The Rugby Sevens Difference
The heart of Rugby Sevens lies in its distinction from the traditional 15-a-side format. Boasting teams of just seven players each, the Sevens series is renowned for its breathtaking pace and dynamic gameplay. In stark contrast, the Fifteens leagues offer a more strategic and structured spectacle, showcasing the diverse range of skills that rugby demands.
As a testament to the Botswana Rugby Union’s commitment to inclusivity, both men’s and women’s teams will take the field in both the Sevens series and Fifteens leagues. This platform allows women’s rugby to shine brightly and underscores the union’s dedication to gender parity in sports.
