NEWS: The Rugby Union Players Association (RUPA) has announced the five finalists from both the Australian Men’s and Women’s Sevens teams for the Rugby Sevens Players' Player of the Year Award.

Players in both the men’s and women’s teams vote for their team’s most valuable player at the conclusion of each Sevens World Series tournament, so consistency is key to claiming the prize.

With both teams currently preparing for the first leg of the Sevens World Series in Dubai this announcement is a timely reminder of how much individual players have achieved in this historic year for Rugby Sevens.

ARU General Manager High Performance, Ben Whitaker said:" There have been some fantastic moments for our Sevens teams this year and some amazing individual efforts from our players.

"From the women winning gold at the Rio Olympic Games, to the men making the final against New Zealand at a thrilling Sydney Sevens, this year we witnessed some unforgettable milestones for Australian Sevens.

"I congratulate all players that have been nominated by their teammates for this award and look forward to seeing our teams perform during the 2016-2017 Sevens World Series which kicks off this weekend,"  

Both Australian Sevens teams will kick-off their 2016-2017 Sevens World Series campaigns at the Dubai Sevens from December 1-3. The Australian Women’s Sevens team is looking to become the first Australian team to win back-to-back Sevens World Series titles.
