Two relegated - Sweden and Netherlands go down

9 Jul 2017
I have assumed that only one team would be relegated, like the men, but it appears that it is two up and two down for the women. My mistake and most of my calculations irrelevant. Sweden did beat Italy and the Netherlands beat Spain, but they still have the highest combined rankings.

Netherlands had 12 + 9 = 21
Sweden had 9 + 11 = 20
Italy had 7 + 12 = 19

So its Netherlands and Sweden to go down, sorry once again to have misunderstood Rugby Europe. It has to be said, on this week´s showing, that Sweden are not a GP team at present, although they are pretty close.
