Scrum down, Russia Put in...


Last week’s referendum in Crimea may have been described as a farce, but surely no more so than the rugby match 24 hours earlier between Russia and Crimea in Simferopol. 

Somewhat improbably Crimea – not even a national team and with therefore no IRB ranking – managed to stage a remarkable comeback from being 17-40 down at half time to secure a 59-59 draw with the 19th world ranked Russians.

Move along now, nothing to see here…
