The Black Ferns won on home soil last weekend and Australia is hoping to do the same at Sydney 7s this weekend, January 31 – February 2. The Hamilton and Sydney events were the first tournaments to be played across a new and exciting three-day format, which was introduced for these particular events.
This new format see teams play two pool matches on the first day, their third pool match and “best of” match on day two and Finals on day three.
Sydney Sevens is the fifth tournament in the women’s series and the fourth in the men’s this season. The series culminates in Paris on May 30-31 before 24 men’s and women’s teams will travel to Japan for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Rugby Australia and World Rugby will, together in partnership, support the ongoing bushfire situation in Australia this weekend by donating $1,000 for every try scored by Australia’s men and women to the bushfire relief fund.
