    Not sure about including Rugby 7's in that argument. I think, if you asked the players, they might easily tell you that the Olympics IS the pinnacle of their sport. And that's all that counts, I reckon.

    The 7's WC has only been around a short time, so is that established as the pinnacle? The women's team competed in their first ever WC knowing that the Olympics was still a possibility for some of them.

    Yep - add that one.
    Ahh ok, I see where you're coming from now, and yeah, I'd agree based on that.
