Looking forward to this one. Just, too much sport ATM lol. Wimbledon just gone, a B&I Lions tour to SA, Tour de France and now Olympics. I expect I will have a lot of catching up to do but will try to follow the 7s at least live.

Luckilly the ECB are trying to kill domestic cricket over the next month so only two test matches to watch. The Olympics will fill that void quite nicely.

He's going to coach the team virtually which should be very interesting.

ABs need to be careful and take note of the Japan and Fiji game.
as they say in the NFL any team can beat any other team on any given Sunday

And the USA barely got past Kenya. That match went down to the final seconds.

Watched the Ireland SA match there. Good fight back at one stage but they had us well in hand for most of it. Do expect us to improve, hopefully we can beat the US. Pretty sure we can finish 3rd and still progress.

Ugh, choke job. Fairly standard for Irish competitors at the pinnacle of their sport though.

Just in case anyone set this to record - it was supposed to be on the red button (if at all) - but wasn't.
2Hr 30min into the BBC1 feed (also available on iPlayer) (341 minutes, starting at 10.25pm)


ETA: Okay, coverage is terrible; even when there's not a lot on. The above showed Fiji vs Japan and GB vs Can; before switching to the same sport the red button was showing.
As far as I've been able to find, they didn't bother showing a single match from the 2nd round of matches; just the highlights of GB vs Japan

Grrrrr

Do you have access to NBC and it's affiliates CNBC and USA Network online? That's where the 7s matches are shown here in the United States. They broadcast all of them over the air and online here..

The USA is much better at 7s than we are at 15s. The Irish whipped our butts in 15s recently, so I was happy that we beat Ireland today. South Africa will be a tougher task, I'm pretty sure they're favored to beat us. Go Eagles!

We have a completely bollock situation the BBC use to provide wall to wall coverage we could watch whatever we want and we wanted. But then the IOC sold the rights to Discovery and it ******** up the BBC who have to do their best to follow the medals. So group stage stuff like this can be waste of what they can show.

I know that, yeah, States were good to give them their dues but watching the game it was clear our lads didn't play to their ability. Hopefully we get the job done against Kenya and go through but feel like we threw it away a bit there.
