I would be interested to see how England recovers from the match, 3 day turn around compared to 7 for NZ.

very interesting results and very close.

Like your interview with Hope, one question.. You said Dual International? Does the USA see XV and 7's as different sports? For Non-American a Dual is someone who plays different sports such as Rugby Union/League for their country.

In the United States, although XVs and 7s are both Union codes. They're considered distinctly different sports by the USOC and NCAA. I had a long discussion with the commissioner of NIRA (NCAA Rugby Project), and for the NCAA right now. Rugby is XVs. For 7s to be added like XVs has or Beach Volleyball has it would have to go through the same Emerging Sports Process. So to an extent that's just me communicating with our US based audience.

New Zealand beats England for the Super Series Trophy and retakes the Number 1 ranking. France thrashed the Eagles, not a fan of the refereeing in that one. She kept the Eagles in the game as much as she could it seemed.
