Second leg of Americas 2 playoff this weekend, USA having won the first 22-21 v Chile.

Hong Kong 23-21 Korea in the Asia Rugby Championship final last week & will now play Tonga in Brisbane on 23 July for the Asia/ Pacific 1 qualifying spot.

These are hard to pick. HK, Kenya probably the most use to playing in the conditions.

Most recent loss by HK has to give some confidence. Never want to lose but you still scored 22 on Tonga.

OMG a major sporting event executive is allegedly corrupt....

I agree this close to an event it's not great. At least in Australia this will get zero attention anyway.

This isn't a good look...

Fantastic insult the fella wheeled out though:
He allegedly described another member of staff as a "poor shit".
Might have to file that one away and then let it loose on @Tomikin during the next Blues Brumbies matchday thread.

He's been fired as a result of that enquiry & looking at jail time for embezzlement, as is FRU President Bernard Laporte:

Interesting - it looks like two different issues, a managerial and workplace related sanctions and then embezzlement allegations.

So looks like it'll go down to the final game between Portugal and USA in round 3 to decide who plays Australia next year (and who I watch! weird having tickets to a mystery team).

Due to be sentenced, along with Laporte, on the embezzlement matter on 15/12.

Selectors starting to get excited about this one.....
