I'm boringly stubborn so I signaled to Rugby Europe the "bug" in their upcoming games pages and they kindly answered
"Hi there, we have reported the problem to the web developers who are trying to fix this as we speak. Thanks!"

The error response is still there but they were kind to answer immediately.
I'd like to see if there are italian referees in the last five games (the Poland v Ukraine one will be directed by a russian trio), but there's also the chance that they've still not appointed them

According to some posts emerged on the social media, Marija Shakuro, captain of the Belarus women national team (7s, beach, snow), was arrested three or four days ago in Minsk. The cause? Or because she was taking part to a protest rally or, according to other details, just because she subscribed a petition asking for Lukashenko's resignation, for new elections and for the end of the police repression

I remain a bit perplexed when I see posts like this in the World Rugby and RWC accounts :geek:

Yep, they do this but don't check the world map to see where countries are...

The St.Pauli club, german football Bundesliga 2, painted this murale for Mariya Shakuro, the belarusian woman rugby player condemned to 10 days of prison apparently just because she took part to an unauthorized (and pacific) protesting rally.
According to a source in belarusian rugby, it's obvious that the exit of the elections (80% to Lukashenko, 10% to the main opponent) was a giant fraud. He thinks that Lukashenko should have not had more than 20% of the votes.
As far as I perceived reading some few articles and posts, a big part of the "civil society", many calm and polite and informed people, is backing the protests; also this makes that 80% to Lukashenko appearing very unlikely

Even more perplexed in front of the new WR social media approach. It seems they gave the account key to a teenager convinced to be very funny

If they are trying to connect with young fans, well, they are not.
