Yes, but last year they had Hong Kong and Sudamérica Rugby just published that South American teams will have 2 spots in the 2018 Hong Kong Sevens. So they have just confirnmed there will be a second division tournament.

According to ScrumQueens the San Francisco women World Cup will have just knock out stages, starting from the round of 16. No pool. At first sight it seems a rude move (even if the article explains they were forced to that decision), but maybe it will result to be anyway an interesting show. The major doubts concern the number of games (just four per team, while usually they have six) and the fact that eight nations will be out of the medals already friday morning

This WC short qualification format is probably a first for any team sport. I see it as a compromise to the Olympic Program.

I had to re-read the article twice. this may turn out to be an interesting tournament.

That format seems too extreme and too unpredictable, like match play golf.

So Scotland and Germany were promoted after two tournaments from the European Women's 7s Trophy to next year's GP Series.
Scotland won both tournaments. Germany finished 2nd in both tournaments beating 3rd Ukraine and 4th Romania each in one of the semi-finals.
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Eusebio Quevedo is no longer Spanish 7s coach, citing professional conflicts with his teaching career: http://www.ferugby.es/noticias2.php?tit ... 20femenino

I wonder whether Yunque will return to 7s after WRWC and somebody else takes the reins of XV side.

The incoming Euro U18 7s enlarged a bit: now it involves a Championship with 12 teams (included Usa and Canada) and a Trophy with 8 teams

http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/competitions/ ... ampionship
http://www.rugbyeurope.eu/competitions/ ... u18-trophy

Last year there were 15 teams (included Usa and Canada), so they made a good addition
http://old.rugbyeurope.tv/group-310.htm

The new teams, I checked, are Poland, Belgium, Latvia, Scotland and Georgia, all inserted in the Trophy competition

The European U18s 7s kicks off tomorrow in Vichy.

Pool A: FRA ITA IRE SWE
Pool B: USA ENG WAL RUS
Pool C: CAN SPA POR NED

Obviously USA and Canada don't count towards the European rankings so I suppose even if one of them wins the tournament they wouldn't be the RE champions. Not sure how that works. I'm guessing numbers 13 and 14 will be relegated to next year's trophy. The Dutch girls are in a tough group so if they end up in the bowl on day 2 I guess it would leave them one match to stay up. Apparently it is quite an inexperienced team with only four of the squad having played in an international tournament before.

One other thing to remember is that this is the Youth Olympic qualifier - six teams altogether, one from each continent. So this will presumably be both the European and North American qualifier.

Really? I thought a different European tournament was going to be held next Spring in order to determine YOG qualifiers.

Sweden seem to think this is the qualifier http://www.rugby.se/Landslag/NyheterLandslag/womens7su18championshiplive

And I've not seen anything else in the Rugby Europe calendar - but admittedly with RE anything is possible.

Well, I guess that makes sense - but would have made even more sense if RE had told everyone (including Sweden) or maybe not have had USA and CAN taling part?

Yes, silly me... I haven't noticed that Scotland is absent, so I thought Portugal was in the qf together with Usa, Can and five 6N

South Africa squeaked past Kenya in the final after Kenya were reduced to six players.

In the European U18s England romped past Wales in the final. Nice roundup by Scrumqueens here: http://www.scrumqueens.com/news/england ... u18s-title
