Schedule announced for 2nd Madrid 7s

Russia impressed everyonewith their win in the first Madrid 7s. After a week of analysis and preparation, can anyone prevent them from doing the double when play resumes on Saturday?

Russia have been given a similar schedule to the USA last weekend in that they do not meet their major rivals (USA and France) until the last two rounds on Sunday. The key game on day 1 is therefore France vs USA in Round 2 – whoever loses this will have some catching up to do.

On the other hand, Spain have the worst of the draw, coming up against the three top teams in their opening three games – a run of games that Kenya faced last week, and from which they did not recover.

Streaming arrangements will be confirmed tomorrow.
