Interesting take. I normally hate uneven groups, but in 7s, where you have a lot of time in between anyways, that could work.

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

I like the new format, sincerely. The only problem is to change it in the middle of the season IMO.

Stellenbosch will host World Series qualifier tournament:

What a coincidence that all these qualifiers (2016 Olympics, probably 2020, this) end up hosted by Tier 1 men nations, eh?

Certainly just a coincidence :lol:
The real news is, that South Africa apparently lets their women play 7s to qualify for something again. Are they allowed to play in the Olympics?

NO! But I guess they changed their mind. It's a illogical flaw to not let them play for the Africa crown (too easy!!!11) and to prohibit to qualify for the event where they could actually qualify from... ^^

Chinese national team is already training together. If the google translation is correct, they never stopped to train together, even if in anti-epidemic modalities. In the video, yet, they don't seem to use particular precautions, apart maybe avoiding contact training

http://rugby.sport.org.cn/news/2020/0508/323077.html

Chinese women's football team starts a new model of anti-epidemic training
2020-05-08

The Chinese women's football team has been training for nearly five months since it was assembled in mid-December last year. In the event of the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics and the absence of events at home and abroad, in order to mobilize the enthusiasm of young athletes and stimulate training motivation to keep the morale of the team, in addition to normal field training and strength training, rugby-style basketball and handball competitions are personalized Targeted training ... The coaching staff worked hard in the training mode.

At the beginning of march the turkish city of Antalya hosted a 7s nine-days camp (the "Yellow mellon camp") with the national teams of Ukraine and Georgia (and maybe Norway) and the Taldıqorğan club from Kazakhstan.
Strangely no turkish teams; maybe there are no women rugby players in the region of Antalya

There is a proposal for a Spanish 7s national league with 8 rounds overlapping with XV from October to May:
https://www.yosoynoticia.es/fiatc/la-co ... gby-seven#

So far only Andalucia has 7s as the main code for women's rugby, it's almost non existing in other places, reduced to summer events.

According to this article of the always commendable rugger.info, the Euro 7s are still in the plans of Rugby Europe, even if at risk of cancellation.
Russia Rugby is mumbling to host a long october stage in Sochi for the XV national team, before the test match versus Spain, and the cancellation of the Euro 7s would release many important 7s players to the XV team

The german men national 7s team gathered for the first time after several months; according to the official communicate they hope to play in autumn some games or little tournaments against other national teams, sanitary laws permitting. They don't mention the Euro 7s in the communicate and the feeling is that this implies that they think that the event is over.
The same deduction should be applicable to the women Euro 7s too

Brazil has a new coach. The kiwi Reuben Samuel is now out and the Brazilian Rugby Union promoted Will Broderick as the new women's sevens coach. If we play 15s again, it will be him as well. http://ww2.brasilrugby.com.br/2020/08/2 ... -feminina/

Will Broderick is 27-years-old and former Brazilian men's national team player. He was born in England and played junior rugby for Sale Sharks. He came to Brazil as a development coach in the Premiership's "TRY RUGBY" project that introduced tag rugby in some Brazilian cultural/sports centers (called "SESI"). When working in the city of Sorocaba (94km from São Paulo City), he started playing with local club, Lechuza Rugby Clube (São Paulo's 2nd division) and soon moved to São Paulo to play as scrum-half for São Paulo Saracens Bandeirantes (Band Saracens, as we call them). He had 4 caps with Brazil and decided to focus on his career as a coach with the Band Saracens women's team, leading the club to their first women's national title in 2019.

Interview with Broderick (in Portuguese, he speaks fluently): http://www.portaldorugby.com.br/noticia ... -das-yaras

I think he is an interesting choice, as he has strong ties to women's club rugby in Brazil and knows a lot how is Brazil's high performance work.
