Latvia – Ukraine 14 – 32

5 May 2018
Latvia led 6 – 3 just before halftime, but the Ukraine pack wore them down in the second half. The situation is still that Sweden must win or draw the last game next week against Latvia to avoid relegation. There seems to be some dispute however with the Latvian team where most of the Miesnieki players are refusing to play. This should weaken them considerably, but they are also fighting for their lives.





Allsvenskan kicks off!

Exiles played without seven international backs but were still good enough to beat Göteborg away by 51 – 5, the try conceded with a player in the bin. The Exiles pack was considerably under strength and lost a few put-ins, but the reserve backs were far too goood for the opposition.
Pingvin also started off well, beating Trojan 34 – 0, but with Trojan making a game of it.
