Tournament review

Under the absence of Argentina the strongest team was Catalonia and indeed they won easily scoring three match wins. Portugal drew with Euskadi in the ultimate round and both teams stayed equal on points sharing second place. Scotland came up for the first time since 2003, but again finished last.
