...but was leaked in that Spanish document that came out in July.

That listed:
Dubai (as men's)
Australia (as men's)
USA (as men's)
Japan (21/22 April)
Canada (26/27 May)
... and that was it.

Euro 7s - give as Brive (6/7 Jun) and Kazan (30 Jun/1 Jul) - and then World Cup (20/22 Jul) suggests little or no room in the calendar for a sixth round.

At a guess WR may be delaying things in the hope they might squeeze another round in somewhere? But TBH they are always late annoucing this publically - even though the teams have obviously known since July.

Is that the later version? Suggests WR are trying to shoehorn the French round in somewhere, which I suspect they are finding it hard to do.

There is one round less, but why is the Las Vegas round not included??(USA Sevens) also most top countries will be participating in April in the Commonwealth games in April 2018 on the Gold Coast.

Australia, Canada, England, Fiji and New Zealand, possibly Kenya and South Africa maybe HK and Uganda. interesting to see who goes.

HK ceased to be a member of the Commonwealth in 1997.
The Games teams will be the five Commonwealth teams from the World Series - Australia, Canada, England, Fiji and New Zealand - plus Wales, South Africa and Kenya.

Because World Rugby isn't about expanding women's Rugby in the country with the most Women/girls playing.

Viet Nam women team is trying to collect funds to play in november's Bangkok 7s http://www.bangkoksevens.com

The team is composed also by abroad-based vietnamese players and I think it would be the first ever rugby vietnamese national team, men's or women's
