Cal has won 17 out of 20 matches against its East Bay rival in the past twenty-years. The game begins at 1 p.m. PT.

China Women Triumphant - China emerged as the winner in the qualifier for next season's 2019 twelfth spot on the World Rugby Women's Sevens Circuit by defeating South Africa 31-14 in Hong Kong.  Earlier, the Springboks defeated Kenya 12-7 while China had an easy victory against Belgium 22-5. The event also slotted the placements for five teams in the July Women's Sevens World Cup (i.e.; places 12 through 16) to be played in San Francisco.
