Neptune, you may find all the line-ups and subs on the official website, search match by match on the left column http://www.worldrugby.org/womens-sevens ... match#blog

Final ranking of the tournament, considering number of victories and points difference, could be
1 Japan, 2 South Africa, 3 Belgium, 4 Italy, 5 Netherlands, 6 Kenya, 7 Papua N.Guinea, 8 China, 9 Hong Kong, 10 Argentina, 11 Colombia, 12 Jamaica.

Anyway China seems the team that gave more headaches to Japan

Also the best scorer is chinese: Liu scored 6 tries; kenian Omondi, japanese Tsutsumi and southafrican Jordaan and Roos 5 tries.

So basically Japan have qualified for the womens 7s series?

It was an intriguing first day. Japan was the only undefeated team. From my point of view it was good to see that Netherlands beat China 21-19. The other Europeans justified their places too by winning two matches each, Belgium beating one of the favourites, South Africa, along the way.



Belgian press announced it as an invite base on results in last years WGPS. But both could be true.


Hag, might you be having the team lists for the Belgian team? The Belgian girls are playing some impressive rugby.


They all play 15s most in the domestique ligues. A few (former) in French first division (TOP8).

Margaux Lalli Lille
Carmen De Donder Dendermonde
Nele Pien Dendermonde
Héloïse Stévins Boitsfort
Margaux Stévins Boitsfort
Sytske D’Haeseleir Lille
Cécile Blondiau Soignies
Caitlynn Cool Mechelen
Jeanne Marquegnies Frameries
Emilie Musch Boitsfort
Evelien Rosier Leuven
Geertrui Vercaemen Gent

Yes, Japan is the new core team for the 2017-18 Womens World Series. Congrats to the Japs! They were the favorites IMO.

No surprises in fact, with South Africa runners up and a good run from Italy (I hope they invest more in sevens, great potential). Highlights to Belgium, but sad that the Netherlands are a shadow of what they were in the recent past.

Have to say that the way the Belgian team has been written about - even by World Rugby - shows a shocking lack of knowledge. They are higher ranked in 7s than Italy and, as your team list shows, include several players from Lille - one of France's top 7s teams (as well as 15s). Belgium are a seriously good team and their performance did not surprise me.

Italy did. Talented players, but no real investment (or interest?) in 7s at all before this. I wonder if they now will invest in 7s?

Netherlands... oh dear! The ability of the Dutch to implode in crucial games against teams they should beat has clearly no changed.

It is also interesting that the 7th-9th ranked European teams proved stronger than the 2nd ranked African, Asian and South American teams.

Congratulations to Japan. Good fight by the South African's, and a good showing by all the ladies teams. Back to the drawing board for Kenya Women's. Although finishing 6th overall is pretty impressive considering the circumstances.

Discipline again an issue. They would have won the quarter otherwise.

Yep, too many high tackles. The coach should focus on teaching the girls to go low.

Suspect also a question of refereeing standards domestically (or regionally?). So often (too often) teams are caught out at this level doing things they get away with at home.

Japan was the favorite, congratulations! They will receive more investment with Tokyo 2020.

Now it is up to Brazil and Spain to see who will go down. I hope it does not take long until the series is expande to 16 teams. There are teams good enough for it. The problem are the costs of 16-teams tournaments.

I'm surprised by the Belgian results for the reason that there are very rarely domestic competitions for 7s. The girls are selected based on performance in 15s and on selection days. On the other hand the core of this team has been playing together for years, in 7s and 15s national selections .
