In the Asian Tournament Las Leonas7sframed in Group A, could not overcome New Zealand (38-7), Canada (28-7) and Ireland (25-7) in the group stage and fought in the semifinals for 9th place against Sud�frica (26-14), against which they could not achieve their first victory either. In the final to avoid the last position those of María Ribera did manage to shine with a victory 19-24 before Brasil with four essays posed by Juana Stella, María Calvo, Eva Aguirre and Marta Cantabrana.

For your part The Lions7sthey also failed in Group B in the preliminary phase with South Africa (31-7) nor France (17-12), despite the fact that they had the victory or at least the tie in their hands in the last play. In the match that closed the group stage against Samoa (5-40) Paco Hernández’s team brought out their best version to secure their first victory in the Asian tournament, but the good performance of their rivals in the rest of the groups kept them away from the gold quarterfinals.

As luck would have it, in the semi-finals for 9th place, Paco Hernández’s team met again precisely against what had been their last rival, Samoa, whom they once again beat. 19-12. Already in the final for the 9th place for the double Olympic champions of Fiji They knew how to come back in the second half to win a hard-fought match 21-12.

Both Los Leones7s and Las Leonas7s will therefore fight in Madrid for permanence, along with the three remaining teams that have finished from 9th to 12th place overall, as well as with the four best in the promotion Challenger, which will be finalized in the last round that will be held in mid-May
