Monaco Rugby Sevens Repechage Schedule – Tokyo Olympics
World Rugby has released the Monaco Rugby Sevens Repechage schedule which will determine the final team places for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The Governing body also confirmed that fans will be able to attend the event from 18-20 June.
World Rugby Chief Executive Alan Gilpin said: “The Monaco repechage is also symbolic in its own way – a reflection and celebration of sevens international re-emergence from the unprecedented challenges that society and sportspeople have faced. I know that these players are excited to be representing their nations with the opportunity of qualification for the pinnacle of sevens – the Olympic Games.”
On June 17th, World Rugby confirmed that the Uganda men’s team had to be withdrawn from the World Rugby Sevens Repechage competition in Monaco following a number of positive COVID-19 results determined during scheduled arrival testing.
This means that their fixtures will be treated as byes* and the opposition awarded a win in Pool B – Chile, France, Hong Kong and Jamaica.
The Jamaica women’s team also withdrew late from the tournament due to travel complications.
Their Pool B women’s matches against Kazakhstan, Papua New Guinea and Tunisia will be treated as byes with no points awarded.
Monaco Rugby Sevens Repechage Schedule
The match schedule has been developed with player welfare at heart said World Rugby “No team will have more than three games in each day, resulting in the two games being organised on Friday evening, accommodating the reduction to 10 teams in the men’s competition.
Due to late kick-off times, the two Friday games will be played behind closed doors. You can read more about the pools for the Monaco Rugby Sevens Repechage.
