    Australian series final round results:

    Queensland A 8 - Samoa A 24
    Brumby Runners - Tonga A cancelled due to inclement weather
    Junior Waratahs 15 - Fiji Warriors 30

    http://www.voxy.co.nz/sport/aust-leg...ludes/5/116892

    ARU High Performance Unit Manager, David Nucifora, said the second annual IRB Pacific Rugby Cup provided Australian FxPro Super Rugby sides a chance to provide elite Rugby experiences for the back end of their squads, as well as providing game time for extended player squad and National Academy players.

    "The Pacific Rugby Cup is an elite competition that provides our up-and-coming stars with a chance to show off their skills against international opponents," Nucifora said.

    "The importance of this competition and the development it provides for the rising ranks of Australian Rugby cannot be understated.

    "These games have allowed the FxPro Super Rugby sides a chance to not only provide match experience for their contracted development players, but also access the National Academy players, who have been working under the ARU academy system for three months now and relish the exposure to game situations."

As long as you are not from the Force or Rebels

    "The importance of this competition and the development it provides for the rising ranks of Australian Rugby cannot be understated. So why aren't all teams included??
