Pacific Games day one

Cook v Nauru 22-5

Results should come here https://www.samoa2019.ws/games/rugby-7s/#results

Pool A: Fiji, Cook, New Caledonia, Nauru, Wallis&Futuna
Pool B: Samoa, Tonga, Solomon, Tuvalu, American Samoa

Little Nauru already conquered 5 gold medals in these games, just two less than Australia


That's a respectable result for Nauru. Despite only having a tiny population themselves, the Cooks are able to draw on a fairly sizable NZ-based diaspora, and are certainly the region's No. 4 team at XVs level. They famously beat Italy once, way back in 1980.

Official website is slow to update results - but they are uploading them now.

As expected, the first 3 men's results are all different:

Cook Islands 24-5 Nauru (not 22-5)
Fiji 51-0 Wallis & Futuna (not 45-0)
Tonga 37-0 Tuvalu (not 42-0)

Fiji 7s team on Twitter posted 4 results (2 men and 2 women) for Day 1 - 3 of the 4 results are different to what Oceania Rugby posted.

All results now uploaded on official site.

Only the 3 mentioned above were different (the first 3 men's matches) - all the rest agree with Oceania Rugby.

Solomon v Tuvalu 35-0

Fiji v Nauru 50-0

New Caledonia v Nauru 17-21

Pacific Games (see results above)

Gold FIJI
Silver SAMOA
Bronze TONGA

The finals were live on Olympic Channel. Nice little Pacific stadium, nice crowd and a dog invasion during the women's final.
Between league and sevens Fiji won 4 gold medals on 4 events in these Games

Saturday and sunday there's the second and last stage of the Euro Grand Prix; in Lodz, Poland.
The first placed in the final chart will be obviously crowned european champion
The best placed outside the World Series core teams will be invited to the WS Paris and London tournaments 2020.
The three best placed outside the WS core teams will be admitted to the WS qualifying tournament (Hong Kong?).
The two worst placed will be relegated in the Trophy and replaced by Lithuania and Ukraine.
I marked with a green spot the core teams, hoping to have not made mistakes.
Italy is in the middle between Hong Kong hopes and relegation fears.
Apparently host Poland is not granted from relegation.

I believe that Ireland is a core team for next yer.

Russia, Portugal, Germany are the three you'd expect, but Russia has been poor recently.

Thank you. Interesting, so Italy has good chances to go to Hong Kong.
Germany is pretty sure to go to HK and also to London and Paris; for the other two tickets to HK the fight should be between Portugal, Italy, Russia and Georgia
