Sri Lanka beat The second leg champs South Korea with ease 22-5 and took the 3rd place in SL leg ,an the only try South Korea scored came of from a forward pass. surprised why they did not used the TMO when it is in place for these kinds of tries . a good leg for Sri Lanka

The nations already qualified for the San Francisco 7s World Cup. The first column regards men, the second column regards women. Green is qualified, red eliminated, white means still involved in the qualifiers. The list is just about the best 40 nations of the men's XV ranking; out of the list are qualified Zimbabwe men's and China women's team

No Bahamas, SVG, St Lucia. A pity we couldn't have at least 12 teams for 3 groups of 4 teams. Are USA and Canada just out because this is easier when it acts as a qualifier for other tournaments?

On december 8 and 9 Vanuatu will host the rugby 7s tournament inside the Pacific Mini Games program. It will be interesting to see which nations will compete; in the list of the nations admitted to the Games there are some of them which we usually don't see in rugby competitions like Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall, Norfolk... http://www.van2017.com/games/nations/

According to the site 13 out of the 24 nations are involved in Rugby 7s (or at least have invites), and two of those will be Australia and NZ.

Nice revamp for the Sudamerica Rugby Sevens: http://www.sudamericarugby.org/2017/10/ ... mos-meses/

As usual, Punta del Este and Viña del Mar will host the mini-circuit on the first two weekends of January.

Teams: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Colombia, Canada, United States, France, Ireland, South Africa, Germany and the best placed team in the Juegos Bolivarianos (Paraguay, Peru or Venezuela).

Excluding Argentina, the first two South American teams will book their ticket for the 7s World Cup and the World Series qualifier in Hong Kong. The first placed team will also take part in the Vancouver/Las Vegas leg of the world circuit.

For the 2018/2019 season, the idea is to expand the competition to the rest of the Americas adding two more legs in North America.

Sounds like Naburu's idea... but with other teams from Europe than Latin ones

It looks bizarre in my opinion.

We should have 1 tournament with just South American teams. Let the teams from outside be in Punta and Vina, but a proper South American tournament should exist apart.

As I've said, I would have preferred Spain, Portugal and Italy.

But France, Ireland and Germany have links to Uruguayan private schools, and South Africa is best for marketing the event.

I think the logic is creating a stronger multiple tournament series that becomes a viable product. THat should be a primary goal. Then you use it as a qualifier which is much better than just doing a one off.

You’ll always have extra teams either pre qualified or to help improve the competition. At least with multiple legs it makes it less of an issue (less luck involved).

No surprises so far aside from PNG's comeback attempt. It will be certain that the 5th Place finalists will be in the World Cup Sevens. I'm guessing PNG and Tonga.

Bit of a strange format in terms of the 13th placed team (Tuvalu) getting no matches at all on Day 2. They could have had a play-off (losers of 11/12 v Tuvalu) to determine 12/13 place.

American Samoa might give PNG a tough game. Likewise the Cooks against Tonga. I think all 4 of these teams have a good shout to get 5th/6th. American Samoa lost by only 19 to Fiji in the group stage, and Cooks lost by a reasonable 36 to NZ.

There were some storm delays, but these two are heading to Hong Kong.

PNG 22-7 American Samoa

Tonga 5-12 Cook Islands

Fifth place winner goes to the World Cup and Commonwealth Games.

EDIT: I initially thought that two bids are at stake in this tournament. Turns out the one remaining bid is for the 2017 Pacific Mini Games winner.
