...but was leaked in that Spanish document that came out in July.

That listed:
Dubai (as men's)
Australia (as men's)
USA (as men's)
Japan (21/22 April)
Canada (26/27 May)
... and that was it.

Euro 7s - give as Brive (6/7 Jun) and Kazan (30 Jun/1 Jul) - and then World Cup (20/22 Jul) suggests little or no room in the calendar for a sixth round.

At a guess WR may be delaying things in the hope they might squeeze another round in somewhere? But TBH they are always late annoucing this publically - even though the teams have obviously known since July.

Is that the later version? Suggests WR are trying to shoehorn the French round in somewhere, which I suspect they are finding it hard to do.

There is one round less, but why is the Las Vegas round not included??(USA Sevens) also most top countries will be participating in April in the Commonwealth games in April 2018 on the Gold Coast.

Australia, Canada, England, Fiji and New Zealand, possibly Kenya and South Africa maybe HK and Uganda. interesting to see who goes.

HK ceased to be a member of the Commonwealth in 1997.
The Games teams will be the five Commonwealth teams from the World Series - Australia, Canada, England, Fiji and New Zealand - plus Wales, South Africa and Kenya.

Because World Rugby isn't about expanding women's Rugby in the country with the most Women/girls playing.

Viet Nam women team is trying to collect funds to play in november's Bangkok 7s http://www.bangkoksevens.com

The team is composed also by abroad-based vietnamese players and I think it would be the first ever rugby vietnamese national team, men's or women's

The women's pool games are not being shown by SuperSport that has the rights so the WR livestream is geoblocked (for most of us in Africa). Is there a facebook live stream/any other live stream somewhere so that we can watch today's games?

A miracle happened. Spain is in Cup quarterfinals and didn't even need to wait to be one of the two best third-placed teams. Great day and it seems that three weeks of training together (which raised eyebrows among clubs) and new coach paid off. Feelings totally opposed to last season.

Almaty RFC will be as near as dammit Kazakhstan as well.

Impossible to know how close to their full team they are, but Poland will be disappointed with their day - and Belgium maybe too, but they were in a tough pool

The Russia side in the invitation event is presumably a development side, since they are also in the World Sevens series.

Doesn't England have a development side in there too? I thought I read somewhere that RFU was sending 4 teams to Dubai.

So in the aftermath of the Women's Dubai tournament, here are the standings:

1. Australia (20)
2. United States (18; who'd've thought a team that barely advanced would make it here?)
3. Russia (16)
4. Canada (14)
5. New Zealand (12)
6. France (10)
7. Spain (8)
8. England (6)
9. Ireland (4, Challenge Trophy)
10. South Africa (3)
11. Fiji (2)
12. Japan (1)

So going by the recently-revealed RWCS seeding procedure, here are the Core Team rankings and how they've changed based upon adding the Dubai points to the 2016-17 score:

1. New Zealand (116 + 12 = 128)
2. Australia (100 + 20 = 120)
3. Canada (98 + 14 = 112)
4. Russia (66 + 16 = 82) (Up 1)
5. United States (62 + 18 = 80) (Up 1)
6. France (60 + 10 = 70) (Up 1)
7. Fiji (66 + 2 = 68) (Down 3)
8. England (37 + 6 = 43)
9. Ireland (34 + 4 = 38)
10. Spain (19 + 8 = 27)

With Sydney left:
[*] The top three will be New Zealand, Australia and Canada in any order
[*] Fiji is still guaranteed a top 7 seeding, leaving England, Ireland and Spain (who needs lots of help to get there) to compete for the eighth spot

And Russia is still the best european team. This is again surprising to me. Probably England and France don't field their best XV players, but it's amazing how russians keep staying on the top of the continent despite they come not from a true rugby country. I wonder if some Premiership clubs sometime mumbled to contract one those russian players

In Russia there is a full-fledged women's rugby-7 championship. Therefore, nothing surprising. For example, Mikhaltsova and Zdrokova from Enisei. Khamidova from Krasny Yar. These are professional players in rugby-7.

I only saw this post today, so it's a bit late... A tip for in the future...

Install Tor Browser. It connects through various servers that may located in countries where there is no geo-block. Change the settings in script block to allow scripts globally (The blue as at the right-hand top - They say "dangerous", but its only if you go to illegal websites).
If it is still blocked, then click the arrows next to the onion on the left and click on "New Tor Circuit for this site". Sometimes you have to do this few times (2 or 3), but it works...

The England development (invitational) team was "The Royals". See lower down in the article.

Thank you Tuksrugby. 8-) Too late for Dubai 7s but it will certainly come in handy for the next ciruits.
