    So Russia pull out of the bidding to host the 2019 RWC which they were very unlikely to win hosting rights bidding to, in favor of bidding for the 2013 Sevens tournament. It's good to see that they have government backing. While it would be a stretch to say that Russia are a coming power in world rugby, they're certainly moving in the right direction with qualification for 2011 looking very possible, a semi pro league already in situ at home and now declaring serious interest in hosting the Sevens event in 2013 (following on from a bid for the 2009 event).
