Jump to: navigation, search

The Women's Sevens World Cup is a women's international rugby sevens competition. It has taken place every four years and alongside the men's tournament since 2009. Initially, the 2013 tournament was planned to be the final event following IRB statement that their intention would be to end the World Cup Sevens so that the Olympic Games would be the one pinnacle in a four year cycle for Rugby Sevens. However, the IRB eventually decided to retain the men's and women's World Cups. In the future, both events will be held in the middle of the Summer Olympic cycle, with the next editions set for 2018.

Statistics[edit]

The following is the concluded scoring accreditation drawn from the IRB summary (does not show all points and tries) and the score schedules attached to the games above. This has involved some assumptions about conversions. The following tries are still unallocated - Netherlands (v China), USA (v Japan), South Africa (v Uganda), Canada (2) (v Thailand). There are also some unallocated conversions - USA, Brazil, Spain (2), Thailand. Note not all conversions are named above (i.e. it is known that certain individuals scored conversions, just not in which games). Finally, there may be a third Canadian try to allocate, and one player listed for New Zealand with 1 or 2 tries may have it removed as there appears to have been a double count.
