In France, Italy narrowly beat Romania in their pool match at the Rugby World Cup. It had been expected that Italy would have annihilated the opposition, but it was a hard game, and it was obvious that the two teams are but minnows in the game.
Also in France, Scotland beat France in football. Now there is something to celebrate. Well done all the Scotties.
And in South Africa, the Australians were well beaten by the minnows, Zimbabwe, in their pool game for the Twenty20 World Cup currently underway down here. (It's cricket, for you who might not know). This must rate as the upset of the tournament, seeing as the Ozzie's are supposed to be number 1 in the world for 5 day / 1 day cricket. Well done to our neighbours, the ex-Rhodesians!
