GRR: Dubai 7s
The North American Lions and the North American Barbarians are getting set to play in the U19 International bracket in the Dubai 7s starting Thursday.
The North American Barbarians are the second of two North American select sides to play in the Dubai 7s Boys Premier tournament.
The USA Men's 7s Team had to defeat New Zealand if it wanted a shot at the Dubai 7s Cup Quarterfinals. The Eagles then needed some help from France - or Portugal, really - to beat Les Bleus in the standings. The USA got the results it wanted: a 14-12 injury-time win over New Zealand, and two more points than France in the point differential column for the Cup berth.
Pools and fixtures have been released for the Dubai 7s, the first leg of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series (WSS) 2015-16. Rio Olympic Games host Brazil joins the 11 core teams for the two-day competition, held Thursday-Friday, Dec. 3-4.
