The Rugby Sevens format is fast becoming one of the most popular sporting codes in the world, and is now ready to host the twentieth edition of their World Series.
The 2019 Men’s Rugby 7’s will continue with a visit to Las Vegas, USA, for three fast paced days from 2-4 March (AEDT), and you won’t miss the action when watching at home or streaming the matches live to a mobile device.
2019 Rugby World Sevens Preview
This will be the twentieth edition of the Rugby World Sevens, and South Africa will enter as the reigning champions after besting Fiji for total points on the season by the slimmest of margins, 182-180, thanks largely to their victory in the finale at Paris and Fiji finishing fifth on that same weekend. For South Africa it was the second consecutive Rugby Sevens championship and third overall. As for team Fiji, it was a disappointing way to finish but they did take the Gold in five of the ten events, and have been a formidable side for the past seven years so look for them to be there in the mix this time out.
When: March 2-4, 2019
Where: Las Vegas, USA
For the men, the number one seed is South Africa, which was the most consistent side throughout the Sevens Series this past year. Fiji are the form side heading into the tournament having won Gold at half of the stops last time around. Fiji will look to get off to a faster start, after failing to finish higher than fourth in the first three stops last year, Dubai, Capetown and Sydney. As for the Australian men, they are ranked fourth entering 2018-19 with their best efforts last season being a win at Sydney which was followed by a Semi Final loss in Hamilton. For the women, Australia enters this year’s tournament the defending champs having won at both Dubai and Sydney, but are the number two seed behind New Zealand, who finished strong in winning the last three events. With the added stop in the USA there will be six series total for the women, and they will play on the same weekend as the men’s teams in Sydney (Feb 1-2). The Aussie women did beat New Zealand in the Final at the Rio Olympics, and will look to duplicate that this time out, but don‘t look for the Rugby Sevens on Free to air in Australia.
