Rugby 7s at the Commonwealth Games

Rugby sevens, a lightning-paced version of the game of Rugby Union, is one of the core sports of the Commonwealth Games.

The sport of 7's Rugby is popular among Commonwealth Games nations, and the majority of the teams competing at the Commonwealth Games are ranked among the world’s best.

1998 was the first Commonwealth Games in which a Rugby 7s competition was held, and the sport has been included in all Games since. The first women's competition was held in 2018.
