Where is New Zealand? Album

The IRB Women’s 7’s Tournament being held in Hong Kong on 23rd and 24th March has 12 teams from Canada, USA, England, Australia, China, Brazil, Spain, Russia, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Japan and Tunisia.

With Australia being Sevens World Champions,Canada winning the last 5 Tournaments it has competed in including the Dubai 7’s and Las Vegas 7’s (and being the defending Champions)China being the Asian Champions, England now arguably the top Women’s rugby nation in the world and USA the biggest women’s rugby nation it promises to be a great competition.

On 12th and 13th of May London will host the third  IRB Women's 7;s Tournament with the teams competing being all the major teams from Hong Kong ( Canada,USA,England,Australia ) along with Russia,Brazil,China,Kazakhstan,France,South Africa,Netherlands and Portugal

Where is New Zealand at these two top events as with Sevens now being such a focus for growing the game and all the Talent in Development Camps being held throughout the nation, a New Zealand team should have been selected to go to these leading international tournaments to get a gauge on where we are at especially with 2013 being such an important year with both the IRB Women’s Sevens Series being introduced and the Seven’s World Cup in Russia.
