With so much action over the next three days, fans of top-class Rugby Sevens are probably wondering how they can catch our national Men's and Women's team live from Dubai.

For the Qantas Australian Men's Sevens side, the Dubai Sevens is the second stop of nine in the 2014/15 HSBC Sevens World Series calendar. Into Head Coach Geraint John's squad come Greg Jeloudev, Allan Fa'alava'au and Alex Gibbon, with all of the tournament broadcast live on FOX SPORTS 2 from 3.50pm AEDT on Friday.

The Men's Pool C campaign in Dubai starts with Kenya (6.36pm AEDT), before games with the USA (9.36pm AEDT) and England (3.31am AEDT). The top two in each pool qualify for the Cup Quarter-Finals. 

Finals day for the Men will also be broadcast live on FOX SPORTS on Saturday from 4.20pm AEDT.
