That all depends on how much the WRU care about the conditioning for their women's team.

Parabéns to Sporting, who for the second straight year dominated again Spanish champions. 12-16 against CRAT in A Coruña.

Even though I know they prepare well this match without other distractions, it concerns me a lot that a team from a country without local fifteens nor test rugby causes so much problem to top clubs from a theoretically emerging competition like Liga Iberdrola... This and U18 results are without doubts the worst news coming from Spain in recent times.

For Sporting: Thamara Rangel, Larissa Lima (that was in NZ recently playing for Counties Manukau) and Suellen Oliveira. Rangel and Lima scored both tries!

For CRAT: Yanka Almeida.

Czechia 17-5 Sweden (HT 5-5)
Great win for Czechia who dominated the all game except the 2 first minutes (swedish try) and 10 minutes in the second half (65-75).
And a second consecutive REIC women trophy for them.

Leonas probably learnt today more than in REWC, but still a disappointing defeat against Occitanie 16-12. No scrum, no win.

At halftime Switzerland 10 - 0 Finland

Full time: Switzerland 32 - 0 Finland

Finland actually defended quite strongly as CH were overwhelmingly dominant in possession and territory, the score could have been rather higher

Great comeback by Japan to beat Scotland 20-24

And once again I just wonder myself in public why the hell Scotland is gifted a spot in European RWC qualifiers. What have they done to prove they are any better than the Netherlands?

That's easy. Scotland have more votes of WR Council.

Scotland gave up possession so easily, so often - and allowed Japan to make so much ground in each phase when they had possession - that you fear for them in the 6N.

I'm pretty sure they are better than the Netherlands, but as you say they haven't proved it. I saw them play each other in Amsterdam 8 years ago, and the Netherlands were well beaten even though the Scottish team was quite experimental. I doubt much has changed.

I'm no fool, of course they are probably better. As we are. It should be proven on field. Why 'Rugby Europe minus W6N' teams can have only one entrant at RWC?

No, oddly enough. Not a test, but even if it was the Ferns were short of Netherlands 141-3 win over Denmark in 2004.

If the game is considered as a part of WRWCQ, it's a record for it : the precedent was on 3/5/2012, Netherlands 105-0 Finland.
For WRWC, the record is on 2/5/1998, New Zealand 134-6 Germany.
And not a test too, on 4/12/2004, Uganda 183-0 Rwanda.
Finally, out of the nations, I know in 2007 a 237-0 between a team fom Parramatta & one from Wollondilly in Australia.

The Barbarians with their nationality. They defeated Wales 29-15, five tries to three. The BaaBaas scored all the points in the first half, Wales all the points in the second half. Unfortunately the stadium was almost empty. It has to be said that three hours between the start of the women's game and the start of the men's one appear too much and that the kick off time, 11.45 local, seems uncomfortable. Maybe the aim of the organizers was to keep the spectators in the Millennium restaurants during the pause
