I REALLY expected more from Russia. I know they changed head coach in the middle of their tournament preparation, but still, for a nation with some decent playing numbers and having held training camps in Georgia and South Africa this is totally underwhelming.

FT Russia 12-53 Spain

Lots and lots of rookie mistakes in Portugal vs Netherlands U20 unfortunately.

Last 3 years I have seen all the U20, U18 and mens games against Portugal. This was the first time I thought we were in the game to win it. Territory and possession seemed to be equal. We missed 2 good opportunities for tries.
Looking at the scores we have a chance against Russia. Two wins at this level would still be fantastic for us.

I back that.
This years results against Romania and Portugal seem comparable with last years. The big difference is however that last year this was achieved despite our pack being shoved around the park.
This year our team appears much more balanced. Our scrum (with the front row traditionally our weak spot) was very much in the balance with both Romania and Portugal while our backs were lacking some inventivity and accuracy in decisive moments.
And you should know, when playing Portugal you must have your defense in order 100% of the time.
While Portugal could not create hardly any break or scoring opportunity following their set pieces either, they again were deadly with loose ball and scored one or two intercept tries.
In the end the more clinical team won.

Being able to build from stable set pieces this year and due to the weird competition format, a win against Russia might even take us to second place in the final standings (in front of last years winners).

Yes, Holland looks like the nation with the biggest progress from this group.

Nope, stopped after 5 minutes of play.
Oranje had a promising start and played with a lot of intent, clearly wanting to get an early lead.
Russia hardly touched the ball yet.
What happened the hour after that I don't have any idea.

Thanks. Worked for a minute, and now it is down too. The score stood at 38-0 to the Netherlands with 10 minutes left.


Edit. It worked again for the last few minutes. FT 43-0.

Probably a protest against head coach.
It happens with us. The strike in Italian.

My congrets to Portugal. however, I would say both teams are of a same strength. Furthermore, they both are progressing. What they still lack, in my opinion is a strength of a pack.

When you lose three years in a row the very same kind of a game you can't claim both teams are of the same strength.

And I believe we've got better single players, but as a whole the claim is ludicrous.

I didn't watch the game but from what I've just seen on social media , the Portuguese faces look very relieved. Sounds like the conditions worked in their favor.

Shame that's the end if the road for such a strong Spanish side. Will they tour at all this year ?

Given there won't be a trip to Brazil for them, I'd bet on Kerman Aurrekoetxea and Gonzalo López Bontempo making the tour to South America with the senior side and Daniel Barranco and Juan Martínez returning to Sevens World Series.

Kenya qualify for the JWRT tournament after unseating Namibia whom are 5 time consecutive champions of the tournament.
