Rugby quiz: Representing two countries

BRAINTEASER: @rugby365com‘s oracle Paul Dobson has dug into the representative archives to make it ‘easier’ for the readers.


Can you finally get a pass-mark?

You will see your score at the end of the quiz and can challenge your friends and rivals.

We will provide the answers to this quiz in the next one, so you can see what the correct answers were.

Be honest and do it on your own and get your own score, not Google‘s answers! Nobody needs to know your score except you yourself, but it may stimulate an interest in rugby’s history.

Important note!

PS: It is a timed quiz, so cheating and making use of Google to search for answers will see you being timed out!

Good luck and enjoy!
