The under 18 euro champs.
Did number 4 and 11 swap jerseys for Georgia? There faces dont resemble the jersey number.
Georgia got some class under 18 players,looking forward to there development. All of them played well. Speed power skills are a delight to see.
3 of them we may see at under 18s fifteen a side comp next year, Shvangiradze flanker,Mgaloblishvili the U.S based centre,and Niniashvili fullback.

Good job by Polish organisation. They put the Spanish anthem with lyrics :oops:

For those who don't know, it's associated with Francoism... Created during Primo de Rivera's dictatorship, replaced during II Republic, then retrieved after the Civil War. Not a small mistake.

Congrats to Ireland, lost the final 12-26.

Why there are points awarded to the teams? Is it just an inadvertence or is there a meaning?

Probably their website ranking only works with points :D

I was positively surprised by Germany. The quarter-final-win against Ireland was absolutely within reach. Those are the important games to grow mid-to-long-term and the guys will learn from this kind of defeats.

We have at least 6 teams who can beat each other if things go their way. That's really great.

In ceterum censeo: shame on the Excuse-Shame Nations England, Scotland and Wales for not taking part in this competition. Not sure about Italy (maybe they got relegated last year, but with Luxembourg being there I kind of doubt it).

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.

I doubt Italy was relegated, they finished near the podium if I recall correctly. They just renounced to this tournament (as our girls side renounced to the homologue women's tournament).
About England and Wales, it has to be said that their U18 XV teams are now playing in South Africa (there's also France)

World Fire&Police Games, somewhere in China. Rugby 7s senior tournament (18-35 years)
Gold ITALY
Silver FRANCE (Paris Police)
Bronze CAMBODIA (Phnom Penh Police)

Not so frequent to see Cambodia winning a medal in rugby, even if it has to be said that there were just three teams competing : )

Since when is a private fun trip worth more than an European championship in an Olympic sport? Their choice, but if World Rugby wasn't a total joke this would lead to consequences like excluding their senior teams from 7s competitions. But we all know it won't as rugby is not fair.

- Take it with a pinch of salt but it seems that the second division of the 7s circuit is happening with twelve nations participating. The first eight teams qualify for the final in Hong Kong. He said that the two legs of the South American Series will be part of this circuit. No further details for now.


Copied carbonero's post from the South America thread, because this is great news, if it is really a thing.
What I don't like is the 8 team "final". Why play a series, when then once again a single tournament decides? HK can be the final stage, but with all teams and after that overall rankings should determine who gets "promoted".


Further to this, I noticed an article in the SCMP, which along with conformation HK's stop in the series for the next few years, it suggested that the second tier series would be a three stop series, with the final stop possibly being HK (suggested by the author). If thats correct, I wonder if they will combine two earlier events in the calendar or have a stand alone event with just the 12 teams.

More news about the 2020 Hong Kong Sevens:

https://www.scmp.com/sport/rugby/hk-sev ... ifier-2020

My impression is that the "three-event series" comprises Punta del Este, Viña del Mar and Hong Kong.

So the 12 teams play Punta del Este, Viña del Mar, and the top 8 in points advance to Hong Kong.

Make sense.

I'd like to see Roma Sevens and Oktobersevens as legs in the future.

At least Oktoberfest Sevens deepens only on the Qualification of the Wolfpack to the World Series . The Moment they make the cut this will be no problem for WR And you will have Munich within 2 years at a host city in the World Series, Business can be very simple if necessary

I can't see enough enthusiasm for 7s in Italy to make it a successful event, but of course I hope to be wrong

San Marino International Cup (first edition)
1 Switzerland
2 Monaco
3 a club from Grenoble (Fra)
4 San Marino

I don't know the scores

Venezuela won Sudamerica Rugby's Copa Desafio Volaris Sevens, that we can call Sudamerica Rugby's men's second division. Amazing.

It was played in San Jose, Costa Rica. The men's competition had 7 teams (Mexico hasn't played). It was a round robin followed by 3rd place and Final.

The final result is inverted. The right is Venezuela 12-05 Costa Rica.

Day 1 Costa Rica win over Peru is pretty impressive. Peru seems to have declined a lot in men's sevens. Good final result for Honduras too.

Final standings: 1 Venezuela, 2 Costa Rica, 3 Peru, 4 Guatemala, 5 Honduras, 6 Panama, 7 El Salvador.

It's interesting that women's "SELECC CA". Was it "Seleccion Centro America"?
It would be maybe useful if repurposed on XV, with a women's centroamerican select to play maybe Brazil or Colombia in some test match
