A look back at the 2018-19 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series

With the 15 aside season now underway, the Black Ferns Sevens and All Blacks Sevens will have debriefed the 2018-19 HSBC World Series and will be looking to come back even stronger next season.

The Black Ferns Sevens had a dominant season. The team won four out of six events, and took out the overall series title by 10 points. Tyla Nathan Wong finished as the leading points scorer across all teams for the season, and Michaela Blyde finished second on the try scoring ladder. The women went one better than their second place overall finish in 2017-18 title, and will be looking to repeat their efforts before the 2020 Olympic Games.

The All Blacks Sevens had a mixed season after a number of injuries meant the team could not quite find the consistency that lead to their success at the Rugby Sevens World Cup last year. Highlights included wins in Dubai and Sydney. Scott Curry became just the sixth player to play 50 tournaments for New Zealand, and Andrew Knewstubb finished as the leading points scorer across all teams for the season.

The 2020 Olympic Games are now under a year away, and with the Black Ferns Sevens and All Blacks Sevens securing qualification, all eyes will turn to the 2019-20 HSBC World Series in preparation for one of the pinnacle Rugby Sevens events.
