“Brazil won promotion to the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series 2020 after beating Scotland in the annual World Series qualifier in Hong Kong. After two days of thrilling action, head coach Reuben Samuel’s side finished up as 28-19 winners over a strong Scottish outfit, scoring 120 points in six games at the 12-team tournament. Brazil will now feature as one of the 12 core teams on the World Series, a place they last held back in the 2016-17 season, and enjoy the new competition format as the World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series competition increases from six to eight tournaments.” – World Rugby New Zealander Reuben Samuel and Italian Aristide Guerriero team up in South America – empowering their women’s 7s squad to compete with the best sides in the world.
