USA Eagles 7s-AUS Wallaroo 7s played a five matches as part of Wallaroo 7s prep for the Commonwealth Games. Labeled as Falcons and Pearls...neither were the development sides. That is a thorn in my cereal. USA went 1-4 against Australia.

Probably for legal purposes. I guess that World Rugby mandates which tournaments can have full teams.

I'd be surpried if that were so. I suspect that, as the teams are semi-pro/pro, it may just be that the players are paid a larger match fee if they are playing for the full team rather than the development side.

No I think he's right JB. Outside of SWS or official regional tournaments series, WR was stopping mens defacto national teams from being called the national team name.

Little bit late news but NZRFU said they will bid to have a combined mens & womens NZ7s. This after they were heavily criticised in the NZ media by Portia Woodman at the Sydney 7s.

The Women's 7's National team for Australia is known as the Pearls the men's are known as Thunderbolts. I guess all the other nicknames have been taken by the other sports which is a common feature in OZ for their sporting teams.

From Australian Captain Sharni Williams:

"It's awesome to see we're actually being classified next to sports like the Matildas, like the Hockeyroos, the Diamonds," Williams said.
"Those sports have been around for a long time, they've got nicknames for their actual sport where we don't have one.
"We're just called the Australian women's sevens team . when we go to a domestic tournament we're named the Pearls, that could maybe cross over, but definitely we need to get one by the Olympics."


as of yet there is no nickname when going abroad.

Belgium aims high at Hong Kong, they say they are flirting with semipro status and have taken the tournament pretty seriously:

During the men's ARC III West (24-27 april in Beirut, with Lebanon, Qatar, Iran and Jordan) the women 7s teams of Lebanon, Qatar and Syria will play a little tournament on their own.
Is it the all-time debut for Qatar and Syria? I don't remember

I think it's the début of all 3 - at least in terms of matches against other nations. Lebanon seems to have played as "Beirut Select" in the 2016 Dubai 7s "Gulf Women" tournament. "Doha Ladies" also competed representing Qatar.

Good, an other little step ahead for women rugby!

I'm mostly happy for syrian team because I suspect that we western people made a useless, enormous, terrible mess in their country

Antilles-Guyane 7s tournament in Kouru (French Guyane), some results

Guadeloupe - Guyane II : 21 - 0
Guadeloupe - Guyane I : 0 - 19
Guadeloupe - Martinique : 26 - 5

First place final: Guyane I v Guadeloupe 15-10
The third place final should have been Martinique v Guyane II, I think there were no other participating teams

Guyane won the women's Tournament Antilles-Guyane for the sixth year in a row

there will be an international 7s tournament in Bonn, organized by BTHV, who only have a youth setup until now. I think an extremely dedicated Argentinian runs the club.
