Why would it be decided by Goal average and where is that written? Why should not it be decided by the number of victories? Belgium lost only one game (the semi final against Lithuania) during both legs of the trophy while Lithuania lost 2 (against Belgium and Czech republic) and Ukraine lost 3 (Belgium, Lithuania and Israel). Belgium got aware of that rule after their semifinal loss against Lithuania and had to win the third place playoff by at least 50 points in order to finish 1st.

Without discussing any of the other arguments you expose, goalaverage is the same criteria for ties in overall standings used in Sevens World Series if I'm not mistaken.

BOTH POINTS ARE PERFECTLY VALID

Yes, WR uses cumulative points difference to solve ties in WSS
but this should be written in GPS manual as well, on page 27

This omission once again shows that RE staff is not up to the task

You are right that it should be in there, but this actually also does the job:
p. 29
"Rugby Europe has a policy to mirror the Sevens Tournament Formats of World Rugby’s Men’s and Women’s Sevens World Series."
https://www.rugbyeurope.eu/sites/defaul ... _final.pdf

So if in doubt check the rules of the SWS.
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.

Today the Universiade (http://www.universiade2019napoli.it) begins in Naples with the inaugural ceremony. The rugby competition will endure from friday 5 to sunday 7, following this schedule (CET)

Image

Eight teams between the men (Ita, Fra, Can, Jap, Rom, Rus, Arg, Saf), eight between the women (the same with Belgium instead of Romania).

The zone is one of the most beautiful on the earth (pollution, incivility and crime apart...): the island of Ischia, Naples, volcano Vesuvio, the archeological cities of Ercolano and Pompei, the island of Capri, the coast of Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano... The red mark indicates the place of the rugby competition, over the fields of a former NATO base.

Stumbled across this today as well - the Kenyan 7s program with half a million shillings (5000 US?) up for grabs for the series winner. I think the Prinsloo leg is the most famous of the events involved and might even draw foreign teams:

20th/21st July - Kakamega7s, Bull Ring (Hosted by Kabras)

27th/28th July - Kabeberi7s, Kinoru Stadium (Hosted by Mwamba)

Edgar the way you post about African rugby, and Kenyan rugby specifically is humbling. You really keep up to date with it. Hehe. You should come to Kenya for one of these legs, and considering you're an American citizen, you won't need a visa, just book a flight and watch raw talent at the grassroot level on display. Thanks. :)

Thanks, Neptune! I've always been a big fan of African rugby, with the Simbas among my favorite international teams. My only foray into Sub-Saharan Africa was Tanzania, and I spent most of my time there on Zanzibar :thumbup: 8-) I considered popping over the border to Mombasa but never quite made it, and now my travel days are over, I'm afraid.

World Rugby mistakenly put Guyana and Jamaica in the women's tournament and Mexico and T&T in the men's. Wrong, but I guess the right is only to swap T&T for Guyana and Mexico for Jamaica. That's what happens when your own staff doesn't know T3 rugby.

Does anyone know the georgian rugby team that competed at the St Petersburg 7s recently? I watched a few games and only player i recognised is Davit Niniashvili. It might be entire under 18 team,as they have euro under 18 next month.

Universiade, day 2 morning results

Men
Francia v Giappone 21-14
Italia v Canada 12-5

Women
Sud Africa v Argentina 34-7
Russia v Belgio 52-0
Giappone v Canada 29-0
Francia v Italia 35-0

Men: Japan is qualified to the semifinals, while I don't know if the second place of the pool goes to France (better overall points difference) or to Italy (better head-to-head points difference). In the other pool it is still all to be decided, despite South Africa is strongly favorite for the qualification

Women: Russia, South Africa and Japan already in semifinal. Italy, Argentina and Belgium out. France and Canada dueling this afternoon for the last semifinal place
