Seville 7s – January 28-30 2022

Men Finish in 14th Place and Gain 2 Series Points; Women Finish in 7th Place and Gain 8 Series Points: FULL MATCH VIDEOS

The men came away with 2 points at the Seville tournament only coming out ahead of Jamaica who were an invitational side. Wales, Japan and Germany all came out ahead of Canada, and Germany are also an invitational side. Canada’s permanent spot on the series may be in jeopardy, the one saving grace this year, due to COVID, is relegation and promotion may be off the table. Canada currently sit in 13th spot, narrowly ahead of Wales and Japan.

The women did better, earning 8 points, ahead of Spain and Brazil. Canada occupy 8th spot with only 10 teams competing in all series tournaments so far this year.


The women lost to France 29-0 in the 5th place semi-final. They rebounded to beat Spain in the 7th place playoff 21-5. Australia defeated Ireland in the final, 17-12.

*Canada Men Lose to Scotland; Women Lose to England and Defeat Portugal: FULL MATCH VIDEOS*


The women lost to England where they were just over matched in speed and power. They ran up the score on Portugal who are in the tournament as a replacement team when NZ and Fiji dropped out due to COVID. The return of Elissa Alarie was a bonus for Canada as she was one of the better players for Canada on Day 1.

Canada face USA at 3:57am PT.

It’s likely Canada will finish the best 3rd place team and face the top of Pool B in the quarter-finals. That will be the winner of Russia v Ireland, likely Russia.

The men’s team lost to Scotland in their only Day 1 match. They’ll be disappointed with their effort as Scotland just beat them with intensity, Canada dropping off a few tackles and getting beaten at the breakdown and at the scrum. Josiah Morra was injured in the previous tournament and wasn’t available for Seville.

Canada will face Kenya at 23:45 PT. They’ll struggle to make the quarter-finals as they have to finish top 2 in their pool and face Australia as well on Day 2.
