Why this is important to me

Countries should be treated fairly regardless of the power, money or political clout it may have. Cyprus Rugby has been cheated.

The IRB (International Rugby Board) themselves determine which teams are eligible for membership and which countries can challenge for the world cup. For countless years Cyprus has not been allowed membership to the IRB and hence all their games do not count toward a world ranking. They have severely beaten many countries and are on a world record winning streak of 18 games. The latest is that the IRB have denied Cyprus the opportunity to challenge for the world cup.
