Bahia Rugby Union will be the 7th state member of the Brazilian Rugby Union (CBRu)!

Congratulations for the state and specially to Manuel Cabral, president of the Union that worked on that. It is the first state to be admited after the former ABR (Brazilian Rugby Association) was transformed in CBRu with the Olympic cycle. The only state members were the 6 founders, all from the South and Southeast. Bahia is the first Northeast state to enter the organization.

Awesome finish of the Brazilian Womens Series "Super Sevens". The last round was played last weekend and São José was leading the table with 8 points ahead of Niteroi (from Rio). The last tournament, in Curitiba, was dramatic, with São José (with Edna Santini back) falling in the quarter finals, beaten by Leoas de Paraisópolis (the club born in a São Paulo favela/slum famous for its rugby social project Rugby Para Todos... Leoas great players are Bianca Silva, that started rugby there, and Raquel Kochhann, a teacher in the project).

Niteroi went to the big final against Leoas and with the victory clinched the Series title by 1 point! Beatriz "Baby" Futuro Muhlbauer and Isadora Cerullo shone for Niteroi.

Rio's rugby in the top with its women.

Results and final table:
