Team name 
The national sevens side is known as Australia and, as confirmed by captain Sharni Williams, does not have a nickname as of 2015. The team is sometimes referred to as the Pearls in sections of the media, but that name refers to Australia's developmental sevens side that participates in domestic tournaments rather than the official national team.
