Rugby sevens at the 2014 Commonwealth Games was the fifth time in the competition's history that the event took place. The tournament's preliminaries took place on 26 July, with the classification matches, quarter finals, semi finals and medal matches the following day.[1] The venue for the competition was Ibrox Stadium. South Africa beat the reigning champions New Zealand in the final on the 27 July, beating their opponents 17-12. It was the first time that New Zealand had been beaten in any game since the inception of rugby sevens at the Commonwealth Games in 1998, ending their 30 match win streak and marking the first time any other nation had won the competition.

171,000 people attended the two-day competition, a record for the sport.[2]

The sixteen teams were divided into four pools of four nations, with each nation playing their other pool opponents once, every nation playing three times during the group stages. Nations were awarded 3 points for a win, 2 for a draw and one point for a loss, the top two nations of every pool advance to the quarter finals of the medal competition. The winners of each pool then faced the runners up of a different pool in the quarter finals in a straight single elimination knockout competition. The winners moved on to the semi finals, with the winners then moving onto the final, and the losers of the semi finals contesting a play off for the bronze medal.

Points System

The points system was the same one used in most sevens competitions, including the IRB Sevens World Series:

  • 3 points for a win
  • 2 points for a draw
  • 1 point for losing

Pool stage[edit]

The round robin stage was played on July 26, 2014. All teams played three matches, with the top two in each pool qualifying for the medal competition, and the bottom two qualifying to the bowl competition.[7][8]
