To take account of the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic which affected some teams ability to participate in some rounds of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2022, and in the interests of fairness, a unique ranking points system was applied to the 2022 Series which sees only the best seven out of the nine tournament results count towards the Series ranking for each team.

*Great Britain participated in the opening two rounds of the Series in Dubai, as part of the standing agreement to play the full calendar year 2021, before reverting to compete as national unions for the remainder of the 2022 Series, with England, Scotland and Wales participating in the men’s Series. England, Scotland and Wales received 33% each of Great Britain’s points from rounds one and two in Dubai.
