I totally missed the tournament, I had too much going on at the same time.

I'm very happy that the Teros won the matches that counted the most. Now they will have four international tournaments to play, with is a great improvement from 2017.

Interview with the president of Sudamerica Rugby: https://www.diariouno.com.ar/ovacion/ru ... 41004.html

He confirms that the Americas Seven Series will debut in November/December with two legs in North America. Bermuda, Trinidad, Mexico and USA are said to be interested in hosting those events. In January, the tournament moves to South America, most likely in Punta del Este and Viña del Mar. Peru wants to host it as well. The tender process will begin in March.

He also says that Chile wants a leg in the World Series. It doesn' seem likely though.

EXAMPLE of bloody *RUGBY IDIOCY* -- never seen in other sports

https://www.foxsports.com.au/rugby/rugb ... /standings

Image

If one does not understand ==> naive *foxsports* think that
*series points* are being amassed by playing matches one by one,
as in usual XVs tournaments

Hence, they tab *P* (played) and *PTS* (points)

And they could NOT find flag of SPAIN on www

I was just reading an article about the commonwealth games, I am slightly surprised by the format. I had assumed it was the usual for the World 7's series, but nope its a winner takes all in each group with semi-finals and a final.

Has anyone heard the reasoning why the format has changed ?, and I don't think I recall a 16 team tourny not having Quarter-Finals.

If so that makes Pool B and to some extent C real "pools of death" with 3 teams each very capable of beating the others on their day.

New Zealand will win pool C. England vs Australia is the toughest one.

Americas:
Canada

Africa:
Kenya
South Africa
Uganda
Zambia

Europe:

According to the official website the final is on the final day of the games and it has the following format:

Classification, Semi-finals, Gold and Bronze Medal Matches for Men and Women

PNG also defeated Russia. They seem to have a proper sevens program, or did they just import some Fiji / Samoa players?

All home grown as far as I know. They only had two weeks training together, so it's even more impressive.

I'm happy too for PNG's results.
Maybe they involved league players, I don't know. With the dream of the Olympics and considering the fact that 7s has not real scrums and mauls, they could attract many league players, which are largely the majority of rugby players in the archipelago

This Russia imports the best players from the sevens to the main team.

Rugby Canada and Vancouver are preparing to bid again to keep their place on the Sevens World Series. With how successful the tournament has been there so far and how good of a travel destination Vancouver is they should be a strong contender to remain part of the Series.

Why Vancouver can't host the womens tournament together, like Sydney? What are the issues?

Paris host the 2024 Olympics. I doubt they will be without a SWS round...

I doubt Russia will get a stop. London is unlikely to go anywhere and Sochi is a bigger risk than Paris. If either of them(Paris) where to be replaced I'd rather see Munich get the stop and have it tied in with Oktoberfest. Could be a party to challenge even Hong Kong. Start the season in Munich and end in London as stand-alone European legs. It wouldn't make sense to replace any of the other stops with a European one.

I'd rather see the Series expand to 14 stops. If there was money for such a venture.

October: Munich, Amsterdam/Rome/Sochi
November: Sydney, Auckland
December: Dubai, Cape Town
January/February: Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro
March: Las Vegas, Vancouver
April: Hong Kong, Singapore/Shanghai
May: Paris, London

As for why Canada's WSWS stop is in Langford instead of Vancouver, I'd guess because Rugby Canada owns Westhills and are stubborn? I agree that it would be a great tie in with the men's tourney in Vancouver. They are wanting to make Vancouver 7s bigger so it would be a great starting point.

Zero chance of Rio. No rugby public, no stadiums available (the stadium of the Olympics was temporary), and 40ºC in the summer. In Brazil the only possiblity is São Paulo's Pacaembu Stadium.

I only suggested Rio to tie in with Carnivale. I know Brazil wanted a stop last expansion, are they putting in a bid again? I still think they need a two stop South America leg to make it a real "world" series.

I think Carnival woudn't be good for rugby. Local people in Rio woudn't care about the sevens (because they barely know what rugby is) in such period, with loads of events. And people from other cities would struggle to go there as hotels will be full. I understand the logic (many people defend the Oftoberfest Sevens in Munich), but I can't see it working in Rio. Even football is usually postponed from that weekend there.

Maybe it could work in a city without strong carnival tradition, like Florianópolis (awesome place, it could be nice, good rugby), Brasilia (but too hot and few rugby...), Porto Alegre...

AFAIK the Brazilian Rugby Union is not bidding. Clearly sevens is not anymore their priority. Unless there is a big sponsors wanting it. I don't think Buenos Aires want it either. It is Chile that want the SWS in South America.
