Royal Kituro 356 Soignies 3

This has been doing the rounds on t'interweb today.

Yes, the above score is a genuine result from Belgium’s top division in a match in which Royal Kituro scored 56 tries and 38 conversions to Soignies' one drop goal.

Apparently the Soignies coach and several players had disappeared before kick of, assuming the game was off as the match referee had failed to turn up. When he did eventually did arrive more than an hour late the 16 remaining Soignies players were effectively forced to play, although "play" isn't really an accurate description of what the Soignies players actually did…

Bizarrely, despite the result, Soignies still sit above Royal Kituro in the league, albeit now with a points difference of minus 264.

I'm sure I'm not the only one to wonder how on earth they scored 3?
