Rugby sevens is a faster and more free-flowing game of rugby than the fifteens. Played with seven per side on the same-sized field as fifteens means fewer defenders with more space to cover and a far faster pace.

Rugby Sevens: Skills, Tactics and Rules describes how to enjoy playing sevens and also how to win. All aspects of the game are covered including choosing a team, coaching and conditioning, set formations and technical elements, team tactics and the role of team captain and much more.

The book includes 100 photographs of international male and female players in action, including team USA. Utah-born Maka Unufe of the USA Rugby Sevens is on the front cover.

  • A Brief History of Sevens
  • A Sevens Team
