The All Blacks beat the Springboks by a record 57-0 over the weekend! All of a sudden I don't feel so bad about the Wallabies losses.

It's at the point where it's not even interesting to watch. But hey the Springbok fan tantrums on Facebook were pretty good.

If anyone cares the Rugby League World Cup is currently underway. The NYT has a pretty good article describing the event:

The Other (and Less Popular) Rugby World Cup Gets Underway

Also of note, Canada and the US will be hosting the 2025 World Cup.

World Rugby Sevens Series Update

Sevens is back!!! This weekend the 2017/18 series got underway in Dubai.



1st Place: South Africa
2nd Place: New Zealand
3rd Place: England


The defending champion Blitzboks picked up where they left off last season with another dominating win.



How did Canada do?

-Loss vs Kenya 29-15
-Win vs Uganda 22-17
-Loss vs South Africa 28-0
-Win vs USA 10-5

It was an inconsistent tournament for the Canadians. They picked up solid wins over Uganda and the US however lost a couple winnable games to Kenya and France.

World Rugby Sevens Series Update

Round 2: It's the South Africa Sevens in beautiful Cape Town.



1st Place: New Zealand
2nd Place: Argentina
3rd Place: South Africa


The All Blacks won their first series in over a year. They are the early 2018 favourites.



How did Canada do?

-Loss vs Samoa 19-17
-Win vs Fiji 22-14
-Win vs Wales 31-14
-Win vs France 35-7
-Loss vs Argentina 14-12
-Loss vs South Africa 19-17

Overall: 4th Place

It was a great tournament for the Canadians who showed they could compete with the world's best. The highlights were a pool win against Fiji and a dominating quarter final win against France. Even their losses were close with 2 points being the margin in all of them.

Up Next: The series takes a break until the Sydney Sevens from January 26-28th. Note the Australia and New Zealand events have switched places this year.
