Great report 'ilove' ^^^^^

Thanks.

Sounds like NSW 1 are the team to beat again. The semis and finals will be well worth a watch later today via the live streaming

SA seals it in the last seconds against NT. Been enjoying what I've seen of the Men's competition. Lots of talent throughout the teams though highly concentrated in NSW and QLD 1.

As for the Womens, both the NSW and QLD squads look slick from the limited amount I've seen.

WA emerge victorious over Vic. 22-7. Probably the least composed game from WA all weekend from what I've seen. So the top 4 for the Mens will be either one of NSW or QLD at 1 or 2 with WA being 3rd and Vic 4th.

Rubbish effort from the ref in the Womens final. Truly terrible. Anyway, congratulations to Qld. I should npte that I'm not suggesting the result would have been any different.

World School Sevens Tournament

The inaugural GJ Gardner World Schools Sevens pilot event will take place on Saturday December 17th at Sacred Heart College. It will feature ten teams, six in the boys division and four in the girls division.

The boys teams are Australia, NZ Condors, NZ Maori, NZ Fijians, Samoan Barbarians and the Cook Islands. The girls teams are Australia, NZ Condors, NZ Wasps, Samoan Barbarians. The tournament will take place from 10am-4:30pm and will be live on Sky Sport. We will be launching a Facebook page “World School Sevens” with results and photo’s.

The event gives an opportunity for the top U18 boys and girls to compete on an International stagehand provide New Zealand rugby with the next layer of talent. The majority of players have also played in the recent National Secondary School Sevens Finals known as the Condors last weekend.But we wanted to give an opportunity to the few who didn’t play at the Condors as well.

How many of these players were in Perth for the U17's youth tournament?

How many of these players were in Perth for the U17's youth tournament?

At a glance, I don't think any. They are a year older after all.

TBH, the U18 International Tournament looked a bit shit from what I saw.

I think Aus won because we were the only union to put together a true national squad (and a good one considering, for example, Oisin Clarken was a Super 20s starter in 2016 and only didn't make Aus schools because he doesn't go to school).
