunday night asking about 3C and 3E. This is the reply I had:

Hi, unfortunately neither of these tournaments are going ahead any longer

So, no Pakistan, no Uzbekistan, no Brunei, no Laos, no Mongolia (and no Iran, which was supposed to play in div. III West).
I don't want to repurpose the usual Asia map with the participating nations, but it would be a map plenty of black

Ron and James, the two friends bike-riding from London to the RWC in Japan, just left Iran and entered in Turkmenistan.
They are way ahead of the planned speed march (represented by the shadow biker in the third image)

Prior to the Asian Championships beginning, Malaysia have announced through Social Media they'll play Sri Lanka in a double header on the 2nd and 4th May (as well as a game against a Singapore XV).

Kurdistan and Baghdad played a match in Arbil/Erbil, presumably in the XV mode
I don't know the score but it doesn't matter, I suppose

(strangely in some photos there are a man and a woman in casual clothes in the middle of the field, it's hard to understand; maybe a couple of british ambassadors, utilized as referees?)

According to macoocoo fixtures are
23 Indonesia China
26 India China
29 India Indonesia

If so, the venue should be in Indonesia; because usually the home team plays the first and the last match.
But, who knows?

28/04

Brunei v Laos
and
India v Indonesia

Indonesia v China on the 1st of May

Have they been moved to June??

Singapore rugby.

Not sure where I read it but it's a Thailand XV v Singapore. The format of the game will determine the test status for Singapore.


...and getting the idea from their facebook page Singapore are awarding test caps.
