Here are the results and fixtures for the official Cyprus national side. :D

The Barbarians are unofficial. the Lebanon game was a request from the Lebanese rugby federation.

It seems we'll play in a higher division next year. :D

Don't wanna jump the gun but I'm certain it can be achieved.
The national side has been undefeated in almost 4 years.
Going for the 13 consecutive win next month away to Bulgaria. :D

Cap, I see the Moufflons have made it to the top of their league :)

Will you be at the Baba's game next week? I believe it has been rescheduled to Monday at Happy Valley, but you probably already know that! :oops:

Nope, didn't know. Who we playing?

My interest lies more with the Moufflon marauders. :D

Going for 14 in a row against Greece on the 26th of this month.
After that its another 4 wins to tie the world record. :D

The greatest and most successful national sporting team to emerge from this abused and raped nation.

We're 11 consecutive games undefeated. UNDEFEATED.

Once you comprehend the magnitude, witness the awe inspiring class of the team first hand, then maybe you'll understand.


Thats because there are only very few countries that take rugby seriously. For the rest of the world rugby is either unknown or is just played by amateurs. So it is not a competitive sport. We might as well start Sumo and we could get second place in the world after Japan :lol:


Rugby union is played in over 100 countries across six continents and as of November 2010 118 unions were members of the IRB.


And I bet in most of those countries it is played only by amateurs and most people don't even care. Rugby is big in just a handful of countries. On the other hand football is big in almost all. I never heard of "All Black Haka" but if these are the best of rugby and our team dreams of just playing with them... let alone winning them that says a lot about the level we are playing. In football we at least play with all the big teams and sometimes we can even win them... like we won Spain in 98.

Hi - it is a match against the army - but it has been postponed owing to some of the guys being away on ops!
Should be a good game on the 26th - I hope to be there too :)
