Tankar inför midsommar

24 Jun 2016
Vissa positiva signaler under säsongens första hälft, andra mindre positiva. Diskussionen fortsätter om vilka medel som landslagen får disponera, utan att SRF visat en ökad benägenhet att tillföra medel. Ungdomsrugby upp till 14 år har florerat på flera distrikt i Sverige, inte minst Mälardalen. Svenska mästerskapet för sjumanna har fungerat bra hittills och en rad nya föreningar på nya orter har bildats. Seriesystemet fortsätter att halta och krympa och det finns farhågor för några av Sveriges äldsta föreningar. Sverige har klarat sig bra i Europa på sistone. Låt oss titta på dessa områden i tur och ordning.


Remaining league games

19 Jun 2016
The promise of a record-breaking 8 Swedish league games shrank to six when Attila as expected gave a w.o. to Karlstad and Lugi did the same instead of travelling to Kalmar. Not good, but that´s Swedish rugby at present.
Otherwise, Vänersborg took 60 points off Göteborg while Exiles C and Erikslund won easily against Berserkers and Västerås respectively.
Exiles figured in three of the six games this weekend, with a total of 60 players on the field.


Fabulous Olympic qualifier in Monaco

19 Jun 2016
Spain scored in the last seconds to beat Samoa in the final and are now on the road to Rio. The dream ended for Ireland in the Quarters but the team that just beat them 12 - 7 were the final winners Spain. All in all a great tournament where Spain, Germany and Ireland all shone for Europe.


SWEDEN - SCOTLAND 34 - 15 !!!

19 Jun 2016
Great stuff by the Swedish girls, outlasted the Scottish team to win 6 tries to 3. Best performance for years!


Final Sweden - Scotland 17.14 pm

19 Jun 2016
Sweden raised their game considerably on Day 2 with wins over Switzerland by 21 - 7 and Poland 29 - 0. Tremendous tackling against a hard-running Polish team and much slicker interpassing. They now meet Scotland who struggled to beat Germany 17 - 12 in the other semi. All to play for, Heja Sverige!
