... aaaaaand HT score was FT score too. I feel we missed a big chance of securing our RWC ticket in Scotland, but considering how Scotland pushed in the last minuted we must be happy.

Still a good result to go to Scotland and win, it should give the Spanish team confidence for the return leg. Over 2,000 at the game which was decent.

Hopefully Spain can get the job done in a few weeks.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like Spain v Scotland will be broadcast live on TV but there are already a couple of streaming:

Spain wins this game 15-10 (25-15 on aggregate) and will be at next World Cup.

Lana Skeldon suffered a serious injury, I hope we can hear good news about her.

Magnanimous words from the Scottish, coach, no excuses offered,

Scotland Women Head Coach Shade Munro said: “It was a very good contest given the difficult conditions. Both teams gave it everything.

“The difference between the two was that Spain were a bit more clinical and took their opportunities. They played most of the rugby in our half and put us under pressure and their scores ultimately came from that.

“We are disappointed but all the very best to Spain for the World Cup.”

The World Cup came a year too soon for Munro, I think.

45-7 to Hong Kong, completely unexpected to me

Hong Kong is very very near to qualify for its first ever XV World Cup, men or women
We may say it's the first chinese team to reach it

Japan leading 11-0 against Fiji at the middle of first half

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wg9yR9ZatoQ

You could expect more than 930 viewers of the live streaming, considering that Fiji is a rugby nation and that Japan has 120 millions inhabitants and this is a match determinant for the World Cup qualification

21-0 at halftime, Japan was always in fijian 22 area every time I saw

57-0 at the end, I think

FT 55-0 (8 tries, 3 conversions and 3 penalties)

Note that there are some little mistakes on World Rugby's timeline.
For example, the last try (a forward's try) was scored by Shiozaki (Number 20) and not Inoue (Number 21), behind the pack on the action.
Shiozaki replaced Bogidraumainadave just after her own try but WR didn't notice it and we didn't see the substitution on youtube (we just saw Shiozaki on the ground).

Japan : Shimizu (Kurogi 64) - Taniguchi (Kuwai 66), Tomita, Kato, Tsutsumi - Yamanaka, Tsukui (Inoue 68) - Y.Ito, Bogidraumainadave (Shiozaki 67), Sue - Sakurai, Mimura (Takeuchi 60) - Minami (M.Ito 74), Suzuki (Kobayashi 71), Saito (c) (Ebuchi 75). Arimizu (coach), Kondo (manager).
Fiji : Deku - Baleca, Vakaturi (Vodo 58), Lawedrau, Tamoi - Moceituba (Uluinayau 54), Rowati (Rokouono 69) - Moto (Rubuti 72), Leweniqila (c), Nagatalevu (Rubuti 62-66) - Rainforth (Lewatu 51), Ofakimalino - Yabakidrau (Naleweniikataga 69), Buadromo (Vakalolona 47), Vuni (Burnes 54). Bai (coach), Naucukidi (manager).
>>>>> Japan : 8 tries, 3 conversions, 3 pénalties. 4 P Shimizu 3-0, 11 T Shimizu 8-0, 18 P Shimizu 11-0, 36 CT Shimizu 18-0, 40 P Shimizu 21-0 - 43 T Taniguchi C Shimizu 28-0, 55 T Tsutsumi 33-0, 60 T Sakurai C Shimizu 40-0, 66 T Bogidraumainadave 45-0, 73 T Kurogi 50-0, 78 T Shiozaki 55-0.

And fun fact for Fiji, when Lewatu (18) replaced Rainforth (5), she went to the right wing and Baleca (14) became the lock !

I'm sure both Hong Kong and Japan saturday will battle for the victory, but perhaps it would be better to lose that game. The losing team will finish in the pool with Canada, New Zealand and Wales, the winning one will be included in the pool with France, Ireland and Australia. They seem all teams too much strong for Japan and Hong Kong, a part Wales; so I'd prefer to finish in their group

As we are already in 2017, any news about who will be to host the 2021 WRWC?

With AFL and NRL moving to have women's leagues, it would be good to see it in Australia. Brisbane groups phase, Sydney playoffs.

USA is cool too, but not sure about the attendances.

Italy would be nice too, but it would be the 4th in a row in Europe.

In a word, no. World Rugby have never managed to nominate a host for the next World Cup until after the previous one - no idea why, other than the fact that they really need to ensure that the host would be competitive - and a ideally automatic qualifier.

Realistically I think we can forget Australia as there no real interest in women's XVs (which is in decline faced with sevens) or New Zealand who plead rampant poverty whenever the subject is raised (unless Dr Farah Palmer can find a cure).

I think, unless the tournament revisits a previous host, it does (as you suggest) come down to USA or Italy. Both will have good potential venues, but both will also have question marks over crowds, and also possibly TV coverage. However interesting outside bets for 2021, given their participation this time, might be Japan or Hong Kong - especially the latter.

That is a very silly and insulting comment.
