    Australia’s women’s rugby sevens team to headline Sydney tournament

    AUSTRALIANS will get to see their Olympic champion women’s team in competition for the first time next year with Sydney Sevens all-but confirmed as a new leg of the women’s world tour.

    World Rugby boss Brett Gosper said a combined men’s and women’s tournament was almost locked in for Sydney in February, while also slapping down former Hockeyroos coach Ric Charlesworth for calling Australia’s women’s sevens gold medal as “soft”.

    That is going to be an awesome weekend in Sydney. If it not already sold out, it won't be long.

    Great work by the ARU to get that one sorted

    Tickets not on sale yet - don't scare me like that! I am expecting tickets to sell more quickly than last time though - I talked to a lot of people in Sydney who wanted to go but didn't realise it would sell out and were too late.

    The ARU was already talking about making it a round of the women's World Series at the tournament in February - the girls got a great reaction during their exhibition matches. Personally I'd like to see all World Series tournaments paired up like that (currently only Dubai does it) but I don't know if that's on World Rugby's radar.
