The 2010 Premiership Rugby Sevens Series, (known for sponsorship reasons as the 2010 J.P Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s Series) was the inaugural Rugby Union 7-a-side competition for the twelve 2010–11 Aviva Premiership Clubs. It took place during the months of July and August, was sponsored by J.P Morgan Asset Management, and the final was held at the Recreation Ground on 6 August 2010.[1]

Format[edit]

The twelve Premiership Clubs were split into three Groups – A, B and C – with each group playing on a consecutive Friday in July. Each team in the group played each other once, to the International Rugby Board Laws of the Game - 7s Variations. Based on the result, teams would receive:

  • 4 points for a win
  • 2 points for a draw
  • 1 bonus point for a loss by seven points or less
  • 1 bonus point for scoring four or more tries in a match

Following all the games, the winner and runner up in the group would progress to the final. In the final, the 6 teams (3 Winners and 3 Runners up) are split into 2 pools. Again teams play each other once and points are awarded based on the result. Following the culmination of this stage the winners of each pool progress to the final, the winner of that game being declared the champions.
