SINGAPORE, 8 April 2023 – The highly anticipated HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens is back on Singapore shores (and pitch)! Day one of the ninth round of the Series at Singapore Sports Hub’s National Stadium absolutely delivered with nail-biting matches, epic tries and last minute upsets.


Top-ranked heavyweights New Zealand, South Africa and Australia furiously battled it out in Pool A, dubbed the Pool of Death, in a spectacle epitomising world-class rugby action. Australia and New Zealand (from Pool A) made it through to the quarter-finals, alongside Argentina and Samoa who topped their respective pools with perfect win records, and France, Fiji, Uruguay, and Great Britain with their well-deserved wins.

Ruggers in arms show their team support

Widely known as Family Sevens, we saw the strength of the rugby crowd emanate through the roof of the National Stadium with fans of all ages strutting their stuff with vibrant 80s inspired costumes and an appearance of bumblebees! Fans also brought flags and hand-made posters to show support for their favourite teams. They were captivated by a myriad of activities, from family-friendly Roller-Disco Zone, food from the likes of Meat Smith, The Travelling C.O.W. (Chef on Wheels) and Burnt Ends Bakery, live music from local pop musicians, and a chance to meet Rugby Legends such as South Africa’s Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira. We even spotted some chilling out at the world’s first half-pipe surfing machine Surf at The Stingray® and at the Lazy River at Splash-N-Surf to beat the heat!


The final day commences at 10.50am local time (GMT+8) on Sunday with Canada v Kenya. The quarter-finals begin at 12.18pm with Samoa v Uruguay followed by Argentina v Australia, France v Fiji, and New Zealand v Great Britain. The semi-finals take place at 4.13pm and the moment we’ve all been waiting for – the gold medal match – kicks off at 7.28pm.
