Can we do it??

'Up until the 26th of April 2010 the record for most consecutive wins by any international team in Test Rugby was held by the All-Blacks from New Zealand and The Springboks from South Africa, which was 17. This record was eclipsed on the 26th by Lithuania, when they recorded their 18th win in a row when they wrote their name into Rugby's history books after beating Serbia 77-5 on Saturday to record an 18th consecutive Test victory and surpass the previous record in the men's Game held by New Zealand and South Africa.'

We're on 11 consecutive wins.
7 more wins to tie the record and 8 to beat it.

What are the odds??

Nice one Cap.

Good victory.

Now, what do they need to do to become a Test Nation, and play the real heavy weights?

What is this "Test" all about? Are these not real games?

Of course they're real. Official European matches.
Lithuania was in the same lower tier groups as us when they recorded their feat.

Lithuania is now in group 2A

You know, this indifference would all change once CY actually beats a Top Gun team. I mean, people are so fkn unbelievably clueless in this country.

I was raving about Baghdatis long before the Australian open. I already predicted the rise and fall of fame.
I was raving about the rugby long before the promotion and 11 consecutive wins.

Now, could somebody please humor us and actually give a fu**??
It's not rocket science people.

Yes Malta, Fiji is also a mega force in international rugby.
Don't judge rugby by soccer standards.
