Another attempt to make some kind of sense of what's going on east of the Dniester. Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan come in for special attention.

Happier news for Georgia

Also about a heavy clash, but one in which all of Georgia came out the winner.

The Georgian national rugby team beat Namibia 30-0 to secure their first ever victory at the Rugby World Cup.

Just one win may not look like a lot, but it has to be said that the Georgian team has played magnificently this year, even managing to give the Irish team (underperforming so far, but still a perennial power in rugby,) a scare bordering on outright terror.

It looks as though we'll see more Georgian players playing for top-flight clubs in Europe and I'm guessing there's a lot more to come from Georgia, now that they've got people's attention.

Well done to the Lelos!
