After having defeated twice Arab Emirates (36-0, 50-0), Afghanistan won also against Pakistan, 15-7, in a placement match. They will battle with host Indonesia for the 9th place

Matches are currently suspended; I suppose due to the rain

Japan had a big struggle to beat Sri Lanka, winning 12 - 10 in the end.

And Hong Kong 19 - 7 Korea. Final therefore is Hong Kong v Japan.

Afghanistan beat Indonesia 29 - 12 apparently for 9th place.

I just saw the Day 1 results of the Asian 7s series in HK. Nice to see the Philippines have a good day and beating Korea 12-7 the first time since 2012. I'm still not sure why they weren't at the Asian Games ahead of teams like Afghanistan or Pakistan considering they played at the 2014 games.

I'm not sure the strength of the squads compared to the Asian Games but it looks like HK will romp home again.

My guess is Philippines still don’t have enough passport holders to be competitive at the Asian Games. UAE sent an all Emirati side and got wasted.

I found a good article about a Sri Lankan school team that has come over to NZ to train with and play local teams in Wellington. They've done well from what I've seen and beaten a lot of local schools - although not the strongest schools in Wellington and most of the best players are in rep teams at the moment plus the school season has finished. They look like they have the right body type for rugby especially the forwards which is unusual for Asia.

Inthi Marikar the former coach of the Sri Lankan national team brought them out. I don't know if the SLRFU want to get regular trips out here or not.

Totaly unexpected:

It is a known fact that all Armenians in Calcutta are die-hard rugby enthusiasts. But in the 2011 documentary, My Armenian Neighbourhood, owner of Old Kenilworth Hotel and coach of the Armenian College team, David Purdy, tells filmmaker Samimitra Das that Armenia is by no stretch a rugby playing nation. He says, "Before Armenians come to Calcutta, they are not rugby players. They learn it in the Armenian College."
