    Williams and Allen both played in the Exeter 7s last weekend, where they were beaten by Portugal in the Quarters, but won all five other matches. The first game this weekend is a knock-out tie with Zimbabwe - no group game this time. Winner plays USA, to see who goes through to the quarter-finals. It's a new structure.

    There’s still a bowl competition for first round losers, no? Anyone go any sense of how well the tournament has sold?

    UK coverage appears to confined to highlights on ITV4 and S4C as far as I can see, though it seems surprising to have no live coverage. I suppose the time zones may be a factor in that.

    Yes it goes into bowl/plate shenanigans, so teams don't get only one match. It splits into Championship/Challenge/Bowl, with eight teams in each, and a game for every team to fix their position from 23/24 to the final. I think it works out as five games for each team.

    There are noises that attendance will be down on recent years in Las Vegas, notwithstanding the larger venue. Ticket prices are likely to have something to do with that if it happens.

    The cheapest ticket is US$131, which strikes me as absurd.

    This is Nike’s Argentina Sevens. It’s not a change shirt, they have a concept to explain it.

    I really like that French shirt. They wore it last week at the Exeter 7s.

    No surprise that, hopefully it'll work out as well for them as it did with Los Jaguares but until they can pick all of their players then we'll not see the best from the Pumas.
