Black Ferns Sevens finish the year on top.

The mighty Black Ferns Sevens have opened their 2018/19 Women’s World Rugby Sevens Series campaign with back-to-back tournament victories, leaving them sitting comfortably on top of the overall standings going into 2019.

The world champion team opened the series with an impressive victory in Glendale, Colorado in October, beating hosts USA 33-7 in the final.

At the following event in Dubai, the Black Ferns Sevens again proved their elite status, beating Canada 26-14 in front of a capacity crowd in the final.

These two tournament victories have put New Zealand on top of the standings with the maximum 40 points; they lead Canada (34), USA (32) and Australia (28) in the chase for series glory.

There are four rounds remaining in the 2018/19 Women’s World Rugby Sevens Series, with events being hosted in Sydney (AUS), Kitakyushu (JPN), Langford (CAN) and Paris (FRA).

Before that though, the Black Ferns Sevens will play in New Zealand for the first time ever when they host England, France and China as part of a ‘Fast Four’ tournament. This event will run alongside the New Zealand Sevens in Hamilton on 26-17 January, 2019.
