I do worry about what will happen to Brazilian rugby post-2016. If they are not in the WSWS (and I cannot see them getting back as things stand) the money will quickly dry up.


I agree, but it wasn't the money from WR that was doing the difference for Brazil. What is determinant is the money from "Lei de Incentivo ao Esporte", a Brazilian law that allows companies to destine a % of their taxes to Olympic sports. It is an incentive from Brazilian governament to sports (and something similar exist to cultural activities, like theater and cinema). Confederations, federations and clubs (any sports association) can write a project and submit it to the Ministry of Sport, that will analyse and aprove it or not. If aproved, the association can search companies that want to put money in the project. That's quite simple and efficient. However, after the Olympics, it is not clear if the governament will keep this law with the same % of taxes incentive.

Also, Olympic sports in Brazil receive a % of Federal Lottery money, and the % is set according to international results and some other criterea.

That's the equation. I don't believe in the apocalypse after the Olympics, but it will be harder, of course.

The dates for Canada (Langford) are certainly correct.

I hope it is right, and that Amsterdam is still one of the legs. If I understand it right there are 11 core teams and 1 invited team for each leg. Presumably the Dutch will be invited to their own leg, but I'm afraid their standard will have dropped since they just failed to qualify, quite a few of the most experienced players have quit recently.

London and Amsterdam are still not confirmed. We can speculate why (because they would have announced by now if it was that simple) but my educated guesses would be...

London made a god-awful hash of handling their round last year, and seriously upset several leading teams who were less than happy about having to trail over to the main stadium for a final in front of a rapidly departing crowd, while those who came to watch were also annoyed about not being able to watch the final. In short, London is probably being asked to come up with a MUCH better plan. Trouble is that the back pitches behind Twickenham are either too small for international sevens, or have no room for spectators.

As for Amsterdam, its not very promising. The initial contract was for three years - and its had those three. In addition (well informed) rumour has it World Rugby's plan is/was that the (expected) three non-WSWS Olympic qualifiers (probably Colombia, Brazil and South Africa) will each be invited to two tournaments - so no room for the Dutch.

BUT (and its a big but) where else could the sixth tournament go? It would have to be in a country that will be at the Olympics AND are in the WSWS. So... France (not sure they'd want it)? Amsterdam (but without the Dutch) - unlikely? So my best bet would be Japan - IF they win the Asian qualifier. Hard to see what other options there are and my guess is that the delay in announcing is due to World Rugby waiting to see both the outcome of the Asian qualifier, and what sort of job Japan make of the second leg. Indeed the very fact that Asia is having their women's qualifier over two legs (when their men are just having one) suggests that Japan may indeed be on trial.

And if Japan do not win the Asian qualifier? Who knows..? World Rugby will then have four Olympic teams who are not in the WSWS, so the two-tournament plan will be off the table. Could that mean one tournament each - and therefore room for the Dutch at Amsterdam after all? Your guess is as good as mine.

Talking with Brazilian RU about the bids to host both men's (failed) and women's (confirmed) series, what I understood is that even the women's series is a bit expansive for the host union (I believe Brazilian RU spended 400.000 dollars, that is expansive for them... most of it was IT in the stadium and hotels... luckly for Brazilian bid Barueri city is a business city and in February the hotels weren't busy and they made a great deal swaping publicity). As far as I remember Dutch RU was really bad financialy.

So... latest is that WR have annouced details of the WSWS - and only four tournaments. Apparently "discussions" about other rounds are on-going.

I think we can confirm from this that, at the very least:

* Amsterdam is indeed at an end - and will probably remain so until the Dutch manage to get back into the Series.
* London is at the very least severely in doubt, almost certainly due to the reasons I gave a couple of weeks ago.

However there have been NO official explanation for this from WR (or even unofficial, off-the-record. Honest!). Nothing. Zip. Nada. Difficult to believe that WR would get away with such a level of non-explanation in the men's game. Indeed they would not even try.

But then the Six Nations is only 2/3 months away and we still do not know all the venues, so you get used to it...

Yes, it's a pity. Thanks (also) to her italian roots she is my favorite international player. I checked a bit her facebook and twitter pages but she doesn't mention any injury, or any disappointment for the missed selection.
Don't know..

While Canada will take a strong side to Dubai, they have also been hampered by injuries as Ashley Steacy, Hannah Darling, Natasha Watcham-Roy, Bianca Farella, Sara Kaljuvee, Elissa Alarie and Nadia Popov will all miss the tournament. Between them, they have 49 appearances on the Sevens Series.

Welcome womenrugbyru. So are you Russian or Italian?

Steacy is certainly a class player and will be missed along with Farella. The link you pointed to seems to imply that Farella is one of the list of injured. There is still plenty of talent in the team - Magali Harvey, Jen Kish, Ghislaine Landry, Mandy Marchak, Karen Paquin - and no doubt the newcomers deserve their place too. Canada seems to have a good development scheme providing plenty of strengh in depth.

Thanks for spotting the info, Womenrugbyru : )
Of course I hope it's a light injury for Farella and for all her companions

Oh dear. Losing Ishibashi isn't good for Brazil. She is such a key player. Godoi's physicality will definitely be missed. I googled Bianca Santos and it seemed that she was on exchange in the USA with the Danville Oaks for 6 weeks during the summer http://www.goffrugbyreport.com/news/bra ... anville-7s

Have the Khamidova sisters ever played together? In the early days it was always one or the other but never both however Baizat seems to be the regular one now and Navrat seems to have disappeared. Does she still play?
