National Teams/PRO Rugby/ODAs:

It was a mixed weekend for the Eagles 7s in Cape Town ultimately finishing with a Plate (or whatever it's called now) semi-final loss to Fiji.

To get to that point they beat Australia and Russia on day one along with holding it close against South Africa. They lost to Scotland on day two.

U.S.A. Rugby has announced the latest round of camp participants for the HSAA's and JAA's.

The Northeast Academy has won't the Barbados 7s. Full recap later in the day.

Take the jump to read more.

Club/College:

Week two of the Cal had nearly everything: an upset win, a comeback win in the last minute, and a slugfest in sloppy conditions.

Manny Soto of Oklahoma is the Red River DI-A Player of the Month.

World:

Despite winning gold in Rio Fiji have lost sponsorships and players haven't been paid.

England won the Cape Town 7s over hosts South Africa.

Possession is important in 7s and this piece explains why.
