      As the World Sevens series shows, any number of different countries have a great chance of a medal, including at least one from each continent, eg Kenya, Argentina, USA, Australia, Portugal and Fiji and some countries who have little chance of a gold such as Fiji and Samoa have a great opportunity. It is a fast paced game and as the Commonwealth Games have shown fantastic from a spectator point of view. Like the Olympics, Rugby has at core certain principles such as sportsmanship, fair play and camaraderie It is also a great sport for both Men and Woman as the IRB World Cup has just shown.
