Premier Rugby SevensPremier Rugby Sevens are a competition featuring 7-a-side rugby teams from around the world playing a shortened variant of the traditional game. The tournaments are organised by SANZAAR, the sport’s regional governing body which covers South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. Teams participating in the Premier Rugby Sevens are the Australia Wallabies, New Zealand All Blacks, Argentina Pumas, Fiji Warriors, South Africa Springboks, Japan Sunwolves, France Barbarians, Italy Zebre, Scotland Warriors, Wales Dragons, Samoa Manu, and Tonga Chiefs. The Premier Rugby Sevens season usually takes place over a two-month time period from October to December. Each of the twelve teams in the competition will play a round of eight tournaments in each of the host nations. The top four teams after the round robin progress to the knockout stages, with the two semi-final winners meeting in the final to decide the champion of the tournament. Current players to watch include Australia’s Quade Cooper and Israel Folau, England’s Chris Ashton, New Zealand’s Sonny Bill-Williams, Wales’s Alex Cuthbert and South Africa’s Bryan Habana. The tournament has been held since 2014, with previous winners including Australia (four times) and South Africa (twice). However, since 2019 Argentina, have beaten the likes of Australia and New Zealand to become the champions for the first time, cementing their place as one of the World’s leading rugby sevens teams. The appeal of the Premier Rugby Sevens is the sheer skills and athleticism of the players combined with some of the most popular teams in international rugby, engaging in a fiercely contested tournament that is truly worthy of being called a world-class event. Whether you are a die-hard rugby fan, a casual viewer, or an occasional sevens enthusiast, this is a league that will surely entice you with its top-level athletes striving to be crowned the champion of the Premier Rugby Sevens.
