Today, in South American soccer, CONMEBOL has announced that from 2019 onwards, clubs will only be allowed to play Libertadores/Sudamericana if they have a women's team too, with senior AND junior squads competing in official national competitions.
http://espn.uol.com.br/noticia/634416_c ... a-novembro

I don't know if other sports organizations have this kind of rules, but I really liked the idea.

For me this is something World Rugby could do to boost women's XVs. Make the countries have an active women's XV national team to play the men's Rugby World Cup from 2023. Something like in 2022 all countries that want to play the RWC should have played at least 1 full women's XV test. And from 2023 to 2027 all teams should have played a women's XVs competition every year, making it necessary that all continental union have active women's XVs tournaments, with a minimum of 2 matches each.

Of course if WR provides money more can be done and made necessary, but this is the minimum.

Is there a list of November's tests/tours for women's teams?

I wish that they would adopt this then move it on to all men's teams that pay international rugby should have women's teams that play international rugby.

Wales 15-0 Scotland. Apparently it was uncapped?

How much of this Scotland team will be in the WC qualifies?

No really obvious names missing, I think?

The photo of the "first french woman rugby referee", Arlette Bouvier, realized in 1979

Is there a chance she is the first ever woman rugby referee?

No. Far to late.
Robin Timmins started her refereeing career 1968 in Sydney.

Looks like we have a bit of confusion about Saturday's game between Wales and Scotland.

Scotland and Wales are now saying it was not a test (though Welsh reports etc. were unclear until we asked them)

But World Rugby are listing it like a test - http://www.worldrugby.org/match/24113 - and including it in the list of games on their rankings page. Wales ranking points did not change, but given the result probably wouldn't

To be honest, I am awaiting to hear from the WR Conference next week and see what comes out of the event in terms of Women's Rugby is in the agenda on the first day.

FT: England 10-5 France. It was tied at 5 all with four minutes remaining when France got yellow carded for a dangerous tackle.

Rochelle Clark ties Jason Leonard's 114 cap milestone (most caps for England)

Kazakhstan are due to play Hong Kong in Hong Kong twice next week (16th & 20th, King's Park HK, KO 7.30pm & 11am).

Very low key as apparently Kaz are suspended from WR for 6 months for some admin crimes. So these cannot be "tests", just "joint training".

Was this the reason of Kazakhstan's withdraw from men's and women's world cup qualifiers?

Do you know if someone of the three test matches of the weekend will be available live on streaming?

England v New Zealand is #2 versus #1 of the world, but the black ferns have four points of advantage in the ranking and I think England can't overcome them, neither with a large victory

Friday's Scotland v Spain live on BBC Alba, whose streaming is not viewable outside UK

I hope Ireland's and England's matches will be shown by Irfu and Rfu websites; sometime they do

When Glasgow Warriors met Canada as RWC warm-up I remember to have watched that game thanks to a BBC Alba official streaming, so maybe we are lucky enough...

The game will be livestreamed at https://www.youtube.com/user/IrishRugbyTVOfficial!


I see a number of 7s players on this list so I assume that they have been released from 7s. The name that I am very surprised to see is Karen Paquin ... I don't understand how she is not part of the 7s anymore. Or has she given herself a break from 7s?

I think the 7s players you see in this roster are all dual-code, but I guess we'll see if they show up on the 7s squads later this month...

HT: Canada 24-0 Ireland.

Canada's passing was sloppy to start but has shaken the rust off. Ireland's just getting dominated in the scrums and rucks. Canada's a much more physical side.

Lots of knock ons on both sides...
