I'd hazard a guess that the success of the Women's team at the Olympics would have had a positive impact on the growth of Rugby 7's1. Female contact RU (mainly 7's) & RL (latter off a small base) are having significant growth in Australia, which will greatly help RU & RL...and reduce nos. for female AF in NSW, ACT & Qld.
The schoolgirls' team has just won a world Schoolgirls' 7's competition in NZ.
Australia’s young female talent continued to shine at the weekend with the Australian Girls Schools sevens team winning the World School 7s tournament in New Zealand.www.rugby.com.au
2. Australian women have just finished 2nd (to NZ) in Cape Town In a World Series 7's competition.
(The Australian men's 7's team, surprisingly, finished 12th, to Canada).
Australia's women have taken silver in Cape Town after a brutal Cup final loss to New Zealand while the men fell to 12th place in South Africa.www.rugby.com.au
