"seven iconic global destinations"

fixed
Harsh, Reg. :) It has its own charms and some decent vistas, to be sure.

The 'global icon' blurb is just there to 'zhoosh up' the announcement brought to you by HSBC...

We're only talking about rugby sevens venues here. Plenty of places on that guesstimate list have genuine shit-hole areas, but Auckland isn't at the bottom of it.

I prefer to target my Trans-Tasman barbs at Rugby Australia getting too far into bed with NZR long term. That won't end well. But a WR (World Rugby) Sevens event in NZ? No probs!

Couple of interesting results in the 1/4 finals of the world school 7's, Our boys went down to the Asian dragons & the ab's 7's girls lost to Japan. On a brighter note for us I dont think our girls have been scored against yet! The Two blues are also into the girls semi's

Do we know they exact teams?

I'd be a fan of having all 5 Super Rugby franchises then an Rugby Australia team called the Barbarians or something for the overflow from NSW/QLD and the SA, NT, TAS players.

Its just NSW, QLD & a team called "the all stars" which is made up of girls from all the other states unions.

Liam McNamara, former Aussie 7s rep, has been picked in the Irish squad for Hamilton this weekend as part of their IQ Strategy (do you have Irish heritage, come play for us).

WHO is the IDIOT coach of Aussie 7s? He has one of the biggest weapons in the sport in Trae Williams, but brings him on when the match is already won or lost, for a minute or two.

It’s weird.
The coach does a lot of things that indicate he’s got no idea.
but, his results would indicate he’s one of the best.
