Belarusian national team captain, Maria Sciakuro, has been arrested in Minsk because she was protesting against the result of the political elections and the violence of the police; this according to a post by swiss club Winterthur, which has a link with Belarusian rugby.
Belarus has not a XV women national team and maybe neither a 7s national team; Maria Sciakuro is the captain of the Snow Rugby team (they finished 6th at the last European Championship) and of the Beach Rugby team

Charlotte Caslick, one of the stars of the Australian 7s team, is returning from a spell in Rugby League. She lasted two matches and then broke her back. It sounds less dramatic when they say two slight fractures of a lumbar vertebra. This was only six weeks ago, but she is back doing some running and skills sessions. Brave woman.
