RUGBY SEVENS
Information about the Rugby Sevens including the Rugby World Cup Sevens

This is rugby with wings on!

Fast and furiously paced, the games are much shorter and only last around 15 minutes in total (7 minutes per half). This allows a Sevens competition to be completed in a weekend.

The Rugby World Cup Sevens is held every 4 years ( 2018, 2020 etc).

Sevens Rugby was also included in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero.

Sevens World Series Tornaments are held each year. There are between 7 and 11 rounds of the World Rugby Sevens Series each year.

Previously Sevens World Series has included:

  • Australia - Gold Coast Sevens
  • Dubai Sevens
  • South Africa Sevens
  • New Zealand Wellington Sevens
  • USA Sevens - Las Vegas
  • Hong Kong Sevens
  • Japan Sevens - Tokyo
  • Scotland Sevens - Glasgow
  • England London Sevens

Teams that play include Argentina, Australia, England, Fiji, France, Kenya, New Zealand, Samoa, Scotland, South Africa, United States (replaced Canada) and Wales. Extra teams are invited according to the number of games to be played in each tournament.

Sevens Rugby has been included in the Commonwealth Games in the past and may be again in the future.
