After seven triumphant years for Susies Saloon the Dutch team this year had to accept being second best in the Scandinavian Open Sevens. Hong Kong Dragons left no chance for Susies to win their 8th title. In the opening of the game the Dragons had their first try and by two more tries and a penalty kick the final score was 20-0 for the Dragons. During the tournament both teams proved to be the right finalists and a very high level a rugby was shown in the final.

The Women Cup was won by the favourites Valkyries of Susies Saloon who did not have a single point against during the whole tournament. They won the final 29-0 against Frederiksberg.

The Old boys tournament was won by Swedish South Pacific Masters in a final against last year's winner Danish Hamlet. South Pacific Masters-Hamlet 27-0.

In the final for the Plate the hosts RK Speed had a chance for a medal but English Old Reds were too strong and did not leave an opening for Speed to lead the game. Old Reds - Speed 39-17. 

Danes did win one of the competitions as Frederiksberg RK II won the bowl final versus Grenå 61-5.

The organizers have now made the seeding and the prelimenary pool distribution for the Scandinavian Sevens on August 11-12. Experience shows, however, that it is difficult to know what may happen - last year the London bombings caused several teams to be unable to get to Copenhagen. On the other hand we also know that sometimes lazy people go for late entries.

This year's tournament was hit by both rain and the terrorist action in London. Several seeded teams could not fly out of England and did not arrive. This meant that only 21 teams played in the men's pools on Saturday, these played in 6 groups to qualify for the Sunday finals. 10 old boys teams in two pools and 5 women teams were present.

The past year's winners Susies Saloon, Netherlands, played Northern Raiders, England, in the final. The match was very close. Northern Raiders lead by 12-0 before Susies started a big pressure on the Raiders try line. Susies scored two tries and lead by 14-12. Close to the end of the game Susies got a final try and won the Scandinavian Sevens for the sixth time.

The plate final was  played between Speed, Denmark, and Århus, Denmark. Speed took the Plate by winning 24-.21.

The bowl final was won by Leuven, Belgium, over the Old Reds II, England.

Saturday the old boys and women finals were played. Speed, Denmark, won the women tournament by beating Bergen,  Norway, in the final.

In the old boys final Speed, Denmark, and Exiles, Denmark, played with Exiles as the cup winners.

Susies Saloon once again took the Scandinavian Open Sevens Cup. The tournament had included several strong teams from England and the Fijian Viti Outlaws. None of them were able to threaten Susies win. Only in the two last games tries were scored against Susies. The final was played against Otters from England. One Danish team, CSR, had qualified for the cup but lost the quarter final to Otters.

The plate tournament was won by the french side (who should probably not have had their name accepted) RC Quand Ma Femme a Chiasse. They beat Frederiksberg RK in the final. The hosts from Speed lost the semi final to the french.  The bowl final was played between Erritsø and Hundested. Erritsø won 70-12.

The women's cup was won by the English team Pink Babas who beat Valkyries in a close 19-12 game.

The old boys ende their tournament on Saturday. Hamlet, Denmark, won all of their games. The final against Pingvin, Sweden.
