Made just a quick calculation and I could be wrong, but apparently everyone between New Zealand, Canada and England could be world #1 at the end of this week. One necessary condition for a first place of Canada or England is anyway a new zealander loss with Ireland, event that appears quite unlikely. Italy could overcome USA in 7th place (best italian ranking ever?) if the eagles will lose both the games with France and at least one of them with a gap larger than 15 pts

According to the report from yesterday: http://www.planetrugby.com/news/georgia ... y-council/

it has appointed Emilie Bydwell and Wang Shao-Ing to the Women’s Advisory Committee. I would be interested to see who from South America is coming on board, my read that is going to be on Women's advisory committee unless I misread the article. I want to see what they are bringing to the table and how will they improve Women's Rugby. odd choice in my opinion.

An apparently young woman, madame Boro Rolande, has been re-elected president of the Burkina Faso rugby federation. I don't remember perfectly but I think she's not the only woman president of a rugby national federation in the world; the ghanian one was (and maybe still is) a woman and I vaguely remember other one or two women presidents in tier III nations. It sounds strange to have a woman president in Burkina Faso because we use to consider the central Africa people less emancipated than us and because Burkina Faso has not even a woman national team

Just saw the score online, looks like NZ won comfortably. Not unexpected.

No more women's XV games until the ARC starts on December 9.

The number of games played by Italy with the various opponents according to a quick and not so rigorous research. The * indicates the teams Italy is going to play with in 2017

18 FRA *
16 SCO *
16 WAL *
15 ENG **
14 IRE *
11 SPA *
9 NED
7 SWE
7 GER
5 RUS
1 GBR
1 USA *
1 NZE
1 KAZ
1 JAP
1 BEL
1 SAM

0 AUS, CAN, SAF, ARG, ROM, GEO, FIJ, CZE…

PS: it seems that Bianca Farella, the most known not-italian-but-with-italian-roots-player, has never matched Italy: not at the World Cup where Italy doesn't play since 2002, not at the Olympics where Italy was absent, not in any test match (see above), not in the 7s World Cup (I checked), perhaps not in the 7s World Series (I think Italy never played in the 7sWS)

Spanish coach says they've been sent an invitation by Wales to play before next W6N and they are holding discussions with Ireland and a second-string England team:

Austria
First Women-XV game for years. Donau beat CZ Barbarian 19:17. I´m confident, that Austria Women will return on the XV-screen soon.

Interesting answer from Spanish coach Yunque during a chat in MARCA:
"There are two proposals: one is a four nations tournament with Scotland, Wales, Italy and Spain that is promoted from Scotland; the other is promoted from Rugby Europe and the Netherlands, involving Russia, the Netherlands, Spain and last-placed team from W6N, with a similar schedule to Rugby Europe Championship and the will to force non-European teams touring Europe in Autumn to play these teams. We understand something must be pushed forward, otherwise women's XV will be reduced by a lot in Europe, since we don't have a regulated test match window like men do".

Idiot players…
During a match of italian men's serie A the fullback of Vicenza, Bruno Andres Doglioli, knocks down from behind the referee Maria Beatrice Benvenuti, already refereeing at the Olympic Games and touch judge few days ago in the first stage of the 7sWS.
Apparently, he just received a 3 years ban

Last friday night was historic Brazilian women's rugby with the final of the first Womens XVs competition in Brazil, the São Paulo Championship.

Rio Branco* beat BandUSP by 13-12.

1 try+1conv+1penalty+1drop goal vs 2 tries + 1 conv.

To make the competition possible many São Paulo clubs joined forces. Rio Branco, that decided to focus on womens XVs, instead of sevens, played with a couple of players from Pasteur, Leoas da Paraisópolis, Cásper Líbero and PUC, while Band Saracens and USP played together (half-half). SPAC and São José, that finished 2nd and 4th in the Brazilian Sevens Series (Super Sevens) decided to be out of the XVs experiment.

Germany lost a match against British Army with 25:29 in Heidelberg this saturday. Last game of captain Ninja Duri who has played 28 times for Germany (don't know about official caps).
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.

The women 6N will be shown live in Italy by Eurosport, while there's still no certainty about a possible live transmission of the U20 tournament. It's meaningful (even if not completely surprising) that a tv channel estimates more attractive women's rugby than men's U20 rugby

Ireland top of the table after beating Italy 23 - 7 with the new Bonus point system they look comfortable for the home match against France..

Looking forward to the match at Donnybrook and Scotland v Wales
