National Women’s Sevens

The National Women's Sevens Championship is a national residential tournament for female players from state/territory and affiliate representative teams, conducted annually by Australian Rugby Union to contest the title of Australia’s best Women’s Sevens side.

This exciting two-day tournament was launched in 2012, with more than 160 players across 14 teams descending on St. Ignatius College, Riverview. With the inclusion of Sevens in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, it is an important tournament for players with national selectors in attendance, including Women’s Sevens coach Chris Lane. 

 

 While State teams were chosen through tournament participation, trial days and selection camps, players competing at the national tournament now have the opportunity to be invited to train with the Qantas Women’s Sevens squad.
 
The tournament features state teams from across the country, the National Indigenous Women’s Sevens team, Australian Services Rugby Union side and international competitors Papua New Guinea, plus the inclusion of Oztag and Touch Football representative teams for the 2013 Championships.  
 
The tournament will also feature several players who currently play for Qantas Women’s Sevens, with Rebecca Tavo (Qld), Emilee Cherry (Touch), Sharni Williams (ACT) and new schoolgirl recruits Brooke Anderson (Oztag) and Tiana Penitani (NSW).
 
The National Women's Rugby Sevens Championship is an important element of the Player Pathway at national, provincial, regional and affiliate level with the purpose to provide an effective platform for:
  • The identification and development of each state/territories talented Sevens players, coaches, managers, referees and other officials
  • The recruitment and retention of players, coaches, referees, managers and other officials
  • The benchmarking of talented Women's Sevens players
  • Assisting with the improvement of playing standards and development of the game in all participating states/territories and affiliates
  • Assisting with the selection of the National Women's Sevens squad

The 2013 National Women’s Rugby Sevens Championship ran 13-14 April at St. Ignatius College, Riverview, Sydney, and was won by ACT., winning 24-22 over tournament newcomers Australian Touch Football. For the full results of the 2013 National Women’s Rugby Sevens Championship, click here.
