Just four teams will take part to the Ukrainian 7s championship: a Odessa select, a Kiev select, Olymp Kharkov and Lionesses Lviv.
When I saw the title of the article I thought it was XV but it's just 7s: four sevens teams in a nation with a population almost as big as the Spanish one means that women rugby is almost at level zero over there. Maybe the sanitary situation influenced this year's participation

US Women have been back in camp since the end of last month, did a two week fitness and health screening with COVID-19 tests administered. Unlike say New Zealand or Australia there is no club footy to release players to right now.

Yes. Sudamerica Rugby was planning a 3-tournaments series, but the pandemics made it impossible. The idea now is to have just one tournament, in Uruguay (using the Valentin Martinez for it).
