Sweden still in trouble

9 Jul 2017
The Netherlands won their match against Italy with a struggle, scoring all their points in the last 90 seconds. Sweden then lost 17 - 12 to Spain after a poor and careless game. So if the Netherlands beat Spain and Italy beat Sweden in the last round, it´s relegation time. We´ll know in a couple of hours.





GP 7s Day One

8 Jul 2017
I´ll write about the actual tournament tomorrow. What´smore important today is to workout what is required for Sweden to keep its place in the GP.





European GP 7s round 2

7 Jul 2017
Another tough weekend for the Swedish girls in a pool together with Ireland, England and Poland. Sweden it will be recalled beat Poland on the final whistle to take a final ninth place in Round 1.

2 Jul 2017
We´ve got as far as the finals with Exiles beating a very poor Karlskrona Södra 69 – 0 and Nina Giebat running in three tries when Vänersborg beat Malmö 17 – 0. No walkover for Exiles in the final as Vänersborg has a very solid team including a couple returning from Göteborg.





Day 1 Swedish 7s

Not the highest level but there are still 16 Swedish teams doing their best in Borås and it´s not every week we see that. Pre-finals favourites Södertälje and Exiles are still there in the semis, but they still have a bit to go before they take the titles.

The league season so far

26 Jun 2017
First half of an extremely thin season completed. We´re talking about 5 – 6 games a week, which is frankly pathetic. To be more specific there have been 55 games and 4 w.o. Of these, there were 15 games where the winners scored more than 60 points, i e no serious contest, and only 10 games where winners won by 10 points or less. A pattern becomes clearer when we look at the following tables:
