Belgian rugby club appeals 356-3 loss

Wednesday February 11th, 2015

Belgian rugby club Soignies suffered the worst defeat in Rugby history on Sunday, when it lost to rival squad Kituro 356-3, but the team is protesting the game, as the ref showed up to the match an hour and half after the agreed upon start time.

Soignies claims no ref came to the field for the 3 p.m. game and a replacement ref did not arrive until 4:30, when several of their players had already left, leaving them with just 17 players for the game.

According to Reuters, the club defeated Kituro in Belgian Cup competition a week earlier, and still leads the team in the standings by one point.
