Women’s Rugby 7s – each team has seven players on the pitch. For every match, except for the final, there are two halves of seven minutes each, playing for a total of 14 minutes, and extra time can be added if needed.
The final match is a little longer, consisting of two 10-minute halves and any extra time necessary.

The Australian Women’s 7s squad has been one of the strongest teams worldwide since they started competing internationally in 2008. Since 7s Rugby became officially recognised as an Olympic sport, women’s 7s rugby has only increased in recognition and participation. It’s one of the fastest-growing women’s team sports, worldwide!
Whether it’s the World Cup Rugby Sevens Series, the Olympics, or other international competitions on a global stage, Australia’s team has always competed against the best as one of the best.
To be officially recognised to be an Olympic sport means that there’s a certain level of elite athleticism in speed, power and skill, required to excel. It shows that while rugby sevens is a fun, social game that you can play with your mates, it’s also a sport that has unstoppable levels of personal growth when you dedicate yourself to competing. That’s the Olympics, after all – to push the boundaries of what a person can achieve, and stunning the world by achieving what was previously thought impossible. Women’s Rugby 7s can take female athletes all the way to the top!
There are many tournaments held nationally and internationally. One of the highlight games hosted on Aussie soil is the HSBC Sydney 7s, inviting the world to come play on our home ground on an exciting rugby weekend filled with live music, competitive spirit, and summer sport.
