The final squads for the HSBC USA Sevens at the Sam Boyd Stadium have been announced 24 hours before kick-off on Friday 1 March. 


The HSBC USA Sevens is the fifth round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and marks the halfway point in the season.  

New Zealand and USA sit joint top of the standings, the USA making history becoming series leaders after Cape Town for the first time in the world series. 

Securing victory in Las Vegas last year by defeating Argentina 21-0, The Eagles are reigning champions and having featured in all four finals of the world series this season, Mike Friday’s side will be eager for victory in front of the home crowd. 


There is everything to play for this season as teams compete not only to take home the coveted series title but also secure their place at Tokyo 2020 with the world series acting as principle route for Olympic qualification.

Defending HSBC Sydney Sevens champions New Zealand will join Spain, Canada and Samoa in Pool A.

Pool B features the USA, France, Argentina and Kenya. 

Sydney bronze medallists England head Pool C and will face South Africa, Japan and invitational side Chile. 

Pool D includes Fiji, currently third in the series standings, Australia, Wales and Scotland.
