Upp till bevis för damerna!

22 Jun 2018
Sverige hade en utmärkt säsong 2016 då de utklassade motståndet på Trophy-nivån i Europa 7-manna. De flyttades således upp till GP-nivån 2017 men räckte inte riktigt till på den nivån och flyttades tillbaka till Trophy-nivån tillsammans med Nederländerna. Samtidigt flyttades Skottland och Tyskland upp till GP-nivån.





Södertälje tar grepp om Div. 1

17 Jun 2018
Hammarby fick spela sin hemmamatch mot Södertälje i Täby till följd av strul på Skarpnäck. Matchen uppfattades som en fingervisning om vem som skulle aspirera på en eventuell uppflyttning nästa år till Allsvenskan. Svaret blev entydigt Södertälje, som utklassade Hammarby med 45 - 11. Samtidigt vann Kalmar Södra lika lätt, 40 - 10, mot Erikslund, även här i Täby. Det börjar redan nu luta åt Enköping mot Södertälje för en plats i Allsvenskan 2019. Men osvuret är bäst.





Big win for Pingvin!

16 Jun 2018
Pingvin´s win last week against Exiles suggested that they were a much improved side with several imports appearing. This was confirmed in Enköping today when they outclassed the home team 75 - 10. In the other Allsvenska game Göteborg pulled away in the last 20" to beat Troján 36 - 21. Troján fielded Rikard Nunstedt who obviously needs playing time with Vänersborg taking time out.
Stockholm RF are furious with Stockholm Stad who are failing to meet their commitments when it comes to Skarpnäck. I hear both the Div. 2 Mälardalen matches are postponed this weekend for reasons that are not exactly clear. A poor show when four teams are supposed to play their home games here.





Some interesting games this weekend

15 Jun 2018
The Ladies are finished for this half of the season with 10 matches played, 2 w.o. and five results where the winners scored 97 points or more. Only Exiles and Vänersborg seem to be of any quality. The five male leagues all have games, however.





Twos make it four in row

10 Jun 2018
Uppsala made it a close match in the first half at Skarpnäck, holding the Twos to 21 – 19. But thereafter the Twos began to dominate, scoring five more tries and finally winning 50 – 26. Uppsala had some strong running backs who found space to run in four tries, but they couldn´t match some of the bullocking runs of the Exiles pack. And, finally, Exiles backs began to find holes in a resolute Uppsala defense.





Pingvin too good for Exiles

9 Jun 2018
Exiles were well beaten 24 - 13 by a Pingvin team strengthened with four new foreign players. Exiles thought they had travelled with a good enough team to beat Pingvin, but it was not to be. They conceded two tries when they played with 14 men after a yellow card and never really looked like catching up.





Veckoslutets rugby

8 Jun 2018
Teoretiskt har vi många matcher även denna helg men huruvida alla matcher spelas är en annan fråga. Att det blev tre w.o. ur ett fullständigt serieprogram för ett par veckor sedan är illavarslande. Hur som helst, det bör bli flera roliga matcher i helgen.





Halvbra resa till Italien

3 Jun 2018
Det svenska 7-mannalaget reste i helgen tll en turnering i Italien. Det var tänkt att flera som ingick i truppen men som inte platsade i A-uppsättningen skulle visa vad de kunde. Av tio lag var 3-4 hyfsade, dock med begränsade idéer om hut man spelar 7-manna. Sverige kom på sjunde plats av tio deltagande genom att slå Roviga 17 - 12 i en match som låg långt under GP-nivån.. Jag tvivlar på att några nya namn kunde armboga sig fram till de 12 bästa i Sverige. Den italienska kommentatorn sade vid ett par tillfällen att svenskarna visste hur man spelar 7-manna men att de var alldeles för långsamma. Tyvärr kan jag hålla med om det.





Plus and minus this weekend

28 May 2018
I wrote positively on Friday that 13 league games were due to be played this weekend, the most for some time. I also called on the clubs to phone in their results as soon as possible to keep rugby Sweden informed. Here was the outcome at 10.30 p.m. on Sunday:





Exiles still undefeated this season

27 May 2018
A good win for the Twos, 46 - 14, against a much improved Berserkers to make it three out of three in Div 2 Mälardalen.
