Womens World sevens Series 2014-15

Postby YamahaKiwi » Sun, 12 Oct 2014, 06:51

Australia beat Canada 2-1 in their three game series on the Gold Coast 12-17, 17-12 and 17-15. The fact that Canada were right with them suggests Canada will again be right up there. The WSWS will have six stops this season. No Guangzhou so no Asian stop. For my mind it's a bit Americas and Europe heavy. should at least be one stop in FORU and one in Asia. IRB should stop being pigheaded about HKG in particular. Also will now be interesting to see if many team even bother going to HKG as with no Guangzhou a week later HKG no longer serves as a good warm up for teams that had been involved in WSWS a week later.

Six stops for the WSWS this season

Dubai 04-05 Dec (with men)
Sao Paulo 07-08 Feb
Atlanta 14-15 Mar
Langford, BC, Canada 18-19 April *new (Don't know why they don't do a two weekender with Atlanta)
London 15-16 May *new (with men - for 3/4th and final at Twickenham)
Amsterdam 22-23 May

About two weeks after I asked, NACRA has finally confirmed (via Twitter) that there will be a women's tournament in December, alongside the men.

A change to the women's series perhaps?

Round 1 Australia (New South Wales/CC7s) 24-25 Oct 2014 (incorporated with the CC7s just like has been done with Amsterdam)
Round 2 UAE (Dubai) 5-6 Dec 2014 (alongside men's)
Round 3 South Africa (Port Elizabeth) 13-14 Dec 2014 (alongside men's)
Round 4 Canada (Langford) 07-08 Feb 2015
Round 5 USA (Las Vegas) 13-14 Feb 2015 (alongside men's)
Round 6 Hong Kong (Hong Kong) 27-29 Mar 2015
Round 7 Brazil (Sao Paulo) 4-5 Apr 2015
Round 8 England (London) 16-17 May 2015
Round 9 Netherlands (Amsterdam) 22-23 May

Here at least every continent has a series although 9 rounds may be a bit much for IRB to swallow at the moment so if it's just 6 then perhaps CC7s, UAE, USA, HK, London and Amsterdam? I don't see why USA needs to have a tournament in Atlanta instead of in Vegas. I think as Canada and Brazil are stand alone need to get a CC7s or Amsterdam type tournament going alongside to draw in more spectators, create more of an atmosphere?

The organiser of the elite womens section at LV commented on the old forum that they tried to talk to the IRB but the IRB ignored them as they wanted to open a new market in the US. As I've said a number of times about the IRB, working with local event organisers ain't their strong point. They prefer to ride roughshod in many cases it seems, particularly with womens events, witness HKG, LV, and even London who after setting up a successful event were then left out of the WSWS.

IRB's attitude is all wrong. :(
