Öppet brev 2 till styrelseordf. Madeleine Lahti

21 Oct 2014
For those who do not have a command of Swedish, this is a summary of how I view the disastrous events surrounding the Swedish Men´s XV over the last few months. I feel that the chairperson of the Union has a lot to answer for and in an open letter in Swedish have requested that she tells us how she contributed to determining the extremely unsatisfactory fixture list, why she did nothing to prepare for the Poland match and why she allowed the acting trainer to select a team for Ukraine which was manifestly far weaker than could have been selected. I hope that she will reply. No response or an unsatisfactory one would lead me to conclude that she has been unable to meet all of the difficult challenges of leading Swedish rugby.

Sverige 0 - Ukraine 45

18 Oct 2014
As predicted, a very poor Swedish team was outclassed by a very average Ukrainian team which never had to move out of second gear. Time for those responsible for this fiasco to consider their positions.

Team against Ukraine announced

18 Oct 2014
The squad is up on the Union home page. Never have I seen a Swedish team with so many obvious choices excluded and so many no-hopers included. Half the players from teams getting beaten by 100-odd points by Enköping and Exiles. Both these teams from last week are 30 - 40 points better than this Swedish select. Only hope is that the Ukraine prove to be much weaker than normal for political reasons.

International weekend

17 Oct 2014
Sweden now moves on to round 2 of the European 1B Championship. In September Sweden lost 29 – 17 to Poland in Warsaw. In the two year series with six countries, comprising five home and five away games, Sweden would have to win a minimum of three games to have a chance of staying in this prestige group beyond 2016. We have the players to do so, but at present we do not have the infrastructure to win anything. Sweden were completely unprepared and close to giving a walkover against Poland, but those who did finally turn out put up a better show than could reasonably have been expected. Our pack was not international class but our backs had the beating of Poland.
