2018

The 2019 New Zealand Sevens was the third tournament within the 2018-19 World Rugby Sevens Series and the twentieth edition of the New Zealand Sevens. It was held on 26-27 January 2019 at FMG Stadium Waikato, Hamilton.[1]

An invitational competition for women's teams, the Women's Fast Four, was held alongside the men's tournament as the precursor to fully integrated men's and women's tournaments planned for Hamilton in 2020.[2]

Format

The teams are drawn into four pools of four teams each. Each team plays every other team in their pool once. The top two teams from each pool advance to the Cup bracket where teams compete for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medals. The bottom two teams from each group go to the Challenge Trophy bracket.

Teams

Fifteen core teams played in the tournament along with one invitational team, the highest-placing non-core team of the 2018 Oceania Sevens Championship, Tonga:[3]
