Travelling from Madascar to Tunisia to play against only one team and then even lose is even more frustrating.
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.

Not only for anyone interested in Women's rugby, but also more specifically for the average South African women's rugby or in general any South African rugby supporter. This is an article written by a South African rugby supporter who started the Blitzbokke.com website while he was still based in Hong Kong.

http://www.blitzbokke.com/2018/07/tuks- ... ns-sevens/

It is also clear from the way in which it was written, that the author is also not holding back anymore.

The main reason this is happening is also due to the results of our club team that is starting to overshadow the performances of the National team. If one had to do a comparison between our results and that of the National team, it becomes frightening. Even though we compete in tournaments where there often are "lesser" teams, we have had better results in some matches against the same opponents. This is sad, as we are a club team and we had six new players in the touring squad who only started to play rugby this year. Even more sad is the fact that we are a club team, with a total players pool of about 30...

Strictly speaking there is also supposed to be a provincial level between club and national levels, but last year there was no provincial tournament for sevens in South Africa. One more reason we have such a huge problem. There are not enough matches locally to develop the game.

I have also heard via the grapevine that the National coach has a huge problem, because of the fact that there is no money available for the women. Compare this to all the other leading nations, where there is a drive and a huge effort towards equality between men and women. In order to fix this one would need to determine the root of the problem. At this stage it however appears that SARU is where the problem lies.

And at this point of my mini-rant, I believe the Japanese clarify the meaning of saru nicely 猿(さる)= saru = monkey

EDIT: And thank you to John Birch for this article... http://www.scrumqueens.com/news/tunisia ... mpics-line
I shared that in a few places to make some more noise...

French Guiana have a very good record indeed in the few international opportunities the get. If it wasn't for the fact that they are "part of France" they's be a real force in the region.

I am genuinely surprised about Mexico just been watching the matches, something has gone wrong in the preparations. they have put a lot of resources into the team. they actually have 2 national squads to develop depth and talent


John as I said in other forums I am not familiar with Guyana but I like what I see in the stream.

First victory for Mexico, and Venezuela is on fire. Guatemala apparently has just nine players, a big deficit for them
Congrats to the official website, they have a live score with line-ups and photos of all the players

After two rounds
Venezuela and Colombia 2 victories
French Guyana and Mexico 1 victory
Guatemala and Jamaica 0

After three rounds
Venezuela and Colombia 3 victories
French Guyana 2
Mexico 1
Jamaica and Guatemala 0

Canalina,
Thanks for point that out on Guatemala, I didn't pick on the fact they only came with 9 players rather odd. I seen photos and reports and they been targeting this tournament. wondering what's happened.

I am genuinely surprise about Venezuela with everything else going on I thought they would struggle, I would have had them right up there originally.

Wow, shocked about Mexico. I don't remember French Guyana ever playing before, is this their first tournament?

No - but as they are an overseas department of France they rarely get a chance to take part in tournaments as they are not 9and cannot become) World Rugby members.

But they have always been very good when they have had a chance to play. If they were allowed full access to Central American/Caribbean rugby their record - even before these Games - suggests that they would be one of the leading teams. I was not remotely surprised to see their final ranking.

Sad news if true after how well the team played in SFO. Gees, the US womens 7s programme has certainly gone through a number of coaches. Consistent off field issues afflicting the programme?

Suggit was fired...no idea why.

Jules McCoy was fired after the Olympics, she won a wrongful termination lawsuit against the Union. Supposedly they had a player revolt, and in reality Nigel didn't like her. She was just the best available in a short notice. Previously she'd been the Winningest women's 7s coach we had. And she's a damn good 7s coach.

Richie was one of her assistants, but funded by Atavus. Fire Jules, Promote Richie...don't have to pay his salary. Everyone I've talked to holds him in high regard as a coach and he was able to manage the personalities whilst bringing in a ton of new talent. Take 4th at RWC 7s and play the Ferns well...how does that get you fired. Where the men got embarrassed in their last game?

We have a culture problem.
