I presume that means they have qualified for the qualifying tournament.

I mean Argentina and Colombia, Brasil won the tournament I assume Brasil qualifies outright.

You are probably right the qualifying tournament. South America Rugby is not very clear.

Brazil is a core team this season. That means Argentina and Colombia will take part in the qualifier.

I saw no mention of the wildcard for Langford. Are they giving it to Japan?

What I don't understand is why they qualified already.

Originally there were supposed to be 3 tournaments. Was this changed to just 1? Who decided in the change of criteria?

China become Asia's second representative at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after an emphatic victory over Hong Kong in the final of the region's women's qualification tournament in Guangzhou.

There were three different tournaments but it wasn't a circuit. Valentin Martinez has been the qualifier for Hong Kong in the last couple of years.

09h52 – Guatemala 00 x 31 Chile – Challenge

10h44 – Brasil 21 x 05 Argentina – Taça Ouro

11h06 – Colômbia 05 x 05 Paraguai – Taça Ouro

11h28 – Peru 15 x 05 Guatemala – Challenge

11h50 – Chile 29 x 07 Costa Rica – Challenge

12h42 – Brasil 47 x 07 Colômbia – Taça Ouro

13h04 – Argentina 20 x 05 Paraguai – Taça Ouro

13h26 – Guatemala 12 x 20 Costa Rica – Challenge

13h48 – Peru 19 x 12 Uruguai – Challenge

15h40 – Peru 34 x 00 Chile – Challenge

16h02 – Guatemala 31 x 05 Uruguai – Challenge

16h24 – Colômbia 17 x 12 Paraguai – 3º lugar

16h46 – Brasil 19 x 10 Argentina – FINAL


This means Argentina qualified for the Canada 7s and Hong Kong 7s. Colombia to Hong Kong 7s.

Brazil 17 times champions. In 2019 there were 3 titles at stake. Bizarre.

It is restricted in Uganda/Africa because Supersport (pay channel) shows the men's games :( They never show the women's games though so we cannot watch the women play :x

Report that Russia has been banned from the Olympics https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/dec/09/russia-banned-from-tokyo-olympics-and-football-world-cup?CMP=twt_gu&utm_medium=&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1575888907

If confirmed presumably Russia would no longer take part in the Olympic Repecharge. In which case would Spain replace them? We are asking WR for comment (not expecting much vey quickly TBH!)

WR big on the "no comment at this stage". Think we first have to see how the appeal goes, and then whether Russia could put together a team of "independent" WADA-cleared players.

Also - despite what WADA have said about the World (football) Cup, FIFA are noticeably keeping their power dry.

So - beyond the Olympics - it all may depend on how much power WADA have in individual sports.

After 3 rounds it is quite clear Brazil won't survive as a core nation in the World Series... we need to grow our junior and club rugby....

On the other hand I heard WR will anounce next week the 2nd division with 2 tournaments... anybody else heard it?

I've seen just now that in this season World Rugby have cut the number of placement matches in the final day of the World Series tournaments. Good move, I think; maybe just a bit too drastic in the women's competition, where the quarterfinals losers are directly out. Considering there are a 11th place final and a 9th place final, they could have purposed a 7th final and a 5th place final, with the teams chosen on the base of the previous matches' results

Apparently Brazil did not return home after the Cape Town 7s but instead went to Hamilton where they have been preparing for the next 2 legs

:lol: Yep

Well, very unlikely now to see Brazil surviving relegation... very sad. Thalia "Mulan" Costa is doing a pretty impressive season.

Congrats China for the great results. In the Asian Sevens they did not look to be on the rise.
