I got the info that the Marcoussis tournaments AREN'T part of the WR Sevens Series, as not all core teams will be involved, which means WR's release has a mistake :?

Those dates are a bit conflicting with my hypothesis about the RWC qualifiers schedule: I thought that the second part of February was the most likely time to play the last two games of the Euro pre-qualifiers (Spain v Russia, Spain v Netherlands), but if the Spanish, Russian and maybe Netherlander 7s national teams are playing in those two weekends I suppose that the RWC XV games will be fixed or before or (more probably) later. In the first two weekends of March, I'd say

Statement from World Rugby re. Russia's involvement in the Olympic repecharge (don't get excited....):

"World Rugby notes the decision announced by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) regarding the Russian Anti-Doping Agency’s non-compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code. While awaiting the opportunity to review the full written judgement and consider its implications in detail, it would be inappropriate at this time to comment on any impact on World Rugby matters."

So the best you can say is that they have not said Russia will definitely take part. Spain may wish to keep their training boots on.

Sorry, John, does the statement specifically mention Olympic 7s? Because if it doesn't it may be related to 2027 and 2031 RWC bids, since hosts must be selected before Russia's ban expires.

As it's been lately decide I can't see how Russian national teams can be barred from taking part in the Olympics.

Sorry - should have said - it was in reply to my question specifically about the Tokyo Olympics.
