Only one round robin match to start the tournament.

 

:SAM with a big win over :NZL. This puts :NZL in a tough spot as they now much defeat :AUS if they want to get out of the group stage.

 

The combined :GBR team was easily defeated by :FRA. It may take some time for them to become cohesive.

Well, the squad is pretty much team Scotland (8) with a bunch of Englishmen (4) and a token Welshman, the lack of cohesion is therefore a bit odd. None of the three program was going well before the merger anyhow, so seeing GB struggle now is quite logical though the impression left this morning is concerning.

But the real information from this first day is that the World Series will go from 16 to 12 teams next year !

 

I guess they want tot reduce the tournaments' length. But the Challenger Series will need to be really established, not like what we've seen so far, or 7s will unfortunately become another Commonwealth/rugby inbred sport.

This is a very poor move and will create a further gap between the top nations and the rest.

 

Even if we assume the Challenger Series will have a proper schedule (say 6 stops), funding for the national teams will be a big issue. Some of the core teams are already struggling and it will be more so because nobody wants to heavily fund a "division II" team.

For example, if we went by last season's results, Canada and Japan (along with no promotion for Uruguay) would have been relegated. I can tell you now the men's team funding would have been cut by more than it already has. Japan might still get funding due to being a favourite for an Olympic quota, but probably a lot less.

 

I fear for what would happen to nations like Kenya or Samoa who have had bad seasons in the past. It could kill their program if they are not in the top level.
