WOMEN’S SEVENS WORLD SERIES 2014/2015

Now in its third year, the 2014/15 IRB Women's Sevens World Series will be the first ever as part of the Olympic qualification process. New Zealand has won the previous two Sevens World Series, but the Aussies are closing the gap year-by-year. Last year, the Kiwis beat Tim Walsh's side to the title by four points. This year, there will be six stops in the series. The season kicks off in December with a trip to Dubai, before it heads to Sao Paulo in Brazil. North America is the next stop, with trips to Atlanta in the USA and Vancouver in Canada on the horizon. The series climaxes in Europe, with visits to London and Amsterdam, with the top four countries earning automatic qualification for the Rio Olympics.
