19 player squad announced for the Barbarians match against the US next month. Presumably more names to be added when they are known. There are nine nationalities represented, and personally I'm happy to see Dutch prop Samantha Martinez Gion included. A big honour for her.


Forwards
Gill Bourke (Stade Francais & Ireland) 51 caps, Amelia Buckland-Hurry (Bristol Bears) 0, Alisha Butchers (Worcester & Wales) 25, Dalena Dennison (Warringah & Australia) 12, Fiao’o Fa’amausili (Auckland Marist & New Zealand) 57, Carmen Farmer (Glendale & USA) 11, Paula Fitzpatrick (St Mary’s & Ireland) 40, Samantha Martinez Gion (Amsterdam & Netherlands) 4, Linda Itunu (Ponsonby & New Zealand) 40, Heather Kerr (Darlington MP & England) 16, Steph Te Ohaere-Fox (Christchurch & New Zealand) 25.
Backs
Andrea Burke (Capilanos & Canada) 38, Julia Folk (Castaway Wdrs & Canada) 5, Emma Jensen (Hastings & New Zealand) 49, Jasmine Joyce (Worcester & Wales) 15, Helen Nelson (Montpellier & Scotland) 20, Elinor Snowsill (Bristol Bears & Wales) 51, Hannah Stolba (Glendale & USA) 12, Amanda Thornborough (Westshore & Canada) 28.

No Italy :(

But if I'm not wrong the italian play-off are still going on, that weekend. Maybe this is the reason why nobody Italy's player was picked up (so far)

Seeing how Italy performed in the 6N it would make sense to include one or two, so maybe that is the reason. There must still be a couple of names to come though, so who knows?

-RE streaming is working for me. Not enjoying it much though. 19-0 at half time, and I think it is only going to get harder for the Dutch in the 2nd half, they have had very little possession.

FT 54-0, if anybody wondered.

8,900 spectators according to FER, but as entrance was free who knows. Anyway a huge crowd and a great atmosphere, so a brilliant marketing stunt success for our union. They make Iberdrola and Renfe (sponsors) happy, they keep growing the fanbase so it responds when WRWC qualifiers come (a big concern for head coach) and they send a message abroad that there is a bigger market here than in established nations.

7/8 on conversions is rare for women rugby; maybe they were all tries under the posts, though, I haven't seen the game.

FER could think to host the WRWC; the Complutense stadium seems perfect at least for the pool phase.
Maybe could they plan some pools in Madrid and some in the not too far Valladolid, which should be a sort of rugby town in Spain?
Or maybe, even more unlikely, a joint-venture between FER and FFR? France was planning to bid for the WRWC together with Portugal, it would have more sense to do it with the neighbor Spain

Most were pretty straightforward, but not all. But there are pictures of Patricia Garcia practicing her kicking three hours before the start of the game - and she is a pretty amazing player. Probably the greatest advert for rugby in Spain (women or men).

Something like that was one of the early bids for 2021, but was later withdrawn.

Big news in Spanish rugby as Autoconsa El Salvador earned promotion to Liga Iberdrola after beating Les Abelles 24-20. That means one of the main clubs and the key rugby city in the country reach top level national women's rugby. I believe it was their fourth straight final and through the years they've managed to attract a lot of talent from smaller regions without access to higher standards of the game, so huge opportunity for all the country.

In the US team playing versus the Barbarians there's also Asinate Serevi, daughter of 7s legend Waisale Serevi.
This must be not a real novelty because I see that she already has two caps.

Next month, a XV tournament in Fiji with Samoa & Hong Kong.

So, with the friendlly Singapore VS Hong Kong on May 11th and the Japan's tour in Australia in July, presumably no Asian Championship this year (as last year)
