Team GB Rugby 7s kit ready to make debut at 2016 Olympics

Ah, sorry, I had to think about what you meant for a bit there. I assume you mean that the article makes no reference to the women's team, which is ranked higher than the men. You are right, it would be better if the article made that point.

See that line where she took the quick tap? That's called the 10 metre line.

See that line where she got tackled? That's the half way line.

They probably had the fans sitting in the same stand as the camera, but yes, not a lot of people there.

I agree Oliver, but what is wrong with a community vocalising approval for behaviour which we want to see more of?

One of the great things about the rugby community has been our acceptance of some things (like Mr Owen's sexuality) with virtually no fuss because they don't matter in the least, and our rejection of other things (like Bryan Habana's olympic quality diving) because they matter to us a great deal.

A community marks itself by the things it chooses to celebrate.
