Stadium Ciudad de Malaga welcomed the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series to Spain for the first time as the third round of the 2022 Series began with a thrilling opening day.

Current men’s and women’s Series leaders South Africa and Australia remain on course for a third tournament win of the campaign at the HSBC Spain Sevens – Malaga.

Top women’s seeds Australia needed to dig deep to beat Ireland at the end of day one but finished Friday as one of four unbeaten women’s sides. With four Cup quarter-finals places still up for grabs, there is plenty to play for on day two.


The action continues in Malaga on Saturday as pool play is concluded in both the men’s and women’s tournaments.

Day two will get underway at 09:00 local time (GMT +1) when Brazil take on England and both teams need a win to have a chance of reaching the women’s Cup quarter-finals as one of the two best third-placed finishers.

France and Russia battle it out for top spot in Pool C after that before debutants Poland take on Canada with second place in Pool B at stake.

Ireland then take on Belgium at 10:28 local time, while the women’s pool stage action will conclude when hosts Spain take on Series leaders Australia.

The women’s Cup quarter-finals get underway at 14:53 local time (GMT +1) when the USA take on the best third-placed team.
