The french Top16 semifinals, this saturday, will be
Montpellier v Bayonne
Stade Toulousain v Blagnac

All the three cities (Blagnac is basically a quarter of Toulouse) are on the south of the nation (the three biggest red rounds here in the map)

That's quite surprising not to see a Northern team there. That was close for Bobigny who lost by 2 to Blagnac.
Women's Elite rugby is more spread across the country than men. 7 of the 16 élite 1 clubs are from northern part of France.

Tri-Nations U18, last of three rounds

Switzerland-France 5-22
France-Italy 0-39
Switzerland-Italy 0-39

Italy won the series in front of France and Switzerland.
By the way, "Italy" was a selection of Piedmont region while "France" was a selection of the departments of Savoie and Haute Savoie (departments are sub-parts of a region). Apparently Switzerland fielded instead a proper whole national team.
The competition was created and propelled by swiss federation, as far as I know

The both first legs were on march 10th in Torino (Piemonte) and on april 21st in Chambéry (Savoie).
With twice the same results : 1 Piemonte (Italy), 2 Savoie* (France), 3 Switzerland

In Torino and Chambéry, the both swiss games are X and only Piemonte Vs Savoie was XV.
In Genêve yesterday, at home but for the 1st time, Switzerland U18 played two XV games (2 x 20').


* Savoie as the historic region (Savoie & Haute-Savoie departments)

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)


Strangely, nothing has been written about the Hong Kong/Samoa/Fiji tri-series after that one Tweet on 28th April.

To what extent can these be considered representative of Guernsey and Jersey? I know the men's Siam Cup is played between 2 club sides (who can field foreign players).

I found the following results: Before this, there was no "Siam Cup" as such, but the teams played other 2 or 3 times during a league season (for the first few years, Jersey was "Jersey United Banks".

15/05/2011 Jersey 20-20 Guernsey
05/05/2012 Guernsey 10-5 Jersey
04/05/2013 Jersey 0-17 Guernsey
03/05/2014 Guernsey 27-10 Jersey
02/05/2015 Jersey 7-17 Guernsey
07/05/2016 Guernsey 41-12 Jersey
06/05/2017 Jersey 0-43 Guernsey
05/05/2018 Guernsey 40-0 Jersey
11/05/2019 Jersey 5-22 Guernsey

Actually the (men's) teams are now much more restricted about how many non-island players they can field - so (professional) Jersey (men) in particular cannot field their full-strength team for this game.

Its probably less an issue for the amatuer women's teams/

True - Guernsey (men) are not affected by this rule - but I'm not sure how many non-Guernsey players they have anyway.

For the women, in that case, it's probably closer to a true international match (notwithstanding their affiliation to the RFU, politically they are separate).

So effectively acting as an eliminator for Asian WRWC qualifier, at a guess? Winners would presumably be up against Hong Kong, Japan and Kazakhstan.

Not sure how strong the Hong Kong team will be as I hear that their leading players are preparing for a sevens in the Algarve.

With Fiji also being advertised as a "Fijian XV" its unlikely that these games will have test status.

"Fijiana XVs" is how they are listed on the Fiji Rugby Union site - this is the normal moniker for their national women's XVs team.

Awesome campaign, great stories, but I ask: apart from the inspirational stories, what is the use of the website? Are they going to show womens rugby news from around the world weekly?

A very good question. It seems to be more of an advertising campaign, nothing wrong with that of course. I’m not sure what else it’s suppose to do though. I will say, Brett Gosper saying he believed women can one day rival the men commercially at the launch of this campaign was, let’s just say, optimistic at best.

In a 2x30' match the national team of Mozambique defeated the Cheetahs, a club from Swaziland, 69-0.
Thirteen tries and two conversions
Nice to see them playing already XV rugby.
