    Default World Cup 7s

    Watching live streaming the Women's opening round. Canada v. Brazil saw some really great rugby but the next two of Australia v. PNG and NZ vs. Mexico shows the desperate need to have a two tier competition per the U-20s 15s. Mexico barely touched the ball.

    Ireland surprised England in a scrappy match. USA romp over China but don't show anything but size and speed.

    Interesting incident in that game. USA have PK and ball is on the ground and about on the mark. US player stands over it then kicks it a foot or so and picks it up. She then kicks to touch, clearly not realizing that she had taken the kick. Who here would award the line-out to China on a line with where the ball was kicked? I think I would.

    Now a pet peeve: Players who carry into goal untouched and often unchased who then wait for an op to press them before grounding the ball.

    China lineout
    And that's the guidance. if you can't be bothered to chase them, then they can play at their own pace.

    Issue I’ve noticed at lineout. Ball thrown in, caught and then catcher held in air while the thrower runs to become the receiver. I thought you had to bring the player down as soon as they caught the ball. Am I wrong?
