Korea drop to second place in Asia Sevens rugby

Following Japan's win in the latest tournament, Korea have now dropped back to second place as they finished third in the tournament. After two tournaments that "count" the top three are Japan, Korea and Hong Kong. With HK having beaten Korea in both of the tournaments, they'll obviously be looking to exchange places with their big rivals in the overall standings. However, the gap between HK and Japan stays pretty large, whereas Korea did the double on Japan twice in Shanghai although they had little luck in Kota Kinabalu.

The big question I ask is, why don't Korea host one of the tournaments? They'd get much bigger crowds than Shanghai for sure....and what better way to showcase Olympics newest sport?
