The IRB Sevens World Sevens so far

There's been a bit of a break on the Sevens circuit after the first two tournaments produced some thrilling games. Next up, the teams head to Wellington before another big party in Las Vegas shortly after.

The series kicked off in Dubai to the usual fanfare and expectation as the big five aimed to have a real crack at taking the title this time around. England proved to be the surprise package with not only some sensational rugby on show, but also a new jersey that turned out to be their lucky charm.

After surprisingly losing to Portugal, they came back to beat New Zealand and then Samoa in the final, all while wearing the bright orange and yellow kit that seemed to spark life into their blisteringly quick outside backs.

Heading to George in South Africa, England were on the radar as it looked to be another good season for them. They went down to a determined New Zealand side who actually won the tournament with a penalty drop-goal, something rarely seen in Sevens rugby.

With just two legs played, that leaves the series wide open as there's still a long way to go. Wellington is up next, a venue that is notorious for it's incredible party atmosphere and fancy dress culture throughout the weekend. If you're in the area, best you get planning as that starts on the weekend of the 4th Feb.

After that, it's the bright lights of Las Vegas as the USA Sevens looks to up the ante once again and put on another spectacular tournament in the city that never sleeps. We've got a great competition coming up for that one, so keep a look out over the next week or so. Match tickets, flights, etc are all included.

For now, after a few days that included some nasty stuff, this video features some brilliant running rugby so if you like Sevens, and like seeing the ball do the work and the gasmen finish out wide, have a watch.

Note: Thanks to the IRB

  • Highly irregular behaviour, kicking a drop goal in Sevens. Whatever next. Tsk.

  • Not rolling away? That seemed awfully harsh... maybe the refs are pickier about that in sevens?

  • If anything I'd say playing the ball on the ground, as he made more than one rugby move whilst on the ground.

  • Can't wait for Vegas! The only good rugby we get all year. The IRB should really look into getting more games in the USA.

  • Nice for England. Hope it is a good sign for the upcoming WC.

  • Loved Ben Ryan's face, guess he was pretty pissed with the Blacks taking a kick at goal, you can't finish a match with a penalty!!!
