My thoughts exactly, what is the strategy? how those this ties into the overall women's program? I haven't heard anything either.

John - Have you heard anything through the grapevine?

Edit: Final score: 39-5 for Canada.


The second game was much of the same. 37-10 was the final for the second game. Canada wins the CanAm Cup 76-15 in aggregate.

Well, it's like the first time Sudamérica Rugby mention women's XV at all. It's a first step.

Do someone (John?) knows the lines-up of the England Cup final, played two or three weeks ago?
I'm curious to know if there was also an italian player between the triumphing Harlequins, but nor the club neither the RFU have published the details of that final. There are three italian girls this year in the Harlequins: Furlan, Sillari and Busato. The first two were surely absent in that final (played, I think, by the younger athletes and not by the best teams) but the girl indicated by an arrow in the photo below resembles Jessica Busato. Was she her?

Yes, they are Aylesford. This year Aylesford Bulls are the women side of the Harlequins, or something like that

Anyway, watching the photo I'm pretty sure that that girl was really italian Busato. A confirmation would be welcome, but I'm quite sure she is her

Thank you Thomas. In absence of proofs, I've decided she was her... So this year two italian players lifted the England Cup: Michele Rizzo (Leicester Tigers) the men's one and Jessica Busato (Aylesford Harlequins) the women's cup :thumbup: :thumbup:

Time by time we ear news about chairwomen of national federations or women coaches of national teams. Yesterday I learned that both the Guinea Conakry rugby federation and the Mauritius rugby federation have a woman president
Mauritius: https://s15.postimg.org/f503zys4b/mauritius.jpg

It would be nice to collect all the names of these women

Not sure if French Guiana has played a 15s match before (men or women).

Their U-18 and U-16 men (as well as their women) all played against "Panther's Police" from Guyana (does this club exist under this name?) in Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni, French Guiana.

The women's result was:
11th March 2017: French Guiana 55-5 Panther's Police

Note - the Guyanese club was also described as "Club Panther Rugby Police Union".

GRFU wrote:International Invitational Rugby Tournament
Guyanese Ruggers traveled over 479 km on land and river to make history in St. Laurent, French Guiana at an Invitational Rugby Tournament hosted by the Territorial Committee Rugby Guyana. The Male Ruggers competed in the under 16 and 18 categories with 12 and 7 aside matches respectively, while the Females clashed in a 7s match at The René Long stadium on Saturday, March 11, 2017.
The Guyanese saw losses in the under 16 and the women 7s matches while the highlight of the evening saw the under 18’s winning the trialing 7s match against Stage Cayennaise Mixed Team 21-19. For the victors, tries were registered by Glenroy Poole, Lloyd Anderson and Michael Barrow with all of Kevin Wills’ conversions being accurate secured the winning trophy.

Botswana RFU say this was not a test but rather an uncapped friendly for the "Botswana Vultures".

We have now found a report - see http://www.scrumqueens.com/news/botswana-beat-zimbabwe

On Serge's rankings (68 countries), Botswana (66th before the game) advances to the 54th*, Zimbabwe (68th and the last one before) to the 64th.

* Botswana is now far before Portugal (61st... but 15th on World Rugby's)

"Garbarone" should of course be "Gaborone".

Since Botswana has only previously played Namibia (Namibia's only ever match) and Zimbabwe has only ever played Zambia (Zambia's only ever match), it's difficult to give these teams a meaningful ranking compared to other ranked teams.
