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.
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.
