The question is who will be SWS 4th. SA, NZ and Fiji are safe bets. European need to cheer for England...

Here are the results from Burundi for RD Congo

1. R.D.CONGO VS R.CONGO : 10 - 0

2. R.D.CONGO VS LESOTHO : 33 - 05

3. BURUNDI VS R.D.CONGO : 05 - 26

It seems that all 4 teams do in fact play tomorrow in knockout game, RD Congo will face Burundi and Congo Brazza will meet Lesotho.

Update with the other results from https://www.facebook.com/lesothorugby/

Burundi 0-45 Lesotho
Congo Brazzaville 19-17 Burundi
Lesotho 7-12 Congo Brazzaville

Federation of Lesotho Rugby: The guys slept two days at the Airport amid a blunder from Burundi rugby not issuing a letter from immigration which allowed them to board the plane, they arrive at 8 am and played at 11am since departing Lesotho on Wednesday. Hopefully they would have done better if this hadn't taken place. Anyway Salute lads, fly the flag high

Thanks to Mcruic who found today's results

mcruic wrote:DAY 2
Semi-Finals
Burundi 7-10 DR Congo
Lesotho 17-0 Congo

Final
DR Congo 15-5 Lesotho

Missing result of Burundi-Congo for 3rd place (Congo won).


Therefore DR Congo join Côte d’Ivoire to qualify for next years Africa Zone 7s Olympic Qualifier. Now, whether all 12 teams that are taking part in the 2018 tournament will also take part I have no idea but maybe 2 will be relegated and it stays at 12 teams?

This is where the split for Men and Women's rugby is a bit of a nuisance, when you have topics applicable to both sections...

Women’s Trophy provides pathway for Asia teams in Brunei

The Asia Rugby Women’s Sevens Trophy will take place on October 20-21 in Brunei, with 10 teams competing in the annual competition.

With a place on the main series up for grabs, all 10 teams will be looking to be a part of the top sevens competition in 2019 and play a part in Olympic qualification.

So this is another "indirect" qualification tournament for the Olympics with the winners gaining promotion into the Asia Region qualification tournament proper next year.

This is the qualifying year.

Asia Rugby published dates and venues of its tournaments
9/11 Asia Women Olympic Q (Guangzhou, China)
23-24/11 Asia Men Olympic Q (Incheon, South Korea)

Do we know others? European qualifying should be on a circuit base as usual, but still no news about by Rugby Europe.

Don't know if already known but I learnt now, reading a nigerian rugby article, that African qualifiers will be in november in Johannesburg. They were the only continental tournament's venue and date still not known, at least as I know.

29- 30 JUNE: South America – Santiago, Chile (men)
6-7 JULY: North America – George Town, Cayman (men)
6-7 JULY: North America – George Town, Cayman (women)
13-14 JULY: European - Colomiers, France (men)
13-14 JULY: European - Kazan, Russia (women)
7-9 NOVEMBER: Oceania – Suva, Fiji (men)
7-9 NOVEMBER: Oceania – Suva, Fiji (women)
9-10 NOVEMBER: Asia – Guangzhou, China (women)
9-10 NOVEMBER: Africa - Johannesburg, South Africa (men)
9-10 NOVEMBER: Africa - Johannesburg, South Africa (women ?)
23-24 NOVEMBER: Asia – Incheon, Korea (men)
TBC, 2020: Olympic Games Repechage

"This competition will allow one of the participating teams to qualify for the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, in 2020. The participating teams are: Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Madagascar, Zambia, Tunisia, Senegal, Morocco, Namibia, Ghana, Botswana, Mauritius, Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria.
South Africa is presently competing in the HSBC World Sevens Series and may not participate at the Africa Sevens if they amass enough points and qualify for the Olympics automatically. Burkina Faso are waiting on the side lines to fill in the gap should South Africa excel at the HSBC".

WHAT on Day 2?

((A1 - 8) - (B2 - C2)) - ((B1 - 7) - (C1 - A2))

ONLY 8 teams or all 12?

Are useless games still scheduled?

Useless 'cause they
neither have any bearing on OLY qualification
nor they give any points for GPS ladder

And if there are ONLY those 8 games:
4 QF + 2 SF + BRONZE + GOLD

how gaps between rounds will be filled?

Thru pom-pom girls or some secondary comp? Say, schools 7s

Jamaica and sevens sounds like a match made in heaven. Wouldn't it be great if, in a decade or two, they could stage a leg of the World Series there? Right on the back doorstep of Cuba, Haiti and Dominican Republic as well - the Caribbean's three most populous nations. Cuba is undoubtedly the region's sleeping giant in 7s. Havana hosted an 8-team international tournament in 2010, the first IRB sanctioned tournament to be performed in the country. By all accounts it was a big success, receiving coverage from the national press and introducing many Cubans to the sport who previously knew nothing of the game. The Cuban national team beat Mexico, showing a big improvement in playing standards on the Island but then lost to a US select side named Atlantis 0-15. The tournament also featured 3 Cuban development sides.

German squad for the Olympic qualifier this weekend released:

RG Heidelberg: Fabian Heimpel, Bastian Himmer, Tim Lichtenberg
SC Neuenheim: Manasah Sita
Hannover 78: Phil Szczesny
TSV Handschuhsheim: Anjo Buckman
RK Heusenstamm: Leon Hees
TGS Hausen: Robert Haase
SC Germania List: Niclas Koch
US Oyonnax: Kilian Benjaballah
TV Pforzheim: Carlos Soteras Merz
FC St. Pauli: Ben Ellermann
Without a club: Max Calitz

As expected Germany does use the Olympic loophole with Zimbabwean international Manasah Sita (15 tries in 28 games on the 7s World Series for Zimbabwe). Sita has lived in Germany for 10 years, is married to a German and holds a German passport.
Squad looks good to me, even without the injured Sebastian Fromm, Sam Rainger, Marvin Dieckmann and Zani Dembele. Also missing are the regular internationals John Dawe, Claude Brechenmacher and Jarrod Saul, who don't hold a German passport and are therefore ineligible for the Olympic qualifier.

Germany also finally has some really big men on the pitch as well with Buckman, Calitz, Benjaballah and Ellerman all above the 1,90m mark.

How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.
