The HSBC Sevens World Series tour is made up of nine events throughout the season, taking in nine countries and five continents.
Each individual tournament involves 16 teams – with the exception of the 24 team bonanza in Hong Kong – the 12 IRB sevens core sides and four other invited sides, who all accumulate points.
The nine tournament venues all have an individual character and offer something unique to players and fans. From the history-steeped Hong Kong tournament to a packed Twickenham for the London Sevens, the surroundings may change, but the competition is consistently fierce as teams hunt points for the series title.
Fans festivals, beer tents, dancing fancy-dress in the crowd, family areas, and try-stuffed action on the pitch, means there is fun to be had for sevens crowds all over the world.
2011/2012 HSBC WORLD SERIES STANDINGS
The Qantas Men's Sevens side staged an incredible resurgence of form to re-establish themselves as a major contender on the HSBC Sevens World Series circuit during season 2009/10, however in 2010/11 the team has seen many new faces join the ranks following an exodus of players to FxPro Super Rugby teams.
Following an up-and-down start to the current Series, Australia took out the title in Tokyo in early 2012 to show the Rugby World that along with their 'big brothers' - the Qantas Wallabies - the youthful Aussie outfit weren't just out to make up the numbers.
Under the guidance of former Sevens star Michael O'Connor and experienced-captain Ed Jenkins, Australia have continued their rise up the Sevens ranks to now firmly sit as Cup Contenders come each respective World Series leg.
