I wish i knew the scoring system of rugby, many of these scores seem terribly one-sided. Is it common for teams to completely dominate their opponents?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Al yes it is when a minow temas comes against a giant. GO BLACK !! another win please, then onto Hong Kong and Tokyo.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

temas = team

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

a try is 5 pts, a kick after the try is worth an extra two. divide the score by 5 and you get a rough idea of tries( touchdowns) scored. Good to see the Japanese boys( literally) get a tough win.

Glad to see that we- US- are finally getting into this great sport. I played when I was in the Army with servicemen from around the globe and have been a follower ever since.

Well done Samoa, won the reverse match, the Kiwis were never really in the right mindset this weekend. Roll on Hong Kong and Tokyo.

sevens is so much more fun than 15-a-side rugby. I wish it was the dominant game.

calm down: look at the world rankings, chokers aren't usually at the top. Get a new soundtrack, you've been playing this one since September.

Rugby is cool....and to us American Rugby 7's is like 8 man football Arena football....a faster and more open game...
