Very impressive from the US.

GB deserve to lose for having someone called Waddleton.

No coverage here in Aus with their women playing Soccer and Baskeball at the moment.

Thought the Channel 7 app would have more options.
Cheers.
You're using 7+?

They have every sport on.
Cheers.

The titles on the homepage for the rugby are misleading.

SA and Fiji probably the 2 best teams, their semi seems like a final (assuming they both get there ofc..)

14-7 ahead looks like a pretty fair contest to me.

And many sports want our spot, we are not a core sport and be told to not come back. WR should have this in mind.

NZ aren't that good either so should make a good semi
To be honest none of the teams have been that impressive or scary so far, Fiji included. They do obviously look the most dangerous though

Maybe it should be 2/3 mins off and the player can't return. Agreed red cards ruin 7s games.

Although.. look at the score..

South Africa have bottled this. It appears that they thought they had won with the red card.
