NEWS: The annual Australian National Sevens Championship returns to Adelaide on Saturday.

The Championship is a part of the growing Australian domestic Sevens calendar as more and more Australians participate in the truncated version of Rugby’s global game.

Squad members from the Qantas Australian Women’s team will be representing their various teams including Dominique Du Toit, Mahalia Murphy, Shanice Parker, Laura Waldie and Shenae Ciesiolka.

Teams will compete from across the country including National Indigenous, Australian University’s and the Australian Services Rugby Union alongside State and Territory sides to be crowned National champions.  

ARU General Manager, High Performance, Ben Whitaker: "The National Sevens Championship is a key step in the elite pathway of Rugby Sevens and I know teams have been preparing long and hard for these tournaments.

"The Sport continues to grow in the afterglow of Rugby’s debut at this year’s Rio Olympic Games and there will be players who could put out performances that catch the eyes of our Head Coaches of the International Sevens side.

"The standards of Rugby Sevens are incredibly high across all states, not just central to your traditional Rugby nurseries that will make for some fantastic matches.

"Additionally we have the Armed Services, Australian Universities and National Indigenous teams being represented providing a very unique and accessible elite pathway opportunity for many players,"
