Women’s Commonwealth Games Sevens Pools
World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont, said: “Rugby sevens has been represented at every Commonwealth Games since the sport was first introduced in 1998, with some of the biggest names in our sport having competed at this fantastic tournament. It has also served as a launchpad for young and aspiring talent across the global game where players have gone on to become stars.
“Both the men’s and women’s Olympic champions will be in action as part of a strong lineup over what promises to be a thrilling three days of fast-paced, high-octane rugby sevens action in Coventry.”
If you don’t know the history of the Commonwealth Games sevens tournaments it’s worth looking into ahead of the tournament in Coventry. However, here’s a spoiler – the last time the event was on British soil, South Africa men took a 17-12 victory in the gold medal game, handing the All Blacks their first loss at the Commonwealth Games Sevens… In their 31st match. Wow!
