The home team notched up what I think was their first ever win with a 32-16 scoreline here at Brussels University (VUB). Was only 10-6 at the break but the Golden Lions ran out comfortable winners. A good 70-80 in attendance. I won an icepack and an apron in the half-time raffle. Good fun all round.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Great to have a game played and to be able to get a crowd and run a game at an early stage is impressive progress.

Double for Belgium they beat the Dutch 22-6 in Delft back in June 2013.

Belgium defeated Holland 32-16 at the VUB-Sports department in Brussels, crossing for six tries.

 

Man of the match Simon Marotte led the way, opening the scoring in the fourth minute after a clever dummy.

 

Holland responded to lead 6-4 at the break, stand off Brian Roos with their try, goaled by Uri Breman.

 

Five minutes into the second period, a terrific break by Belgium full back Medhi Hrim saw Lelio Guimar cross, Kevin Williams goaling.

 

But the Dutch were back in front straight after, great handling sending their best, Marcus Holden over, Breman with the extras.

 

Tries just before and after the hour gave the hosts the ascendancy, Steven Garofalo sprinting 60 metres and prop Sydney-Jordan Muluma powering over, Williams goaling both to make it 22-12.

 

Holden’s sensational 90 metre run for his second try narrowed the gap to a converted score but Belgium finished strongly.

 

Simon Troquereaux was on the end of some terrific teamwork and Josquin Dewinne went 30 metres to the posts, impressive scrum half Williams landing his fourth conversion.
