Match report from the World Record Game 09Feb15:
A Belgian rugby team playing in the country's top division has won a game 356-3. The match saw Royal Kituro run in 56 tries and 38 conversions to Soignies' lone drop-goal - which equates to more than four points a minute on average.The problems began for Soignies in the run-up to the game when the referee failed to turn up on time.The away team's coach and most of the players then left, assuming the game was off. However the referee did eventually appear, more than an hour after the scheduled kick-off, and the game went ahead. The 16 Soignies players still available seemingly did not compete in protest.Soignies president Guy Calomme described the result as "catastrophic", while a Kituro spokeswoman said Soignies "didn't really play". Footage of the game shows the away team allowing the opposition to run past them uncontested and repeatedly touch down under the posts. The away team were effectively forced to play and gain the 'loser's point', rather than forfeit the match and earn no points at all. And despite Royal Kituro's hammering of Soignies, the losers still sit above the Kituro in the league by one point. Soignies occupy third place in the table, although they now have a points difference of minus 264.

The refereeing in Belgium can be quite poor, but an hour late for the kick-off does seem exceptional, even for here.

Just watched the sale v wuss game - what a contrast with last nights game at the wreck ! I think I watched the right one live !
Wasps m.o. seems to be we don’t mind conceding a few tries because we’ll score more ...

Our defence has been much better recently, but does seem to get unpicked if the opponents have a bit of creativity and intent. But as you say, we're still confident enough to simply then outscore them in a cricket match if needed.
