Argentina and Brazil to the Final Cup.
Argentina also takes the place for Las Vegas, and to the Qualy for Hong Kong.

Horrible performance by Uruguay. The union should give much more support to women's sevens.

59 victories in a row now for Brazil in the South American Womens Championship. World record for a seven-a-side competiton? 12nd Brazilian title in 13 tournaments (Brazil was absent in 2015).

Note for Paraguay. Best result ever and they almost defeated Colombia. Womens rugby boomed recently in Paraguay, great job.

Another nice news. The Brazilian Rugby Union is finally using the nickname "Yaras" for the Brazilian Women's team. No official anouncement, but their social media is using it.

Yaras or Iaras ("Y" for the Tupi language word, "I" for Portuguese form) is a mythical Tupian Amazonian mermaid https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iara_(mythology).

There is an Iara sculpture on Brasilia's presidential palace:

Without question this is a record, for a specific tournament. Only the European 7s competes with S America for the number of tournaments there have been, and obviously no European team has any serious unbeaten run. Asia is similarly unpredictable.

South African are the only other team with a significant unbeaten run as - like Brazil - they have never lost to continental opposition, but there have not been anything like as many African tournaments, they tend to feature fewer teams, and South Africa have not entered them all.

USA and Canada have never lost to anyone else in RAN/NACRA but have pbviously beaten each other - and most of the time do not bother entering, and there have been only a handful of Oceania tournaments and no-one is unbeaten in them anyway.

FER is launching a new 7s club competition in Spain under Copa de la Reina banner. It will consist of three rounds to be played during June and July.

It's all part of an ambitious plan dubbed "Proyecto Mujer y Rugby" to be financed thanks to Iberdrola sponsorship, although one can argue whether potential World Series relegation may be a big hurdle for further development:

South Africa only missed the 2012 tournament in Morocco as it doubled as the 2013 world cup qualifier - they had already automatically qualified for the 2013 world cup (they finished in the top 4 in the 2009 world cup).
