Rugby Sevens

A fast, action-packed variant of rugby union played between some of the sport's best nations on a full-size rugby pitch.

The Commonwealth Games have seen some high-octane performances in rugby sevens since its first Games in 1998 and England have provided some top quality players from the start - Danny Care, Ben Gollings, Josh Lewsey and Matthew Tait to name but a few.

With the Commonwealth Games there is always the spice of the England-Australia rivalry and when it comes to rugby it gets even better. History is on England's side, with memorable wins over their arch rivals at Manchester 2002 to secure the Rugby Sevens Plate, then adding more misery in their own back yard - three years after the 15s side had won the World Cup - with a 14-12 pool stages victory at the Telstra Dome in Melbourne, 2006.

A high-octane, fast-paced and captivating sport to watch, it is not to be missed.

Did you know: Matthew Tait completed a hat-trick of tries in the final minute of England's quarter-final against Samoa to win the game 17-14. He went on to feature in the Rugby Union World Cup final with England in 2007.

The governing body for England’s rugby sevens team is the RFU.
