Around the Continent: Roger’s Corner


The Alphen Eagles made short work of the Pirates beating them 41-0 in Group A action while the Arnhem Falcons (Group B) upended the Panthers  (Group A) 20-14. Alphen leads Group A with 12 points while the Amsterdam Crusaders top Group B, also with 12 points.


The University of Limerick Vikings, who are second in the South Division, defeated Waterford 35-6 and thus remain in second in the south.  Also in the south, the West Dublin Rhinos edged North Kildare 12-9. In a battle for third in the Northern Division, the Carrickfergus Knights squeaked by the Cowboys 26-24 to take over sole possession of third. With five weeks left in the season, the Dublin Rebels lead the north with a 5-0 record while Trinity College Dublin top the south, also with a 5-0 record.


The Parma Panthers (Europe #12) unloaded on Ferrara 76-6 remaining undefeated in Italian league play. The second-place Milano Seamen were idle while Bolzano (third) edged Turin 8-7 and Bergamo, who are in fourth,  beat the fifth-place Ancona Dolphins 42-10. Only two weeks remain Italian league play and Parma should be the heavy favorites to defend their title.
