Ghana Rugby Women’s Eagles Conclude Preparations For Tunisia https://buff.ly/33chzlm

4:00 PM – Oct 7, 2019

Last weekend was the biggest ever African Championship ever, held in Monastir, Tunisia. Spots at next year’s Olympics and the a chance to be on the next World Sevens Series were up for grabs.

South Africa won the tournament and the African Olympic qualifier in Tunisia. But as the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) have stated that they will not allow South Africa to compete. Kenya will instead take their place and have thus qualified for Tokyo 2020.

The SASCOC decision may come as a shock to some but this committee has repeatedly taken the stance that unless their teams can win, they don’t want them participating. Seems to be a harsh standard as it’s commonly understood that teams need exposure to the next level to get there. Rarely do teams get there without any experience…

3rd/4th: Madagascar 5-0 Tunisia

Final: Kenya 14-15 South Africa

The Women’s Premier League finals weekend is November 1-3 at Infinity Park in Glendale, CO. In the trophy bracket, Life West and Glendale will represent the West Conference. Atlanta returns to the trophy bracket after four long years and will represent the East.

St. Francis Xavier University played Acadia University, who is said to be their biggest rival in their league.
