Why aren't Korea's women's rugby at the Shanghai Sevens?

China's women's rugby team has enjoyed top spot in Asia for a while, only occassionally being displaced by Kazakhstan....but now that Korea is finally getting it's act together for women's rugby, is that cosy status in jeopardy? The fact that Korea's women's rugby team didn't get invited to the Shanghai Sevens might indicate that China is nervous, and doesn't want to give its new rivals any opportunity to enhance their skills....shame!! Surely a hard fought women's rugby competition in front of a big crowd at the 16,000 seater Yuanshen Stadium is THE way to get rugby sevens to grow in China? And there is nothing the Chinese like better than confirming supremacy over their smaller neighbours...ah well, a chance for both countries' rugby goes begging....
