Awesome finish of the Brazilian Womens Series "Super Sevens". The last round was played last weekend and São José was leading the table with 8 points ahead of Niteroi (from Rio). The last tournament, in Curitiba, was dramatic, with São José (with Edna Santini back) falling in the quarter finals, beaten by Leoas de Paraisópolis (the club born in a São Paulo favela/slum famous for its rugby social project Rugby Para Todos... Leoas great players are Bianca Silva, that started rugby there, and Raquel Kochhann, a teacher in the project).

Niteroi went to the big final against Leoas and with the victory clinched the Series title by 1 point! Beatriz "Baby" Futuro Muhlbauer and Isadora Cerullo shone for Niteroi.

Rio's rugby in the top with its women.

In Japan a book called "Sevens" has just been published. Despite the cover, I think it's a "written" book and not a manga.
Author's name is Takahisa Igarashi. I'd like to read it but I can't understand japanese at all

I think it is fair to say that women's rugby has improved a bit since those days.

There is also a video somewhere out there of the frankly awesome-looking post-tournament party after the trophy presentation.

And it was a pretty impressive trophy too - I wonder what happened to it?

Wikipedia isn't the truth and there's an enormous error on the 2nd Women's Rugby League World Cup, a recopied mistake by many newspapers and even specialists (excepted some, in particular who participated) during the 5th Cup in 2017.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women%27s ... _World_Cup
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005_Wome ... _World_Cup

The 2nd WRLWC (the only one without a Men's) didn't happen in 2005 but in 2003, in North Harbour, from September 28th to October 12th.

From several web origins, found pool results seems to have been :
- 28/9 New Zealand 64-0 Cook Islands, 1/10 Cook Islands 30-16 Tokelau, 4/10 New Zealand 76-0 Tokelau
- 28/9 NZ Maoris 24-28 Australia, 1/10 NZ Maoris 44-0 Niue, 4/10 Australia 58-0 Niue
- 28/9 Samoa 12-29 Great Britain, 1/10 Tonga 4-44 Samoa, 4/10 Tonga 0-54 Great Britain

Then, there's an information on a match on 6/10 between Cook Islands and Great Britain (20-20) but I don't know if it's about a play-off or something else.
What was the qualyfing process ? It was maybe, but it's just a guess, a qualification for the semi-finals of the winners of the both first pools with the best runner-of, and a play-off between the worst and the winner of the third pool.


Semi finals happen on 8/10 : NZ Maoris beat Great Britain and New Zealand beat Australia (with unknown scores : if someone know them !!!).
And the final was on 12/10 : New Zealand 58-0 NZ Maoris (It's the most frequently quoted score although that other sources give 54-0).

Aimee Barrett-Theron will be the referee of SWD Eagles v Leopards in the Currie Cup First Division.

If I´m not mistaken, she´s the first woman to achieve that in South Africa.

I have all the scores for 2003 - I will try to find them and post them here. For the group stage matches, I agree except GB v Samoa - I have this as 28-12 (not 29-12).

For the 2nd stage - it was not semi-finals and finals.

There were 2 groups for places 1-6 (Top 2 teams in each group) - 3 matches in each group - New Zealand, Australia and Samoa in one group, NZ Maoris, Great Britain and Cook Islands in the other group. There was also a group for 7th-9th place (3 matches - Niue, Tokelau and Tonga).

After this, I think there was a final, 3rd place and 5th place matches.
