By RugbyPass

This week we’re showcasing the best of the Condor 7s, the New Zealand secondary schools national Sevens competition.

Next up, young rising star Roderick Solo of Scots College, Wellington. Solo was a weapon for Scots College – with the ability to make something out of nothing and probably one of the best right-foot steps we have seen. Solo was almost impossible to contain and scored some memorable tries which will be remembered by those in attendance for years to come – one in which he turned a Tauranga Boys College defender inside-out and scampered 50m down the sideline.

Solo’s breakthrough performances earnt selection in the Condors team of the tournament and helped Scots College reach the final where they fell to Hamilton Boys.

Jean de Villiers' three word response to 'best in the world' debate

This ‘raging’ debate is only happenning in media circles and has never been a topic in Ireland (although SA media are interested). It makes the media companies money I guess. SA are RWC champions and #1 ranked team although Ireland are back within a point there. The facts point to SA. For a lot of 2021 France beat ALL their rivals and Ireland similar in 2022-2023. It is not wrong to say that on such form either can be deemed to be the current best team if they have beaten all their rivals and ranked #1. The ‘have to have won a world cup’ stipulation is nonsense. The world cup draw and scheduling has been tailored to the traditional big teams since the start. The scheduling also which sees the big teams sheltered from playing a hard pool match the week before has also been a constant. It is extraordinary that for example France have made so many finals. Ireland who were realistically only contenders in 2023 were in a Pool with two other top 5 teams and had to play one of them 7 days before a quarter final against France or New Zealand. Always going to be a coin toss. Scotland’s situation was worse. New Zealand had great chances in 1995, 1999, 2007 but they could not win a tight RWC match. The first tight match they ever won was versus France in the 2011 final, literally they lost every other tight match before that. Some of those NZ teams around that era were #1 surely?
