GRR: National Teams

Well we almost predicted it.

Goofing around with the Men’s World Series Standings we speculated that we might see all of the top teams tied … or at least most within a point of each other.

That second scenario is basically happening.

In a way it was a deeply head-shaking weekend for the USA Women's 7s team.

The results, in the end, did the job. They beat Canada, Great Britain (twice), and Ireland on their way to 3rd in the Sydney 7s. But they also slipped against Fiji—a talented Fiji to be sure—and found success against France fleeting.

The Eagle women are back in the semifinals after two intense and nailbiting clashes ith Great Britain.

Team GB had achieved their best finish in the World Series season last time out, taking 5th, but it had been a weird, up-and-down performance. Great Britain was much more consistent this time around and against the USA were tenacious on defense and opportunistic.

The USA Men's 7s team faltered in pool play in Sydney, losing in rather extravagant fashion to Samoa and Ireland.

The team that had surprise so many in recent weeks seemed to hit a bit of a wall against both of those sides. Just a shade slower to the ball, and not as dominant in the tackle, they found themselves scrambling to get going.

It was tough going for the USA in Day One of the Sydney 7s.

The Eagle women finished 1-1 with a thin win over Canada and a thin loss to Fiji—a dangerous team we've been warning you about.

Against Canada the USA was burned early as they fell off, or were bumped off, tackles.
