God bless globalisation

I am an Australian who is regularly resident in London. I am sitting in an Irish pub in Bucharest, drinking Danish branded beer (probably brewed locally) and watching a rugby match between Tonga and Fiji on the television.

Seriously, we need to get Romania into the six (seven) nations as soon as possible.

Didn't know the Romanians played Rugby!

Currently using Wi-Fi in Weatherspoons due to BT having failed to connect my phone. That made me think of you :)

Apparently Romanian students brought the game back from Paris in the 1920s. Romania has qualified for every world cup, and is one of the very best rugby countries outside the top flight. That have scored upset victories on occasion against Wales, Scotland, and France.

Rugby spread to a few Latin places. The French, Italians, Romanians and Argentines all play it with at least a reasonable level of seriousness.
