Sevens Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and Queensland has been leading the way in the short format of the game.
The Queensland Premier Rugby Sevens competition showcases the finest Rugby Sevens talent in Queensland and is the pinnacle of Sevens competitions for men in the state.
Beginning in 2018, the three-legged tournament features all nine Queensland Premier Rugby clubs, while invitational teams including the Northern Territory, Iconz and the Australian Barbarians have also competed.
Sunnybank claimed the inaugural title in 2018, with Wests taking out the silverware in 2019.
The competition has featured a number of Australian Sevens representatives, while it also serves as a springboard to higher honours with a number of Premier Sevens standouts rewarded with training contracts with the Australian team.
Aside from the Queensland Premier Sevens, teams can also compete in Sevens tournaments across the state including at Noosa, Roma and Townsville.
Aside from the AON Uni 7s, many Rugby clubs also field women’s teams across various social and competitive tournaments within Queensland as well as interstate.
The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) Sevens Program also sees aspiring men’s and women’s players train at Ballymore under the guidance of Queensland Rugby Union (QRU) high performance staff, as they chase their dream of representing Australia.
