As Victor said over on the Woman's forum the woman's series is expanding including at Hamilton. The other thing I noticed today in our news is the NZRU plans to alternate the Hamilton leg (both woman's and men's) from 2021 with Fiji (Suva). The reasons they gave for it including helping the Fijian Union, the love for the game there and to keep interest high for the Hamilton leg.

The concerns listed were the state of ANZ Stadium, the distance from local accommodation and Nadi International Airport (As their are only flights to & from Suva from Sydney & Auckland). But I hope this goes ahead as Fiji has for a long time deserved a leg of the series.

Here is our latest story on USA Rugby ... interviewing the guy who made The Pioneers. Nice guy called Bruce Southwick. Gentle giant.

Are any nations using the olympic loophole in the 7s series this year to try to re-qualify any players?

Interesting question. Will try to find out. Could be an interesting write-up.

Germany announced plans last November to get Manasah Sita (Zimbabwe) qualified.
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.
