Rugby World Cup Sevens

The Rugby World Cup Sevens is the premier international Rugby Sevens competition. The event is organised by the sport's governing body the International Rugby Board (IRB) and is contested by the Men's and Women’s national sevens teams every four years.

The inaugural Men’s tournament was held in 1993 in Scotland, the birthplace of Rugby Sevens. In the Men's tournament, New Zealand (2001 and 2013) and Fiji (1997 and 2005) have both won the title twice. Australia has reached the Final twice, but lost on both occasions (1993 and 2001).

Women's Rugby World Cup Sevens debuted in 2009 in Dubai, with Australia beating New Zealand in the Final to win the inaugural edition. New Zealand beat Canada in the Final in Moscow in 2013.
