Great news for women's sevens.

From 2019-20 to 2022-23 the Women's Sevens Series will have 8 tournaments and 6 of them will be together with the men's series: Dubai, Cape Town (new), Hamilton (new), Sydney, Hong Kong (awesome) and Paris. Only Glendale and Langford will stay standalone tournaments. No more Kitakyushu as well.

I prefer this way, as women's sevens gets more exposure. But why London is not doing double tournnaments? It did in the past.

If I remember rightly London made a real mess of the joint women's/men's hosting last time they did it.

8 tournaments is right in line with what I said it should be a few years ago.

Ah yes - the Great Slow Motion Car Crash of a tournament. It was the biggest shambles it is possible to imagine - and we all knew it was going to be that before it even started.

Some real classic pieces of thoughtlessness, like playing the first day on a Friday at The Stoop. In the middle of the school exams.

Oddly enough practically no-one turned up on Friday.

Then - because it was meant to be a double header with the men's sevens over the road in Twickenham (for those who do not know it, this includes crossing a four-lane highway) - the men's tickets included the women's, BUT the women's tickets did not include the men's.

So the women's was in effect in direct competition with the men's. And the men's had all kinds of glitz and sideshows and stands and fun and fancy dress and the Big Famous Stadium - and the women's had just the rugby and The Stoop, where apparently it was hard to find anywhere even to buy a burger.

So no-one turned up.

"Oh they'll come over for the England games". Nope.

Why would they? People in the stadium were not even told that the games were on at The Stoop - and anyway why leave the atmosphere of Twickenham for the empty Stoop?

And then the final was played over at Twickenham. The players had to walk over to play the game (crossing said 4 lane highway), leaving all the hardened women's fans behind at the Stoop, entering a stadium that was emptying as the women's final was the last game of the day. To say the least they were not happy - I walked over with them. The Aussie coach was fuming about it.

It's almost as if the RFU deliberately set it up to fail so that they would never be asked again.

Regardless the RFU gave up the rights to host the following year, or World Rugby took it away from them. Suspect a bit of both.

Hi Folks

We have started a [fairly] new website dedicated to rugby sevens news and we really want to push women's rugby because there is sadly a lack of it around, including us. So we are reaching out to anyone who has something interesting to say or an event they want to promote. There's some great players and teams out there and with the next HSBC World Sevens Series including eight women's tournaments, we really want to be on top of everything that happens. So please email planetnaz@planet7s.com if you have any news... doesn't matter how small. We want world series, club, amateur ... anything with a nice story.

Thanks a bunch. Here is the website. https://www.planet7s.com
