Rugby Sevens is only for Men and was introduced to the Commonwealth Games in 1998 in Kuala Lumpur.
Rugby Sevens takes two teams of seven men and gives them just 14 minutes to win the game. It’s all about teamwork, skills and stamina. And, with just seven players per team, everyone’s got a job to do.
Rugby Sevens is a fast and furious contest with high point-scoring, hard hits and heroic sprints.
Most of the world’s top Rugby Sevens nations will compete at Glasgow 2014. With the sport set to make its Olympic Games debut in Rio de Janeiro, Glasgow 2014 will provide a new focus – as the best teams in the Commonwealth aim to get an early foothold for the next decade of competition.
Forty-five games will be contested over two days of fierce competition at Ibrox Stadium, as 16 teams strive for that single gold in front of packed audiences. Can Scotland use its home advantage to take that gold?
