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).

Florianópolis hosted this weekend the Super Sevens Qualy, the tournament that defined the last 4 core teams of Brazilian Super Sevens, the Brazilian Womens Sevens Series.

Band Saracens (SP), Leoas da Paraisópolis (SP), Delta (PI) and Desterro (SC) were the top 4 teams in the tournament and will join Curitiba (PR), Niterói (RJ), São José (SP) and SPAC (SP) (the 4 best teams of 2016 Super Sevens) as the season's core teams. The 2017 Super Sevens will have 6 tournaments, from May to October.

http://www.portaldorugby.com.br/noticia ... per-sevens

Leoas and Delta will be core teams for the first time, replacing Charrua and Vitória. Both Leoas and Delta are amazing histories! Leoas is the club of Rugby para Todos, a social project that teached rugby in São Paulo's second biggest favela, Paraisópolis. All the girls are from Paraisópolis with about 19-20 years old. Awesome.


Delta is from Piauí state, in Brazilian Northeast, one of Brazil's poorest states. Delta was born in local Federal University and they become famous of travelling 40 hours by bus to be able to compete in Super Sevens, making impact results in the last year. Well deserved their new status of core team (and all core teams receive the travel costs from the Brazilian Rugby Union, what will be precious for Delta).

Yes, I agree. I think the third must be Fiji. The 12 teams involved are the 11 core teams and Japan as hosts, Colombia aren't involved. My guess is that 4 is France and 5 is Russia. The Brazilian is either really ugly or wearing a carnival mask.

Yes, now I've recognized France and Russia. Still some doubts about Fiji, but as Nedrugby said it's the only nation left

AROI (Indian Ocean Islands) held their first women's 7s tournament 18-19 March in Alarobia, Madagascar.

All match results were not reported, and I'm not sure what the format was. Day 2 seems to have all the 4 teams in a round robin, but there were also a few games on Day 1 reported in Mauritian news - I'm not sure how these fitted in. I think perhaps a series of friendlies - Réunion also won 1 and lost 1 on Day 1.

DAY 1
Madagascar 'B' 17-0 Mauritius
Mauritius 22-12 Mayotte

DAY 2 (19 March)
Réunion ?-? Mayotte
Madagascar 43-0 Mauritius
Réunion 39-0 Mauritius
Madagascar 65-10 Mayotte
Mayotte 26-0 Mauritius
Madagascar 24-10 Réunion

Yeah all the best, but i see the team is missing its best player Janet Okello and am surprised the federation and media have not talked about it in their articles. In the last leg of the KRU women's league, all national team players skipped the event except Janet, which made me question if she will go or not........

Janet Okello is their fastest player and most prolific try scorer but I think that their best player is Celestine Masinde. Quick herself but also has a very good rugby brain.
