Also posted this into the 2020 Olympics topic in the men's section.

Women’s Trophy provides pathway for Asia teams in Brunei

The Asia Rugby Women’s Sevens Trophy will take place on October 20-21 in Brunei, with 10 teams competing in the annual competition.

With a place on the main series up for grabs, all 10 teams will be looking to be a part of the top sevens competition in 2019 and play a part in Olympic qualification.

https://www.asiarugby.com/2018/10/11/as ... ns-trophy/

So this is another "indirect" qualification tournament for the Olympics with the winners gaining promotion into the Asia Region qualification tournament proper next year.

This is - I think - only the sixth 0-0 in the history of women's international sevens (in nearly 6,200 matches):

12/11/2006 Guyana 0-0 Jamaica at Garrison Savannah (NAWIRA Championship)
03/06/2007 Wales 0-0 Spain at Lunel (FIRA-AER European Top 10)
26/07/2010 Guyana 0-0 Jamaica at Georgetown (NACRA Sevens)
04/11/2011 Indonesia 0-0 Malaysia at Singapore Cricket Club (Asian Sevens)
16/06/2012 Italy 0-0 Sweden at Ameland (European Series)
13/10/2018 Kazakhstan 0-0 China at Colombo (Asian Sevens)

Packed crowds in Argentina watching women's (and men's) sevens - and not all running away when the women's games are on but staying on and cheering on Colombia.

I wonder if this might just change a few opinions in Argentina?

Just a side note: they are all above the equator line.
A 0-0 never happened south of Equator
Ok, I suppose it's not the most interesting thing you have heard today : )

Canada v Colombia 24-19 in the YOG bronze final.
I don't know how much these teams are representative of the real strength of a nation but the competitiveness of Colombia is surprising. They already defeated Kazakhstan 36-0 in the pool

Chris Browne's interim tag has been lifted as the Women Eagles 7s coach. Not that it was actually an open application.

First time I seen this type of AD:

Is Nigeria starting to take their Rugby seriously?? or just the run on the mill ex-pats like the Men's tend to do?

The Torneo Valentín Martínez this year (9 and 10 November in Uruguay) has added importance as the winner will qualify for the Pan American Games next year in Lima (South American teams get a second chance in May at the South American 7s).

I just added the 2015 and 2016 results to my website, but I couldn't find the result of the 5th place match in 2016 (Chile v Paraguay) - only that Chile had won in extra time. Does anybody have the score? I have all the results from 2011 to 2017 involving national teams except this one.

In 2017 there were eight nations in the Asia championship and seven in the trophy, but Korea (for some reason) played both of them.
This year there are eight nations in the championship and ten in the trophy, so an increasing of 4 teams!
They should be Brunei, Indonesia, Guam and Uzbekistan. Let's hope no last second forfeits

In the end I'm glad we missed QF by a point. It would have been a joke to advance while USA and China miss out just because Mexico got invited. Americas need to merge as soon as possible (Brazil, Colombia, even Argentina would have been more deserving) and World Series need to be expanded so we stop this goalaverage BS.

Saturday's Result

Costa Rica 25 - Panama 7
Panama 24 - Barbarians 17
Guatemala 10 - Costa Rica 0

The Barbarians are players from Costa Rica that didn't make the national selection. Which begs the question. what has happened to EL Salvador??

I agree Brazil and Colombia would have been more worthy, not sure about Argentina. but the issue of Women's Rugby needs addressing. Mexico has been in recent times all ra ra but when they get invited to big events they are found wanting.

And Mexican underachievement is made even worse by TV commentators efforts to try to justify how much they are improving and how much they changed from Day 1 to Day 2. Come on, we're not blind.

I felt the same way about Brazil (both men and women) for a long time. I thought they were given a lot of advantages just because of the potential market, but they seem to be coming good. We should maybe just be a bit patient with Mexico.

But for Brazil there was a reasoning: they were going to be at the Olympics, they needed experience so they wouldn't look out of place at the first showing of 7s at the Olympics.

The Mexico match was a rout, Spain did them over.

USA match against Australia was awesome.
