How to watch World Rugby Sevens Sydney live and free
The Kiwis are proving hard to catch in both competitions this season after producing a shutout in Hamilton. Here's how to watch the World Rugby Sevens Sydney leg.
With the Tokyo Olympics looming large on the horizon, the World Rugby Sevens Sydney offers the Australian teams a chance to continue preparations and try to close the gap.
After a silver medal behind South Africa in the opening men's round in Dubai, New Zealand have won the past two gold medals to stake their early claim for 2020 World Rugby Sevens favouritism. South Africa and France are second and third respectively.
An improved bronze medal showing in Hamilton lifted the Aussies up to fifth in the standings and they will be hoping to climb even higher when they compete in front of their home fans.
It's a similar story on the women's side, where the Kiwis took out bronze in the first round in the US before reeling off three straight golds to firmly take over top spot. The Australian women are their closest pursuers, 12 points behind in second with 4 events remaining.
Below is all the information you need to tune in.
