And after that, the November window slams shut.

The big match is again in Dublin where this time Ireland face Australia with Jérôme Garcès of France to referee it.

Hugh Watkins of Hong Kong has sent in Hong Kong club appointments, which are most welcome. Hong Kong has just hosted "a very successful Cup of Nations which Russia won quite convincingly". Russia beat Hong Kong in the final while Zimbabwe beat Papua New Guinea to end third.
