Cyprus clock up record-breaking win

on 03/16/2013

Cyprus beat Bulgaria 79-10 to bring their winning run to 18-consecutive wins.

Cyprus have been unbeaten for over four years, since their only previous defeat at Test level; 14-23 to Israel in Netanya in the promotion play-offs for the FIRA/AER Championships on September 6, 2008. That means, prior to today's game, they were on 17-consecutive wins - a record shared between three other countries. But today's triumph over Bulgaria puts them top of the charts, according to ESPNscrum's records.

The IRB claims that Lithuania have also gone 18-matches unbeaten but they do not include an 18-3 loss to Armenia which occurred during the winning sequence.
