Well, this year's tournament will be held in Bucharest(again :D ), between 7 and 21 June, and these are the participating teams:

Romania
Emerging Springboks
Italy "A"
Georgia
Russia
Uruguay


The fixtures and other news should appear on rugby.ro, probably even before on the irb site.

Hi everybody,

Someone knows if and where the IRB Nation's cup Matches could be seen on television?

I'd like to view Emerging Springboks-Italy and Romania-Georgia!

Do you know if Italy has already published the roster of player who will play the tournament?

thanks!

bye!

Search the list of Italia A on Fir web site.
Don't know about tv beacuse i don't think that some italian tv is interested in broadcasting that kind of show.....maybe SI sportitalia....but i haven't seen ads of this event on it.

If the tournament would be at the same level as last year's, I'd say none..

But since Argentina A was replaced by the mighty Uruguay and the Springboks aren&#39;t "emerging" from their super14 teams anymore - hell, that bunch isn&#39;t even of Currie Cup quallity, I guess so they could match the quality of their new coach <_< , Chester Williams - anything&#39;s possible.

Personally, I&#39;d go for either Romania or Georgia.

And you got close to a surprise against the Emerging Springboks, after that try scored with 3 minutes before the whistle. Here are the full results of day two:
Georgia 20-18 Uruguay
Italy A 19-20 Emerging Springboks
Rusia 12-13 Romania

Standings:
1. Emerging Springboks 2 2 0 0 31-22 0bonus points 8points
2. Romania 2 2 0 0 23-18 0bp 8p
3. Italy A 2 1 0 1 57-35 2bp 6p
4. Georgia 2 1 0 1 23-29 1bp 4p
5. Uruguay 2 0 0 2 24-30 2bp 2p
6. Russia 2 0 0 2 27-51 1bp 1p

So Romania and the Emerging Boks will play the decider.

Italy A played very well...I think that players like Paolo Buso and Valerio Bernaḅ should become part of the first national team...I really like them...

That&#39;s the question everyone asks :bleh!:
but nobody answers :bleh!:
so we have just to sit and watch games 3 out of 5 :bleh!:
anyway we can push our heads on :wall: but without results :bleh!: so
we just sit and take it easy :P
especially if our team gets high in standings :cheers:
