USA Sevens Rugby TicketsEstablished in the United States in 2004, the USA Sevens Rugby competition pits its men’s and women’s teams against other participating countries in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series. Sevens rugby differs from traditional rugby in two main ways. First, it uses only seven players per team on the field at one time as opposed to the typical 11, a similarity with American football. Second, it is a touch form of the sport as opposed to the traditional tackle form. During this series, the USA will fight to defeat the current men’s world champions from Fiji as well as current women’s world champions from New Zealand. The multi-round competition leading to the Rugby Sevens World Series also serves as a build-up for the upcoming Olympic Games. The women’s competition uses an eight-round competition while the men’s competition uses a 10-round competition. Of those tournaments, six will be combined men’s and women’s events.

What is a USA Sevens Rugby game like?The game starts with two teams of seven players each taking the field. The playing positions in Rugby Sevens include center, fly-half, hooker, prop, loosehead, scrum-half, winger and tight head. The prop forward stands in the front row of a scrummage. A team is allowed five reserves and five substitutions. Unlike traditional rugby rules, a player may re-enter after being subbed out. This fast-paced game allows no forward passes and consists of only two seven-minute halves and a half-time of one to two minutes. During the championship final, the game consists of two 10-minute halves.
How do you score in a USA Sevens Rugby game?The rugby sevens scoring system consists of four types of score. A team earns five points for a try, which bears similarity to a touchdown in American football; two points for a conversion, which bears similarity to the extra point attempt after a touchdown; and three points for penalties and drop goals, which are similar to American football field goals. Unlike American football, in rugby, the conversion must occur within 30 seconds of scoring a try and must be a drop goal rather than a place kick. Instead of a kick-off, play begins with a scrum between three players from each team. The players go head to head and interlock in a battle for the ball. During the scrummage, the ball typically gets passed between players, and scoring attempts begin once a player successfully navigates the ball outside of the circle.
