France claim victory

An exciting day of 7s rugby has to come an end and France claimed victory at Odense 7s. Belgium won the Shield after a close encounter against Romania – a fantastic game that went right to the wire. Italy won the bowl by beating Netherlands which means that Netherlands are relegated to Division A. Georgia took the Plate title with a win over England – an exciting match with a wealth of big hits and fantastic tries.

France put in a superb display against Portugal to win the Cup and claim the Odense 7s title. England took the overall title after wins in Lyon and Moscow. Congrats to England and winners France – it has been a fantastic tournament, and the weekend has featured heaps of exciting games that have thrilled the crowd in Odense.

Thanks to everyone who came to Odense to experience some great rugby 7s, and we hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did!

Exciting day at Odense 7s

In Group A, Denmark fought hard against their more illustrious opponents, but ended up losing all three games. Germany end up in 3rd place after pushing England and Scotland close. The group decider between England and Scotland turned out to be a thriller, as Ollie Phillips was sent off for a tip tackle in the first minute – Scotland claimed victory with a 26-14 win. Germany play Lithuania in the first game tomorrow morning (kick-off at 09.30 CET).

In Group B, France convincingly beat all opposition and won the final game against Wales by 33-12. Wales take 2nd place while Italy cruised to a win against Lithuania to claim 3rd place and a game against hosts Denmark on Sunday. Italy pushed Wales close, but the Welsh players held on for a 19-17 win. Lithuania have played well, but lacked the final touch to claim a win – we predict there is more to come from Lithuania tomorrow.  

In Group C, Russia proved far too strong for Georgia, Ukraine and Belgium while Georgia beat Ukraine and Belgium to claim 2nd place – Georgia are up against tough opposition tomorrow and kick off against Portugal. Belgium have put in an inspired performance, but could not avoid losing all three games as Ukraine ended up in 3rd place.

In Group D, Portugal came out on top with a win over Spain in their final game. Portugal nearly lost to Romania in their first game, but came back to claim victory late on. Spain came 2nd with wins over Netherlands and Romania. The game between Netherlands and Romania was a real thriller and the lead changed several times, until Netherlands broke the deadlock in the final minute of the game.

Less than two hours to go before Spain and Netherlands go head to head in Odense

 Rugby fans in Denmark, as well as all over Europe, are in for a treat as Europe´s elite go head to head at Odense 7s. The first two teams on display are Spain and Netherlands, and the Spanish team features a host of well-known players from the IRB Sevens Series – should be really exciting to follow Spain as they fight it out in a group also containing Portugal and Romania.

The hosts, Denmark, play Scotland in their first game and the Scots - along with Spain and France - have brought a full strength team to Odense, and 7s fans across Europe will be able to enjoy the 7s talents of Andrew Turnbull, Colin Gregor, James Fleming, Michael Fedo and Scott Riddell. England will be favourites to top that group and Ben Ryan has included some of the biggest stars on the 7s circuit in his selection for Odense 7s.

Thus, James Rodwell, Chris Brightwell, John Brake, Ollie Phillips, Tom Powell and the speedster Dan Norton – the fastest man in 7s – are amongst the players in Odense. Are England heading for the win in Odense? 
Only time will tell! But stay tuned for more updates during an exciting day of 7s rugby.
